Tentacle 3

Tentacle 3

Here commeth Tentacle 3.  I’ve had loads of short ideas buzzing around and finally got round to getting some of them recorded.

The details: I originally played the rhythm on v-drums, but it didn’t quite sound right for the laid back vibe i wanted, so I had a quick mess around on the cajon played using Vater cajon brushes

In the interests of going completely over the top, I double miked it! A bass drum mic at the back and a shure instrument mic at the front.  With a lather of reverb, I love the result!  I didn’t think a wooden box with a hole in could sound so cool!

I’ve also done my first ever short piano “solo” and, randomly, a shamisen solo (on keyboard of course).  These were unplanned or rehearsed, so are left in with warts and all.

Credit also goes to the Blackbird in my garden who features in the track too.
