Spent the day playing bass in my friend's garage. I setup my Thunderfunk/Epifani rig, mic'ed with an Audix D6 (I think). And then we took a direct signal into the A Designs REDDI and then an API mic pre. I think it sounded pretty good.
When we were taking a break, Mark reminded me that a few years ago, we used to practice every weekend. That's pretty hard to believe.
I guess I've always known it, but stuff changes a lot. You just have to go on living and figuring it out the best you can.
