The Hazards of Recording, a Continuing Story...

Last night we got what was left of a snowstorm that hit the central midwestern states pretty hard. By the time it got to Ohio it was tame & picturesque in a Christmas card kind of way - just the thing to fire up some inspiration to record a few acoustic guitar solos (MP3s soon). Of course when it's cold outside the furnace comes on, usually right at that critical quiet spot in an otherwise inspired and unrepeatable take. As a "safety" measure I always click the furnace off during short winter home recording sessions. The problem is that last night I forgot to click the furnace back on after shutting the studio light off and hopping into bed. Needless to say, the "winter wonderland" I awoke to this morning was not a cheerful vista through the living room window!

Heh, yeah - I felt pretty stupid in the morning! I do miss the old woodstove on these cold nights

Get one of those old tiled stove-shelves (right out of Chekhov) and then you can sleep right on top of it. (Though you might have to share the space and a goose-down "pieziuch" with Ganya the coachman or Genya the kitchen wench.)
