So, I got a $23 microphone to record sound clips of the instruments we make. Just as a fun exercise, Aly recorded a few tracks of herself playing guitar and singing. Here is her cover of Sting’s “Fields of Gold,” inspired by Eva Cassidy:
Aly has a bit of a cold in this recording, but it turned out pretty well, especially for a cheap mic. Turns out it’s a pretty good vocal mic, but not so great for instruments. 😉 I had to learn a little production, plus how to obtain a mechanical license in order to share a cover song publicly. It was a fun little project.
Anyway, the gauntlet is down. I challenge Aly to write her own album next. She’ll have to make a better guitar than the cheap one she used to record this. C’mon, do it for the Company!
