Track 6 has started to make its rounds through the other musicians on the project, and Rob has come back with a rough draft of some mandolin ideas.
Have a listen here:
Pretty cool to get a better idea of how this will come together, but with MIDI drums and a non-ideal mix, you can tell we still have a ways to go.
Rob’s part truly is a milestone though! Rob is currently in Brooklyn, and very busy with his other band, The Hollows. Getting a mandolin part is a huge achievement, and this is very promising for the project! Thanks Rob!
I’ve already given him some feedback, but the most important thing to keep in mind is that the MIDI drums are just placeholders. When Jake records actual drums, we might have to rewrite some of the mandolin licks to tag up appropriately. I expect we’ll have to iterate back and forth a few times to make sure the instrument parts don’t conflict.
I also thought I’d share the latest video from The Hollows, which actually has Rob in the spotlight! Check it out.
