Fiddlesticks.

My word.  I think I know what this project needs… more FIDDLE.

Carter (playing the guitar on the left) dropped some killer fiddle work onto track 7, and the results are impressive.

apparently this happens in alaska ALL THE TIME

apparently in Alaska, this sorta thing happens ALL THE TIME

The layer that the fiddle adds is great, and the sound is getting more and more authentic.  Will we fully nail bluegrass?  Well, probably not.  Carter and I had a good discussion about this, and it’s important to both of us that we strive for that bluegrass sound.  But, at the end of the day, we just want to create music that is our own.  Whatever that is, we’ll be proud of it.

Anyhow, here is the latest draft of track 7 with Carter’s fiddle.  It’s sounding real good… (keep in mind that we still need lyrics for the second half of the song!)

I guess part of me still thinks that the fiddle part would be ever-so-slightly cooler if it were played on this violin…

and yes, it’s electric

    The fiddle ups the coolness factor, for sure. Carter, you rock.
