Quick recursive test

hope this doesn’t go all sideway!

"The Ghost Door" is the last song I wrote for this record (we were already recording it by then), which has a spare voice and ukulele basic part, with @dgans and Robert Wade playing acoustic guitar over it.

On this one, Myles Boisen adds just the right ethereal otherwordly brushstrokes to the portrait on his pedal steel guitar. See if you agree! (rough mix, work in progress, produced by David and Jeremy Goody, engineered by Jeremy):

The basic tracks for "Down to the Mountain" were very spare: Dan Brodnitz on grand piano and me singing. Then Javier Navarrette added percussion. Then @dgans added guitar. Then I recut my vocals and added some ukulele fills.

Now we have Myles Boisen gracing the track with his lap steel! Check it out (rough mix, work in progress, produced by David Gans and Jeremy Goody at Goody Sound Studio):

Another song from the record that was crying out for some pedal steel is "The Long Haired Kings." Check out how Myles Boisen took this one up a whole notch!

This is a rough mix, produced by @dgans and Jeremy Goody at Goody Sound Studio, with David on guitar and backing vocals, Javier Navarrette on percussion, Myles on pedal steel guitar, and myself on ukulele and lead vocals:

Just when I thought this trip couldn't get any finer, I've now had the pleasure of hearing Myles Boisen add lap steel and pedal steel parts to four of the songs on my record.

First, here's an updated rough mix of "Moses" (work in progress), featuring Myles on both on those instruments, along with @dgans on guitar, Dan Brodnitz on piano, and myself on vocals, co-produced by David and engineer Jeremy Goody at Goody Sound Studio:
