In May of 2005 I started working in earnest on this CD project. Since this is my first time actually trying to produce a digitally
recorded project, it has been a learning process!
I have been recording my own music for years, not very good recordings mind you, but still recording. Infact, a tape of
me singing gospel music was usually the gift mentioned everytime I would ask my Mother what she wanted as a gift. (Mother's
Day, Mom's Birthday, Christmas, ETC.) I made Mom several tapes and usually she listened to them every day.
But this project has been different, much different.
It has been a learning experience, from picking the right songs to include, to the arrangement of the songs, then learning
the songs on guitar, including lead, rythym and bass and also keyboard, then learning the vocals and harmony parts. Then came
the technical part, recording, mixing, editing, and mastering then usually, re-mixing and mastering! Sometimes, even having
to re-record the whole thing. After this, then I had to choose a title for the CD and design the CD cover.
There was a lot of work involved! There was also some setbacks and things that delayed the recording, including me and
my family moving, then having to set up my basement studio all over. There was also the point when my computer crashed, wiping
out all but two songs that I had been working on, but I was blessed in that I had two of them stored online.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that hopefully I have learned alot from this experience and the next time, things will
go smoother and turn out even better than this time! In the mean time, it's my prayer that you are blessed by this recording
and most of all that it exaults The Lord Jesus Christ and glorifies Him!
I AM TRULY "THANKFUL"
