This was the second year I’d worked on recording cover songs. I was learning a lot of new recording techniques but my playing suffered since my attention was elsewhere. Both songs are Metallica covers and “Orion” is one of my all-time favorite songs by the band.
2011 was the year that I first started recording cover songs. Other than playing in cover bands since high school, I’d not officially recorded covers all on my own. These are some of my most favorite songs to play and while looking back on it now there’s things I would do a little better, these songs came out very good for the lack of experience I had in recording and mixing at the time.
