In this series we'll look at several aspects of creating a 6-7 song EP. We'll cover tracking acoustic guitars, electric guitar, bass, and vocals with modest equipment, and then fill out the rest of the tracks with virtual instruments. I will be working with a drummer to program drums and then working with different members to fill out the rest of the instrumentation and vocals. 

In Part 4, we'll look at what goes into filling out the arrangement and orchestration for one of the songs on the EP. With very little input from the group on this track, I built out a thick orchestration. Check it out!
