Tracking America guitars and vocals on "Holiday" etc
Hey Geoff,

Any insights on how you mic'd and tracked acoustic guitars and harmony vocals on America stuff?

The guitars took on an entirely new type of silky sheen when you and George got involved with the Holiday album. I figured there was more to it than just mic selection.

The vocals seem to be tracked across lots of comps and nicely done overdub layers.

Have always wondered if you filled all 46 tracks of twin synchronized machines in the process of tracking those guys.

I’m curious about this as well!
