I got a new toy today. A Zoom H2 recorder. I’ve had an eye on these for awhile, but had given up hope of ever owning one. It’s just never seemed crucial. It really wasn’t until Victoria and I formed Windhaven and, more recently, decided to start using backing tracks that I began to think of the H2 as something we really need.
Well, not long after getting the H2 today, I say it on the desk, started it to recording and grabbed my acoustic 12-string. I laid out a few bars of some improvised tune and then bounced the recording over to my laptop to listen to it. To say that I was pleased would be an understatement. I was relieved and felt somewhat vindicated.
