Today (Jan. 11) is the Anniversary of the Recording of Living Is Trying

Four years ago today we recorded what became the essential framework of what is now the album Living Is Trying. Here's a little behind-the-scenes of that day. Maybe you remember some of these photos from my social media, or maybe you're seeing all of these for the first time. 
One thing that struck me that I hadn't remembered is how many different guitars I used to track the various songs. There was that Old Kraftstman, which is the first picture here ("Madison"), my Martin (a lot of the others), Steffen's acoustic guitar, which I think was a Johnson ("Strong Words"), some classical guitar that was lying around (the second guitar on "Left Arm"), and my old Sigma ("On Wings"). 

Enjoy.
