While you guys have been celebrating XMas, I have been recording my guitars for the Avalon 2 album. I am still recording them in a rather unusual place and if you wanna check out some solos and vibes, go to the Official Avalon YouTube Channel for the iMoments clips I will be posting in the next 4-5 days. This is exclusive stuff, I will show my equipment, explain how it works and you get to see how I record my guitars. I also recommend that you sign up to the YouTube channel because in the next months there will be a lots of stuff in there (for example from Floor Jansen vocal sessions).
