Well, fingerpicking work was severely hampered when I completely jacked up my thumb playing basketball. I got through another go-round of "Carousel" and the piano version of "This Old Road", and some more piano covers.

On my mind: microphones. The 1970s-era Akai microphones I have pick up spoken word and even vocals fairly well, but I've not managed yet to get them to pick up my guitar in anywhere close to acceptable, and the piezoelectric pickup I've had for years just doesn't do it for me either. It probably doesn't help that my pickups and sound card cost $20 each, but hey. I'll get there. Right now there's no point in rushing on any of that because I've certainly still got work to do ironing out and finishing a few of the songs.
