Now that the drums and bass are finished, it came time to record the guitar tracks.
One thing I over looked was that I’d never recorded with John K before. Which means I had no idea how precise he was with perfecting each note. At some points, we’d record some rhythm sections and John would hear an discrepancy when recording chords, so he had me recording each string separately, literally breaking up the chord and recording it note for note.
I’d never recorded like this in my life, everything had to be just right. If there was the slightest little problem, one that only John could hear, it had to be remedied!
It was at this point that I understood Def Leppard's frustrations when recording with Mutt Lange!
