An acoustic guitar being re-strung. An innocuous event under most circumstances. However in this case it heralds another stage in the production of The Cursing Stone's sophomore offering.

One more good session and all of the electric guitar parts will be complete. Next up is the inimitable clean & acoustic bits to add some lush textures.

After that comes all of the orchestral and piano arrangements, adding beautiful dynamics and harmony.
All of this before any of the vocals are even tracked.

With the end of year deadline closing fast, the band needs to ramp up their efforts to secure a release before Christmas. Good thing they work well under pressure.
