Thanks, you just made my day. Personally, up here in the Northern hemisphere, I’m looking forward to some warmer days!
Sounds good Vaughn! Do tell, what are you doing?? I pushed the mix just enough to barely kiss Boz’s The Wall. The loudness clocks in around -15.71 LUFS. So there will be plenty of headroom for mastering.
Thanks! While I’d like to take credit, the lead is played by Bob - @StylesBitchley. In fact, you reminded me that I wanted to ask him what he plays, and all about his process and never did.
Bob? Care to enlighten us? I also used a couple of other of Bob’s tracks, like the cool answer-back piece under the 2nd verse and the mind blowing fill at the end of the “breather-break” just before the 3rd chorus.
The other guitars were done by my buddy Tony. He also sang and played the finger-picked acoustic, the “hook” from the original song, the jangly intro part, and some background pieces under the solo.
The only guitar I played on this one was the loop in the chorus. I found it early on and started using it as a “chorus” marker before we had vocal tracks and really grew to like it. So I used it.
The drums aren’t looped. They were done by a buddy on another forum. I specifically asked him to do a “simplified” version with minimal fills so I could build around it. But yeah, I was thinking an “up front” sound for this mix but am thinking more of an “ambient” pushed-back approach is a better fit thematically for this song.
Thanks for the listen and the input @Tesgin , I really appreciate it!
This forum is f’n awesome!
