It's obvious that @iwilleatyou didn't do the music for this one. I mean, he's soOOOO much better. Okay, enough of the flattery - he gets enough as it is. He wrote the words on my soundboard and wouldn't stop plastering stuff there until I made this. I'm trying to be funny...
Yeah, I’m a liar. I said I wouldn’t write any songs, and here I am.
And it’s Valentine’s Day.
Dean bass guitar
Ion electric drums
Zildjian low volume hi hat
Logic - celesta, vintage b3 organ, effects
Neewer NW-700 condenser mic
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface
lots of cables
I tried to imitate Logic’s drummer Kyle… I’m missing a lot of beats here and there though. Anyway, snare and kick recorded to one track. Crash cymbal to one track. Snare and toms at the end of the song to another track. Because at this point I can’t play everything simultaneously. Hi hat recorded with condenser mic, because it’s not electric. I don’t know where the original hi hat is. The volume for the parts should probably be adjusted. Like, why is the tom so loud. Next time I’ll try playing around with the control panel on the drum set.
After playing I saw that my palm was all scratched up. Turns out both sets of frets needed to be filed. And probably new strings too. I’ve never done any of this since getting them. Anyway, I’m taking a break from the guitars until my skin closes back up.
I’d like for the bass to sound better and louder. I tried using different effects, but making them louder just makes the bad playing sound more obvious. Kids, this is what happens when you don’t practice! lol Really, I haven’t played / practiced much of anything.
After uploading to Soundcloud, they suggested I tag it #metal and #hardrock. Sounds about right.
Feel free to comment whatever you wish. Feel free to listen or not. Feel free to offer tips on making the bass, drums, guitars, vocals, anything sound better. I won’t be offended by any words or criticism, and appreciate any thoughts and ideas. Trust me, I’ve been told before that my music was so bad it shouldn’t be made public (non-fawmer btw).
Thank you for reading and listening! 😀
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’m going to miss the pink on this site. Pink is one of my favorite colors.
