Funk Cello

Recommended Posts

 After giving up on violin , I traded it for a cello. Mainly using it for backing on singer songwriter type stuff ,  but I thought I'd try something different.  I've been having a hard time mixing for mp3.  Sounds good in my room but the online conversions have been pretty rough .  Way too bassy and highs were weak. I could also hear the compression . I think I got closer in this instrumental , "any" feedback would be appreciated ...   Thanks   markfunk-cello[1]

Sounds really good Mark. Very clear and professional sounding mix. Instruments are jumping right out at me!

‘Love the mix and really dig that funky cello!  I don’t think I’ve ever heard anything like that before...very original.😊

Original as funk cello! I could hear a live band having a good go at this. I liked the guitar leads as well, tasty.

 

cheers,

 "Thanks" for the comments and for giving me a listen.  Midi keys and cello are both new to me , wish I had more time for the cello it's a really versatile instrument for Any type music.    mark

Your recording and mix is very good.  I also like your guitar playing -- terrific tone.  I enjoyed listening to this -- very well done.   ~Allan

Interesting tune, I like it though, sounds OK here on the Adam's.

I'm used to thinking Yo Yo Ma when I hear cello but you gave the instrument a new direction. Excellent performance and mix. I didn't think the song sounded too bassy at all.

That was a good listen Mark ! 

Truly nice funky beat. The Cello blends quite well and sounded quite saxophony at places (bends) 😄
