Been away for a few years....Here is my cover version of the 1995 Goo Goo Dolls song "Name" done in my home studio last year using Sonar. Enjoy!

I like this, it has a nice sound to the mix, open and airy.  Good job, thanks for sharing.

Mark, it's good to hear from you again!  I've been to your website and seen that you had put up many new songs since my last visit.  You manage to make me appreciate songs that I've heard many times, but overlooked until you remade them.  As always, your mixes are professional and show what can be done with Sonar/CW.  To all others out there:  if you haven't visited Mark's site, then take a few minutes to listen to his work.  Most of you will find something there to marvel over.  Don't be a stranger!

Take care and thanks for your kind words!

Excellent job on the recording. You recorded that guitar? I never heard a finger noise at all! Again, excellent job. The mix is clean, clean, balanced. Great vocal performance too!!

Listening to 'Like A Son' nice guitar solo. Love that tone.

 

Lynn is right, some good music over there.

Mark, welcome back. Great cover and stellar vocals. Love the mix . Whatever delay time you have on that chorus vocal was extremely well chosen! You have a great voice.

cheers,

Thanks everyone. Believe it or not no guitars were harmed nor played in the making of this recording. All programmed on Sonar with MusicLab's Real Guitar.

The Goo Goo Dolls John Rezeznik uses alternative tunings on a lot of their songs. This particular song the tuning rendered my only acoustic almost unplayable. I also couldn't keep it in tune.

Using Real Guitar I was able to layer in a 12 string (which I do not own) and a few other guitars to fatten the mix up a little. Thanks for listening!
