Emotional Gtr [new mix]

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Update: I took Toms advice and made some adjustments to hopefully help when streaming from SoundCloud. Hope this one is a little better.

 

This was inspired by Kenny's post the other day. He graciously posted the piano backing track that he had played over. I happened to have my guitar in hand, and started playing over it when I was listening to the piano track. That's how this got started. I wanted to just have some fun, but as I got going with the project it just grew into it's own thing. So I made a deadline yesterday that today by noon that would be it! I will make the deadline, but I used almost every minute of it. : )

It's done all in Cakewalk. I used CW, Waves, IK plugins for the fx. I used Jamstix for the drums and that's the stock drum sounds.

And of course I welcome any and all comments. I'm here to learn and have some fun.

Again @Kenny Wilson, thanks for the inspiration. I really enjoyed doing this. : )

Hi Grem,

Lovely track, certainly was an emotional guitar in my opinion.

Great playing , a well balanced instrumental which I enjoyed very much and thought had ended too soon (so I played it again ;-).

Thanks for sharing.

Good Job!

regards

Thanks for the listen and the kind words Paul.

My wife wanted me to do something with the ending, she thought it ended to quickly too.

Thanks Kenny. I really enjoyed it. It was fun. That's why I posted, maybe a few others will get the itch too!

Nice tone . . . although I appreciate the "live" feel, it sounds like a mic-recorded amp with the mic a fair bit away.  Or the whole setup is in the back of the room. Any way to bring the guitar more forward in the mix would be a benefit I think. It's a cool jam for sure. And the pyrotechnics at the end were nifty!

 

cheers,

-Tom

Thanks for the listen Tom. As I said in the post, I did it for fun. Let me explain a little more. 

Here I was at work with nothing to do. I had my guitar strapped on with my Surface setup and when I listened to the song I had some ideas that came out as I played. And I thought let me do something with this. 

And here is where the recording came in. I used a guitar I never recorded, Ibanez G10 with EMG's in it, into a Behringer UM2. Into CbB with Amplitube 4 Mesa MK IV. I monitored this on a JVC car stereo we got setup here at work. 

Took the frozen trks home and mixed at home and publish what you hear.  

I made myself a deadline that I wanted to keep because if not, I'd still be working on it. And that's when it starts going down that never ending hole that I can't seem to get out of. I am never really happy with any mix/song I do. I can always tweak some more!! So I never want to turn it loose. 

I will keep your suggestion in mind when I get back to it next week. When I listen to the song  from SC on a mobile phone, I can hardly hear the piano. SC is doing something when streaming to mobile, and I wasn't prepared for that.

sweet guitar, that's cool you can take that track and make it sound so different.

I can really appreciate what a great job you did here because I tried playing along to the backing track myself. Me - not so good. You - fantastic.
