Okay, okay… I’ve replaced the farkin snare!
Actually, it’s your fault. I’'m so uptight now about snares I doubted myself. I actually started out with a " more pointy/snare " but thought to myself “nah, the guys will immediately poo poo that!” so I changed it. Doh!
Cheers Wim. No, nothing of the original in this at all. Different tempo, probably a different key(?), the arrangement is completely different and the structure is somewhat different too… and well, it’s pretty much been changed in all regards except for the lyrics and the core melody.
Vocal is excellent. You’ve come a long way in this respect. I remember the nervous vocalist a couple of years back. No sign of it here Mix is very good too
Thanks Phil . Yeah…vocals I’m pretty comfortable with these days. I know what I can and can’t do with my voice and have learnt to work the best I can within those limitations. And of course singing live every week for the last 4 years has certainly paid off too -particularly in terms of confidence and being comfortable projecting out into a crowd.
I’ve also tried a few different things with the way I’m mixing it too. A little more care with EQ… I’ve detected a couple harsh spots in my voice when I get into my higher register so to make it easy, in song where theres lower parts and higher parts I now split them across two tracks and deal to my voice in slightly different ways accordingly. Also, on this one I’ve used delays and chorus and less reverb.
