This is the current version of the first tune I ever had the guts to post in Made with Cubase. I’m going for kind of a live half drunk fully sloppy bar band kind of vibe . My experience with recording/processing vocals is pretty much non-existent so I’m looking for some feedback in that area particularly. Lay it on me. I can take a fair amount of abuse . As always, general comments on the mix would also be appreciated.
Thanks, Bob! I’m glad you like it. I wasn’t familiar with David Wilcox but I just checked out a few videos on YouTube. The dude rocks, man (I’m assuming you’re referring to the Canadian one). That’s definitely the kind of style I’m going for.
As far as the slide guitar levels go - that’s probably the thing I was having the hardest time getting to sit how I wanted in the mix. I might have to go back and do a little more tweaking on that.
yup, thats the one, I hear alot of similarities in your style. back in the late 80’s when I was in the construction union, wilcox was kind of part of the movement up here. he did alot of songs about the workerin man and construction sites, like " layin pipe" and stuff. theres a cd I picked up a while ago called an hour with david wilcox, it still gets alot of plays up at the summer cottage…with beer in hand.
Hey Scott. I’m not sure that you succeeded in capturing the ‘half drunk, fully sloppy bar band"
thing. First thing is - the applause track is far too polite. You need more hootin’, hollerin’ and cussin’ goin’ on!
Also, I don’t think it’s all that sloppy. Sounds pretty good to me. It does have a live feel. If anything, the vocal
is a little dry for a live recording - you may want to add a bit of delay or something.
Good performances, though. Nice work.
