Talking First actual recording!!

I uploaded a youtube clip of this song, but here is the recorded version. I used GuitarRig 4 for ll the distortions and effects. The backing track is the same I found on the net. Comments welcome, as long as they are positive!!

Re: First actual recording!!

whole thing is fairly low in volume but sounds really nice. the lead kinda already sits in the mix but might be a bit loud in relation to the backing track. if i was about to mix it i would add a bit of delay/verb and widen it la Haas technique to give it more life... :]
good playing - not the most technical stuff i`ve heard but who cares about technique when it sounds like music?

Thanks guys. I really didn't do any mixing at all, but I think I may try to this week.

Re: First actual recording!!

Very Nice Danny!!!!

I'm shocked that this is your first recording. The quality is amazing for a first time. Usually a first attempt sounds similar to an old cassette recording (remember those days....LOL).

I really like the song too, great feel and tempo!!

I'm trying to be constructive and helpful.

You did a good job, it sounds nice.
But, it needs something, the guitar playing I mean.
Your playing is a little too straight.
I don't feel it, it's plain.

It's not easy to write and record music, you're on your way.

I think that when he gets more comfortable with recording, his notes will "flow" a little more "freely". I get what your saying, and agree. I'm looking forward to Danny going forward with this and other songs in the future.

Talking Re: First actual recording!!

I see what you mean as well Sebastian and I agree. Over all though, I am happy with this one the way it is, maybe I will go back in a few years(once I am better) and rewrite some parts. For now though, I have another I am working on and my band just bought a Presonus FireStudio so we can record and "Album" Hehe. I'll let you guys have a sneak when i have something. Thanks!!

Re: First actual recording!!

I dig it, but I agree that the playing is too straightforward. Don't be afraid of vibrato!
