Smile My guitar track, IanSi. - Gravity

Hey, guys! So today I revisited my old guitar track, and thought I'd show it to you! It's just a bit weird and experimental. Lots of guitars. Would love to read any comments, since I've done every inch of work on it myself. Cheers!

Slightly remixed it to sound a little "warmer", and added another artwork to YouTube.

Re: My guitar track, IanSi. - Gravity

Thank you for listening! I guess I did my best on it (at a time).
Honestly, the idea of this is to go public with anything I got, to build up confidence and just keep going. The only way of improvement I could think of, now.

Great use of rhythm to punctuate the track, loving the chord progression too... What drum sample did you use?

Re: My guitar track, IanSi. - Gravity

Thanks! I used Toontrack's Superior Drummer for the main "acoustic drums", but in this case, for the 2nd part I also mixed-in synth drums and percussion samples (from vintage drum machine Yamaha RY-30) into room and overheads of original drums to create some other feel.
The snare drum in 1st and 3rd parts has gated reverb on it (kind of an old technique, but I like this sound). And that reverb is the impulse from the old verb-machine AMS RMX16 as well, which is very popular since 80s, I think.

I guess for the next projects I will really push the saturation (for loud, rockin' tracks) and possibly, high freq band for a more intense sound. Went really mild with this one, if compared to some possible reference tracks.

P.S. I'm also kind of a mellow, noodling guy most of the time, not "on-point", and after hearing some of your tracks, Craig, now I'm really craving to try composing and recording some very accurate and heavy stuff.
Btw, for anyone wondering, mixing was done in Pro Tools 10, all instrument groups went through "console emulation" of an EMI console unit, as for guitar sound emulation it's basically Boss DS-1 into Marshall JTM 45 with native cabs, mic'd with Shure SM57. Reverbs are from the aforementioned impulses of AMS RMX16... Delay and modulations are native Avid plugins for PT10.
All tracks and samples are tweaked with a Pro Tools EQ and the emulation of 1176 compressor. Just a SSL compressor, Kramer Tape and Limiter-1 on the master.
