Twist And Shout

Post by Craig » Fri Oct 10, 2014 3:31 pm

Here you go, Don. I only had two hours this afternoon so the drums aren't really done and the mixing is very rough (there are a few parts that need to be re-recorded). However, givin the amount of time I had to learn, record and mix it, I don't think it's too bad...

Here you go:

I love it, Craig!!

Your bass is thunderin! I dig the vocals. If you had time, I've love to hear more layering of your vocs on the harmonies. The drums sound fine to me, too.

Before your final take, scream at the top of your lungs for about an hour. Once you've got your vocal cords all gravely, then do the lead voc one more time!!

In all seriousness, it sounds awesome. I'd say two hours well spent!!

I actually did the first take very gravelly. Then, I went back and redid it clean. I was torn between emulating John's voice and doing my own....

Post both???

Craig, how many layers of vocals can you do with your recording rig?

I haven't found the ceiling yet. I've done 24 tracks without a hitch. Could probably do more if I needed to.

Personally, I always love your vocals. I'd love to hear an "over the top" layering on the backing vocals, just for fun!!

Have you ever done "Moondance"?? :wave:

I'd love to do a song that is heavy on the harmonies. I'll give it some thought.

Thanks again, Eric. There are a lot of things I'd change if I were to do it again, but every time I record, it's a learning experience.

Ever do "Paperback Writer"? The intro has layered harmonies, and the background vocs could be layered as well, I'd think.

I haven't. I'm looking at several possible songs. I will add it to the list.
