I'm currently working on a song i wrote where the main rythm comes from the power chord guitars.
When I "draft" recorded it I had guitars and drums without the bass line. I could feel the result I wanted at that stage.
Then I recorded the bass and finished up the song. Headed over to the mixing process.
As usualy I started cleaning some of the muddy frequencies on the guitar but this I realized removed the feeling of these "pumping" guitars.
I didn't manage to get this right bringing and blending in the bass and make them work together with the kick drum.
In the example below, I tried side-chaining a slightly "moved ahead" track of the kick drum to trigger bass and guitar compression with a fast attack and release setting.
Hoping to emphasize the rythm... getting more pumping.
Hope I could express the problem I have in an understandable way.
Here"s the link to the song. Any additional feedback on the mix is welcome as well. Link to the song
