Damn dude, that's just great. I don't know the original tune yet so the voc seems to fit perfectly to me. Fantastic, authentic stuff.
3 thumbs up for creativity! I'm sure that took some work!
Thanks Jason! I hope you have a great holiday season!
I like this a lot, Jake!
This is my first entry as an Academy member with PLAP. I am proud to be here and I am looking forward to learning from you all. I didn't have access to a guitar here at home so this is all keyboard samples and patches, mostly off of Studio One.
Gary, that is a really cool mix -- very different than what I heard in my head in the original track (I'm a "string band" kind of musician). Thanks very much for sharing it!
I really like the way your drums shift the feel of the song into a "one" feel (vs. the original 6/8 "two" feel). The cello / viola sounds in the bridge are excellent as well.
This is a cool take on the song. One tweak: I would lay out on one or two of the add-ons in the intro (chimes, birdsong, reverse cymbal).
The guitar solo in the interlude is cool, but I would go for a "darker" tone there.
That was an excellent mix. I would ditch the "telephonic" echo / delay at 2:39 ff: it doesn't add to the song at all.
- The B3 is superb throughout.
- The horn stabs on the 4 in the second verse are inspired.
- The horns seem a little busy in the "transition" points: they trick my ear into expecting a different resolution than the one which follows, in a not-very-pleasing way.
I really enjoyed this mix overall.
I like the mix overall, very much. The distortion on the "wide" guitars seems slightly over the top: my ears wanted to hear a warmer tone from them.
That is an excellent re-imagining of the song: stretching it that far yields some cracks, but one cannot but honor the vision / effort.
