Re: Forum players under 21
Cool! Thanks for this great idea I'll get it started I guess!
Really nice tasteful playing there... nice to see some soulful blues soloing. Notice your pups buzz a lot, hate it when mine do that!
Here's a song which I recorded a few weeks ago with my mate. Story is, I gave myself a stupid task for college. We have a project going on where you pick an objective, then have a deadline to achieve it. I gave myself the task of writing, recording and mixing an original song. Now the latter two parts are easy, seeing as I've been doing both for a couple of years. However writing songs is a bit more difficult. Needless to say I came up with a stupidly difficult song to play, went to record it and found out that it was near impossible for me.
I went home and realised I had just over a month until my project was due in. So I spent the next 5 hours on my guitar coming up with riffs, until I got something which I really liked. Quickly came up with some admittedly bad lyrics, then recorded a basic acoustic version on to my computer so I could remember it tomorrow.
Tomorrow came and I rang up my mate who has a makeshift recording studio. His name's Ash, and is one of the best drummers I have ever seen, insane. Says to him I got a new song which needs recording, you free today? He says yes so off I go to his house and record. Within minutes he's picked it up and we get recording. Drums were done in one take. Then we recorded everything else, guitar, bass and vocals in under 3 hours. All pretty much one or two takes apart from the vocals. Then we spent the next hour trying to mix it.
This is the fruit of our labour, not really mixed yet and the rhythm guitar needs re-doing, but I am extremely pleased with how it's turned out. Please give it a listen if you have a few spare minutes, I'd very much appreciate it.
I played everything apart from the drums and wrote it myself.
