vocal tracking is hard
i’ve been trying to work on more tunes with vocal tracks, as vocals seem to be pretty much the hardest kind of “instrument” to record. then there’s also the additional fact that while i don’t hate the sound of my own voice, i definitely feel uncomfortable listening to it. this is something i need to get over, and i guess there’s only one way to do it.
I got a lot of help on this matter from the TweakHeadz site. There’s all kinds of good stuff on that site.
anyways, this tune is another one larry hovish and i collaborated on. we kinda were going for an alt-rock kind of feel, which i believe we suceeded in. furthermore, my solo in this tune has a nice crappy-neil-young quality to it. okay, that was not intentional, i was just sick of protools, and i didn’t feel like doing it over again.
