Every time I start a new project I have big plans; videos, recording the bass line as well (not always a fan of the bass stems)… but then I start working on the project, and once I have the guitar parts I just want to post it and move on to the next thing. I’ll try to capture something new on video as well soon
Kasper comes along and crushes it. How many times is that now? Answer, always. You are the man. We are just a bunch of dopey people banging on hunks of wood with strings attached. You sir are the real deal. Shine on bright star!
even I know that feeling of getting something to a done point and wanting to move right along. Will appreciate a video, always find them educational and inspirational, well in my case more awe-inspiring.
Perhaps just the lead of this song re-played over the already mixed down backing would be relatively quick and easy to produce?
Regardless, appreciate you sticking around to share, both music and answers to those ready and wanting to dig a little deeper.
It was a great job Kasper, and very close to the original! I liked your idea of doing a cover with the karaoke vocal version, it makes it very interesting, and together with your guitars and the rest of the instruments, it’s amazing. Great sound of all guitars, especially liked the arpeggio with overdrive, very much.
Yeah, I’ve recently become quite fond of using backing material from Karaoke-version, instead of only backing tracks from LickLibrary. For one thing I can then get real stems, not just a backing track mix, and also they sometimes have pretty decent vocals. When I did my previous cover “Maybe I’m a Leo” I couldn’t decide whether or not to use the vocals. On the one hand vocals (obviously) makes any song more interesting, but on the other hand my SoundCloud channel had this “thing” going on with instrumental covers…
I think from now on I might sometimes use them, and sometimes not…
Thanks! Well, the lead tone for this one was simple enough to dial. I have a 50W Marshall Plexi tube head (the 1987x model) that I have modded with an additional preamp tube. Tone was guitar directly into that, and then ALL dials turned all the way up to 10… and into a 4x12 cab with Greenback speakers (IRs)
In the DAW I applied a tiny touch of chorus, a healthy amount of bright Hall reverb and some delay. That was it…
Guitar was my MusicMan Reflex (Les Paul style instrument). For the melody lines (like the intro) I used middle position (both humbuckers) and for the solo I used just the bridge.
