Odoriferous Valley - I mean this as constructive criticism because the track is otherwise pretty good: Get vocal lessons. Your voice has a decent quality to it, but you need to work on singing in key. You're probably aware of this... but if not, work on your ear training too!
glennny wrote:MC Who Izzy- Nice slow building intro. I think the vocals should come in much sooner than 30 seconds if it’s only going to be a 2 minute composition. The vocals are strangely super quiet. When I listen hard, I think the flow is pretty good. There must be a story behind this mix. Sounds like a promising demo.
I agree... Most of the time I record the guitar with a mic, because it does sound much better. I didn't have the time to properly record all the tracks, and kinda schlubed it a bit just plugging in to the box. that is a real bass (a 10 yr old piece of junk "lotus" with a neck that has somehow warped backwards), but again plugged straight into the box... I don't know what it was that gave it the tuba sound, but it makes me wish it was a tuba. The vocals are a little weird, because usually I belt it out, and this time my roommate was studying during my recording time, so I had to restrain a little.bgm wrote:Bad Boys at Bat Mitzvahs
I think my favourite thing is the bass track. I'm always a sucker for a great bass track. And it sounds almost like it's halfway between a tuba and a fretless bass...is it a keyboard?
Again I have to mention my prejudice against acoustics recorded solely with pickups. So much more effective to just mic them.
I like your vocals on this one! Although at the beginning it sounds like you have a slight English accent. Are you Madonna?
the solo sucks... I was hoping to have time to send it off and have a real lead guitarist throw something down. I didn't, so we are stuck with me trying desperately to catch up. The fade out was pure laziness, I suppose it worked better than a hard stop.glennny wrote:Bad Boys @ Barmitzvahs- You forgot the “Tell me about it Stud” at the beginning. Okay maybe it’s just the bass line that sounds like “You’re the one that I want”. The country shuffle drums are pretty loose. The tightness of the drums exactly dictates how tight the rest of the band sounds. I like the bass playing a lot. I like the acoustic guitar playing too. It’s not the best tone for that acoustic, but it sounds alright. The vocals are cool. I like your voice. There’s a Morrissey quality to the vocal melody approach. The song is so bouncy and upbeat, then that solo drags like crazy. I keep wanting to yell at the lead guitarist to keep up! The fade out on the solo is cool, seems to becoming more fashionable.

The leads, both clean and othewise, are on my trusty old strat. It's the guitar I've had the longest, a '71 I bought in '83 off of a hippy turned accountant. It's one of the rhythm guitars as well, along with a mutt strat made up of a neck from a supposed Kramer type strat and a Hondo strat body. Geez! Stratoland! The old one only has a three way toggle vs. five way on the mutt. Talk to KA about vintage strats, though. Thanks for the kind comments!BGM wrote:Is that a Strat? An SG?
