Thanks Bala, again for the comment on tones. David did midi drums and bass, acoustic guitar strumming, vocals, and mixing. I did the electric guitar parts. I know I didn’t get all the bends, but I sure got a lot closer than when we started the project. The notes highest up the fretboard are very hard to bend for me.

Yea I have that problem too especially when the callouses go away! But you did well on most part of the solo. You'll get there with more time :)

Bala, the bass track was MIDI using a free digital instrument plug-in.  We had a YT bass lesson that showed how to play it that included the score.  So I used Reaper Notation Editor to create the bass score.  Then put Waves GTR plug-in on which has some bass amp sims and pre-sets to juice up the tone.  Glad you liked it.

It still needed your effort and it sounded good David! :) It sounded very close to the original.

Thanks Bala.  That is true ... the effort :)  Glad it sounded good. 

Amazing what can be done with modern tech, once you can read the score.  I guess playing it would be better but until that time, it is great to have that option when arranging a cover or original.

Unless we are put on a stage to perform our tracks, everything is fair in the recording process! It’s still us making the sound. And with some fair experience using software to make music (still can’t get the flute on California dreamin to sound right), I know it’s a hard process! :)

Hey guys,
I see that colab projects are becoming a trend of the year ;D That's a very good trend when people from different parts of the world work together to create some music.
Good job Dave and Mari! :) Dave certainly made big progress on playing and mixing ;) Mari has confirmed her status as probably the only gal in the community who plays rock guitar ;) Maybe you should put more gain on amp or use a tube screamer pedal to make more sustain to the solo parts...But that's a matter of taste anyway.
Good job once again and keep it going :)
Cheers,
Roman
Keep on rocking!

Thanks for listening and great feedback, Roman.

I learnt lots when doing the collab with you last year. Happy to be putting the knowledge to work and try to share what I've learned from you and also LB on production and mixing.

Excellent! Everything is nice and clear, great guitars, lovely harmony - excellent lead break (the highlight for me) - that acoustic picking in the background is sweet! Great job guys,really enjoyed it.....I could hear you knocking  ;D

Omar, Gareth, Brian, and b1rdland - thanks for listening, and I’m glad you liked it!

Bala, practice practice and more practice right? And listening, that’s helpful too lol. The solo was certainly fun to learn and play, imperfections and all :)


Mari has confirmed her status as probably the only gal in the community who plays rock guitar ;)

Well thanks for that Roman - I guess I better finish learning Stairway to Heaven now!!

And thanks for listening and for the feedback. I’d never even heard of a tube screamer pedal before joining the forum, and yet I think I probably ‘need’ one now! And to improve my playing skills of course lol. :)
