Yes, beautifully played, and an airy sound!
What's That You Say?
Any comments +/- are most welcome.
I hope you like it.
some really great stuff here
great work Uli. Mark & Phil
okay here is my effort
I have solved the problem of mixing it to both channels
Nicely done Phil. I like the acoustic on this ( I might be wrong here)and nicely played .Ya mon!
Really nice effort Paul .The rotary effect gives it a more a calypso style to this track , which is nice.I can't figure out that's a bass or guitar on the bass beat but it works for this track.Nicely done!
Phil, nice work again. I guess the rhythm guitar is an electric one, but like Mike I am not sure what wthe solo guitar is; might be a processed acoustic; anyhow, both sound clean and precise. Sounds like You composed the melody line. A sophisticated treatment of the task again.
Paul, I like that. The sub bass melody and the sub melody with that non-synchronized delay have a nice synth-like touch. The melody was well thought out and played; the effect you used gave it a oil-barrel kind of sound. Did you intentionally distort the sub bass melody and the sub melody a little or was it an accident?
Thanks guys. It looks like I tricked you both. The lead guitar is my partscaster in the middle position with the out of phase switch engaged. I then put it into the BR600 set to emulate a Roland JC120.
The skank guitar is the same guitar back in phase this time into the BR600 with a different preset, which I tweaked so the delay/echo would be in time. That's the guitar panned to the left.
In the middle I played mandolin straight into the BR600 with a slight auto pan.
The scratchy guiro-like percussion panned far right is a wooden picture frame played with a pick.
Ullrich - Very nice. The lead line was quite good, that Cabronita sure sounds nice.
Mark - A nice dream-like melody on this one Mark. Well played. I liked the 2nd guitar playing the repetition also.
Paul - I really liked this. Definitely has a calypso feel to it. Well done.
thanks all for the kind words,
all done on a tele ( SD 59 PAF in the neck , SD Broadcater in the bridge) run through a BOSS ME 70
ok the bass riff is neck pickup, no tone, with octave , run through a tweed simulation.
the sub melody, middle position, delay, compressor tone 3/4 combo simulation
the "lead" rotary , bridge pickup, tone full, clean simulation
the overdrive/distort , was an error, but I just did each track in one take, was sort of happy with each and mixed it down
thanks all again
My not so reggae tune. St. Blues through my Champ X2 modeling a Twin Reverb with Spring Reverb and a Phaser. Did some palm muting to get a baser sound on parts. Playing my J-200 acoustic in the background, probably still too much back. Should have chopped the track down some.
Comments welcome as always. John
Phil - Really liked what you did. Did you also use a Phaser on this track?
Ulrich - Very nice clean tone; which I liked a lot. Sweet sounding Cabronita.
Mark - Very pretty sailing must have put you in a good mood for this. Enjoyed the effects you used.
Paul - The base was a nice touch on this. Another good use of effects.
I enjoyed them all very much.
I have no internet here now. The modem is dead.
I'll listen when I get the new one up and running.
John ,you have a very nice sound on this track.I like your playing and the effects that you used . I could make out J-200 in some parts , you're right ,it's a little buried in the mix but other than that nice work!
John, I didn´t hear your acoustic, but I listened at a low level. Other than that, it seems that all of the participants went a similar way with that track (which is very unusual): playing mostly clean in a relaxed way, using the minor scale. As Mike said, nice playing and sound!
I can't keep a Reggae rhythm going to save my life. Its in my head but it isn't in my right hand for sure. I can hold it for a little bit and then I just get off the time. I should work on it because I really like it a lot. Listened to a lot of Marley and Tosh on vinyl. I love the mix of backing tracks because it does push us into directions we might not normally take. Perhaps just not with this one
John I think you played very nicely on this track. Maybe not quite reggae as you say, but melodically I thought it was pretty good. Well done.
I think I missed the whole point of this assignment for the last track to be a reggae style .Reggae is not in me .
Mike - Ah, a kindred spirit. I liked the tone and effects on this. Not Reggae, more like Dwayne Eddy and the Ventures go to Jamaica but I still liked it a lot.
Ha! You sum it up John.
