It took way longer than we expected, but I finally "finished" mixing "Peace, Love, and Understanding", an online collaboration by my old '80s college bar band, with additional help from some online friends. I started this project mostly as a way to get myself some quick-and-dirty program material with which to practice recording and mixing. I learned a lot along the way, but the most important lesson was, "Idle hands are the Devil's playground". There were some delays in getting the lead vocal recorded (but that's a story for another day). While I was waiting, I couldn't leave well enough alone and found myself adding stuff; a jangly guitar here, a surfy 6th-string line there, and the mob vocal chorus on the ending. The project ended up being 36 tracks, a laughably overblown production of what should be a simple pop song. But I had fun, gained some needed experience in DAW production, and am happy with the result despite its excesses. So I ask you, what's so funny?
