    For fun and remembering the good ole 80s

    So I was listening to my favorite europop stuff and thought it would be nice to do a rock version of it. Around that time I had also heard some rock band do a cover of Britney Spears' Hit Me One More Time. It was in Freaky Friday, the movie.

    Anyhoo, I set out trying to figure out the "chords" to the song. Never figured it out. Wasn't good enough guitarist yet.

    Recently, I tried again and was able to figure out what I think is the correct chords progression.

    Anyhoo, it's a cover and melody is as best as I could emulate with the guitar at my current skill level. It's not complete and I doubt that I'll be able to do the solo so I might never finish it. Or I might add a different solo that I am able to play.

    Cool bigbubba - I like the groove you got going on the drums. The rhythm guitar on the right has a great tone to it. I heard a nice rhythm part on the left side at about :50/:54/2:15 that had a good effect - could use more of that for dynamics (although it is nicely placed now). Cool echo on the guitar for leads/rhythm....Great lead tone and playing...

    Ido, thanks very much for listening and commenting. The only FX on most things is the EQ. Other than that the guitars have a little reverb and the backup vocals emulating guitar has a simple delay. The rest of the FX are from the DigiTech presets.

    Don't know if you heard the original version or not, but those were the days when it didn't cross our thoughts at all that it all sounded somewhat full of too much fluff.

    Nice sounds man....I think teh rhythm guitars could be brought up slightly in the mix, and then you might do the same with the bass. I like the sounds you got.

    Cool tune man. Gonna watch the video you linked now....

    Hey Dogman, thanks for listening and commenting.

    You know I was thinking that the rhythm was too loud so I turned it down and took the bass down a couple of dbs. Anyhoo, so did you see the original video? What'dya think?

    Oh,wait, you mean the SONG?? Oh, Well, my first instinct was that the rhythm might be better down a half dB or so, but you caught that yourself..

    I do love the tone on the rhythm guitars; I can never get anything crunchy to sound authentic... What are you using for drums?

    I wanted to comment last night but it was locked.
    Now I can't remember what I was going to say. I'll listen again & get back to you.

    Llarion, dude you're back. Nice to see you again.

    Thanks for listening and commenting.

    About the rhythm, I was thinking about lowering it but Dogman was thinking about raising it. But he's more heavy metal that I am so I guess he's thinking more of his kind of music.

    For drums I'm using FLStudio4 and some basic out-of-the-box sounds that came with it.

    The guitar crunch is DigiTech RP200 that I recently purchased.

    Thanks for dropping by Rayc.



    I was rather drunk last night and thought it fun to close the thread for some reason. I realized this morning that doing so might prevent people from commenting. Duh.... See my use of logic?
