    Satchel Paige

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I kind of recorded this to just get back into the groove of writing and recording again.....moved into a new apartment that's a little noisier, which doesn't really help w/ recording, and i was having computer problems, so this one is a little more minimalist than some....

    Any comments or suggestions welcome.........

    Too much verb on everything man....

    did you record the guit and the vox at the same time?
    harmony vox is way too far back in the mix...the wooo-hooos
    guits and vox needs some seperation in the mix....

    Cool tune...

    Heyyeee powdah ... rhymes with chowdahhhh! New englund !! OY I wish to be free from TEA TAXES AND reeeligious persecution chowdah chowdah lobstah!


    Nice sounding acoustic guits there. I like the mood of the song. I am having trouble making out the lyrics. I think the vox sound a bit muffled I'm not sure if they're buried in the mix or if the highs are missing but i couldn't make out any of the lyrics but i like the melody lines and the delivery. Cool back vox is it? The mood was set very nicely here.

    Ditto. What better time to track than 6am on a Saturday! Maybe it's an east coast thing...

    And Evan, Joe's from New England too, gov'nah!

    Powderfinger....My girlfriend said "25."

    Beautiful singing on this man. The guitars and nice and soft and cuddly too. I think a little bit of lyrical change up would be good. Remember if you get famous you'll have to sing that line one million times.

    Good song, Mr. Finger.

    As for mix comments, all I could say is so far, everything sounds great! I love the verb setting and all the levels and eq sets you have on it.

    My only snit would be on the vocals being a little pitchy in spots and worthy of a re-do to nail that down a bit better. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing.

    Is this to be the final version in terms of adding anything further to it? It could stand very nicely as it is now or, you could add a whack of other stuff to this too and still have it come off as very tasteful. I could see Studioviols doing some strings to this to fill it out bit in my mind. Are you listening SV?

    Great tune!

    I enjoyed it!

    Cheers!

    Thumbs up

    nice and easy on the ears like an acoustic song should be.. I like the reverbs here.. agree there are a few pitchy spots that could be fixed though.. good song and sound.. had a little trouble making out the lyrics, but I'm not sure if I would sacrifice the sound to make them more understandable.. I don't know..

    joro - thanks for the feedback......I know I did go overboard on reverb on this one...I was trying to get a sound that was definitely dripping in verb, but not so much that it makes it muddy....guess I still have to work on that

    Khompewtur - Thanks for listening....I'm thinking what I told Sabbath about the words.......I think they're hard to understand due to the way I'm singing, not how I'm mixing 'em.....that was only my second time to sing the verses and I was reading as I was singing....and unfortunately, it shows......maybe I'll wait a few days, get more familiar with the song (just wrote it), and then retrack and see how that works.............and, yup, they are backing vocs on those parts.....and i'm glad you asked as that's what I was attempting to do with them.....just distant enough to be noticed, but have to question if it is vocals

    Sluice - I know what you're saying about the lyrics......but Satchel Paige really did say "how old would you be if you didn't know your age"......so I feel weird changing it.....tell you what....if I ever get famous, I'll gladly change the lyrics

    Ghost of FM - i'm gald the verb wasn't too overboard.....I definitely should retrack the vocal in a week or so for both clarity and pitch, but as I wrote above, I don't think I could do much beter now because I haven't memorized my own lyrics yet ....I tried adding percussion, but it never sounded good, so I kinda just left it for the time being........

    Sabbath - Thanks for the feedback....I agree on the sound v. clarity option...I'm thinking the main clarity is lost from my actual singing on the verses, as that was litterally the second time I sung the verse...and I was reading off a sheet of paper......maybe I'll retrack in a week or so w/ a little more familiarity......i always seem to record verses right after i write them, which seems to always lead to problems w/ clarity and/or pitch (note to self)

    (didn't read any replies, yet)

    hooked on the first chord

    great opening line

    love the acu guit sound

    how 'bout as an outro, end just like you did, a couple o seconds of silence, then bring the guits back in and fade, nothing too dramatic or long; just a thought

    read the replies

    I thought the mix and 'verb and vox and backing vox, were all dead on I wouldn't change a thing

    maybe a "lyrical change up" would work, that is such a good line
    "how old would you be..."

    (how can so many people hear so many different things)
