    Spijt (HRC with a cheat)

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hey there...it's been a while since I posted a song (or posted anything at all ....that's because I'm kinda busy lately, mainly work)

    Anyway, I'm not dead! This is one the songs I'm currently working on.

    Spijt

    http://www.nowhereradio.com/artists/...=2618&alid=462

    Alternate location (if NWR is too slow for your taste)

    http://westwood.keyserver.org/pedullist/Spijt_dry.mp3

    It was an attempt to write a 6/8 R'n'B ballad type of song. Translation of the title is 'regret'. So think of all the stupid things you regret (add the word 'relationship'), and you know what I'm singing about. (I don't have time to translate it)

    I've recorded the vocals with a compressor in my signal chain, so I'm disqualified for the challenge. Yet, I decided to mix it dry anyway. Just for fun. The rest is dry as hell...(true, guitars and bass through a signal processor, but no afterwards applied fx). So every chorus you hear is natural (couple of voices singing the same part at the same time).

    I'm thinking about tightening the harmonies a little. The lead at the end is screwed up too. Will definitely redo that. The guitarsolo is a lame attempt to emulate a blues guitarist. But I'm a bassplayer, and you can hear that

    O, the drums are by Walter (DDRUMS, real cymbals)...and yes I KNOW THEY SOUND THIN! Especially when I can't use any fx to beef 'm up!

    Wow, that's kind of sappy. A bit too sweet for me.
    But as always a wonderful bass tone and a good arrangement.

    Heh, basstone is my bass through a Korg AX1000G guitar processor!

    Thanks for listening.

    (about the sappyness: in my opinion you gotta try every style...one day I'll try something that sounds even sappier to your ear....and full-on metal is still on my list too)

    Awesome man! I like how it seems all like happy and then yet it's DARK no it's not, YES IT IS ITS DARK nope everythings fine

    chord change at 1:13 - yeah!


    I like what's going on in this song and for all dry it sounds great. I hear what you are saying about the lead, what you have sounds tasty but there are some spots where you could just FLOAT over that.

    Hey if you ever feel like shopping out for some lead work, I don't know if you've heard any of mine but I'd be happy to volunteer.
    Keep doing what you're doing - Woodward

    Vox is really good....harmonies are superb...
    the performance is really top notch....
    Personally I like the guit solo...it just needs some volume...


    it's too bad that Aerosmith already did this music though...ya know?

    Take it easy man,
    Joe
