    working through adversity

    Half the fun (for me anyway) of home recording is the challenges I face working with sub-standard equipment. I have to work with whatever I have. My latest project takes that to a whole 'nother level.

    I recently moved from California, where I had played in bands as a bassist for many years, to a very small community in Wisconsin. The first two people I met said they had some old instruments they used to play around on.

    They had never even played a song from beggining to end, or ever played with any other human beings!

    The timing still needs alot of work, but it's improving. I'm pretty proud of this bass/drum team for how quickly they've advanced in just a couple months. (I do all guitar and vox).

    Drums were recorded by having him play to a ghettoblaster CD player with headphones, recorded through a single PZM mic into Calkwalk Home Studio. (it's all I had to work with)

    Everything else went direct.

    Please reply with comments, very curious what you think!

    Thumbs up

    Sounds pretty good considering you guys aren't totally cohesive yet, and you're working with inferior equipment. Vocals obviously need help so that I can hear what you're saying, but the overall jist that I'm getting form this sounds great. Not really a genre of music I listen to often, but I would listen to this if it came on the radio for sure.

    I like the chorus too! Good stuff. Keep us updated. I think it would be worth it to invest in some better equipment at this point.
    Ok. Alright.
