My Music

I've been putting this off for years.....

Aim is to be heavily influenced but not blatantly ripping off the style of Floyd....basically "melodious anthems", introspective (aka self indulgent, self pitying, melancholic whining.)

Most tracks written under the influence of copious amount of alcohol with the assistance of bob marley, or the morning after when I'm at my most creative.

Believe:

Added a floyd-esque needle drop intro, lead break , and vocal line idea (Over processed).
This will culminate into a big guitar solo at end....eventually.

Still fighting with these bloody vocal plugins.:/

Maybe shouldn't post these in such a WIP state, or maybe I'm just feeling exposed because I'm posting.

EDIT:

Alpha = Rough idea's...does this sound cool stage.
Beta= More structured no real engineering
Final = Good enough to produce
Snip = Section of song.


I hate singing, it makes me feel too exposed, prefer to hide behind my guitar, got bless auto-tune :)

anyway it is done......hopefully this will give me incentive to finish them, but is a track ever really finished ?:)

Nice work.

Pros:
1. Awesome mood. Ooozing cool Miami Vice vibes.
2. Great solo work.
3. Got a good voice, real throwback to the 70's sound.

Cons:
1. The first solo is a little loud and 1/4 to 1/16th as long as I'd have liked. Picturing a full Shine On You Crazy Diamond 7 minute intro.
2. Some out of syncing going on around the 1 minute mark.
3. The production needs remastering, it's not crisp.
4. Vocals are overproduced and too muffled. I know why, you're trying to hide, I do it too. Clear them up and keep it raw, you have a good voice.
5. The song ended with a -

Cons:

1. Yes, I though the same, it was just a random riff, binned for something more subtle, my take on crazy diamond is in the Next to the Mountain track.

(Added Next to the Mountain to the first post, all done in one sitting, no engineering other than volumes, simply a rough canvas to work from.)

2. To be expected, but yeah, me lazy, intended to fix but never got round to it, will end up rebuilding the entire track from scratch in a more structured , engineered way.
3. I haven't learned how to master :P
4. Agreed...except the good voice bit :P
5. Not the full track

all valid points, I need to get organized, shits all over the shop, I really am a messy/lazy musician :) ...need to be more disciplined , tho engineering destroys my feel for the music especially when I'm playing with ideas.

These are really bad mixes...I'm going to engineer them better and repost.

I'm remixing, just recorded my voice dry over a couple of chords....it doesn't sound that bad, your right, I was in the habit of hiding it with FX :D

Now I'm engineering as I go, before I was just hitting record, be up to speed in no time. :)
