100 bpm

I recorded a few guitar tracks then PM'd Loon to lay down a drum track...couple hours later and here we are.

Love the sound of the drum recording...excellent...makes my guitar tracks sound small...I may have to double up some tracks.

I did a rough quick mix...i like the big snare sound I was able to mix in there...not bad.

mp3 preview...dont record to mp3 because of timing issues...thanks

If you do redo the guitar, would it be possible to record the DI's as well? They're always more fun to work with.

Here's a solo'd drum track if anyone wants to record to it.

Maybe some nasty bas from mua... I'll need some sort of chord chart,
snake oil lamp to guide me though... as I am always short on time for fun things.

Not sure I can record DI at the same time I record amp...I have a modest recording setup...basically a guitar,amp,mic,preamp and interface.

I would have to record twice to make seperate DI stems...I could probably do it...just a bit more work.

Im uploading the few tracks I have now even though I will redo...I get lots of track bleed on my tracks and you can hear click track on them...would rather hear new drum track if I have to live with track bleed.

Here is loons link to drum stems.

I decided to record some bass for this about a half hour ago however it isnt great or anything so if you want to lay down a different track that would good.

When I get a chance I will tab guitar parts out...I usually tab instead of using chord charts because I usually use parts of chords and not full chords most times and theres usually riffs in there somewhere as well.

Haha, love the Maiden Influenced Leads

I'd like to throw down some tracks/write some lyrics for this but I'm scrounging for time these days, and most of my mixing/writing hours are reserved for putting together my bands album (will post a mix off or two from that tracking session once we get the vocals done) - If someone comes up with lyrics and wants me to take a stab at singing it though I'll lay down some quick and/or dirty vocal tracks ;)

I did part of a vocal melody Idea.

Im not a singer...Lately Ive been trying some backup vocals just in an attempt to enhance songs a bit.

I have a few lyrics written but not much.

I definately want a better singer on this thing than me...I may be able to do some backups...maybe.

JoshERTW I will see if I can write more lyrics...here is what i have so far

How I know
You hate the night
Traffics slow
Tonight
Radio on
You Hear The News
Another ones down
Maybe two

I wonder if there are any keyboard players on this site...I want to fill in back of song with keys.

I did a really bad keyboard pad example using my computer keyboard...to much latency to get anything good though.

I'm workin' on some lyrics right now.  Not much of a singer though.  I'll let you know when I'm finished.
