Here are the guitar tracks (pitch corrected)...I also added a basic tab for the main guitars only.

Use,lose,edit or move whatever tracks you want.

-------------------------

I forgot to remove fades on guitar tracks...I would actually like to create and ending for song so im open to ideas on how to do that...I can always re record guitars.

Hey lonely!  Feel free to add drums, but I have them covered unless you really want to.  Didn't post here cause I'm still working on the edit.  Recorded them a while ago and didn't have much time to edit them together.

Here's what I have so far though.

Loon has drums covered however everything thing else is open for auditions/additions.

Also wanted to mention

Guitar auditions are open as well...my guitar and amps are on the cheapy side (struggle with tunage) so if we could get a 12 string gibby electric or acoustic playing that main rhythm this song could sound much better with loons drums.

OK, I laid down a bass track, just off of the guitars, here is a link:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3203339/ATGD-Bass%20tracks.zip

Of course, I now listened to the mix with the drums you posted and it doesn't work, but I thought I'd share it anyway in case there are pieces you may want to keep.

Can you upload the drums, or perhaps the midi file for the drums (assuming those are triggered), and I'll make another pass?

Perhaps loon can post an updated wav file with drums once hes done editing.

------------------

Listening to Bass tracks now.

DI track is empty (nothing on it)

I like some of what you did listening to bass amp track though.

See what Loon thinks..hes mixing.

Most of the song/vereses are in the key of D then goes to A...then its like an F sharp/D thingy and F/D.

Alright.  I finished the edit.  One of my messiest but it sounds fine in the song I think.  Do the drums sound triggered, lonely?

Here's how I fit your bass to the song.

And here's a stereo mix of the drums.  I'll post the stems when the time comes, but this should do for now.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22087900/divid%20drums.wav

Here's a file containing both.  (don't know why I uploaded this. it's only slightly smaller).
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22087900/divide.rar

Did you guys want me to change/finish the vocal, or is it rubbish?  It's cool either way.

Great bass playing by the way.

The verse vocals are good Loon.

--------------------

Industry insider vocal recording tip (I just learned)

remove pop filter
Get close to mic but dont sing directly into mic...sing below it.

Then try and double your original vocal with another one and try and match as best you can.

Its similar to doubling a guitar track...getting close to mic creates a more intimate vocal recording.
