Famous Last WordsBrian:
Take 1: This take should work fine. So, nitpicking! overdub backing vox at beginning? Brian's guitar hiccups at 1:28. overdub Bryn's guitar? Bryn sings "but i get along here" instead of "cause I get along here" at 3:53. Otherwise his vocals are just fine. Stop repeat & fade ending at/around 6:30.
Take 1: Bryn: "what? Oh." Great round the kit fill at 3:50. I know Brian wants to overdub guitar, but this is a really good take otherwise. Bryn's vocals are perfect. Take 2: Brian's guitar fails to come in at its usual :025. Maybe an overdub can fix that, or even cut & paste. Ending isn't as good as the first time, but this is a good take overall too. I can't decide.
Take 1: Drums come in a little sluggish. Brian and Keir both mess up notes at 1:58. Passable take though. Replace beginning drums w/2nd take beginning? Take 2: Drums in much better/tighter on this take. Brian hits a wrong note at 1:19. Drums are underplayed from 1:56 to 2:28. Maybe use the ones from 1st take.
Distorchestra:There will be a new Audio Archive next weekend too, focusing on the initial sessions for our 2002 My Band Rocks E.P.
Bass and drums don’t come in together
My guitar sounds cool at 1:50
Bryn’s slide/ebow stuff sounds really cool
Riff on my guitar sounds muddy
I hit a couple wrong notes during both takes (can probably be edited)
Bryn’s guitar has very little sustain on take 1
Drums sound better on take 2 (except 2nd verse maybe?)
My picking pattern is off on take 2
“Sounds cool backwards” -- this is what I wrote down last night… if any of you have any idea what I meant, I’d love to know
Double-tracking Bryn’s guitar might sound cool
