Monthly Recording Challenge 66 - "If I could turn back time"

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Since @UncleHammy hasn't logged in in a while we decided in February's thread to keep the tradition going. Let's hope he is well and that he can pick it up when he comes back.

 

This month's theme is courtesy of @Nutty 1

Theme:  If I could turn back time

Description:   "If I could turn back time" anything that is to do with the past or time.

Deadline: 11:59 PM PST  March 31, 2019

 

1- @Texaspackerfan - She ain't in it

 

2- @Nutty 1 - I think it's time

 

 

------------------< RULES >-------------------------
SUBMITTING: To complete the challenge, record an eligible song and reply to this thread with your your direct-linked or embedded track (Soundcloud's great) before the end of the month.

GUITAR REQUIREMENT: You must play at least one real guitar track heard in the mix.

GEAR: All content must be recorded with your home studio equipment. You may use BIAB or loops as long as you play the majority of the song with your real guitar. This is a guitar playing challenge not a sampling/recording challenge so keep that in mind.

TIME: A recording made at any time before the entry deadline counts, but do not enter a recording in more than one challenge.

ONE ENTRY per person or collaboration. But, I doubt anybody will complain if you want to share another on-theme track too.

NEXT THEME: The person to choose next month's theme will be chosen randomly from those who complete this challenge. 
-----------------------------------------------------

Have fun, try something new, and give us something to listen to!

Wow, that is superb Danny!👏🏼 I beg to differ on the point that you say you are not a singer. I think your vocals are great and you even could turn the volume up on them in your mix. Brilliant!

That 's really well done @Texaspackerfan Danny! Could you tell us a bit about your recording process? Did you use a drum machine or plugin on a DAW? Did you mic an amp for the guitar parts or play direct into a DAW (which one?) and what plug in in. Thanks and congrats. Neil

Thank you @Eracer_Team-DougH@NeilES335

Neil, for my recordings I have a 14 channel mixer. It is made by soundcraft and is able to record directly to my software. The software or DAW I use is Studio one 3.5 artist. As far as recording all the parts, I mic up real drums most of the times, however on some cases i use a drum pad if the drum parts are not that complicated. The pad is just too slow for me.

How i record the drums, I make a recording of the original song in my DAW and play along with the song.  Then i record the bass and that is plugged in to my amp and i use the direct outs on the line 6 amp. then it goes to my mixer which i can EQ it before it is sent to the DAW which that then is also EQ. I don't add any plugins for the bass parts. I try to keep it simple. 

Acoustic guitar, I mic up and use the direct outs on the amp and mix them later. I add Reverb,eq,compression,etc...

Electric guitar, I used 71 fender tele, its got a great sound for the old school country songs. the amp is a Line 6 and i use the built in affects.  That is mic'd in front of the speaker and i also use the direct outs and mix the two later. I don't use plugins that much. I try to keep the sound pretty raw. I'll add different eq's and compression that came with my DAW. 

That's it basically, hope it helps.

Wow, what a nice recording and exceptional play in every regards! I am really enjoying your contributions and would echo Nutty's thoughts about the vocals. Nothing to be self conscious about-sounds great, man.

That sounds great, Danny and I wished I could sing like you!

How did you play the lap steel guitar parts? 

Wim.

Thank you, @Wim VD1 My neighbor had a 71 tele he let me use, beautiful guitar i might add but is was done by bending and plucking strings at he same time with volume swells. I've been working on this technique for awhile. it is slowly coming around.

Well done Danny!

Good effort Nutty! I recommend you stop looking at your fretting hand so much while playing. You are playing the chords fine so believe in yourself.
