Stress (redo)

Description
A redo of my last post. I replayed the guitar and tried to use a different technique my friend showed for the "chorus" part. I did some editing on the bass and drums, and synth. I tried making the ending a little stronger as well.

Anyone wants to mess with the song/file, just send me a note. This was recorded in Garageband '11.

All the best to you in 2011!

Thanks!
Redoing the guitar was frustrating at times using the technique my friend showed me. (very good learning experience, though!) I still have much to learn, too.

All the best to you and your family in 2011!

First 2011 Listen...
...and it's a great one. Love the tone, the groove, and especially how you mix in the synths. I enjoyed this very much, thanks for posting.

the guitar work sounds excellent Mike.

I
just don't want to over-do it, lol! I'm still not sure about the two drum breaks- one in the 1st chorus, then in the repeat near the end. I thought it would do for now and I'll change it if needed for VOX (if that ever happens)

Thanks for listening, Vic & Happy New Year to you!

You have such a great ear when it comes to blending the synths and gits. Awesome sounding guitars btw.

Thanks John!
I've really enjoyed the short break from all of the chaos at work and be able to mess around with the guitar. I am really happy with the sound I'm getting/recording, I just need to play a little better, lol!

Thanks for taking the time to check this out. I wish you and your family all the best in 2011!

Yea ha
Love the way the bass floats through out this tune and the combination of the keys. The guitars have a sweet varied tone. Are you planning on having a vocal?

mike_d said 2278 days ago (January 2nd, 2011)
Thanks!
I tried to take some of the "techno" out of the original bass tracks (midi) and I was hoping it doesn't sound too busy now.

I don't do vocals or write lyrics, but am certainly open to the idea :)

Thanks for listening & commenting!

re: mix
Thanks for the feedback! I've learned quite a lot about mixing/mastering over the past few months and I'm getting mixes I actually like now :P I still have a lot to learn, too.

I appreciate the listen/comment- Thanks!

Mess with it???
man, I'm not going to mess with a guy who writes killer tunes like this - even the synths are nasty. Dunno how you mastered this, but it nearly blew my speakers!!! Great track Mike.

mike_d said 2277 days ago (January 3rd, 2011)
Glad
to see you around here again, Steve! I always enjoy your tracks and "This Wasted Beauty" was awesome!

I did this track all in Garageband this time. Usually I'll do the mixing in Logic, but I didn't want to spend the time.

I appreciate the generous comment- and I hope I didn't wreck those speakers ;P

Thanks!
I don't know if this tune will ever go anywhere, but it sure was fun to put together. I'm still learning guitar and this gave me some new challenges that were kind of frustrating at times, but all good none the less.

I really do appreciate the feedback- Thanks again!

This is dynamite.
If what this sounds like is the wildly charged kind of stress you have to deal with, then I'm glad you have a way to release it. At least, you don't smash your guitars at the end...so you can make some new songs. Thanks.

Haha!
Well, it's true I don't wreck any gear (not on purpose anyway). However, I do tend to peel the shells off of shrimp now and again, lol!

I'll raise my glass and toast to a less stressful 2011 for all of us :D
Thanks for the wonderful comment Char!

Thanks John,
I believe it was 107 bpm. I resurrected another old techno tune recently and started recording guitar riffs, I just haven't had time to really sit down and work on it. Maybe by March I'll have time, haha!

Thanks again for the comment/listen!

Killer riffage Mike! And those synths rule... Hell, the whole thing rules!

I sure wish you had more time to devote to music making... There's just not enough of your stuff on this site.

Be well my friend!
