I remixed this song I posted
a few days ago taking into account some of the feedback and I like it a whole lot better now!
I changed a whole bunch of things.
-- retracked the vocal completely. It's still a bit sibillant but that's the mic/pre-amp combo and I realized too late to fix it. It's mostly in tune now although I'm really straining to hit those high Fs and it hurts to listen to.
-- lost the rhodes
-- added a clean Fender Jag playing a tremolo part with the trem set to a triplet feel, which I really llove. It lifts the choruses which takes some weight off the main vocal
-- reduced the velocity on the kick and snare to make it a bit more laid back
-- redid all the mastering completely, so overall it's much less compressed
We played this for the first time in the full band last night and it sounded really nice with the bass player doing an echo on the choruses
Didn't we have a ball (didn't we have a ball)
Didn't we show them all (didn't we show them all)
I tried doing this myself but it sounds really weird in the same voice.
I wrote and discarded a horn part which got too bombastic.
