Let's Go Get Stoned

July 9, 2006 12:45 PM

A little taste of a cover of Let's Go Get Stoned, although this version sounds a lot more like a live recording of Adrian Duke I have. It takes much longer to record a song when you're on your own. I start these kinds of projects now and then, using GarageBand and an M-Audio MIDI keyboard to record songs without using any of the built-in loops, and rarely finish them because it takes too long. (I did loop a simple drum track when I first started working on this, but after I got the bass and keys down, I went back and rerecorded the drum track live to the rest of the instruments.) The guitar wankery was the most recent addition... not a real guitar, but one of the MIDI instruments in GarageBand. Just goofing around, really. Nothing else to do today...

That's a pretty sweet version, emelenjr.

The guitar is a lot more convincing that I would have imagined.

I can still hear the piano-y transitions between notes in my playing, but that's hard to avoid since I played the guitar part on a piano keyboard. I play a little real guitar too, but I've never taken lessons so my fingers can't play what I hear in my head. The guitar sample is called Festival Lead, from the Rhythm Section expansion pack Apple released a while ago. Come to think of it, the bass (Session Bass) and drums (Warehouse Drums) are from that set, too.
