  • New Song "Tear Me Down"

    This one is short, so it shouldn't be too painful for too long. Unlike the last song I did where I tried dual-micing everything, I went took a more barebones approach on this one and used a single SM57 for guitars and vocals, bass was DI'd, and rhythm guitars during the solo were the only part I used a LD condenser so that it'd sound completely different from the lead guitar (with the idea being to not compete for the same frequencies). Guitar had a Custom in it (thanks Johnny the Kid) into a treble booster>Bassman Normal channel>open 2x12 double tracked panned L/R. I also tried to sing in a higher (for me) register for this one, just to experiment. It was really exhausting trying to double track it with minimal vocal comping. I also tried to avoid comping guitar/bass parts and vocal parts, because I was too lazy to bounce anything to bus tracks.

    Let me know what you think: Anything that you like, anything you think sucked donkey balls, tips, feedback, etc. Thanks!

    Guitar tones were very thin with no meat and chunk in the tones. Other than that it's a cool piece
