Grape Jam Sandwich

By Anon_Buster on October 4, 2020 6:05 pm

Last week's drum's had a nice feel to them, so I wanted to continue in the groove of drumming. Having less instruments and more organic sounds also made mixing much easier. Please forgive the awful guitars in the right ear and center. They were first takes, so you can hear how off time they are and the wrong notes I play.


This week's learning:
1) Drum patterns
2) Reverb Bus - applying varying levels of reverb to instruments

This is really cool. It's got the kind of feel to it that I associate with a few Japanese math-rock bands I like. I'm not sure exactly why. Still, very cool.

Groovy in a prog way! The rhythm is really exciting, jazz like. The guitars are absolutely fine!

Tasty drums, tasty guitar, tasty grape jam.

I agree, there's a jazzy feel to this that's nice.  Guitars sound good to me.

Love this turn to organic sounds instead of the use of synths during the previous weeks. The mixing here is really clear to me and the use of space *chef's kiss*.

OH MY GoD. This is brilliant. I love it, in every millisecond. There was absolutely nothing to complain about. The beat is awesome and the guitars 100% tasteful and delicious. You are my guitarhero this week.

Excellent groove on the drums especially on those cymbals.  The guitar progression was an instant hook.  Well done!

Maybe the math rock feel comes from me missing notes by an 1/8th note. I did that a couple times, playing a note late. Oddly, I kind of like a couple of those notes better than if they just repeated like the previous bars.

Gutiars are fine? Thank you. I guess I mixed the track well enough to hide the notes I flubbed.

I got a chef's kiss on this track! That's it. I'm done for the year. Peace, bruhs. cool

I've wanted to use acoustic sounds, but never could make them sound right. Finally, I can understand the sounds a little more to start mixing instruments without it just sounding like mud flowing through speakers.

Thanks for that. I like tasty guitars. The only problem I have with them is when you go head[stock] first into it. (Practicing my dad jokes for later in life).

Yeah? Cymbals are cool, but I don't think I'm cool enough to use them appropriately, but I'm trying. Still trying to figure out why drummers have two and three crash cymbals of different sizes and when to use them. I'll learn eventually.

Sweet man, nice little jam this week.  Love the lead guitar part, not bad for a first take.
