Mood Swing

By onlyjokinen on April 22, 2018 9:16 pm

Thought I'd change it up for this week. I've been doing more airy/delay style songs and wanted something different. I started on Thursday and built this song bit by bit. The ending was in intro until yesterday and the song was built backwards.

Thanks to @mikememo for hooking it up with lessons on modifying pitch on clean guitar to use as a bass. I think it really filled the song out nice. @mikememo no problem.

Funkaayyyyy, usually not a fan of wah/flange but it works so good in this song.  This would be a blast to jam to on drums if you catch my drift yikes

i mean this songs frickin great but that middle solo is fantastic

also it got a "i like this one"/10 from Abby, so that's pretty good

Thanks dudes! I had fun with that middle solo. The buildup is lame as fuck, but I needed something to fill the void.

Glad I could assist with some desk-dancing, haha. Thanks! I'm glad I went with the wah on this instead of a flanger, I think it brought more funky-ness.

Thanks! Yep, that's all me. It was fun on every instrument this week due to it not being my original style.

This kicks so much ass.

Been listening through your stuff and this is my favourite, getting a RATM feel from the main riff. So it actually is a guitar used as a bass? Ive tried that myself but never got it sounding decent lol, nice job!

Thanks for the listens! It is in fact a guitar as a bass, yes. I first recorded it clean and then pitched it down fully while assigning it to Guitar Rig 5 with the FunkBass amp pre-set. Honestly, it turned out 10x better than I expected.
