Dearly Departed

By Saucey-dough on April 19, 2020 10:26 pm

This week was a very special collab to me. My girlfriend and I recorded a song that we love to sing on the acoustic guitar. It's a cover by the artist Shakey Graves. I wanted to put a little more of an uptempo sound to it, with a pop/dance vibe. I thought it was pretty successful. I am still struggling on recording vocals, but this is the reason I joined WBs..to learn. I am starting to understand the principles of compression, normalizing gain, etc.

This was her first time ever being recorded in a "studio." I think she nailed it!

On a side note, she also wanted to begin a weekly project for herself. She has begun to dive into photography and photoshop. Her intentions are to hopefully create a weekly photo along with my WBs moving forward. She created the image below.

Enjoy!

Awesome job to you and Haley, dude.  This is great.  You guys nailed those harmonies, you've got to get her on more tracks.  Nice job on the production too, lots of cool use of panning and those drums sound huge.   Looking forward to more inter-household collabs from yall.

Yea, shes got quite the voice. I am happy she approached the track with some serious confidence. This will certainly be the first of many inter-household collabs. And bro...you know my drums are always going to sound huge.
