I've been working on this for 3 days, getting the production right. I re-recorded the guitars some 5 times before I got this version. Enjoy!
It could be the laptop I'm listening to this on, but it sounds a hair bright on the guitar. You get a really nice crunch tone and it's very open sounding, certainly not the least bit boxy (which seems more prevalent these days). You must have cranked the heck out of that amp.
What else can I say other than the fact that it's a great song and it sounds like you had a lot of fun with it. Good job!
I will note that at this point the whole song is lacking in the low end department. I'm taking my recording gear to my friend's place tomorrow to record him playing bass, because he has a sweet bass guitar sound.
It was a lot of fun, and I'm still mixing certain tracks in, trying to get that perfect sound. Laptop speakers make the sound bright on my end too, but with my surround headphones the guitars sound great.
I did have the amp cranked to a band-type setting. Recording is the only excuse my parents take for that kind of volume in the house, and it just sounds so great that way.
There's nothing quite like a cranked amp
I dunno, on my earphones, there is a big hole in the middle. Mids are just not there. I think the guitar has a bit too much gain on it. Seems a bit choked, rather than the fat fullness. Often in recording, you can use a lot less gain than you might think. How close were you looking to get to original?
