Well, this should be interesting, as Chip once said, what's one more loss in the grand scheme of things? Scrim has a wicked tune over there!!! :D
This was kind of an experiment, but worked out much better than I'd ever imagined. I was trying out some new ways to get drums, and the beat led from one thing to another. What I did was buy a loop program of real drum beats played by a real drummer, and then loaded them into Sony Music Studio 5.0. It's a really simple program, and the good lord knows I need simple. Basically you pick your loop, and paint it onto a screen, then pick another and so on. I got the basic song format down for the drums, then imported into Guitar Tracks, and then went crazy cutting, and pasting as needed. I got WAY more drum beats out of the program that way, and it was extremely simple.
This was recorded in GT 2.0, the guitar was my RG520QS, it has Dimarzio Evos in both pickup positions, and the bass was an OLP 5 string. The song took up almost all 32 tracks believe it or not. The leads were planned, but just a skeleton idea, and then the fillins were improvised. Always leads to a little more raw, but very emotional sound, and I like that. The lead was recorded in 8 bar segments, and there were several takes for a few of those. Especially the second bridge part. Had a few little ditties that were rough on me. Kinda funny thing too, I didn't use the bar one time in this whole tune. Don't know where I failed. :D
This tune comes on my 1 year anniversary of playing again, and it was really cool to see where I am now versus last year. I still have a long way to go to get all the way back, but it's comin. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it, it took considerably longer than my melee tunes, in fact there's more time in this than in almost all my other tunes put together. But it's all about learning, and I have learned a ton here. Thanks for all the support, and friendship.
