So this week I opted for the infamous (ambitious?) "Snuff" by Slipknot. I did so as a request by a friend, but I really like the song, and it's pretty much right along my style.
Of course, that's where the simplicity for this week ends. I broke a string trying various tunings for the guitar, ended up putting on new ones and playing tuned way down in standard tuning. The temperature is well over 90F, so I was getting hot and aggravated.
Then of course, I practiced and practiced, and regardless of how well I thought I could do it, it never came out very good. Finally, I just got a good take and stuck with it. Problem? Yeeeeees, of course. The battery on my guitar's pickup was dying, so the guitar has this fuzz ... it almost sounds intentional, but I'll admit that it's not.
To cap it all off, listening back, I realized the vocals are pretty hot in the mix (loud compared to the guitar), but in my rush to get done I didn't save the session tracks, so there's no fixing it. lol
Anyway, it is OK, but not my favorite podcast.
Oh and that little "whooooaaaa" part toward the end ... just pretend I'm Tarzan or something. :-D
