Jeez, those back ups sound hideous! Nothin' a little chorus and reverb won't solve! Ha!
Lead vocals came out strong, as I knew they would, and although I can do better, the question would be- 'why??' Who the heck wants to hear somebody do vocals or guitar that sounds perfect on the 45th try? Much better to do 1 take and keep the energy, barring some coughing fit or other disaster like a phone ringing or a rooster of passing traffic, jet, et al. And all that stuff happens here, I can assure you!
So I kept the first vocal takes, and I can live with them. The bass line killed it and my version of JJ Flash is hot. HOT. HOT. Now it's rehearsal for the supporting rythm guitar track, then I'll pop out a raunchy solo and then bounce/mix and master. I really like the way this CD is coming out, and I'm 3 songs in. Next I will be doing a version of Tobbaco Road and then Woodstock. I intend to make them my own.
