So, I got I've been actually really trying to sit down and get the hang of recording/drum programming and such. This is my first real take at it. It's just a simple progression, not really a "song" but yeah, figured you guys might have some recording advice or something.

I don't know how to just put the song file here, or if I even can.


Can I ask what program you're using?

I'd say for the first part and the ending, I'd bump up the ambient guitar riff a little in the mix, and tone down the hi-hat...

Also, if your program has a "swing" functionality to add to your loop, I would use that slightly... it offsets the timing by a hair to not make the notes sound so digitally placed and rigidly timed...

I'd also use a different sound for the rimshot sound or whatever it was... it is just a little too high pitched and wooden sounding to me...

Overall it is a great start though... It actually reminded me of some of the more subtle parts of BTBAM's earlier stuff...

Pay him for the pizza.

pro tools 9. Plugging directly into the computer and using guitar rig 5 for the guitar stuff.

I'm gonna re do a lot of the drums later as well as try and actually flesh it out into a song/give it a real structure.

And BTBAM is fantastic. I could only ever wish to be a quarter of the guitarist as Paul Waggoner.

Oh, and as for the bass/guitar jokes...

Nope.

Here's some drummer jokes to balance it out

How do drummers get away with parking in handicapped spaces?

They put their sticks on the dashboard

What do you call a person who hangs out with musicians?

A Drummer



Badum tshhh!
