The vocals were hilarious, I put you on the left and me on the right and we sound like a couple of drunk football fans at the pub derek-taylor_01_gifBut its early days!  

Oh my god, that would have been a cacophony - I muted your vocal track when recording, so to not get distracted.blue-meanie

The Hole Got Fixed I went with the 2nd drum track but I want you to try again, this time maybe soloing the guitar chop and lead tracks together with the 140-time to keep you in line, I had to do some editing there! And what I meant by a busier track is more like kick-kick-rim/snare rest k-k-snare on each bar. We can cheat by using the time track for hi-hats if you want! And we can always edit fills later, I wouldn't worry about those too much, either keep it very simple or avoid for now. TBH I think drums are quite hard to do well in reggae, because errors really stand out (cf my guitar skills!).

Hmmm... that could be interesting... I won't get a chance to record anymore drums for 3 weeks - I have an excursion tomorrow, Curriculum day Wednesday, and last day of term on Thursday, then it's School Holidays for two weeks.a-hard-days-night-paul-10 Hopefully it's not urgent 

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh... That would make sense. I'll definitely try that first day back next term!john-lennon-salute_gif I'm determined to do my own hi-hats...a-hard-days-night-paul-4ahdn_paul_02 Apologies everyone to anyone who murdered their some ears with some frankly quite rushed overdubs from mepaul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

That's cool Holey, we've got enough to muck about with until we really need to do The Take. I'm sure the others are champing at the bit to make their contributions!

Is this the final version?  

Yeah, I could fiddle some more without really changing it. I really like the drums and vocals (all of them), they're the bits I worry about most.   

OK! Would someone write up a summary post? I will pin it to be the 2nd post in the thread. Make sure to add the post number range that encompases the work on the song.

Here is a rough mix for people to follow what's currently going on. I've just recorded an alternative bassline closer to what I'm hearing in my head and a bit less woolly than the first one:

https://drive.google.com/open?.....GJlOykriDa

I make no apologies for the vocals, we're just having fun!

edit: I see we have competing versions of project summaries at the start of the thread, but I'm pretty sure my contributors list is right.

HAHAHAHAHAHA That's wizard beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Right, I'm gonna try a vocal as soon as I get over this cold. a-hard-days-night-paul-5 Otherwise it sounds pretty good concept-wise, I'm liking the reggae Helter Skelter (I couldn't quite picture it before). paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I might try a terrible guitar solo too, soonish or laterish. ahdn_george_01

Please do! Listening to the song for inspiration, you hear all these little things they added, like the echoed guitar chords just before the guitar solo, just dubbed in there for effect! And when I figured out the vocal line on the guitar I thought oh wow Paul's singing a guitar riff. Don't feel you have to imitate the solo riff, think of something different. There's heaps of reggae tips on youtube if you need inspiration. In fact I just got inspired by this:

I'm thinking "yeah I should redo that rhythm track to be more muted and proper reggae. Wait , those chords...that progression would sound really good in this!" It's 4am and I'm seriously considering tracking a new rhythm piece (I have insomnia and had a good sleep today, it's ok) paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I’ve got a two day time slot April 21 and 22. I could record some electric piano if desired.

That would be awesome! And it just so happens that I've just done a new thing with it:

https://drive.google.com/open?.....YeQmhQZ7ah

I thought that progression the guy above did would work really well for the song so now the verses go Em/Em/A/D and the choruses go A/D/E/G (passing chord)/ and I changed the feel of the bassline. And I've redone the rhythm guitar and the chukka guitar and made separate sections of the intro guitar riff. The link above is just a mix of it but if you want the multitracks I can compress them for you. I love finding new things in a song yay!

Another mix, with the drum track turned into stereo and added reverb and then the whole mix splashed with delay and a slow phaser:

https://drive.google.com/open?.....5TYObjakTM

that's practically dub already.

Can you play ogg files? If not, you might need to install a codec to do that. Audacity uses ogg for compressing projects because it's not encumbered by patent law like mp3s. I believe there's a windows media codec to play them, you may need another to create them.

Recording the vocals now. It's REALLY DIFFICULT. The reggae beat keeps throwing me off and my microphone sucks...

*Brushes cobwebs off*

So... Today in my frees, I remembered I needed to do a new drum track. 

So I did. Hopefully it's passable... https://drive.google.com/open?.....CUp-BiRWxK

 

I realised that I used the old aup to record on, not the new one. This may or may not be an issue, but you'll need to copy the drums into the new one, sorry @ewe2. 

Let's finish this song!
