The only thing I noticed which could maybe be improved, is that the recording sounds very soft and a bit muted whereas the original is brighter, shinier and also a little sharper (not regarding being in tune) IMO. But I bet that has got something to do with the microphone, hasn't it?  

Yeah, probably. ahdn_paul_01
Anyway, thanks for the feedback*! a-hard-days-night-george-9

*Not this kind of feedback, as much as I like it.
FEEDBAKKKK

Wow, that was stunning. Great job, @Beatlebug ! One thing I would say though is, whilst I'm not criticising your singing, you should play around with vocal production to tailor each song you're covering. On this song I would have brought the vocals a bit higher in the mix and made them as solid sounding as possible, and on the recording really given it your all.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

I would have, too, except that I recorded the vocals and the lead guitar on the same track. If I did it again (which I might -- you never know ahdn_george_06), I'd devote separate tracks to each guitar part and vocals as I did on 'Smile' above.

To refresh your ears after the above crapness...
HAVE some MULTITRACKED GLORIES

This one has rhythm guitar, 'bass' (actually a second guitar playing a bassline, because I don't have a bass -- yet ahdn_paul_01), slide guitar, and two vocal tracks. Getting to hear all the pieces together is absolutely AMAZING to me beatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gif I'm very proud o' this one. a-hard-days-night-john-1

That reminds me of a better executed Sun King . So relaxing, so awesome. Meditative is a better word, I think.

And how good do the multitracks sound??beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Well this is technically a parody and not so much a cover but I'd done this a couple of years  ago just using softsynth instruments and decided to remaster with guitars and bass:

It's a parody of a rude song by a favourite band about people who buy jpegs of ships for Star Citizen, just poking fun. Left side is fuzz guitar, right side is overdriven guitar, makes a nice warm sound.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.
