Back home for a bit
Description : This was my entry into a remix contest by Anna Yvette for her song "Stars and Moon." I don't enter a lot of remix contests and this song will give you an idea why, hahaha. A huge thanks to Anna Yvette for allowing people like me to really mess up her work. This one was a bit of a challenge due to the vocals already being mixed. Unfortunately, downloads are restricted on this one per her request. Thanks for listening.
Description : There are a lot of talented people on Looperman, but probably not many as talented as Tumbleweed. Not only is Ed one of the finest guitar players around, he is also a master at arranging, composition, and production. Ed was kind enough to take an interest in remixing the original "Stone Cold" and has turned it into something very special indeed. Sit back and enjoy that smooth buttery tone that one can achieve only through years of hard work and practice. This is truly one hell of a great ride. You can hear more of Ed's amazing work over at his place, but bundle up, it's cold up there: http://www.looperman.com/users/profile/498019
You should all direct your comments to Ed, he's the genius behind this one and deserves all of the credit. Enjoy
Description : EDIT: I took Static's critique to heart, so the latest version has a longer intro, better drums (I hope), and a different ending. Static, thanks for the guidance, greatly appreciated. I finally had a bit of time to get into the studio and do a little recording. I found this amazing pella by Minette and thought I would try to put something together for it. The pella is actually several separate pellas and unfortunately, I was unable to assemble all of the pieces correctly, so my apologies to Minette. Here is the link to her pella (at least the first one): http://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/5782
I wanted a live feel to this one, so I started with some drum loops and her vox. All of the synth parts, the guitar parts, and the bass guitar were recorded live, in one take, each instrument one at a time. That's why you will hear some buzz on the bass from the amp, and in spots it seems I am chasing the beat somewhat. I'm unsure about the mix as well. My hearing is just about gone, so all of the mixing is done by sight now, instead of with my ears. When I listen I have to crank the volume to 11 and that isn't an optimal way to mix and master. So if you hear something way out of whack, let me know and I'll try to fix it. Again, I would like to thank Minette for sharing her gifts with us, and I hope I did your pella a little justice. If you want to remix my remix, you can find all of the individual instrument stems at the following link: https://www.mediafire.com/?d46hog4wan3lmk4
Drums were loops, guitars are Fender Strat and Fender acoustic/electric, Ibanez bass, and the synths are KVR's SynthMaster. Tempo is 95bpm. Thanks for listening.
Description : This song started out with just me on acoustic guitar, and some added pads and strings. Tumbleweed (Ed Cunningham) was kind enough to do a bit of rearranging, and added drums, bass, and his wonderful lead guitar. He also did all of the production on this one. His guitar work is just about as good as it gets. Stop by his profile and give his other work a listen. You can find him here: http://www.looperman.com/users/detail/498019
There might be another version of this track soon with vocals on it :) Check back often and bring a friend, haha.
Description : When I heard the magnificent vocals from Janis71, I knew I had to do something with them. Spanish/classical music probably was the furthest thing from her mind when she posted these, but it is what I was inspired to do. Pretty simple song, only a nylon stringed guitar, strings, and the amazing vocal talents of Janis71. You can find her acapella here: http://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/4043
And her profile here: http://www.looperman.com/users/profile/855066
A huge thanks to Janis for posting her pellas and sharing her amazing gifts. Thanks for listening. Constructive feedback is appreciated. This really should be in a Spanish genre, but the closest I could find was classical. Sorry about that.
Description : Look out Nashville, here we come, hahaha. I heard this marvelous pella by Patricia Edwards, saw she had an idea it should be a country tune, and thought I would give it a go. I'm not sure how "country" it turned out, but I can sure envision playing along while Patricia sings this one in Nashville or Austin. Not sure about the mix. The older I get, the more my hearing deteriorates and the more I have to rely on my sight to mix and master. All constructive feedback is greatly appreciated. A huge thanks to Patricia for sharing her gifts. Here's a link to her pella: http://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/4583
The violin is a chopped up Magix loop :) Thanks to them as well. Sorry about the idiot rhythm guitar player making the mistake on the chord at the 3:52 mark (slaps himself in the forehead.)
