Original Samples

Drums, bass, and three guitar tracks.


Laid down the drums a few pieces at a time, and added a conga layer at the end. Added a bass line after figuring out the structure of the song. (The drums and bass I did on the NanoKey.) Then I added a soft pad during the middle break. You can hardly hear it. I keep the NanoKey upstairs, so I was able to just noodle around with this without being anti-social. :)

Then I went downstairs to the studio, and added the three guitars using the GT-6. The two rhythm guitars are hard panned left and right, and are EQed with a Marshall Amp profile. These are dry, no reverb, as is the trend these days.

The lead guitar is played through a Twin with the GT-6, and just a hint of small room reverb.

Other Notes

A little rockier than I intended, but not too bad.
