The tar is a North African frame drum. This song features 2 tracks of tar playing a groove in 15 (or 7 1/2, depending on how you count it), 3 tracks of a second tar part, 2 tracks of Middle Eastern-style tambourine, a shaker track on the pulse, finger cymbals on the 1 each time it comes around, and two vocal tracks. It is a rough mix. I am still learning how to mix. Recording the drums was easy with the Blue Snowball, once I figured out which setting to use. The second tar part actually includes a track each of the three possible mic settings on the Snowball, if that makes any sense. There are no effects on the drums. Vocals were recorded using the Female Basic setting on GB. This kind of music is one of my guilty pleasures. I hope it takes you to a place beyond words, and I hope it inspires you in some way.
