Description
This is a simple version (guitar, bass, drums) without lyrics of a song I made some time ago. I'm working on it on Garage Band hopping I can achieve a polish version.

Drums
Great guitar playing by the way..but in response to your posting...you can get some decent grooves in GB with the drums..it's just understanding what it is a drummer does ...and how to write that as a pattern.
In this song I would have changed the velocity on the bass drum and had the ride cymbal 'continuous'
It sounds intermitent here.
Just a few tweaks here and there and it will compliment your excellent playing.
You could try either drums on demand or some of the many loops that either come with GB or can be found elsewhere.
Good luck

Hola Rolf!
I noticed that you are mostly concerned about the drums in GB from your forum post Rolf. This is obviously a loop, and I'm guessing it's an audio loop rather than a midi loop. Audio loops tend to be blue and midi loops are green. Audio loops are relatively difficult to manipulate, but mid loops are much easier, and you can pencil changes to the original loop very easily. May I say that for a beginner (as far as recording goes) you have a good sound from the drums in this tune.

Some of the people who use GB might be more helpful than me (I use Logic Pro). Meanwhile, here's a great site for setting up midi drum patterns (there are also lots of other useful pages in the list on the left). http://www.tweakheadz.com/how_to_make_original_drum_tracks.htm

You can also play drums in a drum at a time (which is how I've been doing it lately) which can sound great if you know what you are doing from a drummer's point of view. From the quality of your guitar, I expect you probably have a few ideas about how a drummer thinks. You can hear what I do here (for example): http://www.macjams.com/song/51466

Send me a note if you want any more ideas about drums or recording in general and I'll try to help.

Welcome to MJ,

Great track !
wow ... you are a talented guitarist indeed and this has some great bones. Some great advice from all so far on the drum thing. Just remember you can cut up the drum loops in GB to break up the flow a bit and if you have a keyboard you can tap in the drums as an option. There are some good programs to buy if you have the cash. Tapping in the drums by hand on a keyboard can be a really effective way to go but as Neil pointed out ... think like a drummer.... 2 arms ... 2 legs. And ... panning on drums I think needs a bit of small seperation [small is the key word] as a kit on stage covers a sonic space center and slighly right and left due to the cymbals and tom placement. Nuff said ... great track !

Chops.
I like your soloing style. It is melodic and tasteful, yet has guts. Goes well against the chord progression you've chosen here. As for production, I think this tune needs to fill the space a bit more. You might look at panning and reverb -- just play around with them and see what kind of sounds you can get. Move the rhythm guitar away from dead center just a bit. When the heavy guitar comes in at 1:43, there is a nice trick that I learned from PickQuickRecords here at MJ. Duplicate the track, pan one far left, and the other far right. Then delay one relative to the other -- just a little. The guitar will then fill up the space, but leave the center open for the other instruments, like your solo guitar. Anyway, listen to these other folks. I'm a novice. Hope to hear more from you.

Rolf
I only listened on laptop speakers. I can't hear any bass. Your guitar playing is wonderful. Production wise I would say it needs something in the bass to balance it out. Do you have a MIDI keyboard? You could add some ambient pads to give it some atmosphere. If you want to try a collaboration let me know. If you can send me the raw files for the tracks I can put it in logic and have a go at putting some production into it. I'll send you a note separately.

Good effort,
Stephen

Yay!
I got your private message, and I would love to do a collab. Let me do some adjustments and I'll send you the tracks.

Do you need the chord progression?

Cheers,
Rol-f
