Comfort and Funky Joy



 Genre: Holiday

Get Flash to see this player.

Comfort and Joy with a little Funk! Most of my uploads have been live music, this is no different. Pastor Dr. Marciel Holmes (Rest In Peace Brother) was our Worship Pastor for awhile, and one December Sunday we played a funky instrumental version of Comfort and Joy or God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. The Drummer and lead synth players were from the youth group - about 14-15 years old. I was fortunate to play with the bass player Alan, in several variations of church bands, a very talented Guitarist indeed. I am playing the guitar - having fun... Hope you enjoy.

Live recording using a Sony MD recorder and stereo mics I made from Radio Shack parts and internet schematics. Sounds like I was playing my Guild S-284 stratish direct into the snake, with no effects.
Cleaned up the beginning and end and applied Fade in and out using Audacity.

Comfort and joy
With a live recording it always takes a second to get used to the sound with all imperfections. But then I'm starting to groove to this. I love the feel of the bass player. He is good indeed. (I'm not so wild about the piano part. Too many notes for a laid-back groove.)

well, that's all I got right now. I came across my old Sony MD recorder, and dozens of disks. I recorded live worship with lots of worship teams (from about 1999 - 2007). Almost all live monitor mixes (one recording was plugged into the board, I'll have to listen to it). Tried to give the recording the best stereo image by using my (guitar) monitor and the worship leader's monitor. Now that I play bass, I realize I have severe bass envy after playing with some great bassists, but I am having fun with my 4 and 5 string basses.

cool! A hip-hop-ish version works quite well. For the first time, I grooved to an Xmas tune. Great funkiness.

The drums are on top
and being a drummer I like that, but it really is dwarfing the rest. Not too shabby.

Drums on top...
I built the Mics from Radio Shack parts and internet plans - they picked up like crazy! When you look at the waveform - the drum hits are massive spikes (but not driven to distortion). I did run it through a bit of EQ (to tone down the synth) and compression to normalize the drums a bit in post production. Future plans are to run my MD recordings to digital through my Analog Milk Crate Studio with my Alesis Compressor and 31-band EQ before the A to D so I can bump the volume without losing headroom or distorting the drum hits -- but I didn't want to lose the opportunity to get this out for the season and I am missing correct cables to record off my MD right now.

Did you notice in the description... the drummer was only about 14 at the time, it was kinda funny, when I went to another church, without anyone knowing where I went - he ended up playing drums there a few months later too. Funny how circles intersect like that. To the best of my knowledge, he didn't even have a kit at home to practice on - that's why you don't hear a lot of classic drum patterns - the kid was definitely gifted.
