Description
Getting my Jagger on.

The music for this was written and played by Erik Larsen, a fellow Reaper user and bud. I wrote the lyrics, melodies, and sang all the parts.

Gotta excuse the mix. When I put a song together that originated from somebody else, I usually prefer them to send me *raw* stems with absolutely NO plugins or fx. I can't stand the sound of mixing my plugins on top of other plugins because the final mix sounds too digital and over-processed--like this one.

But I do appreciate that he went through the trouble of getting the stems together and uploading them for me, so I can't really complain much.

As
soon as I heard the guitars and the chords, I went, "I know exactly where I want take this vocally. I even tried to get a Watts-ish tone on the snare during the mix.

Thx Skean
Erik and I have done about 4 or 5 songs together now, so we're getting pretty attuned. This is the first one I've posted here, though.

More Cowbell!
Some mixes produce more problems than they are worth, but this one was worth all the effort, Sam.

Fortuantely,
I really like the song itself. Of all the songs I've sang for Erik, this is the one I actually listen to the most. I think it's a little catchy. The others are really hard rock.

Thanks
Charlie. That's good to hear because I pulled my hair out trying to get things to sound at least decent.

Even with you telling us it sounds digital
I don't hear that. I think in places the vocals are hard to hear, but it's not bad. I get the Jagger ref.

Hey
Fred. I can be too anal at times, I suppose. By the way, all obligations are done so now it's time for some jazz. ;)

Cool
Very enjoyable - the only thing I'd change is to give the vocals (and maybe the bass - but I would say that wouldn't I!) a bit more prominence in the mix. Some crazy tom activity in one section that doesn't work that well for me. Backing vocals are classic!
Great post!!
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

My
vocal tracks already had Erik's compression, eq, and verb burned in, so I couldn't do much to them (this is why I prefer raw stems). After I sent my tracks to Erik--who originally mixed this--I deleted them on my end, so I didn't have my own tracks to fall back on. My only alternative would be to boost the volume a bit.

I do know precisely what and where you mean about the toms. The pre-effected drums tracks were the worst. This wasn't a mix as much as a "re-tuning" of Erik's original mix.

But thanks Jiguma. Stuff like that is gold.

Sounds good!
Mix and everything. Does have a Mick Taylor era Stones vibe. The back ground refrain when you sing "let me out" sounds very Jaggeresque. :)

Yeah
when I first heard Erik's original music track and heard those chords, the Stones popped right up. I just took it from there.

Let Me Out
It does sound over produced but it's really good. I like the crunchy guitar I find the bottom end a bit muddy hard to differentiate the bass and drums in certain spots. Great vocals glad you kept them fairly dry. Catchy rock corus. Good stuff Sammy

Some cool griffin and leads by your Bud Erik but I must say the vocal performance really shines and complements the driving beat, Rock indeed!!
