  1. I wrote a super detailed comment and I just wiped it by accident. SO ANNOYED LOL. It's a decent effort. Use a click track if it's audio, but if the synth is midi then quantize. Add some sawtooth or run it through some overdrive to give it the edge you hear in the song. The bass hits some good frequencies though, not bad. The strings could use some adjusting on the ADSR envelope and some extending of the high+low mids. Increase the attack and give it some more high end. If you have a tremolo patch, try that instead for the intro. Use a warm synth patch as the drums kick in. The drums
  2. As an amateur producer I can assure you that it is not autotune. It's more likely to be an overdrive stompbox. I've previously used guitar effects on vocals to achieve the same feeling. Oddly enough, the song I used it on was quite thematically similar to Major Minus, so I guess authority fear and crushed vocals go well together.
  3. I love every single thing about this song. Sure the live version is better but the studio version is enormous too. :)
  4. me too, rafael! we are alike in this regard. let's be friends.
  5. Nice facial hair. The guitar playing and singing is pretty great too.
  6. here's how i learn :) http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=coldplay+paradise+covers&aq=f
  7. I've heard that many times, but I've seen a professional remove them all at once and it didn't damage the guitar in the long run so I'm not sure how viable that advice is. Personally though, I unwind the string until it's loose enough to remove rather than snip them, that way the guitar can adjust. :)
  8. Welcome to the forums kylee! Google google google. Actually some of the tutorials out there are a bit useless. so since i cant sleep i'll quickly type one up. But PLEASE watch a video BEFORE reading my instructions, just in case ive said something wrong! 1. remove all previous strings. 2. clean surface of guitar, fretboard. 3. remove bridge pin for the low e string. insert string's end with the little ring on it for a little way. insert the pin over it. it should feel like its not gonna come out again without a hefty tug. 4. stretch the string out to the neck. thread it through th
  9. Posts: 1,000 CONGRATS ;D You completely undersold yourself here and without good reason! I thought this was cover was impressive and completely listenable. Especially if you've only been playing guitar for two weeks? That can't be right, surely? This is far too professional for that. The backing tracks go down quite well! And those vocal effects are trippy as pie. Your voice sounds great! There's a certain charm to the quality of your voice. Those guitar parts sound great, especially with the way you've overlayered them. I feel a bit silly with all my expensive software if you can pr
  10. i thought jonny used natural harmonics on 12th-7th?
  11. Cheers man! The reason I recorded this is because I was experimenting with mic positions. So, it's far from perfect. The extra reverb is mostly to put some proverbial gaffa tape over my room's bad acoustics... :D Thanks all!!! A much warmer response than I could have hoped for! Maybe I will do some more after all...and track the vocals separately this time :P Champion - It's mutual! And hey, I just might! :)
  12. Plenty - just do a google search and decide which one you like! :) I, personally, prefer the earphone/headphone method - just make sure you can hear yourself at the same time! :)

  13. Nop - I forgot Jonny's part. Reuploading as we speak. :D EDIT: Try again now! :)
  14. That would work. I reckon a pair of earphones is your best bet then :)

  15. Use a metronome! Tried and true, professionals still do. :)

  16. It's 1am! I felt like being a bit silly. http://soundcloud.com/williamerasmus/us-against-the-world-coldplay
  17. AWESOME! Macbook Pro's are ultimate! What sort of videos do you make? :)

  18. Hal Leonard sells the books at good music stores or online, but it'll be pricey. (We're talking 80USD here, the last time I checked.)

  19. Sitting at my computer at home I actually went "WHOOOAA" verbally. I wish I could pay you to do mine too, but Oxford is a long way away :D
  20. Not at all! Not too much is going on. just bought avid media composer and pro tools so i'm really excited. how about yourself?

  21. Write a lead line, and finalise it. Rehearse rehearse rehearse. When you're ready, record each instrument seperately with a click track in your headphones (don't let the click come up in the recording!) and send it to me. :)
