Speed Goat (that's my band ) is uppon us! First rough mix of my "band's" "album". The song is called Put it in the Back of Your Mind http://www.fluffypotato.com/music/SpeedGoat/BackOfYourMind.wma Lyrics and melody by my girl Beth. Arrangement and instrument parts and generic stuff like that by me. Beth sings. I play everything else (everything else being drums, percussion, guitars, and bass). Hopefully we will get a real drummer for the rest of our stuff, but I did the best I could. Fun production notes! Due to being stupid, I bought the wrong gauge strings for my floating bridge guitar. For those of you not familliar with a floating bridge guitar (like me), that means big problems. I could only get it to tune up in drop B (B, E, A, D, Gflat, B). You can imagine the fun I had trying to play waaaaaaaay up on the high frets to get it to sound right. The vocals were done with a nine-year old in the room, an ancient toy poodle, and a hyper jack russel puppy. The old-man dog really hates the puppy to make all that much more fun. You can just imagine slogging through those takes... The only way I could get the ring out of the snare drum was to duct-tape a chewie toy to the top head. So...maybe it was good that there were dogs in the house! I recorded/mixed/produced myself on my trusty Roland VS 2480 with a nice supply of SM57's and cheap Chinese condenser mics. Woo Hoo cheap technology!
