    Does anyone want to sing a ballad song for me?

    I was wondering if anyone is interested to sing a ballad song for me? Ive been working on this song with @leaon. He did bass and piano work and sounds killer.

    Unfortunately I cant sing, I tried many times but I failed. I had someone tried his efforts, its ok but still not what I want. He is new to singing and I cant ask much from him. Im thankful for his efforts and him trying I appreciate that a lot.

    Anyways, if any of you are interested please let me know and I can give more details.

    I would like the song to be finished this year if possible .

    My bad, brother. The timing was really terrible for me to jump on that song. I thought I’d be able to bang it out right away but with the move happening that week and getting settled into my place, amongst the overall mood swings I was experiencing, it was just the worst time to jump on something. I finally got my studio mostly treated last weekend and making some noise this week didn’t piss off the neighbors. This is the first weekend I have no plans or work bullshit to do and I’ll be in the studio all weekend, I’ll bang your tune out before I jump on anything else.

    I’m interested in the ballad, but I’m curious if you’ve already got melodies/lyrics written? It’s pretty tough for me to pull that off in a way I feel delivers something effectively. It’s fun to step outside my usual phrasing, but doesn’t always help deliver what the song needs from my POV, if that makes sense.

      hehehe, I didn't mean what you think I was referencing lol i know you were moving and had some other life things to deal with, which takes time and effort. Which I totally understand, also you have to be in the mood to sing and do recording and everything. You are working on two of my songs and i didn't want to keep pestering you to do more, You take your time and when its done its done I totally get your position and don't feel bad about not doing it fast enough. I'm starting a new job next week and i will have less time for internet and playing which sucks but I'll be out of the house out and about which I need...

      The ballad you might have heard it already, I'll post link here. The lyrics are written melody and all but its open to change to suit a singer. What I'm after is to go from clean singing to distorted singing and back to clean. This song is tribute to my aunty who passed away in 2004 and I made song express how I felt losing her. She was like a mom to use and it was hard to accept that she was not coming back.


      anyway, here is the song with other singer. He did his best but I want something better.

        Oh I wouldn't want to do anything to take away from those lyrics, brother! I'd give this one a go as well, just lemme know what you were thinking as far as clean/distorted....you mean straight up screaming or just a grittier voice?

          In chorus I was thinking to have something like…. You are pissed off and you want answers type thing… so, maybe go clean to gritty and throw some scream in second chorus leading up to solo. You can do whatever you think will fit the song. I just want dynamics change from verse to chorus.


          Thank you so much for taking on this song too, you and Leon are great man. I’ll forever grateful for taking part on my song. Thank you

            I was skimming and thought I read, "Glitter voice," and now that's all I want to hear.

                Cool tune man!

                I agree w/you on these vocals though. It sounds like he's singing with a clothespin over his nose.

                  Me too. I hope it comes with prancing.

                    Thank you.

                    He sent me few takes after whats on recording but I still didn’t like it…. More he tried more worse it got, he was mumbling lot of lines…. I said to him its ok we will try next year…

                    Today he sent me new take, some parts was much better I gave him some pointers hopefully he nails it.

                    He is trying and I can respect that

                    I will keep both copies once Rev dose his version

                    Thanks everyone for checking it out.

                        I'll do it, but trust me, I'm gonna sound worse.

                        EDIT - though, this guy' voice is absolutely drenched in reverb, a drier mix might help a lot here.
                        EDIT 2 - also, the "clank" of the bass is poking through like mad, hit that shit with a compressor at once!

                          That's me picking the bass when I should have been using fingers

                          Don't "fix the mix" when it's the player just not doing shit right the first time


                          Also, the strings were new, and I probably could have turned the brightness down a bit... still working on all that

                            yea it has a lot of reverb, trust me its better with reverb. I heard it both.. Rev is going to sing on it and should be a lot lot better.

                              Didn't know that was you playing, cool to see you guys collaborating! \m/

                              Still, the relative balance of low end and high end on a bass is absolutely something you can do a LOT with in the mix, but even then I suspect if you looked at a waveform you'd see some pretty big spikes during the more pronounced "clanks" in the part - a limiter or aggressive compressor with a threshold set to mostly bypass the bass but then slam those would both likely leave a lot of the energy of the part intact (it SOUNDS good, aside from the way it pokes out), and allow any other compressors working on the bass to keep it overall more even to have a far more stable dynamic range to have to address. This isn't a criticism of the performance, so much as bass is just a huge can of worms to mix!
