White Album 2018 Inspiration

Postby jwarv » Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:51 pm

With all the articles I've been reading and listening to Giles Martin's mix, I couldn't help but be inspired to collaborate with my buddies over the internet. I live in NJ, one in DC and the other in Laos with a 12 hour difference.It can be a bit frustrating waiting for him to chime in the next morning (or night) and vice versa.

Anyway, I wrote the melody, sang and played acoustic and synth. DC dude played drums and bass. Laos lad wrote the lyrics and played lead guitar. I was able to mix it all using Mixcraft 8 Pro.

Funny, I never told Laos lad to do this but he ended up writing an abstract song about the White Album itself. I adapted and added some lyrics to almost, but not quite, exhaust the references. See if you can pick them all out.

Enjoy!

Some great sounds in this track, including the voice. Not sure about the stereo placement of the tracks, otherwise lovely :)

Thanks! Yeah, not everyone is a fan of panning lead parts. Oddly enough, it's what Giles did with White Album. It must have seeped into my subconscious. But that's the way it is with mixing. A lot like cooking. To each person's taste.
