Okay yeah I was just messing around this morning -- and I started playing this riff in the git-fiddle and I thought to myself "hey, this is like one of those sad-sounding riffs that StB likes."
So, with nothing much else to do, I decided to develop it a little bit, and came up with this
But what with my more up beat tendancies, i sped up the tempo and countered the chorus with a progressive scale in the lead part -- see its about contridictions
Anyway, I did a rushed mix, an even more rushed master (no eq fine tuning, just a little compression and lots of limiting).
The guitars, well, yeah I like the tone for this type of song... they are compressed so heavily to squeeze every possible bit of "fuzziness" out of them that they sound pretty smooth.
Okay, as usual, listen, laugh, make jokes.
