Just thought I'd post our 'band's' Myspace.
It's a comedy band - we only have one mastered song - but please give it a listen.
More will be coming soon.
Cheers!

Howdy folks.

I have been studying music technology for a few years now. One thing I really enjoy doing is recreating some of my favourite songs. Sometimes I like to get as close to the original as I can and sometimes I put my own thing in with it.

The other day I decided to try Imagine by Lennon. Now because it was recorded with modern gear, etc, it doesn't really sound anything like the original, but I wasn't aiming for that anyway. The drums on this version are way too loud and sharp. Unfortunately I deleted the multitrack so I can't do another mixdown! I also added a quite over-the-top choir section.

It is mainly to test myself and my ears. I think it sounds nice. But of course, it doesn't have the warmth the original does. Or vocals as I cannot sing!

Remember that MySpace reduces the sound quality to save on bandwidth or something, so if anyone wants a high-quality copy then just message me. I

'm not tooting my own horn, but I thought I'd find people here who'd appreciate this. I'd like if you could tell me what you think? Any mistakes, etc? It's 3rd from the top.

Cheers guys.

The piano arrangement is spot on! An acoustic guitar would sound good in this version too. Shame you can't drop the drums completely I think it detracts from the overall effect. Great effort though - do you have any other examples of famous tracks you have re-recorded?

Hi, thanks for all the comments!

The End - I really wish I didn't delete the multitrack. It's a bad habit I have developed to save space. But more often than not, I delete a multitrack and then later I find something I don't like in the track and it's too late! I may do another version if I find the time :)

I also have a version of Let it Be I recorded a long time ago... maybe 2 years ago, but I'm very unhappy with it. I did it when I only just learned of recording and mixing, etc, so I feel now I can do a lot better, but I may put it online sometime.

Revolution - Yeah, they are programmed, but they are sampled from a drumkit I use in college. I recorded each drum and I just used a sampler at home for the arrangement.

Oh and does anyone know where I could find some vocals? Would anyone want to record some for me? :P

has nothing to do with the beatles, really.
they are the biggest inspiration of my life as it was like the only music i did listen to between ages 13-19.
but anyway, here's me and my gf's indiepop-duo.
we released our first record in 2005 on the popkonst recordings cd-r-label, and just recently the italian cassette label best kept secret released our first recording and our second ep on cassette.
have a listen, some of you lo-fi spirits may like some of it.

Ask To Fall was recorded last Friday. I've uploaded another song and this one and the other two were recorded in December 2005. There's more coming up, but like you (hehe) we work in a slow rhythm.  ;D
