Song 1 - "Another Brick in the Wall" by Pink Floyd

I would love to, but I just bought a Boss Katana 210. I’m not rich enough for GAS yet! :rofl:

Not sure how long this will stay up on Youtube but I couldn’t figure out how to upload and embed a MP3.

First time playing this one, so it took me a few tries, especially picking up on the audio cues when the solo is coming to an end. Didn’t have time to sync the video with the audio so it’s an audio only track. Hope you guys enjoy!

Nice job! My only real comment is that, to me, the bass is a little low on the mix (even with headphones). That could be intentional, and that’s fine - just commenting. Look forward to your next one…

You’re in your way! I commented in the covers thread. Well done!

Seems to have gone through some compression issues after exporting from ableton, then into iMovie, then to YouTube. I purposely made the bass louder than the original mix. It sounded great listening to the MP3 from my headphones. I’ll adjust the mix for the next one!

I think the level is quite good actually.
I even heard it well through my crappy phone speaker, as well as on my good PC speakers.
Both a-ok

It’s not perfect but I think it’s time to move on to another song, or instead of one of my favorites this will become one I hate :wink:

Hey @jakub.r.salata, great start to the challenge.
Overall pretty good job. Timing very good.
Pay a bit of attention to note duration and rests to dial it into spot on.

Well, here’s my attempt at this song. Backing tracks and my playing to the right speaker, original recording in the left speaker. Used a DAW to record off my NUX MPP-3 and synced time a bit between the original and backing tracks, but otherwise un-edited. My plan was to sync this with video, but that’s stretching my tech skills at this moment. I saved to google drive, hope that’s ok. There’s a few timing issues and some note screw-ups, but I’m not in the mood to record it again today. I’ll keep working at it and post up a revised recording at a later date.

Ok, I think I figured out the video/audio thing. Here’s a link to the video - slightly out of sync but not too bad, I think. Again, original is in the left channel and no-bass backing track + me on the right.

Great job @brik1970! I honestly didn’t hear any timing/note screw ups (I watched video, but didn’t listen to google drive version). I envy you for getting it in 3 takes, I had to listen to that guy screaming about pudding half a million times or so :slight_smile: Very nice tone too.

Thank you for the kind words. :slightly_smiling_face: Both versions are identical audio, I just merged it to the video for the youtube post (first time really filming myself in any capacity and first time using video/audio editing software - so I had a few hurdles to conquer here… lol).

I guess I should have been a little more clear - this was my third attempt at recording it. I practiced the song quite a bit before this… about 6 hours across 2 or 3 days.

As for the tone compliment, thank you. There was no post-processing on it in the DAW, this was raw output from my bass and headphone amp into the recording software. I was rather happy with how that came out, so thank you (second time recording audio and messing with a DAW).

No, I figured you practiced a lot before recording. That’s the key to doing a good cover, play it until it becomes autopilot. I envy the 3 recording attempts though, since my brain seems to stop working the instant I press record!

Youtube hit me with the copyright, reposting this one (did another take, boosted the bass a bit). Hopefully this works!
