The overdriven guitar sounds very..... sorry about this.... cheap and straight in sounding with no depth could you perhaps re-amp the direct guitar part and mic it and get some real amp sounding depth out of it? If not f - it the song is great just tryin to help cause I dig the tune.
thank you! i'm glad you dig it. and ty for the constructive crit
YES. you are very right about the lead tone... it lacks depth... sounds stiff and papery.. sadly, that was the overdrive channel of my extremely mediocre amp..
can't even reamp (did you think it was an amp simulator? .. if so, that's hilarious)
the guitar tones is a huge issue that bothered me....... so much that i have a new amp on order from Joe Morgan!
i plan to rerecord these tracks (along w new instrumentals to continue the series) w my new setup.. i have all new close-mics for the drums too.. and a Heil Pr-30 for gtr (the record used a modded sm57)... so this time around, tones will be deep
