Ok, let's start the experiment 😀
As mentioned in the lockdown challenge thread, I composed a short tune for my German bagpipe, called it "Regentanz".
For the lockdown challenge, backing tracks were given to complete the song. Now the opposite: A given lead melody shall be transformed into a short song by adding some backing noise 😀
Since I do not have an electric guitar, it would be very interesting whether a nice metal version can be created out of it 😃
However, this is not a challenge, so if anybody wants to try something else, please do it 😀 There are also no limits for the length of the song. If you want to copy the template track up to 30 minutes, ok 😀 And there is no deadline.
I did a first try and recorded some chords with my acoustic guitar. Then I added some strings and drums with the DAW (Cakewalk). And a lot of reverb. I'm alway told that I use too much reverb. But somehow I like reverb and therefore push the reverb button too hard, I guess 😀
Mixing is still developable. But now I'm mixing on speakers instead of headphones as suggested by @warrenpridgeon. That actually worked better!
Here's my result:
For the lead track I mixed two recordings to conceal little faults, I'm just playing the German bagpipe for around 3 months 😅
I hope the rhythm is spot on enough to work with it. I also have currently some tuning problems with my bagpipe, probably the change in temperature. But I hope the track is sufficient, at least for some little experiments in the name of fun and curiosity 😁
So, here is the SoundCloud link. Speed is 150 bpm. Hope you can keep up with it 😆
So, go ahead and have fun 😃
Since it's a composition of my own, there are no copyright problems. Feel free to clip it, switch it, stretch it, change it or mute it as you please 😀
