My Little Georgia Rose take 2 with vocals

Well, I recorded all the tracks, through in some vocals and a few shouts for fun. Hope you like it. Still working on getting my pickin a bit smoother, but guess that will come with time hopefully. (Fingers crossed)
I was going to try some vamping but I couldnt quite get it right :joy: So anyway, did ma best y’all :wink:

Love this Jon. Outstanding! Just curious; how did you work in the voice harmony? Did you overdub your own voice then? Sounds great!

Thanks mate. Yes I recorded each track. Guitar, banjo, mandolin, etc. Then vocals. Harmonies are just me again on separate tracks for each. :+1:

Fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

If I had any input for making it better (and this is extremely minor) it’d be to back off the reverb just a little bit. I speak from experience. I have a tendency to overdo the effects on my recordings. I think adding too much reverb takes away from the “presence” of the audio.

At any rate, this is so awesome I almost feel like a heel even mentioning it. Great work!

No that’s a fair comment Mark. I do have a habit of adding perhaps a bit too much reverb sometimes. I have tried to back it off a bit. Trouble is when you’ve been sitting mixing for hours your ear sometimes gets immune to it. Probably tomorrow when I listen again through headphones I’ll notice it more :rofl: :+1:

In answer to your question Ken, I used Logic pro to record. Used a condenser mic with phantom power through a focusrite USB preamp to mac. Then used effects in logic pro such as a compressor, limiter and some eq etc. The mic I used on this is a supercardiod warbler MKVI. I do also have an Se 2200T valve mic that I use sometimes.

Amazing job, @Jono! It sounds great!

Thanks micah. :+1:

thanks Jono. I appreciate you taking the time to answer a technical question about recording acoustic instruments and voices and the processing of sounds. I really enjoyed you recording and am glad you shared it with us. Keep up the good word. Looking forward to hearing more!!

I know this problem all too well, in addition to getting overly excited and posting a recording I later wish I had tweaked a little differently. That has happened with practically every recording I’ve ever done. I just can’t wait!! LOL!!

Looking forward to your future releases. :slight_smile:

Adding to the reverb discussion… I have to try to watch my tendencies as well. I like it, but I don’t typically want to hear a track and think “reverb”. And yes, ear fatigue is crazy. Mix it, come back the next day, and I’d be convinced that somebody got in there and changed everything. Just joining everyone in the misery :slight_smile:
