Hey guys!
Finally here with fixes to "My Friend John".
Changes to guitar - one of the key riffs was inaccurate.
Changes to bass - was missing notes and had an inaccurate riff.
Changes to drums - had initially missed a few snares paired with a kick and crash.
Changes to vocals - note placement heavily redone, and changes to length on some tubes.

"If you were a shape... what shape would you be?"

Dude. Remember how I just said we have little in common to team up on? I am a massive Fratellis fan! MASSIVE! My day is made. No; my week!


The fifth album is coming out in the next couple of months! Ugh. Every album is so wonderful. So many songs I'd want to have in my library... we'll have to collaborate on at least one! I saw them live a few years ago as Eyes Wide Tongue Tied came out. They opened with Me and the Devil and it was an absolute riot. Everybody was jumping and screaming the chorus. The place exploded at 3:28. It was... religious.


Why is this called v2? I know for a god damn fact it wasn't in the database before today. >:(

P.S. I have a Fratellis song planned as well... *whistles*




...the whistling is your clue...

Oh heck yeah, we've been overdue for more Fratellis customs. Can't wait to give this a play!

Just played this on guitar and bass. Thoughts:


Bass: I got cocky and thought I had an FC within my grasp... then that little hammer-on section came. Oh well, practice makes better. Well done. Now I wanna play bass while I sing harmonies.


Guitar: Just as good as bass. That is to say, of absolute quality.


Vocals: I didn't bother since they're unpitched, but if you need help getting all three vocal parts perfected once you've given pitching them a shot, hit me up. The scrub tool is your best friend, and you can (almost) never have enough slides. Oh, and when in doubt, shorter tubes are better than longer.


Oh, one last thing! In the next version, you should put the count-in after the initial dialogue (which I totally think should be unpitched vocals using the easy-mode carrot before the count-in, BTW! :D There's a first time for everything). "If you were a shape..." "Yeah?" "What shape would you be?" 1, 2, 3, 4, ROCK! I realize it would take a tiny bit of audio editing, but that ain't no thang.

Holy crap! Loving the feedback, Atruejedi! And thanks so much for the comments, FancySkunk and EcoFreak!



Ooh I'm very excited for what you have planned! :D

Beyond honored, seriously, thank you!


Thank you for the vocal tips, they're insanely helpful! As for placing the count-in after that initial exchange, I think that's an excellent idea and will do just that! Haha, ain't no thang at all. And thank you for offering to check pitches! I'll absolutely hit you up once I feel confident with them!
