Attached File  canon_rock.mp3 ( 3.11MB ) Number of downloads: 372




hey guys! i'm sure a lot of yall are familiar with the youtube popular canon rock and like a lot of other people i've decided to do my own version. i've played this song for my school's talen shows but now i've finaly gotten it recorded. and i just want to apologize now for the phaser effect. when i was recording it it did'nt sound as much of a prolblem as it did in the final recording. the song was mostly improvised so i could'nt really do a retake. a few mistakes here and there and since i rendered it as an mp3 you can now barely hear it lol. oh well i wish i was as good at the whole recording that than i am at guitar. if you can hear it leave whatever feedback you can. smile.gif

Mate you can play for real!! That's realy good.

Sometimes it just sounds a bit diffrent then the normal, not melody wise, but a bit to fast or something like that.

thanks a lot for the feedback i really appreciate it. biggrin.gif as far as the rushing part goes there's an explanation for it. when i had played the song for my schools talent show all acts had to be under 4 minutes and the original song is like 5 and a half minutes so i had to edit it and speed up the bpm in order to get it under 4 minutes, plus i never really liked playing it slow anyway. i tried to record another take but even when it sounded like it was perfect when i played it back the recording of me was always seemed to be a little out of sync with the backing track and i could'nt figure out why. but i'm gonna get the original un-edited backing and make another recording and this time without the phazer wink.gif to see if it sounds any better at a slower bpm and with all the original parts to the song since i had to edit out most of it for the sake of time.

Sounds like it may have been a latency issue. Just recently was told how to adjust the tracks to it myself. What recording program do you use?

If you go into the Options tab and un-check "enable snapping", you will be able to move the tracks freely. Smells here at GMC let me in on this a few days ago. With the snapping checked you can't . Try this and bet you can put it in perfect time with your backing.

Good luck,
Steve

hmm i did the snapping thing but they still wont match up. its like a delay in the recording but i havent done anything to make it do so. i hit record and play along with the track as usual but when i hit stop and go back to hear it my recorded part is just behind and no matter where i move it it does'nt fit it. i'm very confused because this just started happening for no reason.

most easy-fied version of the song I have heard. you left out every single difficult element, replaced it with something simple. You even left out a full minute of the song.

Play is ok, but nothing special. More backing track than anything else. I listened closely to try to hear your technique. Just did not hear a lot Really hard to hear anything with the backing masking your rhythm, accenting, play. I pretty much assume when guys do that, they are covering something up. If I do anything special, I certainly don't want some backing track drowning me out.
