Hi

I just did a cover of my favourite ACDC song, For those about to rock. It took me alot of time, ACDC is not as easy as it may sound. Most work was of course in the drums, I did it with EZ drummer as usual.

Vocals is badly needed, if anyone wants to record vocal over this it would be great. smile.gif

Im the biggest ac/dc fan you'll find. Great intro... sounds amazing... great tone too:DOnly thing, in the verse.. we rock and roll tonight to the guitar fire etc. Maybe you could attack the strings more and harder. Other than that, I'm jealous of this. Haha, Sounds amazing!

Wow, you have NAILED THAT TONE!!!!

Is that the JCM2000?



I agree on the "attacking" comment.

This is all done very well, but I too think that if you put just a bit more "stank" on it it would sound even better.

I think 99% of the time Malcolm and Angus are playing with more attitude than most humans are born with. So its tough to truly capture that feel.

I've noticed that some of my covers I'll record come out a bit on the tame side. And I discovered its because when I recorded it I was sitting down, or I was in a situation where I couldnt play as loud as I wanted...

Thanks guys. smile.gif

Mabye this track would have sounded like this for ACDC if Mutt Lange had not worked on it. Early ACDC albums were poorly produced, and sometimes they didn´t even bother to tune the instruments. Most of the songs were written in the studio, then recorded quickly and be done with it. Highway To Hell was the first album that was proparly produced by the master Mutt Lange. First then they got really famous.

jer: I´m not using my Marshalls, just Guitar Rig 3. You can get a good classic tone with the Citrus amp. But with my SG and JCM2000 I can get a perfect ACDC tone. smile.gif

One thing about GR3 is the standalone and VST plugin sound slightly different. The standalone much more clear, but the same preset sounds a little muddy in the VST version, a little frustrating, I got the perfect ACDC tone with the standalone, but I record with VST so my tone wasn´t as good as it should be. :/

About the picking attack in the verse is probably true. I didn´t practice the song much before recording, I was learning it and recording at the same time. I learned the bass line and then recorded it and then the guitars and so on, i just learned the solos this morning, and I think I spent about 2 hours on those solos, recording and learning, they are not 100% accurate, but pretty close. smile.gif Mabye I just record the rythm guitars again, thanks for the tips guys. smile.gif

One other thing, I think it´s a must to get a cool Cannon sound effect, to add in the mix, I try to see what I can do about that. ACDC recorded a real cannon for the track. I could record a sound from a shotgun, It will have to do. hahaha.

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Well, I'll let you decide that, but I think I'll be able to do it some justice smile.gif
Yeah sure, I'll send you a vocal only file as well smile.gif
