Hi

Here´s another pieace i have covered, and a big one I might add. It´s a whole lot of a song, the most complex Zeppelin song in my oppinion. I´ve been working on it the last few days, learning it and recording. Most tracks are double tracked (played twice)and most leads harmonized. Mixing is hard because there so many tracks and so much going on. I played everything on it but the drums of course, I found a midi drum file and imported it and used EZ drummer to play it, but I edited quite a bit. Playing wise the song is quite a challange, everything has to fit perfectly and there are many parts to learn, also there are both tempo and timing changes going on.

Tell me what you think, is the mixing ok? smile.gif

"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

Wonderful cover. The only thing I can complain about is the drums. They sound quite dead and mechanic, but that's expected when you cover a Led Zeppelin song. smile.gif

Thanks guys. smile.gif

I think the drums sound as good as it gets, you can´t beat Bonham with a drum program. I found the midi file on the internet, I wouldn´t even try to map it myself. :/

I´ve uploaded a better mix, I tried to make the drums sound a little tighter and tweeked the solos and fills a little bit. And yes it´s a nightmare to mix, the project is about 20 tracks (8 drum tracks included), but a good practice and it´s fun. smile.gif
