I did some more musical mucking around last night and today and recorded this! I did the guitar first, then bass, and finally drums, and it was a lot easier to fit the drums to the guitar tracks first than the other way around. I made more use of the guitar pedals this time, I had nearly everything on! Reverb and analog delay as always, but I also had the SD-1 Super Overdrive on and feeding into the DS-1W Distortion, plus the flanger in front of everything, and I quite like how it came out. I did the same thing as last time with the scooped mids, partially because I love the tone but also because I haven't figured out the best settings for a good crunchy tone yet.
It's funny how I can mostly play drums along to the track fine, but as soon as it comes to actually RECORDING I keep overthinking things and being overly nervous about fucking it up, and end up not doing nearly as many fills as I mean to. This was my first time recording a "skip note" (the extra snare hit right before the kick drum on beat 3) and I missed a bunch of those, as well a lot of the open hi-hat hits right at the end of the bar too.
(Yes, this is still using basically the same handful of notes that my last song did, in much the same progression. 😛)
