Today was day 3 working on my Judas cover, and I was able to salvage it! hooray.
The problem, like i said in my last post, was that the main hook of the song is a super-rhythmic off beat synth line that i was trying to play on various instruments (organ, guitar, wurlitzer) and I was trying to sync it up to my live drumming. My rhythm is decent, but it wasn’t good enough to make this part feel good. So i ditched the live drumming and opted for my casio drum machine instead on my m100. this metronomic grid gave me a more solid foundation to build on as i laid down the tricky off-beat stuff.
i actually ended up adding live drums on top of the casio (after all that…) but i played for about 5 mins, picked the coolest bar, and then chopped it up a bit. then i looped it and layered it on top, and i dug the groove, so that’s the final beat.
i’m going to edit the video tomorrow and maybe over the weekend, but hopefully i’ll have it up by monday.
