Q: Can you talk about your recording technique on "For a While"? Thanks!
A: I got confused on my own song titles here...thought you were referencing 'All Along'. 'Fpr a While' is was still using my 4 track Tascam. But my recording technique is basically coming up with the song on guitar then building the rest of the instrumentation around that. This one was recorded about 2yrs ago and I would like to update this one as well. I plan on re-recording with full array of instruments and probably drums. I do like this recording but I feel the song could be more aggressive and up tempo giving it a more modern feel. I plan on re-recording this over the coming weeks. I just re-recorded 'All Along' and am happy with it and will post it here soon. I am an 'effects' guy as far as voice and desire a heavier reverb/chorus type effect on the voice for most of my songs, but I go with what I believe sounds best based on the song style. I like a rich, full sound in my music and try to attain it in my recordings.
