I keep redoing the vocals, and it's helping, but more practice is still in order.
I brought the strings back. The decidedly-non-guitar sound helps keep it interesting. Comments?
Notice the guitar fills and extra rhythms in the background. The song was feeling a little plain (and predictable) without them. I'm particularly happy with the texture added by the single-note guitar rhythm in the left channel under the chorus.
This is all in the new .mp3 Alpha20070722c.mp3.
You can always help out by downloading the mp3 and recording yourself singing or playing your instrument while listening to the mp3 through your headphones. You can email me at msongmsong__AT__gmail.com
Thanks for listening!
