Just working on a new tune right now, and I just recorded this sloppy version this evening of Peter Gabriel's San Jacinto
(I hope he won't listen to it)
Critics obviously welcome upon my playing (but, even more important to me, upon the overall ambience I tried to put on) but please remember that :
- this is a very personal version of that classic tune, so don't expect to be the exact replica of Peter's : I added some intro, cut some parts, etc, etc... you get the idea ;
- this is a really sloppy version, the groove is sometimes (well, pretty often) "floating" and there're a lot of mistakes but I didn't want to delete them (well, this record is just a work in progress)
- I just added a really basic drum groove, so don't expect any drum break
(and don't expect any solo from me too on that one)
- and I suspect that a cable or a power supply began to fail during the recording process, hence a hiss appearing at some points...
I may post in some days a new version that will consider all your advices, so be productive!
For your information, all was played in real time. I looped some notes and noises first, that I layered without any sense of time, than reversed the loop and began the record of the tune. So you won't hear me record the different layers.
For that tune, I used my preamp, a basic Boss SD-2 for the crappy distorted sound (I love that one), some filtering for the ambient loops, TC Electronic Hall of Fame reverb and Strymon Timeline for loops and delays (I do love that one too).
