    We just got this recorded today :)

    Its crappy, throught one mic, but I'd like opinions :)

    3 man band. Singer/Guitarist, myself on Bass, and drummer.

    Thx :) Also, hows the tone? Even if you cant hear it too well?

    Oh well, here are two clips, enjoy.


    PS - Sry if this is the wrong forum, not too sure where this would go.
  2. Hi there! I'm listening to 'Home' as I write this, very cool!!

    Wiseman is just dowbloading.. Oh.. Done! Gotta lurb' cable :)

    Wiseman is even cooler! A bit clipped, but sounds like a good song!

    Awesome. :)

    Wrong forum too! Aren't you special? :p

    i like wiseman.
    just keep practicing!
    it sounds good. but the gutiar just doesn't sound right. maybe it is just me tho'.
    as long as your having fun!!

  6. Haven't listened yet, but i have a question. Noobai and Moparpunk281... you guys aren't from *gasp* TC *gasp* are you?

    Haha, i used to post there sometimes (yes, I admit it :eek: ), but a friend led me to this forum, which is infinately more informative and useful, and is not full of testosterone fueled player out to rip on you/everything you own. Most complaints on here are carefully explained, not just misguided anger.

    I'm rambling, I know, but that's just my 2 cents...

    i haven't been there since i found this place. thank god for talkbass!!!! i go there and look just to see what is there. i can't belive that i was in that.

  8. I think the guitar on "Home" is a little out of tune, but otherwise, GREAT SONG.
  9. Eh heh heh heh.... I'm still a mod there. Real interesting discussion going on right now about how great the Nikki Sixx bass is.
  10. hehehe

    ya. that was what i was thinking about the songs. just a little out of tune.
    download. n-track studio.
    and you can do some multi track recording.
    it won't be great, but it might turn out better than what you have.
    i recorded with on mic. it sounded alright. but now my band is actually recording.

    that bass sucks!
    way over priced

  12. try positioning the mics differently.
  13. dude, I have to say...... I LOVE Wiseman! It's awesome!!

    not that it really needs. maybe some distortion during the chorus. it sounds that is what coming up but it never does. i don't know just my opinion.
    id let you hear my bands stuff that i told you about, but it doesn't sound to good.
    well maybe hold on.

    wow, didnt expect such great responses. thx a ton guys!

    any comment on the bass palying? can you even HEAR it? :p

    Guitarist/Singer is 15, Im 15, Drummer is just 17.

    Ive been playing with the guitarist since I picked up the bass, a bit over a year now, we've only played with the drummer like 4 times though.

    bump :)

    drums hurt my speakers... :(

    i must say i was pretty impressed... wiseman is a really good song, great hook!!! you guys have some real potential. i could hear the bass (somewhat) and you kept pretty good time but i'd try to mix it up a little more than just the root notes. it has kind of a spin doctors/ska kind of feel to it. try some walking lines or something. the drummer seems off a tad, no matter though, keep at it!!! :D

    Cool songs. I really like Wiseman.

    See if you can get that mic a bit fuirther away, or turn down the input gain (if you can).

    Quite good. I like your bands sound. I'm suprised that your singer is 15, he doesn't sing like a little punk ass 15 year old... :p

    Pretty good, keep it up man :)

    Sounds good. You guys should definatly get some more mics if you can afford it, at least for the drums, it would help alot.
