Don't Let Me Down......... Reggae!
« on: August 17, 2014, 11:39:54 AM »
I just thought I'd throw this one up there, since I have no place else for it..... LOL :D

It was my entry into the TTM monthly Open DAW Challenge.

(Hope it's OK to link. If not, well I don't need to say.... :doh:)
The theme, if I remember, was to record a cover, but in a different style to the original.
Years back, I often used to practice by playing through my Beatles song book, but playing everything in a reggae style (well, sometimes Rock Steady, Ska, Blue Beat, or...... ;D)

I used BIAB to generate the drums, bass and organ (lazy bugger that I am), then had to work twice as hard to get them tamed......(that'll teach me)  :doh:
Getting the 5/4 bits to sit right was a real brain mincer........  ??? But, once I'd read Sonar 8's book of destructions, I got it figured out.... LOL

I can't remember if it reached the podium, but I had a hell of a good time putting it down.  8)


Just plug in, turn it up and play until something breaks....

Well that was a good way to start the day.  Nice one, White...
A computer once beat me at chess.  As it turns out, though, it was no match for me at kick boxing...

Thanks for the kind comments, guys, much appreciated........  :beer:

Here's another reggae song I put together for last months TTM ODC. This one came first out of 6, I'm proud to say.  :)

This time I put all of the instruments and vox together.
Completed over about 6 hours on a Sunday afternoon...........  ;)
