Glad I Saw You Tonight org/PSRE403/Big Baby Taylor/SP1/Cl1/MX5

Post by The Cracks » Tue Oct 24, 2017 6:37 pm

This is another quickie production. That's about all I have in me these days.

I was listening to Tom Petty on Youtube and I was so glad I saw him on tour this past summer. It was a great performance and little did anyone know...

Anyway, that idea of "so glad I saw you tonight" was a good title (rarely do I write a song off a title) so I went to my piano and banged out some simple chords on my PSRE403 keyboard and found a rough melody. Once the recording began I started getting a bit too ambitious and added strings and choir and it all turned to a muddy mix, so I stripped it back down to this simple production.

Here are the particulars:

PSRE403 - piano and violin into Cl1 interface into Mixcraft 5.
Big Baby Taylor guitar - played into SP1 mic into Cl1 interface into Mixcraft 5.
Vocals - SP1 mic, into Cl1 interface into Mixcraft 5.
Mixed in Mixcraft 5

Anyway, here is (it's on soundclick now, not bandcamp):

Glad I Saw You Tonight

Thanks for any listens and comments.

Beautifully recorded. The piano and your voice are very clear. The faint strings in the background are a nice touch. Overall a very nice song. I'm envious of being able to put a song together that quickly.

It doesn't need any embellishment it's perfect as it is.

Simple and powerful, a little masterclass in economy.

Nice work Sean.

Cheers

Dick

I agree that this tune sounds fine on its own and to add anymore than what you have here would be overproducing it. There's beauty in simplicity.

:^:

RIP Tom Petty. He was a great artist on so many levels. :(

I like it. You kinda sound like Tom Petty too! I have also enjoyed using the piano w/strings setting on my Yamaha keyboard. Embellishment made easy! :^: :music:
