Last night I recorded a second stereo drum track to I Fall To Pieces. Next is to use Takes 1 and 2 of the left channel to copy and paste over each other's mistakes, then pick the take I like and make that DrumLMain and bury the other one way down in the mix as DrumLEcho. Then do the same for the right channel.
My cousin Jason, the pro musician, gave me some singing pointers, which I'll share with you now (his emphasis):
"As for the singing - usually this tip improves singers at least 100% - TAKE THE LARGEST BREATHS YOU HAVE EVER TAKEN. sUPPORT THE NOTES WITH YOUR DIAPHRAGM. TAKE BREATHS IN RHYTHM. TAKE GIGANTIC BREATHS COMPARED TO WHAT YOU ARE USED TO. TAKE HUGE BREATHS. AIR. BREATHE! DON'T FORGET TO TAKE HUGE BREATHS."
Any more pointers from you singers out there?
