I've been reading articles and tinkering with sound editing software for a little bit. I'm still trying to compensate for my studio room and the mic's not sounding like they are tinny. I have expensive condenser microphones, but they always are trebel'd out... frustrating.

Anyway, I took a shot at a Nickleback song, "Feelin Way Too Damn Good" which is a great song and easy to play. I tried using "track doubling" to bring out the vocals, while keeping the guitar track to a very basic single track to keep the song on pace. It was recorded in one take. The vocals are done in 4 takes, and the bass in 1.

There is a harmony guitar that plays some fills and basic strumming chords as well.

All instruments done by me. I omitted any percussion track to let the bass and melody guitar keep the beat.

Check it out, let me know what you think:



For the Guitar chords, I'll make note that I changed the tuning to Dropped C# instead of Dropped D to keep it in my vocal range.

I also changed the melody of:


C#-|---------------
A#-|---------------
F#-|---------------
C#-|-0---0---0---0-
G#-|-9---9---10--10
C#-|-0---10--9---8-


to


C#-|---------3---3-
A#-|-3---3---3---3-
F#-|-2---2---0---0-
C#-|-0-------------
G#-|-----3---2---1-
C#-|---------------
