Ok so I just found out some weird stuff. When I play a song through my headphones, I can move around the wire to make it so that one part can't connect. When I do this the bass is reduced, I can only hear the drum fortees, and I can hear the rythem guitar and lower harmonic parts better. I can also hear backup vocals very clearly. Vocals you'd never hear during the song unless you had super sonic ears.

Has any body tried this? I'm probably just figuring out what everybody already knows but hey it's pretty cool.

It makes you wonder why they bother in the studio to layer everything so much. I know it fills the sound up but people never notice the amount of effort is put into these things.

If you listen to the Beatles at all, listen to some of them while doing that, it's pretty sweet.

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

So basically, the song is split in two seeing as it's stereo rather than mono - one guitar/vocals in one ear etc. and you cut the connection to one, essentially only hearing one half of the track.

i actually dont. because it gets annoying if i hear the voice on side and it irritates my ears. its cool if bands split something into stereo once in a while (like a duet in a solo or vocals).

It's something you wouldn't notice unless it wasn't there. If it was just guitar, bass, drums, and one vocal track, you'd sit and listen to it going, "Something about this song is wrong."

Or maybe you'd like how raw it sounded. It depends. But for the average listener, it's more of a subliminal thing, I'd say.
