お願いナビゲーション COVER PROJECT

The eleventh cover project for SHCB.



For this SHCB cover project:

DRUMS - clem84
BASS - bchoun
LEAD GUITAR - lethaldj13
RHYTHM GUITAR, VOCALS - Spongy
VOCALS - kawaii93

MIXING - pinq
VIDEO EDITING/STORY CONCEPT - kudo_maharizu

BLABLABLA:

HOW THE PROJECT SHALL PROCEED

1. Once the positions in the band have been filled, the recording of the cover shall commence.

2. Following recent points bandied about in the General Discussion thread ( http://www.scandal-heaven.com/t7772-general-discussion ), some aspects of the recording shall be made slightly more flexible but shall be moderated/facilitated as to not make this project go longer than we like it to be.

3. Band persons, apart from the person on vocal duties, shall record their parts in this order DRUMS -> BASS -> RHYTHM GUITAR -> LEAD GUITAR, with each person having 10 days to complete their part.

4. However, if any of the band persons on a musical instrument want to get on to lay down their tracks earlier than their stipulated time for recording, they are free to get on with it.

5. The vocals and backing vocals are best done last, and preferably done with the actual minus one SHCB mix of the cover as a guiding track (which shall be made available).

6. The recorded audio and video tracks are to be provided in the best ever quality you can muster as this helps greatly with the finished cover.

7. Once you are done with your part please upload the respective files into an easily accessable file-sharing site (eg Mediafire) and post the link in this thread below.

8. Those on an instrument should also include a mix of his/her intrument with those that had been recorded prior to his/her take, so as the next person may do the same. eg the rhythm guitarist sends two files - one of just the rhythm guitar, and another of the rhythm guitar mixed with the bass and drums.

FINAL NOTES

Added creative freedom in your playing is encouraged but please keep within the remit of the song. The cover will be done as per the original recording as people to record along the original SCANDAL track. Say that you wanna do a Bonham triplet in the breakbeat where RINA didn't do one, that is fine - but please keep it within the spirit of the song. If it is way out of line, you'll hear from the rest of band haha.

I was thinking about my earlier idea that everyone should record their track at the same time using the original song to play along, and although that would work, it would probably end sounding very close to the original song. Since this is a cover, we should try to give it a bit more personality, like this is our own thing. So the drum --> bass --> rhythm --> lead with vocals in the end method would make sense. Although everyone is still welcome to create their own track now if they choose to, just to test if they mix well with the other tracks or to try to improve/embellish it which would probably improve the final mix.

So I guess I'm up. I know I don't have to but I usually kinda like to produce both audio and video at the same time just to make sure there aren't any discrepancies. I'll get started today.

I'm down to do just the backing vocals if someone else would like a guitar part; if not, this is fine too.

As for the vocals, am I doing Tomomi's part? Or the harmonies?

@Spongy we could split the parts Haruna/Tomomi, and take pinq's suggestion (I was thinking the same thing!) We could share the b/v when we aren't singing.

Have you guys decide which guitar parts you are taking yet, alex/Spongy/bchoun? Grin

I'll be happy to do video editing if at the end of the recording seshes no one wants to do it. So, drop me a line then.

Don't know. I'd prefer to do the rhythm part though.

I just sent a sample to pink to give him an idea of the sound and ask him if there was anything I could change. He gave me a few pointers so I'll make a few modifications and start recording. I've pretty much nailed down what I wanted to do with the track so it's just a matter of recording it.
I wanted this thing to be as good as possible so it's a bit more work than I had anticipated but things are progressing. Should be done by this weekend, if not then definitely by the 24th.

That's cool! Looking forward to hear it once the drums are done.

_________________________

I know everyone's busy but may I give a gentle reminder to all to try check the forum somewhat regular to see the progress of the project. I've seen projects drag on for ages because band members somehow 'disappear' (can't blame 'em esp if the project had dragged on from day one). I would presume an interest in joining the project would automatically make one keep up to date.

In the preferences section of my SH profile, I have the 'always notify me of replies' switched ON. That way, I know what's up. It'll be drag, though, if you're a keen user of the Fun Corner section as you'll be getting loads of email notification.

That's my PSA done Grin

TGIF!

I wanted to run this by Pinq first but he seems to be busy at the moment so I'll just drop this here.

Since my first draft I've made a bunch of little corrections. It's not too late to change something if you guys want me to. Tell me what you think.

Oh, I should add that, since it was decided to do drum --> Bass --> Rythm --> lead --> vocals, I didn't play along the original Scandal track. I played by myself the whole time. I thought this would give it a bit more personality. The tempo is still pretty close to the original track but if you've already recorded your track along the original song, then it won't match my drum track.

I know, I sent a bunch. After my first draft there were many things I wasn't happy with and I wanted this thing to be as good as possible.

I'll get started on the video.

I'm on it! The drum track sounds excellent! Since you didn't record along to the original song I'll play along to the drum track. 

I'm normally a guitar player so I hope I can dial in a good bass tone.

I was thinking... Could the rhythm guitar start with his track as well since the drums are done? Is there a reason I'm not seeing why he would need for the bass to be done first?


edit: I just realized the last time alexmontero08 posted was 2 weeks ago. He voted for this song but I'm not even sure if he knows he made the lineup. Hopefully we'll hear from him soon.

Spongy - you are on rhythm duties, right?
