26 Ric12string 2 weeks ago Dave, I just listened to it again. Am I correct that the lead vocals were double-tracked? What vocal effects were used? Was your vocal compressed?Your lead guitarist is a good player. He gets interesting tones, almost a pinched note sound at times. If I were in your band, I would challenge him to create lead parts that were more singable, if you know what I mean. I think that some of the most memorable lead parts from iconic rock songs have lead breaks that you can actually sing as you listen to it. I like those melodic lead parts and find myself always trying to play lead in that style, rather than just regurgitating licks that I may have learned along the way. With the luxury of time, a lead guitarist can simply sit down and craft the lead part to carry a melody. Think of a song like, "Maybe I'm Amazed." You can sing back every note in that break, most likely. I think that that adds to the strength of a song.Again, good job on this one.
