Rough mix of Bon Jovi – Dry County

So, apparently when it rains it pours. I was originally going to just do this track as a test to see if I could record multitrack while I had ivory up, to see if I could use ivory instead of my keyboard’s internal TG in order to get my keyboard’s internal drum machine on a different stereo pair so I could record me and mike’s musical stylings in *true* multitrack

I decided to do “Dry County”, since Gayle had mentioned she liked my version better than Bon Jovi’s

But I couldn’t do it without blowing take after take. So I decided to cheat a little and record the piano part and drums first, and then the vocals.

And, once you get started doing studio tricks, it’s hard to stop. Before I knew it I had a cello, a voilin, two different synthesizers, some filler drums, four vocal tracks, and it was starting to sound awfully good to me.

So I’m kicking it over to bunne for remixing – since he is much more in tune with mixdown than I am – but I thought I would share the rough track with my fans out there.

Here it is:

The *very* astute will notice the lyrics are not quite the same as the original. Bonus points to whoever comments on the difference first. (Except for Gayle, since she already knows because I told her about the change when I was dithering over whether to make it or not)

    I should also mention that I hope Mike Mesford will be adding some guitar tracks to this for the final cut.

    You should alert me to such posts, so I don’t just have to find them by doing an ego-centric name search. 🙂
