I just finished listening to the lead vocals I recorded with Steve Rachid today. It sounds pretty good! I hear a bunch of tiny imperfections, but I think anyone else will just hear me singing. I am always a tough critic of myself; I know it – I’ll let it go.
Going into the session I imagined the scenes in various movies where the producer has the singer sing one line over and over and over until the singer gets it just right.
Today’s session was nothing like that. Steve had done some mixing of all the other tracks before I got there. Then, basically, I just sang with the band three times, and minimally using the magic of
the software to edit to the best stuff, we ended up with the lovely track that is my lead vocal. BTW: no Autotune! It’s all me!
