Hi folks,
here is a short cover of a nice song developed by a friend of mine.

I have completely arranged this cover using BiaB, then mixed in Reaper, using its built-in effects. As microphone I have used a Shure SM 58.

This song tells about the "place" where I am (qui dove sto io), which is also the place where lots of us are too. It's a metaphor about the life and its difficulties we all are required to face every day.

The lyrics are in italian :-)

Comments and criticism are more than welcome !

Best Regards,
Sergio.

Hi Sergio, this was an enjoyable listen for me. It is played and produced very nicely though I don't understand Italian lyrics, it is a sweet melody.

Cool song (at least musically, don't understand the words)! It is a bit strange to open with a mellow acoustic and jump in with heavier instruments. I think the heavier sound fits the song, so I would change the intro. Enjoyable listen!! Take care. Greg

Sergio, I like the way you started with the acoustic guitar then morphed into the heavier guitar. Great job on that.

I thought the mix was very good as was your sound sources. The melody was also very good but I also didn't understand the lyrics. BUT that is not a problem as a good song is a good song regardless of language it was sung in and this is a very good song!

Sergio,

Cool sounding song. The tracks seem well mixed in relation to each other. But, there is a "distance" to the overall mix - as if you applied a reverb or delay to final mix. If so, I think it would work without that to give it a bit more "presence"...in-your-face sound that a rock song ought to have.

The performance is nice.

many thanks for the kind comments so far :-)

@Greg,
I did this intentionally as I wanted to add a surprise' flavour to the intro, anyway but I understand your point, and I may change it in a future version.

@Floyd,
I did add reverb, eq and compressor to the vocal tracks, and eq to the drum track as well (the kick was too loud), but I did not have added extra effects to the final mix though. I'll check it again, but I'm quite sure about it.

What do you exactly mean with "distant" ? Does this particular characteristic affect only the vocals or the overall sound ?

Regards,
Sergio.
