Today I’m going to be recording Guitar on audio recorder software .
I often compose jingles or music to picture for advertising companies. I was commissioned the other day to compose a jingle for a new advertisement for TV . The briefing was to come up with something that has a Motown feel to it , something that sounds kinda RnB from the late 50s or 60s . So after I programmed the drums and Bass guitar on my audio recorder software it was time to lay down a little guitar.
Recording guitar is an area where you cant get away with fake sequenced guitar. especially for this style . So I called in a professional session guitarist by the name of Antonio Orrico . He is a real pro. Most of the time he does everything first time in one take in like 5 minutes and then we talk about music for 2 hours while we drink cappuccino . He has two brilliant websites for learning how to play guitar .
Once we had finished recording the guitar it was time for some vocals. So I hired another true professional by the name of Lungelo . He is a very talented artist with a great soulful voice which is perfect for my pseudo Motown track . Lungelo did a wonderful job on the vocals. He even did his own harmonies and backing vocals .
If you can guess what famous Motown song our final song is based on and put your answer in the comments then you might win FREE access to my advanced course that I’m working on called ” Advanced Music Production ” .
Thanks to Antonio Orrico , Lungelo & Thabang for being involved in this project.
