    I started covering a Nevermore tune for fun today and thought it would be a cool idea to not only just do the guitars and what not but turn it into a proper cover and promote it via my project.

    So...is there any vocalists who would be willing to put down some vocals on it?

    I also must say, I recorded the song in standard 7 string tuning, mainly due to the guitar not being happy at Bb, plus it sounds a little different :)

    Oh yeah, I think im just going to leave it double tracked but I put fresh strings on the guitar and bass before tracking so once ive got it finished im putting it all out on the forum as a new "DI reamping thing", like the Rose of Sharyn DI's....but Nevermore with backing track etc. Reamping rhythm guitars & bass for it tomorrow yay!

    So yeah, don't have to be a Warrel copy at all, but still somebody with melody :Smokedev:

    Peace!

    Depending on the song, I'd probably give it a go in about 2 weeks.
    Need to finish some urgent school stuff first.

    Yeah should be pretty interesting! I'll drop the rough track on here today sometime and you can have a play about....the "preferred" one will be on the "finished" version of which i'll be making a little YT video for, with credits of course :)

    Then ill post all the DI's/backing for everybody to fool with.

    Would love to give it a go since I always find warrel's timbre and pitch close to mine, and I don't know if I could sing it well.

    Ive added the rough track to the OP for the vocal tests, only missing part of the solo as I still need to get that bit down :tickled:

    I prefer your Guitar tones over ANYONE elses on this forum (apart from the forums namesake, maybe:)). They sound fantastic. The attack is so crisp. The tight playing is where it all starts from I guess. If you tamed the flub on some of the palm-mutes they would be perfect. Nice job dude. :worship:

    Care to share any details, amp/cab/mic/EQ? I don't want to derail your thread too much, sorry.

    Wow thanks man, im abit taken aback! :tickled:

    The clip at the top is just X30 amp sim btw if your referring to that? Just what I use to monitor before I give it the real amp treatment :Shedevil:

    Cheers Kev!

    Yeah I did try and put the guitar down to Bb but it needed a total overhaul to do so, so I went to my regular tuning and it was fine so I stuck with that. I think we are all so used to the original version so this sounds a bit different, but at the end of the day the sole purpose of doing this was to give you guys some new tracks to play about with :)

    It shouldn't be any problem to pitch shift the whole song half a step with a good pitchshifter plugin, i don't care what tuning it is. See if i can lay down the track this week :)

    Damn, it sounds brilliant for an amp sim. Can't wait to hear the real amp version. I guess it is 99% the playing then.

    I edited my original post after you quoted it with my spelling mistakes, etc... :lol:
