Thinking of starting to take Youtube more seriously and doing one-take/one-shot vocal covers of random songs with video. It's my attempt to kind of get the studio crap out the picture and put myself in a situation where I'm forced to be a bit more consistent. In everything I do I try to do long takes, I don't like the line by line approach, it's too clinical sounding and people lean on it too much. A vast majority of what I record is 2-3 full takes comped using best parts of each. Still, despite my way of trying to keep things a bit more real, I find that sometimes I get lazy and patch in a bunch of stuff later. Which is fine and basically status quo for studio, but since I no longer play live shows it has also made me more forgiving of bad form, and I don't like the idea of relying on studio magic too much. So basically I figured I'd take it to the next level, and this one-take/one-shot thing forces me to focus more on voice control and if I fuck up bad I have to start the whole video over or accept it on the interweb. We'll see if it pans out. I don't know much about creating videos and I don't own a decent camera yet. I did a one-take recording of Opeth - Masters Apprentices earlier but it's just audio obviously. It went fairly well considering I have not tried to sing it since I first covered it and posted on the "How to growl" thread like 9 years ago. Also my clean voice is so rusty it's embarassing. But that's the point. It forces me to do better or live with the results.
