2020 Queen Collaboration has begun:

Guitar - Kill Reaper

Bass - Dumpster Diver

Vocal - JFK

Synthesizer - Judy

Drums - This could be you.

Shoot, I forgot about this. I need to practice and figure out how I’m going to record it. I’ll probably dub it on cassette. If I get into it I might want to share vocals.

Also, it’s a magical Outer space harp, not a synthesizer :)

Also-also, how do we summon the ghost of JFK?

I should honestly Just go ahead and get the drums and bass done in the next couple days and mail a tape to the next person who will have to digitize it themselves once again, would that work? I will have to practice a little though honestly I've never learned this tune, there's a guy playing the guitar for it on youtube but I honestly think he's playing a few riffs differently than how I am sure Buzz is playing it.

grim sounds like he's got it right though.

IF it gets put on Cassette it will be lo-fi, I'll try to order an Analog-Digital interface maybe next month if this can wait?

If there's a rush on it (and I think I work better with a deadline)

then I can actually create a 4-track cassette version of this and master a tape with my bass and (or) Drum track overdrubs and physically mail a "Master" Cassette or Reel to whoever needs to add more tape tracks to it if that might work? at the very least I have to either take the WAV. or MP3 file itself and transfer it to tape, and then it has to get re-digitized, this will greatly compress and bottleneck the frequency response. If I burn the Track on CD then I can at least get a better sounding 2nd generation 4-track tape started (or worse just going out through the headphone jack of the computer which is a 3.5mm Jack) which is high speed compared to standard cassette playback speed so it will not be unacceptably lossy.

I could Do the bass and drums that way and then it would be mixed down onto a tape and If one of you has a 4-track cassette I'll just send you the actual 4-track tape you can mix and digitize and get a lot better quality out of it, I'm really stuck with Cassettes and Reels for now, let me know if that's ok or how ever else we can make this work for everyone.


again, I can produce a 7.5 IPS reel or a high speed 4-track cassette which is also playing 7.5 IPS but much smaller track size physically than quarter inch tape (or just a plain old normal stereo Cassette mix down)

Let me know what you think will work for best results possible.

I'm just playing bass along to a live version of Queen with the BB guys, so far I'm picking it up pretty quick..pretty much have it actually on bass.. but these are still very clever riffs man.  8) I can see why they like to play it live still.

The drums are another story but I'll see If I can do a drum track that doesn't sound like a fart in a tin can compared to the Drummer from the melvins...don't quit your day job or anything.  :buzz:

Alright my cover is done and is uploading as we speak!  A few notes:

1. I'm getting into the swing of recording again and forgot where all of my equipment is.  This also means the acoustics aren't really top notch.  :lol:  I had to use the cheapest, shittiest earbuds and often had to sing a little quieter than normal to actually hear myself and not get out of sync.

2.  I've been super busy this week and only had time for one take that I through together in like an hour.

3.  I still think it turned out pretty good all things considered.  Thanks for reminding me how much fun singing and creating can be!  I hope you all enjoy.   8)

PS I forgot we also covered The Bit at one point during our GG Allin tribute!  I mostly remember people begging us not to shit on the stage.  I also remember these tough "dudebro" metalheads getting scared shitless of of singer whenever he'd go into the crowd.  One dude pulled a knife on him during the set! :lol: :lol: :lol:  Stay tuned and we cover The fucking COWS Hitting the Wall after that!   8)

I had some cheapo $40 USB mic.  I didn't do the acoustics well at all either lol I'm trying to get back into the swing of things cause it's been like 2 years since I've recorded anything.  If you remember on the other thread my good headphones went out on the right cable so I had to sing at like half volume so I could even hear the track.

Thanks though!  It's been fun.   8)

it was a good performance but would you like some mixing help? the entire thing sounds underwater and is way below the volume of other contributors to the project.

Absolutely!  The whole thing was a bit rushed and I'm getting back into the swing of things.  I felt like I'd sing louder too if I had remembered how to record properly.  Thanks for the help!

i just need the isolated vocal track, preferably in WAV format. dropbox, google drive, we transfer, private yt or soundcloud track. something like that.

Oh it was so rushed out I may have deleted it  #-o :lol:

It's a decent place holder for now I suppose.  I'll do better in the future when I have more time!!!
