Make Your Overdubs FEEL Like Live Tracks

By edison

When recording a part solo, play like the band and crowd are there. If you find yourself laying a track on your own, just before laying the track, get someone to play drums or set up some loudspeakers to rehearse the part against the other elements of the band at the volume levels the band plays. Memorize how hard you are hitting the instrument and how your arms and hands feel playing at that intensity. That’s how the track must be played to sound right in the mix. The intensity and strength exerted on the instrument will affect intonation, attack, sustain and overall feel, and all that changes when other musicians are playing with you, so you have to replicate that same intensity when recording an individual track that later will be mixed with the band.
