      Yeah! An arrangement!!!!

      I thought it got a hair cluttered at times, but the playing is KILLER!!!!


      Funny how we both went whole-tone at about the same part through the backing

          i slapped around a telecaster and recorded a couple of passes just for fun

          it starts out in the spirit of being a hair cluttered but it does come together a bit toward the end

          As a human being, you come with the whole range of inner possibilities
          from the deepest hell to the highest states.

          It is up to you which one you choose to explore
          .

          Despite my best intentions, I ended up sounding a bit like "JBMashup".

          I was shootin' for spank, but I ended up with wank.

            Man... your tenor tone just KILLS me!!!! Here it and your note choice and phrasing make me think of Mr. Magic - era Grover. Another stellar take, this one might be my favorite!!!!

            Yea I thought is was nice and melodic too. I really like the recorded sound of the horn.

          What's your mic and signal chain, if you don't mind me asking?

            It's nothing fancy. The mic is an Apex 460 tube-condenser microphone. I run it through my Yamaha PSR-3000 keyboard as a pre amp, and I record using Reaper and an Maudio Delta 66 interface. All I do to the horn is add reverb. The keyboard has an on board compressor which is usually on, too. I know the keyboard isn't the best for a pre amp, but the mic is always hooked up to it as I use it for practicing and recording vocals, too.I'm just too lazy to unhook it and run it through my mixer.

              Those Apex 460s are GREAT mics! I have an Avantone CV-12, which is essentially the same mic with fancier shell.

                For the money I have invested in it, I am very happy with my 460. I bought it as part of a mic kit a few years back, on the advice of a sound-man friend.
