Am I Pretty Fly Or What?


Recommended Posts

I came across this while recording some stuff. Its Offsprings "Pretty Fly For A White Guy". My son and I did this about 6 months ago when I first got my mixer and recording set up. The sound is not the greatest, but we had a blast doing it. We were out of sync many times, during the song. But like I said it was all for fun.

hehehe

 

i don't know what to say. besides the song itself being so stupid, it makes my skin craw, (i feel like i can say that because you didn't write the song) the playing here is pretty weak. (you know that, though) THis WASn't recorded to a click; the drums are really, really loose. whatever, though...you said it was just for fun...

 

....i'm actually posting b/c you brought up a good exercise, albeit seemingly inadvertantly. re-recording an already-popular tune is a GREAT way to get your recording chops together and trying to get the sound of the song in its original form is actually a very realistic venture with today's DAWs. as far as what you did, the playing gets in the way, but your sounds are really nice; especially that guitar sound. (even though you said they weren't)

 

do you have any other recordings? i'm curious.

 

 

ps- how old's your son? mine's five now and i'm DREAMING that he'll be into playing as a teen so we can jam. that has to be awesome. :)

Yea Ive got a few Ive posted before. Son is 18 and has been playing for a little over a year now. He has gotten alot better than on this song. I built my studio 6 months ago and broke my wrist and tore ligament during the same time frame. I had surgery 2 months ago to fix the problems and just last week was taken out of the brace I wore for 6 months. This is a redo of Alice Cooper "Hello Hurray" and the other is just a little jam I recorded to try and loosen up my wrist. So Im still new to the whole recording process but Im learning everyday. Now that I have been cleared by the Doc to use my wrist I will do alot more. These tracks are alot better than the one above. I posted it because it is so stupid. On these tracks I try and sing and Im playing all instruments (son wasnt around to do drums).
