Topic: A GOOD HARD RIDE

This is a song I have been working on for a week or so composing lyrics,music and arranging then came the recording,video taping and many hours of editing video and music.The videos were shot with my Fugi HD camera and the music was recorded on my Boss BR-8 all the mixing was performed in the BR-8 (panning,EQ's and levels) and rendered as a MP3 in Audacity on my laptop.The video was a series of short timed videos and edited 1st in movie maker to better adjust the start and stop of each one to fill out the length of the audio then came the fun part.
I used my TraKaX pro to acheve the Picture in Picture effects which is VERY time consuming especially alignment crossfades it was a labor of love and it picked me up after watching the thumping my Packers suffered so.... without further ado A Good Hard Ride smile

Well done sir. Great way to start my work day.

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

Re: A GOOD HARD RIDE

Hey Russ - Great song, great performance(s) and fantastic job on the mix and video. I really liked how your video shared bits of the process of what goes into putting together a polished piece of music.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Thank you Roger I have another one swirlling around in my head at least the title and an idea of the tempo all I can say is its going to be a fast and furious tempo and some interesting chord sequences and breaks smile
