cover songs

Live in the studio performance via streaming

Due to the fact that we cannot perform live at the moment we decided to do a live stream from my studio. We performed our CCR Tribute show and I also recorded the live tracks in the DAW. Guitar was played direct via the Kemper and the Bass was played via the Line 6 Helix.

We setup four cameras (vocals, bass, guitar, drums) and filmed the performance.

I edited the video and put the audio together. It was very successful and went down extremely well.

This is our version of one of the tracks – Suzie Q.

Covers - or copies for tracks. How do you do yours?

I produce lots of copies of songs mainly for theatrical or stage type shows. Over the years I have a pretty standard workflow, but while doing one today, I wondered if others do it my way or have their own system that might be better?

I always use the original song as a template. I tend to do the trickier bits in short chunks. So playing along with the real thing is pretty critical.

So here is how I tend to do mine - Ideas like to hear other people's differences.

Mic for home recording covers - different genres

Hey guys, I need a mic for my home studio as I'm starting recording covers - different genres (pop, rock, metal, country, jazz).

I've been researching and two mics are my Top 2 choices - MXL v67 and sE X1.

I already own SM57 and have an idea of using both SM57 and that new mic I buy for recording covers.

In that sense, I would buy complementary mic - they say sE X1 is more for rock/metal, higher pitch, screaming and v67 a more warmer mid-section pop player.

What are the posting rules for covers?

I'm pretty new to recording, and I am not a very good or inspired writer, so I find myself doing a lot of covers of songs I like so that I can learn more about the process, and learn more about certain musical techniques, and get inside the heads of artists that are gods to me. So that is the early phase of my journey to become good at recording and become a better musician.

Question about cover songs

Im starting a band and right now we have learned a few cover from The White Stripes, The Kinks and Chuck Berry. Were most likely to be doing a CD this winter that we might sell for like $5 or something. The CD would have mostly our own songs and a few covers. But i wondering if we can do covers on a CD. Does anyone know if we have to talk to someone about it or can we just record the songs.

Royalties for free downloads of cover songs

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with posting free downloads of demos on their websites that are cover songs.

My group is working on a demo CD of jazz and latin standards. Since we will not be selling this particular CD, only giving it away as a sample of us - what are the copyright issues?

Do we have the right to give away our recordings of these songs on the Internet, and what are the legal ramifications?

Any help would be greatly appreciated from an experienced soul
