Listen to the new version|
1) Transpose down into my natural singing range.
2) Simplify arrangement. Listening to the original I noticed the bass line was way less complicated than I was making it.
3) The guitar, instead of going through the Behringer VAmp, direct through the ART Tube MP. I don't really have an amp simulator, but I think that guitar sounds nice direct.
I still am not happy with the vocals, but when I've played out, I sing completely differently, rising to the occasion on when faced with an audience. I have a very specific idea about how to sing stuff, but my ideas are more exacting than my physical instrument seems currently capable of. I probably should use this vocal as a guide, and then ditch it, and not be afraid to punch in a lot more. I know that while there are people who are good on the first take, a lot of professional singers punch in basically every line by the time they're done.
I think live, I can take the outro on guitar and extend it into a kraut-rocky drone piece with guitar freakouts.
