Been wanting to do this cover for a long time and decided now was the time but man, I hit roadblocks almost every step of the way. Got the bass, drums and rhythm down fine for it. Recorded the lead part with my Gibson LPJ but for some reason when I hit the higher notes they almost rang out in a micro phonic kind of way (is that even a word?). I did drop the guitar a while ago so maybe I need to adjust the pickup height or something. Anyway I re recorded it all with my Epiphone Les Paul 1960's Tribute Plus and although it sounds great I noticed on the 2nd and 3rd fret on the high E it rang out in a really weird way, the guitar had been stored away for a while so maybe needs a truss rod adjustment. But anyway, I finally recorded and filmed it all and then hit roadblock after roadblock with the editing.
I had such a struggle lining the video up with the audio, I always seemed to be 1 or 2 frames out but I eventually got it sitting right.
I filmed at night which makes using a green screen harder as I don't have studio lighting.
Recorded my green screen footage and it looked grainy and awful and really ruined the video. So I spent 6 hours working on the finer details of the screen footage, re-recording the lot and getting it just right, or as right as I could get. Used Fraps to record the gameplay but everytime I put it into Vegas it crashed the program and I had to end up saving after every click so I didn't lose my work. So yes, the footage behind me took 6 hours to do. Don't say I don't love you guys ;)
Anyway enough rambling. This cover probably took 30+ hours to do but every second was worth it because I love it and I hope you guys do too!
