Fucking Fucking
I took the end of the night and recorded the song I just wrote. I put in more effort than I normally do with demos. I programmed the drums from scratch, which I hate doing, and I'm not all that great at. I recorded two rhythm guitar tracks, a fills track, live bass, a solo, and some synth frills. It's still an amateur home recording made in my bedroom though.

But it's the happiest angry song I've written. Or is it the angriest happy song? I dunno… It's in a bouncy major key but lyrically pretty bitter.

Yes, delightfully bitter. Good job. How'd you do the backups?

The backing vocals in the chorus? They are an exact copy of the main chorus vocals, just heavily processed.

I copied the main vocals to a new track. Then I used the Garageband Vocal Transformer to adjust the pitch up 3 steps to harmonize 3rds. Then I used the same effect to change the tonal qualities to be a little higher without affecting pitch. Then I auto tuned the hell out of it while limiting it to notes to the key of the song. I cut the bass and give it some high-mid (5Kish) and treble boost and then compressed it somewhat heavily.

I think it gives it sort of a Weenish feel and helps downplay the dark lyrical content.

I was just gonna say, it reminds me of Dean Ween's solo stuff before he was in Ween.
