In this video, I go over the final touches on this blues-rock track, in the style of Joe Bonamassa with a female singer, and the final mix from the live YouTube video I recently had done. This video details the drums and what I changed from the first video and how I got the sound I did. There will be separate videos for the bass guitar/electric guitars, vocals, vocal throws, keyboards, and automation.
Audio files will be available until March 15th listed here. When you enter your email you’ll a download link window will pop up. https://mailchi.mp/c4ec0d2d5c0c/mixing-stems
