This is something a little different and I hope it's appropriate for iCompositions.com. If it's not, hey, I'm new here, so someone let me know.

This is a song written and performed by my son, Sam Wade. It's my first attempt at recording live music on GarageBand. I'm posting it here to see if I can get any tips.

This was recorded at a local coffee shop a few months ago. I ran a line out from Sam's PA into a Griffin iMic and into the USB port of my iBook G4. Everything is recorded on one track in GB. I did do quite a bit of post production cleanup and enhancement on this.

Please let me know what you think of the recording and feel free to give me any constructive criticism. You can also comment on the song too if you wish. (Sam records quite bit on his Mac too, maybe we can talk him into registering on iComp.)

You can visit my son at his website: www.samwade.com or at his MySpace page.

I'm going to hide the download button since this is not my song, but if you really want a copy, leave a comment and although I can't make any promises, I'll see what I can do.

I've only been on icomp for a few weeks but I can't imagine something not being appropriate as long as it is done with fun, creativity, a pure motive, and most of all passion.

That being said, your son is awesome. I loved it. Their is something magical about a solo acoustic guitar and voice, especially when they're good; and the recording came out great as well.

I hope to hear more.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Honestly, I really can't say I know what I'm doing here. I know a very small amount of the basics of how gates, compressors, and equalizers work, so I just begin experimenting until it sounds good to my ears.

However, when you have a recording subject that can really play and sing it helps a lot! smiley

Yes I think Sam needs to get himself registered on here! Great song and very good recording. I am a sucker for a live raw recording, imperfections and all (um not that there actually are any here!). I look forward to hearing more from you

Thanks, pandas. I'm like you, I'd rather hear a raw honest recording than something that's been overproduced to the point of losing its soul. I don't know if Sam will register, but I may post a couple of more songs from this show same in the near future.
