My version of Eva Cassidys Version - Fields of Gold
Hey everyone, so I decided to start posting on YouTube again. I’ll soon be posting tutorials etc. But for a bit of fun I hope you enjoy this cover I just posted. (Not orchestral)
- so obviously I didn’t write this piece but I have changed the harmonic language a bit to be a bit more bluesy/ Jazzish in parts… while also creating more id a singer songwriter feel with the chord voicings I picked.
Chords include a lot of sus4/add6/maj7/dom7.
Counter harmony in piano include add2 on tonic on occasion.
Bass line dances around Tonic, 5th and 6th which gives the phrasing it’s movement. (The counterpoint bit).
I used a few plugins extensively to level out my my mix and add a bit of flavour to the recording. (Mainly waves)
Abbey roads saturator (ac guitars)
Stock logic comp (cajon) on the LA2A CloneSetting.
scheps omni channel (my favourite plugin) on the Cajon And vocals.
Vocal leveller on vocals (2 instances)
Renaissance vox on vocals (That coupled with the leveller really does wonders for vocals.
transient master on Cajon
H Delay on vocals
Abbey roads chamber side chained for room verb.
Valhalla vintage verb sidechained for tail.
No processing on the piano. Didn’t need it.
Mastering chain includes
Izotope ozone 9 (only used the maximiser and imager)
Stock loudness meter
Reneissance EQ (really enjoy this EQ for small tweaks, very transparent)
Guitar x2 (Live)
Piano (recorded live but it’s a blend of labs piano and addictive keys as The labs adds the body that I think addictive doesn’t quite give you).
Shaker (not live. Just reinforces tonic)
If you would consider subscribing that would be very appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to listen!
