woah i forgot to post this here!
a little over a week ago i got permission from pythonblue pythonblue to cover one of his older songs

I wanted to do this one for a while, but never felt like I was up to the task until now.

It was quite a challenge to get the guitar to sound decent! Your ears are not deceiving you: that is a six string guitar in Drop F.
I had to bore out my tuning pegs with a drill to get the strings to fit lol.

I couldn't adjust the microphone placement or my amp's EQ since I was also using it to record a future song, so all adjustments had to be made with plugins - not ideal, especially when there is LOTS of adjustment to be made lol.
Also in tunings this low, it gets harder to keep the guitar in its place in the mix without making it sound fizzy or dull, especially with all the different instruments fighting for the same frequencies. I think I did alright though - it was certainly good practice!

comments and critiques are appreciated! i tried alot of new things here - i really want to know what you guys think, both sound/tone and composition wise!
