I got asked to help record a lift – when you record a cover of another band’s song and try to make it as close to the original as possible – by Johnny the other day for a school project. The song he’s decided to use for his project is LG Fuad by Motion City Soundtrack. As usual I said yes without even listening to the song. Now that I’ve had almost a week to go through it, memorize the parts, accent placements, figure out the tom fills, and differing transitions; I think I’m ready to take to the studio tonight. It’s going to be fun screwing around with drum sounds trying re-create that special sound MCS captures in almost all their tunes. <excited squeal> Here’s the video to the song we’re lifting. Enjoy it and I’ll let you know how everything works out tomorrow after all is said and done.
