Her is the first version of the guide track.
The first version is always the worst – no effects, no equalisation, no compression – it’ll sound empty and every issue in the recording will stand out. Ignore the drums as far as possible, all this needs to achieve is to keep my notoriously haphazard approach to timing in somekind of check – extra points to those who spot the mistakes. Extra-extra points if you don’t point them out.
The only thing that’s important with this take is that the structure is in place and that the guide track gives all the cues that are necessary for the instruments that will follow.
Take a listen – revolting eh?
