Thanks again for your careful input.
Actually, I was thinking in something more straight rock when doing the arrangement. I guess the acoustic vibe came spontaneously, in this case. But it’s not something I avoid, at all. I think I’m more of an acoustic guitar player after all.
I used Hydrogen for the drum parts and until now I’ve never experimented with real percussion instruments, like you’re suggesting. But I’m definitely willing to do that now!
Just to note, “Afuche” here in Brasil is called “Afoxé”. I didn’t knew it has that name abroad and it’s very interesting. We can notice clearly how one word came after another.
So, well, I guess I have to pay a visit to the local music store now, just as soon as this pandemic allows
As for vocals, they were recorded in the same room as the guitar, nothing special. I’ve used a little reverb, and I think I understand what you’re talking about. But mixing is pretty complex sometimes, It’s still hard to get exactly the sound I’m after.
But I’m glad the vibe has gotten across, as you said.
Thanks a lot!
