Mostly an exercise in my methods and workflow, it was fun to re-do an old favorite.

I know there's not many Reggae fans here, but maybe you guys will appreciate it.

This was completed from start to finish in just under 6 hours.

(Bed tracks like drum, bass, rhodes, and piano done in Reason. Re-built and minimally remixed in Reaper with some VB3 organ VSTi added, as well as duping the MIDI data from my drums in Reason and triggering Addictive drums in Reaper - However, I think most of the drums you hear are from Reason - guitar and live bass were also added via Reaper. Vocals were tracked in Reaper as well)
Hi Ras, Nice to hear you can sing as well as being a Fantastic Guitar player, Really enjoyed your other Vid Tutorial on Neptune, and may even give it a go myself, Keep up the good work, Wee Joe.

Yes. Amazing work for 6 hours. I think the bass sounds lovely in tone and though I could agree with Pat303 that timing wise it could use a little loosening it I really like the tight tone of it. I'd personally like to hear the odd rasta "tock" with some splangy tape delay but that's me I can't resist filling a space! : ) Very nice Just checking out some of your other work too on you tube..... Very nice. I REALLY like the tone of that bass guitar...beautiful.
