Song: Rock Version – How Do I Make You See

While I was touching up the first remix, I couldn’t resist trying out a few rock barre chords. Tried the C/G/F combination and it sounded quite catchy. And this pop rock version was born. This is one of my fav remix.

The uploaded stems (click on the Download link) include a full backing track (i.e. drums, bass, guitars). If anyone wants to go Karaoke with it, try that track.

Process
Since myvanillaworld wrote that she sang the pell in the key of C, I tried the C/G/F chord combination. Sounded perfect, so I went along with that.

The pell was already edited and arranged from the version 1 remix. I laid a new drum/ shaker track. Then recorded the dirty guitar tracks. Overlaid that with the clean guitar tracks. To fill up the space, I recorded a (minor) lead guitar track. Did more minor edits to the pell to fit better. Adjusted the fades, volume levels and mix.

Finally added a bass track.
