Lindsey was hosting a cover contest to help other youtubers gain exposure so I thought I'd try my magic on her original "dubstep violin" song "Crystalize." I only worked on this for 2 or 3 days so it wasn't as great as it could have been, also considering I've only been playing violin for 5 weeks. Between playing viola in a professional orchestra and all the ensembles I'm in at school, I just didn't have much time left to work on this. I purchased the sheet music on her site a couple days ago and got to work. It came with a backing track but other than that, everything you hear being played is 100% me. I didn't play over the original track. I started out by learning the violin part and first recorded that. Then I figured out the chords throughout the song so that I would have something to work off of on guitar and the harmony lines on viola. The harmonies were just improvised from the chord symbols I had written out earlier but turned out nicely! I added in guitar last to fill in what spots I thought it would sound better than my viola although at a couple points I did have all three instruments tracking at once. This has been the biggest collective project that I have worked on to date and I do hope that you enjoy it.
A short note to Lindsey:
Thanks for hosting this contest! I admire you and your music deeply and can't wait to see the results!
I play a Fegley commissioned series viola that was hand-made by the amazing James Fegley just before he passed away. My violin was purchased a month ago from the same shop although it has been passed around and it shows. It's estimated to be over 250 years old. My guitar is a PRS McCarty Standard which I playing into a Fender "Blues Deluxe Reissue" with a "Fulltone OCD" distortion pedal. I record with an Audio-Technica AT2020 condsenser microphone into Garage Band and edit with iMovie.
