Tales from the Swampside - The extended John Bolton version

-------------------


- I am test editing several different versions of this intro for a short CBG movie.

After John said it should be longer I thought so too.

I am having difficulty trying to mix the audio together with Dave's background music as his recodings have lots of background hiss and white noise....he recorded with his iPad mic.. so there is lots of extra background noise, the volume is also real low so I have to keep gain staging it over and over and jacking it up with gain more and more on each pass. I tryed to remove the hiss and bury it with guitar.....now there is too much guitar playing and a bit too much happening....,I wanted to make sure Daves twangy sound stayed front and center...i will send mine to a send track with a different reverb in the background next attempt... but i wanted to upload it as a test, I will try several versions till I get a better more even mix,....but this was a fun attempt. I am also putting tougher Daves Lost in the Desert videos ...soon to come!

Oh yeah.  Stay in the middle of the boat and don't drag you hands in the water.  Watch out for moss from the trees and you better say a prayer too. Man, I hope the sun comes up soon.
