Man I'm starting to be a hassle here. Right now, I got the shamisen part down, along with bass and guitar, and musically it makes enough sense what I'm doing but I'm having trouble mixing in the shamisen part. I already applied an EQ and a compressor, and have been toggling between the left and right speakers and adjusting the gain but I just can't get it to flow right. So the guitar and bass line fit together good and the shamisen and the bass do alright together but the shamisen and guitar just clash pretty hard, regardless of how I rewrite it (or so I think). [btw, one of the issues I think, is the bass is pretty smooth in this song but then the guitar and shamisen are both punchy] So anyone got any suggestions? If not, I have a friend stopping by tomorrow. I'll see what he thinks. If he doesn't have any ideas than I might just need to ditch the shamisen part :[
So I may or may not be done. I just don't know..!
