My little cover of Basket Case


This is the first song I do by taking the drums from a MIDI file and using a soundfont on Fruity Loops; I added bass and guitar.... hope you enjoy it!

I love this song. This is a pretty good take.

Honest critique - you should turn down the distortion a bit and damp the beginning chords. The songs dynamics can be lost otherwise.

But aside from that this is pretty cool and put a smile on my face.

I don't know this tune, I must admit, but the mix was really nice. The guitar in the beginning seemed sort of "naked" and maybe a bit of reverb would smooth out that distortion a bit on that part..but heck..when the instruments came it..it was a great. Nice job!

I know without the vocals the intro sounds kinda naked :( anyways, it was fun doing it
