Les Paul was not only a brilliant guitarist and arranger but his early experiments with overdubbing (also known as’sound on sound’) pioneered the art and science of multi-track recording.
Jason Loughlin’s Sound On Sound groundbreaking curriculum does indeed celebrate Les Paul’s genius but it’s also much more than an interactive exploration of multi-track recording for guitarists — it’s an eye and ear-opening learning experience revealing the key creative process behind crafting multiple guitar parts for virtually any arrangement or original composition.
There’s only a handful of courses that belong in every guitarist’s library whatever their level or style preference happens to be — this is unquestionably one of them.
”We’ll work with a Les Paul-inspired multi-track arrangement of the jazz standard “After You’ve Gone” which is comprised of 9 individual guitar parts. Together, we’ll examine the entire arrangement part-by-part. I’ll show you how to play each part, explain why they work harmonically and rhythmically, and how they’re recorded.
You’ll learn how to build a rhythm section by comping using common jazz chords, how to recreate the sound of a hi-hat, a bass guitar, and drums — all with the electric guitar.
Once we have our rhythm section in place, we’ll lay down our main melody guitar, and then the real fun begins. We’ll layer five more guitar parts imitating trumpet stabs, sax lines, trombone sections, and unison violin runs to create depth and real conversation between voices.”
Jason organized the course into three sections. In the first section, Jason will share some key background about Les Paul and how he fits into the history of recording and multi-track arranging. You’ll also learn more about song form and how to best get ideal echo and reverb sounds in our modern age.
