I love a good audio recording experiment, and I have a song that could use that unmistakeable Jeff Lynee sound that he brought to Brian Wilson's "Let It Shine" not to mention Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Del Shannon, and the Threetles. I just love the overall sound he brings to the table. I've carefully studied my favorite tracks that he's worked on (mostly the late 80s stuff like Wilburrys, "You Got It", "Got My Mind Set On You", "Free Fallin'", and Del Shannon's "Walk Away") and I think I got a good idea of how he positions instruments in the mix. I've also been watching the footage of the recording session for Roy's "You Got It" and have been taking notes of how he arranges and overdubs parts. The main thing I'd like to focus on is mic'ing and EQ. I'm thinking this thread is more or less for engineers only since they genuinely seem to know what they're doing/talking about. And since there are even some lucky dogs here that have worked on/with some of Jeff's projects, I'm thinking I'm going to get some good answers as well. Again, this is only for a little experiment for me to see just how close to Jeff Lynne I can make it sound without Jeff Lynne actually coming in to produce it.
