In this episode of MakeMineMusic, Marc Daniel Nelson shows a sneaky but extremely effective trick to get your background vocals to stay under the lead which in turn makes the lead vocal even stronger.
Is this the most important Background vocals trick?
This trick has saved Marc an incredible amount of time when trying to get the clarity needed to get the background vocals sit up front, and behind the lead vocals, without sounding brash or like they are taking over the main lead vocal.
The song used to demonstrate this trick is “Just Kids” by Brave Holiday and Produced by Andrew Bergthold.
