I chose to remix "You Will" simply because it's my favorite song on Heroes for Sale; the first time I heard it, I loved it. I knew that it would be challenging to create a great remix for such a great song, but I figured I'd give it a shot!
Once I decided I wanted to try and give it a rock sound, I plugged in my guitar and messed around on it until I found the chord progression that I wanted to use; I ended up recording 4 different guitar parts. Once that was recorded, I imported a bunch of drum samples, which I used to make the loops I used through the song. Lastly, I added a few synth pads to fill and smooth the mix out, and a melodic synth lead to add an extra boost to the hook. After that, I just added some EQ and compression to the whole mix and it was done!
I'm incredibly honored to have my remix chosen for this album. Thank you!
