COLLAB: "Merica" by Live featuring Mike B. on Guitars

Here is the third Live collab cover featuring my great buddy and former guitarist, Mike Bedrossian. We've done two other songs from the album Secret Samadhi:

"Turn My Head:"

And "Freaks:"

I recorded drums and vocals for this one around the same time as the other two and asked Mike if he wanted to record guitars on this one as well. Life happened but finally, he was able to send me his video and audio tracks, and it is worth the wait. I think this is the best sounding one of the three! (What do you think? Let me know in the comments!)

I also decided to learn the bass line since the bass track from XTRAX was more wonky than usual. Good thing the bass line was nice and easy. It sounds a lot better now with a clean bass track. Enjoy:

Thanks to Mike B. for taking the time to do this collab!
