Hear Dave Meniketti’s Raw Vocal Track on “If You Want Me” from Y&T’s ‘Facemelter’

Dave Meniketti: Just wanted to give you guys a fly-on-the-wall experience of one of my vocal tracks and guitar soloed, straight off the master tracks. No effects, EQ, or compression. Raw as it gets.

This track is from the 2010 Y&T Facemelter record and is mostly just Dave’s vocal, with a little of the guitar mixed lower in the background. Dave was going to post this with only the vocal track, but thought this was a better musical representation of this raw performance. Taken directly from the record’s digital multi-track files with no equalization, effects, or compression. You are hearing the raw performance, just as Dave heard it in his headphones, as he sang it. All the other tracks have been muted (Drums, other electric guitars, and bass. Just a peek into how this came together before Tom Size mixed the entire track.
