Bon Jovi – Living On A Prayer – Isolated Vocals – Analysis and Tutorial – Recording Techniques

Sometimes rather than scratching a whole song entirely, it’s better to see if you can rework it instead.

Such was the case for “Livin’ On A Prayer” which Jon Bon Jovi apparently did not like the original recording of. Fortunately after some convincing by Richie Sambora, they decided to change the bassline, use new drum fills and add the use of a talk box.

I’ve got the actual isolated vocal track from the recording so we can look at how Jon got to those different places while hearing how the recording actually happened.

I’ll also explore the engineering techniques that were used including the different types of reverb we’ll hear in the recording.
