The organic production and live band feel makes this a winner. Great acoustic tone and throbbing bass. The double tracked vocal is excellent. Great bluesy lead guitar tone. I love your twisted take on the vocal melody during the guitar solo.

Acoustic sits real nice in the mix. Electric guitar tone is fat, warm and smooth. Enjoyed your vocals and lyrics. Nice tune!

You nailed it
I was really pleased with how the guitar tone turned out, it had more body than I've been able to achieve in the past. But first time with a Deluxe Reverb in the mix to. I guess there is a reason they are in the running for most recorded amp ever.

Thanks!

Dig your theme on this one! I was just thinking bout the subject the other day, the dismal news that is.

Great guitar leads and vocal.

News and such
Your right Harold, if one wanted to they could probably get sucked into a pretty dark hole if they just dwelled on what's going on out there. I wonder if it's about more awareness in the information age, or me getting older and more cynical, or is it really worse then it's ever been?

Either way, we've only got one kick at the can so I'm going to enjoy the ride as best I can!

Right on!
Not just a wonderful piece of music (both guitars and vocals are great; sounds a little JJCale-ish) but the message is even better: get off your fat backside and accomplish something real!
Really nice, and thanks for the d/l.

hey!
Thanks for dropping in Karen, I'm glad you liked i. I can't quite put my finger on it but something is clicking in my awareness of how to do things in the mix now. I guess you can't play around with a hobby all this time and not figure out a couple of things!

Knopfleresque. Vocs have character. Great tone on both the acoustic and the electric. Nice mix.

Thanks
Thanks Dave, especially the Knopfler reference. I do play a strat and used my fingertips for the lead work on this one so perhaps that was what got you thinking that way.

Glad you like the mix, I think it's at a different level than I've been able to achieve in the past.

Thundering Mellow
Love that phrase! And believe it or not, there are no hand claps, just a fortunate combination of sounds having that effect.

Good point on the other interpretation of making the news!

paul f. page said 2204 days ago (November 30th, 2011)
Nice
You do some very cool riffs with the line "Make your own news" as it comes in with each refrain. This strikes me as a very solid "story number," a rhythm backing that can easily serve a narrative without getting boring or overly repetitive. ... Oh, nice guitar solo springing out of the whole...And then...it just ends! Huh? I'd love to hear you write "some news" or tell a story with this as your theme. For me, this is a great work in progress. I hope you will develop it even more, and if not, then it still stands as a solid foundation to...something.

Thanks for the thoughtful comments Paul. I was thinking I was done with the song but I just got an offer from a friend of mine with much more studio experience to re-work this. I'll take your thoughts under advisement!

Good job Pete! Like the double track vox throughout, they move and groove and sit well into the mix . . lovely little chord structure and riff, again great rounded tone that sounds like it was a whole lot of fun to play!

great riff and vocals. I love the sound of the bass locked with the drums, very tight and this has a great groove.
Love the bluesy guitars too, another excellent song.
