Nice one. Like your vocals and harmony "whoo" Bas is groovin' and guitar playing and tone sounds good. all my vocals and instrument recording are done with a sure 58! ... I swear by them ... whoa ...you get real funky at about !:42 ,very cool bass and then at 2;06 I like the funky guitar you let rip! Warm mix ...
Has a retro feel to it.
Cheers

This was 2 songs... But somehow I blended them together. I have a real nice ksm27 mic. I dont solo on the bass all that much. But it was time its been a few years. I swear by the 58 live. Thanks Gad!!!

Mind slippage
Why? The easy answer is - age : )

This piece has a nice jaunty youthful rhythm, with nimble-fingering on the leads and fills, and sung with confidence .. all of which contradicts my comment about aging.

Age
yeah age,, But I am better and mellower than when I was 25. Infact I call my music middle aged rock. Thanks for the listen and nice comment.

nice tune
Dig the overall vibe. Great playing, great lyrics, great arrangement. Love the breakdown in the middle. Is that one of the GB drum loops?

I wanted the vocals to be a little more upfront in the mix, maybe less reverb. Thanks for sharing!!

Mixing...
I just wish I was better at mixing. Im getting better. The loop is the Logic loop. I thought it needed more reverb. But Im mixing on headphones right now and sometimes even the computer speakers.Thanks and I agree,,,,

Really reminds
me of the Doors, this, although it is no slavish imitation at all. It's a brilliant thing to sound like anyway, isn't' it? It sounds live, for some reason, in a good way.

Nice. Enjoyed. Thank you.

Great groove established - mainly as a result of that driving bass with the wonderful tone! Everything works well - the vocal, the guitar solos, the solid drums. Thanks for the download!

Being a bass player....
Being a bass player. My bass parts are much stronger than the other instruments I record. The drums in this case are loops! Thanks for the stop over!!!

Snappy groove, the bass is tops! Thanks for keeping the faith! Right in the pocket, the backing vocals are sweet and just about perfect... "hoot"... Was that Elvis with that slap back thing going on... thanks for blast!

Infectious, upbeat groove, Steve. Sounds like you really don't care all that much that things are slipping past you :-) Bass is sounding real nice. Like the backing "whoo's" and the guitar work. I agree with Marc re just a touch of a Doors vibe creeping in, in parts, which is just alright by me. Good post! Thanks, Peter.

Oh yeah...
Right out of the box, cool intro. I like the way this song moves. Your vox works well against the guitar part. And that is some real fine riffing. Funky blues...

musichead said 2014 days ago (March 20th, 2012)
Blues ....
I played in a blues band for years. But this really my first written blues song Im sure. I still say I could sing this better but I get all stoked and release it early! Thanks for the stop and listen!

Your
playing is awesome, you nimble fingered chap. The ooh, ooh (or whoo, whoo?) chorus reminds me of those bands that had three backup singers. Such a lively piece. Thanks.

Takes me back...
...way too many years. Nice rock 'n' roll number with a great thumpin' bass that holds the whole thing together in such a groovy way. There are lots of wonderful little guitar licks throughout that make the accompaniment sing...esp. the lengthy bridge. Your rhythm really cooks and is so much fun to listen to. I am afraid I cannot comment on the lyrics because I just couldn't understand them. My failing hearing, I'm afraid. Really enjoyed this mellow tune.
