Description
I did this about a month ago with a guitarist from my DAW forum. Didn't like the mix and re-did it.

Morgon: lead guitar
Me: all others, bass, and vocals
Drums: Addictive

Based on a midi tune written by Neumuzik.

Morgon (the dude from my DAW forum) had made the generous offer to collab at some time, so I took him up on that for this tune. He's from your country and such a cool guy. He wasn't even feeling well at the time but insisted he'd do it even after I told him we could just wait until he felt better. Whatta guy.

I like

Well, that would be my fault. I asked Morgon to be a bit unconventional since I didn't want a "typical," predictable lead guitar. So he came through. I always suspect stuff like that to not appeal to every one, but it's cool if/when it works. Thanks mucho Mark.

Hey Steve
don't hear 60s much on this, but hey it's not a bad thing. I was trying to fake an intimate club vibe. I even sang through a jazz amp and used the amp verb on my voice. Just tryin stuff. heh

Hi Sam ... been a while. I love this feel ... That fat, fairly dry lead in the centre is cookin'! Ha ha ... like the crowd. A real toe tapper ... Tremelo fits the rhythm ... great vocals and a close to you feeling mix. Dig this.

I didn't
mention it in the song info, but the song is based off a midi tune written by Neumuzik. I like the rhythm of it so much, I asked him if I could liven it up a bit with some real guitars and bass. He obliged and this was the result. Thx J.

hey Vic
I felt like some growly singing and this was perfect for it. The title's DG Blues, but there's nothing blues about it. Sounds like my Southerness was coming out.

70's too...
-This is what I hear
tremolo guitar, pan far left (beach boys, CCR)
Slap back echo on vocals & deep reverb
fuzz guitar (sound) CCR
flat wound bass strings (McCartney picked?)
drums (come together)

I can
hear those elements, but CCR is the only one that was consciously in mind. Great call on that one.
I'm fingering the Pawnshop bass.

Built on a way cool riff. Has a Grateful Dead vibe that I love. Excellent guitar work. Great old school guitar tones and textures. Cool vocals. Digging those harmonies.

Simple and Sizzling
This starts off with a bit of a Creedence feel and then Morgan's lead takes it into a bit of a Jimmy Page-esque feel. All very sweet.

I do think the vocals should come up a tad in the mix, but that's a personal nit. All in all, very cool. ;)

Hey Joe
Yep, I got that very same nit from another mixing site. The vocs have since been raised along with a few other changes suggested there. Since this one's already up here, no need to bore with a re-post. I'll just do better on the next song. Really appreciate the stop by.

Sounds like you two are having too much fun to be having the blues :-) The lead work is inventive but still remains true to format. Classic vamp. Thanks, Peter.

Like you say, a bit CCR, but the guitar takes it more into the 21st century. Excellent vocals, as we have come to expect.

Lots to like here
I especially enjoyed the harmony sections, but the whole thing sounds great. Live late night club/bar feel works really well. Top post!

Pretty cool tune. Good guitar work too. Don't hear tremolo too often, but it works fine here.
