Description
Anybody remember Terraplane?
I asked Terry to rock out a little and he was game, but he couldn't help his blues self at the end. Told him to just go with it.

Terry: lead vocs, guitar, acoustic, harp
Me: guitars, bass, bkg vocs
Drums: AD2

Lyrics
Ready

your words are getting to me
decided that I'm ready for you

I know that I was wrong when I would play it safe
thought I needed freedom for another day
no ring upon my finger like a lock and key
i've had a change of thought and it won't let me be

now i'm thinking as i walk down the road
if i'm ready for the ultimate deal
all the life behind me now is getting old
your words are getting to me,
decided that i'm ready for you

I think of how i acted and I'm mortified
cheating an abrasion with a sordid life
now i'm hangin it all up on a distant shelf
got my head together, I'm another self

now i'm thinking while i walk down the road
if i'm ready for the ultimate deal
all the life behind me now is getting old
your words are getting to me,
decided that i'm ready for you

Excellent! I like the doubling on your vocals.
The vocals and melody is different for you.
Very trippy guitar ...
But I have to say the acoustic guitar and harp at the end is my fav....

you know that's Terry singing. But you're right, when I wrote this, I didn't think my voice fit the song at all. That's why I asked Terraplane to take the lead. I sing in spots, but turned down really low.

A vocal treat
And some excellent guitar while we're at it. Great unexpected change 30 seconds before the end. Sam and Terry win this week's box of pianos!

...then I'd have to take lessons! The guitars are mostly me on the left and Terry on the right except for those short liks that pop in for 5 seconds or so, then pop out--those are both me, and the acoustic which is Terry only.

I like the passionate vocal performance. But I also like the arrangement where you start out without guitar, so that the effect of bringing it in is all the more dramatic. Good stuff.

Thanks Vic
Thanks Vic
I've been experimenting with a new track chain and my goal was to keep the plugin count as short as possible (4 plugs: "Preamp", Eq, Comp, Tape sim) and work those as best as I can. Keeping it simple makes things sound less processed and more natural, I feel. I gain the advantage both of knowing just those 4 plugs in and out, and a more 'natural' sound. I don't even do common "studio tricks": automation, side chaining, etc). So the bass is purely the above mentioned--and my sloppy playing.

Interesting lyrics, Sam. You trying to tell us something? :-) Terry takes it and makes it his own but those layered vocals work a treat. It all works well. Nice one, guys. Thanks.

this was done a long time ago. In reality, I'm still not "Ready." Some parts of Terry's doubled vocal didn't quite line up, but crazy me actually likes stuff like that.

Hey Steve
(I still don't think you look like a 'Steve', more like an 'Eddie.' lol).
Thanks for the eq note (see Vic's reply above). Trying to "produce" like the old days when they didn't have as many options as we do today, and I think that's why older and classic CDs still sound great and hold up well today whether it was the usual guitar fodder or electronic like Kraftwerk. Limitations force me to use what I have in front of me (my four fav plugs) better and stay true to the source.

Wow, this one rocks so much, at so many levels, I don't know where to start. Songwriting, arrangement, vocal and guitar execution, mix and master... all done with great mastery. Kudos!

Powerful vocal that leads through this one, and then you guys rock out with the harp at 2:35. Energy plus - you're really grooving there. Nice!
