Little Tiki Bar (Russo Mix)



 Genre: Folk-Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

A friend of mine recently asked if he could try to re-mix one of my songs. So I gave him the raw files of "Ballad of the Little Tiki" (http://macjams.com/song/50747)that I posted last year. I thought this would be quite the challenge for him.

About the song: My father had written the lyrics in honor of his favorite bar closing last February and had asked me to try and put his words to music. I threw it together within a few hours but never spent any time on the details. This new mix, while not complete is light years better than what I submitted last year. As many of you know, I don't really consider myself much of a guitar player, however all the guitars on the track are me (including the lame attempts at soloing). The song still needs a bass track (if anyone is interested drop me a note).

Gosh, even to my jaded ears there is a lot of treble here. I'm sure it'll sound better balanced with bass track to give it a bit of oomph! The song however is great and soloing sounds just fine to me. I look forward to a 'final' version.

This one, a very nice song of a bar loss, and your gits in there sounds great, I wish I could play half that good, vocals is just great, and yes a bass and the mission is complete.

Very well done vocals
The guitar is def. needing some treble reduction on this one but the song is excellently written and sung. I would move the vocals up in the mix a bit too. That may just be because of the treble of the acoustic though.

feel good track of the month!
loved it. i agree about the high end in the guitars, i bet if some mids were added, it would really boost those acoustics up... i would be happy to throw down some bass tracks, if'n you still need them..

I'd say you're
a pretty decent guitarist. I enjoyed this one. I heard nothing that sounded "lame"

Sang in high school many years ago- I've been playing guitar on and off for the last twenty years and still don't know what the heck I'm doing. Don't ask me what chords, notes, or keys I'm playing in- I use the force when I play! I wrote my first two... [see more]
