Description
An open collaboration with Tony Grant (Sound Hound).
Added my bass playing, and Tony remixed, to a funky groove!
The guitars are outstanting and clear,
I did not have much time to put together my part, but I always enjoy jammin' with the hound . . .

Collaborations are a great way to get to know other artist, and share ideas musically. Some come together quickly and others take months!
They bring out the best of us, by having fun and entertaining ourselves and others with our music. Do not be afraid to ask or decline a collaboration, but asking is where it starts . . .

funky indeed....
this has some shades of a Clapton guitar song. I like it. Collaborations often bring a vitality and chemistry to a song that exceeds anythings the solo artist would do apart. Like I said, I like this... even though it repeats the basic line, it never gets old... that chemistry coming through.

Good one.

Dude!
That sound is not coming from a Mustang! That is so cool! And here I was thinking the only way to get that throaty tone was with a P or J as old as me. My hat is off. The live sound of the recording makes me feel like I'm in the room with the band. I'm going to the bar. Anybody need something? On my way back I'll drop some dead presidents in the band's tip jar.

Clean, energetic and driving
Hey, 'scaus, I've heard you do a lot of diverse stuff. Here you're doing service to the band, but I'm waiting for the bass solo and... where is it? I'm just messing with ya. Overall, you guys got groove, energy and a clean, balanced mix. My only "want" is to hear a screaming high-octave lead guitar in some of the empty space ripe for such vocalization.

First thank you
for the comments. This is an open collaboration, where Tony will take it next I'm not sure. But what I hear is funky clavichord, with a Eddie Hazel style lead guitar!!!

Bass Sound
I gig with my Mustang bass cause it is much lighter and has a unique gritty sound.
My PBass fuller sound but is much heavier so after a four hour gig my shoulder bothers me.
