The Bottom Line.....

Description
This is something I've been messing around with, just so I could Mix it
think I'm getting the hang of this program....
I think simplicity is the key and minimal instruments, as in this case just
tried to get a good feel going with a hard core funk groove.....
You tell me.....what you think.....

All instruments are done by me.....

And if someone has the gumption to lay some keys to this let me know and
we'll work it out...

Hope you all like it......

Thanks....
It is kinda full in all spectrums but some simple lines by a clave or synth playing a pad, or swell
dropping in one the 1 would do wonders....
The sound they make would be the question???......A priority, it has to be a cool blend......

Glad you like it.....and thanks again......

The Bottom Line.....
Love the way it starts with the bass panning across the phones and when the guitar and drums kick in it has a real live room feel to it. This has real good feel man, one of my personal fav's. I like the way your guitar is out front more than other pieces I have listened to. I'm diggin' that straight ahead drum sound with the emphasis on the backbeat with the snare. I can hear a B3 or rhodes happening here or a rippin' sax solo. Cool funky tune with great feel ... what more can I say?

Nothing More....
You've said all one needs to know, I can tell it comes from the heart....It's real....
You are a player this is who and what we are.....Music....

I was thinking a much tougher sound, then a B3, Sax or Rhodes they are not hard core enough
and their realism and clarity would take the groove some where else but anything is worth a
try in the world of Music....

Thanks for stopping by.....

Well you know that I'm not that good at ( Bass ) but I try, just keeping it simple
as possible always creates a solid groove.....KISS principle....... :-)

Thanks ....Sam...
Not being what you would call a bass player, it's hard to convey what you are feeling to someone
that can play.... So I have to do the next best thing......Play it myself...... :-)

the bottom line
man this has got some truth in it! I love that guitar tone and you are playing like you MEAN IT!!

The simplicity of the bass is perfect. I need to get with an electric bass myself, and I am no bass player either. I always get some inspiration from your stuff.

Thanks...My Man..
In all things Musical there is inspiration, if it comes from the heart.....
You are one that can plug into what you are feeling, you live it by playing it....
This is what it's all about......

Really glad you like it.....thanks for stopping by.....

kingbee said 2703 days ago (July 19th, 2011)
you got the funk
Well, your bass playing is classy on this and has a lovely rich tone.
And you guitar playing is excellent. Comes in in all the right places. Compliments without dominating but still catches the ears.
The drums have an almost 'marching' quality to them,
maybe it's the Army of Funk on their way to just get down.
Anyway
cool stuff and enjoyed
cheers

Thank you .....
But not truly a Bass player, more like a guitbassdrum...player.....
What I try to feel is the groove, then just add as few notes as possible, glad you like the end result....

That's.....
What Funk is.... You win the golden ring...... In the beginning that's where the groove
started with a rock feel back in the 60's the history is very cool....
And interesting I think we could all learn something from that........You just have to know
where the 1 is.....that simple....... Thanks for stopping by......

Thanks for stopping by, glad you like it as well....
And yep....the Wah-Wah is a vital tool some players, most times I'm trying to make it say something
voice is shot, so it helps my guitar be my voice....

Big Bottom Line
Another corker. I can hear some simple keyboard stabs on this, but I would really like to hear what Mr Sammydix would do with some vocals. You're torturing us with the no - downloads thing, but vee haff vays ...

Llarion said 2702 days ago (July 20th, 2011)
Ahhhh, meaty...
Protein-filled, gravy laden goodness... Keyboard? I hear a screeching B3, but I can't play what's in my head... This thing stomps. I love your approach; "Play as few notes as possible to make it work". It's a really cool, disciplined approach.. And you make it work like nobody's business!

Soundhound said 2701 days ago (July 21st, 2011)
If there.....
Is no meat on the bone, the tune can't stand on it's own.....
That is true in everything we do, B3 ya..I hear it in my head
but I could not tell you how to play it....You've got to feel it......

I'm starting to think that less is more has become a law that I follow
to the letter now.....I'm going back to the feel, not how orchestrated it is
or how many chords patterns I can fit in to a Bar of music......
If I ain't feeling it I ain't playing it.....LOL

The Bottom Line.....
Nice groove and expressive guitar playing. Reminds me of Joe Walsh.

Soundhound said 2701 days ago (July 21st, 2011)
Don't really......
Know much about Joe Walsh, to be honest I don't listen to a lot of other players
because I don't want to play what they play, I may sound like a lot of people that's
only because we use the same gear or something similar but I'm trying to do my
thing not someone else's.......Thanks for stopping by......

Les_Kloo said 2701 days ago (July 21st, 2011)
Bottom line
The bass is cool, but the guitar makes it. Simplicity is just the thing when it comes to funky. Gotta have the bass and drums providing the engine. The guitar chooses the destination. Don't need much else. Really like that pop on the snare. You're playing those too? Sheesh, a one-man band. Personal preference would be to crank the bass a bit more, but it's sounding good as is.

Soundhound said 2700 days ago (July 22nd, 2011)
Thank you.....
I'm really glad that you like it.....
And yes I'm playing the drums to, these are tracks that I've done years ago....
I've chopped them up and made tracks with them a few times, it's hard to
play now and like it, I get a different sound in the room now and that sound
is gone for ever....The Bass could be tweaked a few more db but naaaaa
not now I look at it again, when I find the things it needs......

Thanks Again.......

Everything sounds great but the bass is buried in the mix to my ears. Tight groove though. I like the stereo congas. Enjoyed.

My Man......
How are you....Yes it was just a bit to thick to put it up front, so I dropped the Bass back a touch....
Guess I could've compressed it but the lose of tone would've been to much for me, you are the only
one that commented on that and you would truly know, what that's all about.......

Thanks My Friend for stopping by, glad you like it.......Peace

For stopping by, really glad it touches you in a groove kinda way...
I've never really heard of Lyle Workman but I will check him out, I'm sure
he's on the net. somewhere.....
Bootsy is a Friend and I only dream of sounding as good as he does, the only
thing we have in common is the groove and our historical background....Music...

Some fine funky guitar and a solid simple percussion. Lots to enjoy on this one. Could almost hear this on a soundtrack to something involving cars on a freeway. Cheers Mark
