Description
have a lot of trouble with static noise with my Fender Strat, also generally have trouble with getting decent electric guitar sounds on GB, all the pedals seem very effect heavy.
this started as a rant about a dangerous aggressive tail-gater, but broadened out into a more general attack on the alpha-male mindset.

tail gaters
yeah, and people who cut in front of ya. really like the guitar rifs and bass really drives this tune along. not much you can do about the single coil hum. possibly a noise gate might help.

they are everywhere
And they all have a story, Man the bass in this really walks and rolls through this so many interesting parts, the guitar just pokes through and that crazy synth, guitar lead part was great!

thank you
really appreciate you taking the time to listen and the kind comments. The synth is actually one of MIDI clav settings in GB. I usually associate the sound with people like Stevie Wonder in the '70's on songs like "superstition".

I'm
not so sure I mind how the guitars sound as much as how you're playing them. It's almost counter-rhythm-ish and gives the song a certain excitement. Sort of reminded me of G. Dead a bit in style.
Cool surprise after coming to listen.

guitar style
I think my style of playing on the electric is a bit unusual, because I am yet to master playing with a pick. All my formative years I was playing a nylon string where strumming and using a pick just doesn't work. the result is I still struggle with those basic techniques when playing electric.
I came back to listen to this after listening to your really dynamic mix on Let Me Out and feel somewhat chastened. By comparison this seems a bit limp with the vocals being both dull and too high up the mix. still its a learning process! Thank for you kind comments

I think that's actually to your advantage.

As for your mix, the low end is dominating and drowning most of the other instruments. I think it's a matter of "cleaning up" the low mids (~200 and 400kHz area). Scoop some of that out and add a little more to the high end and you're good.

A lot going on here
A very interesting song in the construction and performance.

Nice playing and I wouldn't worry about not using a plectrum. Jeff Beck doesn't use a one. Do a YT search for Jeff Beck guitar style.

The vocals were a bit lost for me so the lyrics would have been useful.

Single coil hum? I turn my back on the speakers and try to get as far away from the sound source as possible.

Cheers

Wow Charlie!
I LOVE your guitar playing on this man! Not only the playing but the tone as well. Also may be your best vocal yet.

Very much enjoyed!

60 cycle noise?
Noise canceling pickups? The 60 cycle is hard to escape. It is in the cables and the outboard gear as well. It is also in the electricity coming to your home studio. Make certain you have good grounds on everything.
The bass and guitar on yer recordings are always great. I am suggesting a talk with the percussionist. Fills are nice but groove first.
I would also pan out a left and right buss from the drums and put some "reflections" off the walls in the space. Drums are high energy, they get to walls in the space first and we should hear that to discern the nature of the space.
Challenge, take this track and pull the drum fills and rebalance the drums in the stereo field. What happens to the groove?
