  2. Hi Tom. Thank you so much for the kind comment and the suggestion on the snare 🙏
  3. Hey FJ! Gracias por el comentario y la oferta. Ahí te mantendré en mente cuando la vaya a rehacer. Muchísimas gracias!
  4. Love your stuff, John
  5. John! A million thanks. The words are roughly: Verse 1 With only a look at you my heart skips a beat, and I jumble up my words and lose all reasoning. When I'm with you I smile stupidly, and I think of things that are done between two people. In the moments I see you pass by I know that my eyes can't help but to touch your back. I wanna have an accident in your curves and fill you totally with pleasure chorus Uh Uh baby I wanna submerge in you, I'd wanna be able to be covered with your essence like that, honey. Uh uh mama, to savor your body like a chocolate (candy bar) Verse 2 I wanna have you without shame . I wanna taste in my mouth the sweat of your neck, to see you smiling under me, cus you know exactly why we're here. I want your breath shortened from loving, and to fill my hands with your warm breast. I wanna have an accident in your curves. I wanna fulfill you like a man would a woman. Chorus .
  6. Tom! I’m so so glad that you were able to make all that out. You’re on to me😂. When I was a kid (in the 70s) in Cuba I would listen at night to pop in English on a little AM radio we had. Sometimes If the weather was just right I would be able to tune into stations from Florida or the Caribbean from the rooftop of the building I lived in. I couldn’t make out the words at the time but I could feel the emotions in the music. Those long chord progressions and prominent melodies made me dream. Thanks for the feedback on the strat. (pun intended) 😉
  7. Thank you so much, Mark. Sent you an email here. Hope to hear from you on that 🙂
  8. 😂 I'm glad you like the lead guitar, Kurt.

    Hi everyone. Found another old session that fully opens with Cakewalk by BandLab since all the effects I used in it were from the included Sonitus bundle. About the song: I liked this girl very much and I told her I'd write her a song of any style she wanted. She spoke in "Spanglish" a lot and she thought it would be funny if it were either gospel or disco (go figure). I chose to do something like a Maroon 5 song so it wouldn't be pure disco, and did the old Swedish “track and hook” songwriting trick as well as used minor-major tonality and key changes. Wrote it in Spanish but using some terms of endearment in English that are recognized by people around the world and that counted as "Spanglish", did one take of the lead vocal to an acoustic guitar recorded with a click track, and it came out with a good energy so I built the rest of the song around that.
  13. Mark! Brilliant again. I checked out your SoundCloud. Great stuff. Thank you for sharing it here 👍🏼

    Brilliant work, Mark. Full stop
  15. Thank you so much, Treesha. I’ll keep looking and as soon as I change it or get it re-recorded by a guitar player I will re-post, as well as share suggestions for plug-ins and settings. Thank you so much for the encouragement and kindness. 😊
  16. Thank you, Paul. I really appreciate the feedback, and thank you for the kind comments on the track and vocals. it means a lot to me. I’m just a guy with a plastic keyboard and a computer who likes to write songs, and I’m not a guitar player, or a bass player, or a drummer, or even a singer for that matter, so I’m always looking to learn from real musicians. …do you have any suggestions on how to achieve a tone you would prefer on the solos? What amps, pedals, speakers, mics, rooms, etc would you use? Any tricks you could share to achieving your sound? Any help would be appreciated 🤙🏼😊 Much thankful. M
  17. Thank you for your generosity, noynekker. I am really glad you enjoyed all of it. Thanks also for the hack about streaming services. I’ll definitely take that into account when choosing what mixes to upload. Thank you from the heart 🙏🏼

    No Worries

    Really well done, Bjorn! Enjoyed it 😊👍🏼
  19. Hi Esther! Really enjoyed the song. It has a nice energy. It was mentioned here that the vocals may be a bit up front. Obviously these are matters of taste specific for whatever or target market and audience are. If you wanna explore some of the feedback of our fellow KWalkers here, there’s a fairly easy trick to keep vocals up front but more inside the mix. If you roll off the bottom end with a high pass and a -6db curb from about 300-400 Htz before compression, it takes away some of the proximity effect of the mic.. This normally helps the lead vocals sit in the mix without having to compete for dynamics. You can sweep the frequency higher or lower until you find the sweet spot in your specific mix. It’s all a matter of taste, of course. Great job already. Love your voice and your energy. The song is ready. Be well. 😊
  20. Hi Treesha! Great job! I loved it. 😉👍🏼 Nice stew (of free stuff) Best of luck with the fires and I hope you and yours stay safe 🙏🏼
  21. Thank you so much, Nigel! Especially about the vocals. I think they are the hardest thing to approach for a singer/songwriter since we have never heard the song sung by anyone else before we step up to the mic lol Bummer about the mastering in streaming services, huh? Thank you so much for listening 🙏🏼
  22. Thanx Tom! That was a hard choice. It’s so tempting to cover up imperfections with pads lol. Thank you for getting in there Warm regards 😊
  23. Found out on my own 🤙 BandLab mastering does the same as SoundCloud. Guess it's back to the drawing board-or rather the mixing board 😉
  24. Thanx guys. Has anyone tried BabdLab mastering yet? I know the one from SoundCloud only crunches up the mix and then adds volume. How’s BandLab?
