    Garyyyy!!! 👋🏼😃

     Thank you so much for helping me with the objective listen and the comments. I really appreciate it. 
    What are you working on?  When do we get to hear your next piece? 
     

    I am working on a few tracks for people within the forum.
    Having a lot of fun and learning a lot.  🙂

    I have nothing planned as of yet for myself.

  4. I thought this was really good.
    Loved the vocal and harmonies.

    In my head I cant imagine sounding another way..  I think you made the right decision with way it is,
    I also agree with a little more bass...  but I dont know anything about this style of music... just personal taste.


  5. Very good Anders.

    I have one of those Gretch guitars..   mine the is the Brian Setzer version,,, bright orange 🙂
    Nice groove on the bass...

    Well done.

  6. Hi Folks.
    Just wanted to put the record straight here..

    I think what I was trying to say didn't come across very well.
    The written word is not one of my skills but I was trying to be helpful.

    I thought more people would respond to threads if you commented more on other peoples threads.
    I check nearly every post on the songs forum and try to give people a "like" as encouragement.
    But to keep getting a "tt" stops me going back to that post... hence it is missed.

    Batsbrew...  there is no such thing as bad publicity..  and people will be checking in now 🙂

  7. Hi Tom.
    I missed this one.

    I always look forward to your productions as I learn a lot from them.

    Your use of panning, delay, and use of eq is amazing to my ears and I make note of the subtleties to add to my learning skills.
    Do you use automation?  You just have a liveliness to your mixes.
    I'm experimenting with automation now.. but it gets pretty hot on the mix buss quickly.. so I drop the automation I have done about 10% and that puts it back in the ball park again.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Gary

    Great rendition and loved the vocal! As it happened, I had it cranked in volume, and found some sibilance along the way in the vocal, you might not notice it at lower volumes . . . might be worth a check. Could just be my system or some such. Loved the pedal steel, is it real?

     

    Your vocal is the real deal!

     

    cheers,

    -Tom

    Thanks mate....
    The pedal steel is not reel!


  9. After listening back again this morning I take back my comments about the drift.
    When listening again with fresh ears... I think its very good.

    I had been listening to other music..  which was very on time and the drift really stood out and thats all I could hear.
    Maybe that's because you mentioned it!!
    Also not knowing much about jazz either didn't give me really the authority to comment.

    I love the voice... really well done.

  10. HI Mark I love your voice mate.
    Your one of the most talented musicians on here..

    We all paint different pictures but myself I would drop the vocal a little in volume..
    Not sure about the drift..

    i listened to the Master....your voice rocks, you got it....harmonies are good but the voice singing with you is too low to get a good read on some of the time (this is called nitpicking lol!!!!)....the music sounds great....this recording is ready for market as far as my ears and wallet can tell....Good Luck!!!! 🔊🎤🎸🥁

    Thanks Larry.
    On some forums I am a member off  (mixing ones) the vocal is said to be too loud and should be around snare level.
    This is why I feel my way around asking for various opinions.

    Joe Meek said "If it sounds good it is good"..  I am beginning to trust my own instincts except when its myself in the spotlight 🙂

    Wow, Gary, you've been blessed with a wonderful voice and you know how to use it. Excellent recording.
    Hope you get all the success you deserve.
    -Bjorn

    Thank you Bjørn.
    But I dont do it for a career now.
    I used to be proff singer many moons ago but not big time..  just club and hotels.
    Music is my joy and mixing too.

    I dont think I could handle being famous... the temptation would be too much!!

    Gary, you want to take a listen to a song of mine and maybe decide if you'd like to sing it for me?

    sure... send it through
