    very kind words timbo, thanks so much. one day, i may re-mix this to feature the drums more, cuz yea, he's kickin' butt on this one. as far as mix choices, sometimes i just want something to dominate for a reason... maybe it's the meaness of the vibe, or sweetness, but i'm not afraid to move something front and center, that does not jive with 'typical' mix approaches, i figure, be brave. why not.

    thanks kev! that's funny, def leppard, i followed them from on thru the night, up to probably hysteria, liked listening to them, but i'd be hard pressed to find any song of theirs, that sounds like this.... it's interesting how people hear certain things, that slide right past me, and i love to hear the variety of things people DO hear, so thanks for sharing that!

    hey doug!! ha, well, the thing with the intro, how it hit YOU, is exactly what i was going for. for me, it's a juxtaposition of the lyric... the intro is the 'trouble', the thing that needs to be worked out. the 2nd half, is the 'working it out' phase. now, this drummer, like i said before, is a top notch player out of the D/FW area, and has played with the symphony, many bands in the area, lots of studio work... a lot of his tracks were done in only one or two passes, playing on top of my demos. it worked out very well. thanks so much for listening!

    this is true, there are many 'deep cut' albums that work so well with the flow of the album that the artist intended. i've never done 'one offs' or singles, i always write material with a vibe or a theme, hence the name of the album 'trouble', and the song 'work it out'. it's cool if folks don't care about that stuff, the songs stand on their own all the same.

    yea, leave em wanting more!! heheh, i think that only worked on one of my songs. LOL the snare, i love that snare, maybe i mixed the drums on this too weak. the drummer was so spot on. a great player, a degreed guy from dallas ft/worth area

    alright jack! a vote for not re-arranging it! i like it! heheh these guitars were recorded using a tube amp head, several different 1x12 cabs with different drivers, and a good ole sm57 on the cone. all effects came from the guitar pedalboard. in otherwords, standard studio stuff, no tricks. the mastering was originally done in Sonar, and i used Waves Plugins for mastering. LPMBC, L2 Limiter, LPEQ, and that's it. yea, purple.... it's a good thing to listen to before tracking the 2nd part!! thanks andy

    hi 53mph (that's just a bit too slow for me on the highway) heheh... faith no more, wow, haven't heard that name dropped before, i liked their early stuff. in my opinion, the good stuff was the beginning... the 2nd half was almost like a toss off!! but i appreciate the comments, i'm glad you checked this one out

    hey wook! i don't think the intro is too long... i think it's just right!! but yea, the idea that a song like this jumps in, hits quick, and gets out, works in relation to the song that is before, and after it, on the album. listen to it as a whole, and it makes perfect sense. and that's how it was written to work.

    thank you nigel, for listening, and commenting i think the intro is perfect the way it is, it sets a mood... when you first hear it, you don't know where it is going, that intro could have been the whole song, repeated, etc, wash, rinse, repeat... as it is, it's short, like the body of the fast part is... and without it, the song is only 2 minutes long!! heheh, but i said everything i had to say in those two minutes, so there's that. the 2nd section is fun to play, you just keep rolling those scales, riffs, whatever, they just keep rolling, then you hit the big chord and let the solo rip. a really fun tune to track
  13. hey, i missed this one!! nice... love the groove. nice drum track too!
