  1. Hey Freddy, I like that chooglin' beat - an early 60s toe tapper fo sho. Cool use of those drum fills too -- bass could use a tad more compression I think. Another good one in the Freddy canon -- see what I did there? -- ~~Allan
  2. Man, I know -- and dread -- those feelings so you had me from the get-go. However, the song really picked up interest for me from 3:25 onward. Some very nice stuff going on there -- in fact, you could turn some of those chord changes and such into a song with vocals. It would work well, I think. ~~Allan
  3. I always find a lot to like in your instrumentals and this is no exception. The transition in sound from the dense sounding intro to the sparser verse is very nice -- my nit is that the "harmonica" sound is a bit stodgy. A different synth sound would give it more umph. As usual, I think your tracks would make a good basis for some 80s style pop tunes but that doesn't seem to be your direction. So, keep 'em comin'... ~~Allan
  4. Hey Freddy -- another very well done blues numba from you -- I can dig it. ~~Allan

    Much thanks mate, but we know that's not always the case, right?

    Hey, you've nailed that indie jam-band style down pat -- grooves right along. Mix and such were good -- this is a terrific demo for your song. Best wishes~~~~Allan

    Once Upon A Time

    Very soulful sound -- mix and arrangement is terrific -- really like the pad of voice harmonies (though I thought he might be better placed in the mix). Vocal was also very nice (Morrissey vibe?). Good wishes~~~~~Allan

    Dad's Song

    You've really got that vibe down pat with this one -- vox and such are right in the pocket. And...dare I say this...I found the guitar break to be kinda beautiful -- well thought out, very well played with ringing resonant tones. And yes, I did bob my head while listening. Good one, mate! ~Allan
  16. The thing(s) that made the Dan so incredibly great is that Fagen & Becker could write commercially catchy songs that were often bedded in intricate jazz arrangements. A tough thing to do of course. While your music doesn't rise to the level of the Dan (whose does?) it certainly does aim high in that regard. And for that I say Bravo! ~Allan

    I always have a good feeling listening to your music and this is no exception -- well mixed and the choices of instruments are interesting. That low growling bassy sounding synth fit the mix very nicely. This was a good listen mate. ~Allan

    Very nicely done -- those guitar and bass tones are super duper. My favorite was the third piece -- it flows beautifully and the arrangement/mix are top notch. Man, that piece is screaming for some vocals on it -- it would be great. ~Allan
  19. I listened to the first song -- it's a good demo but needs some work on the mix and arrangement. I liked the chorus melody (more harmonies!) and the lyric. The recording needs more definition -- all the parts are there. Wishing you the best -- Allan
  20. Tone, chops, depth of feeling...anything I forgot? ~Allan

    Funk Cello

    Your recording and mix is very good. I also like your guitar playing -- terrific tone. I enjoyed listening to this -- very well done. ~Allan
  22. Hey, terrific demo -- mix is good and everything is well performed. I think the vocals could be spread a bit in the chorus. I enjoyed this as it has an 80s feel to it -- the only nit I have was having to look at Che. ~Allan
  23. Hey Freddy -- love the sound on that harmonica -- very nice. I like the dryness of the guitar -- a funky sound that would be washed if it had more reverb. There's a slight syncopation glitch between the guitar and the vocal -- the timing of your vocal delivery sounds just a little off to me from the get-go. But it's surely another terrific demo from you. I enjoyed it. ~ Allan
