  1. You're on fire Tom, keep them coming, loving your work. 😂😂 Andy
  2. Incredible. I love the drum track on this and the playing is so tight with a great mix as well. I could listen to that for hours - terrific stuff. Thanks for sharing - very enjoyable. Andy
  3. Great groove, great chops, great story. Another one in the back of the net! You can file this one under 'done'. 👍 Andy
  4. Colin, just wow - awesome? I absolutely loved every second of that. Shades of Dance On A Volcano with all that staccato (I hope you don't mind the reference). Fantastic chops all round - link to the album please, where can I hear more? Absolutely top draw. Andy
  5. First impressions are good - a full size interface at last (where has that been)? There's a lot to explore under the hood. The audio import - not sure I'll use that too much. Midi keys import to LH worked well (mostly) but to RH chords was too busy (will depend on the song). It gives you a base (no pun intended) but you'll have to do some editing to get a really good result. That said, all my usual bass tracks have two things in common: they're out of time and dull as ditch water; so this can already accomplish a whole lot more than I can using a vst and a midi controller. Definitely going to be one of those products it's worth investing the time in to learn it properly. Overall, I'm happy with my new toy. Can it replace a real, live competent bassist? On balance I would say not - at least not when they're sober - but how often is that? 😂😂 Andy

    Make me Smile

    Brilliant production and a another killer vocal - great work. Andy

    COVID Situation

    Has a slight Chris Rea feel, I thought - dark indeed but I kind of liked it. Have to agree about the production: top drawer and you really nailed the vocal with the delay effect. Very well done Andy

    "Tin Foil Hat"

    That is a piece of sheer genius and the best thing I have ever heard on this forum - bar none. Brilliant! Andy
  9. Great work Daryl - so difficult to synchronise this stuff and get anywhere even close - but with this you can't even see or hear the joins - brilliant stuff. Congrats to all involved. Andy
  10. I was betting Martin or Taylor - sounded great
  11. Wow what a great song, not heard that before. I don't think you needed the additional instruments either - this song is all about the vocal and you 100 per cent nailed it. Sublime vocals and BGVS too, also enjoyed the guitar work - what's the acoustic you're playing BTW - I have a feeling I might know but would be interested to find out? Really lovely stuff, look forward to hearing more. Andy
  12. Excellent and all tell-tale signs - especially #3 & #4 I'm guessing you also don't wait at the door when you visit because you know when to come in. Oh no, hang on, that's the vocalist not the bass player. 😉😂
  13. +1 to this, I always struggle with a decent bass line, sas a fan of the Toontrack family I'm keen to see what this can do - looks great so far. Andy
  14. Certainly nailed that prog vibe, you even snuck in the obligatory keyboard solo. 😂

    Some Days

    Simply sublime - loved it. Andy
  16. Clever stuff - love the breakdown too - brilliantly observed take on the current situation with the usual immaculate production standards. Keep safe and well, Andy
  17. Great tone on the lead guitar, I'd like to drive that rhythm guitar just a bit harder but it's very personal thing, I also think a bit more reverb would lift the vocal a touch - great track though - another keeper. Andy
  18. That is sweet, love the panning and the little reprise right at the end. Great work as always and right on the money. Andy

    Take Me As I Am

    Cheers David, you're right - it's a well-trodden theme for sure. I guess this is just my take, thanks for the listen and the suggestions re structure. Thanks Tom, no worries on being essential - better to be needed, than not - right? Appreciate the listen and the critique. Ha, that's funny Douglas, cos I actually dialled down the drums before I did this mix - just shows - you never can tell how it's going to sound. Thanks for listening. I'll have another listen to that kick part, swapping it for a different bass drum or beater might help, No mic on this guitar - it's a Taylor 314 DI'd via the Taylor ES2 on-board system with a touch of FX - high-pass is a good shout, I'll look at this. Agree on the instrumental - definitely one bar too long. Appreciate the comments - really helpful stuff. Andy

    Take Me As I Am

    Prepare yourselves, this is a bit of a rough mix but as a designated key worker here in the UK (not in our fantastic NHS, I hasten to add), life's been a bit busy of late and will doubtlessly be so for a while to come. However I am not complaining, as there are many in a much worse situation than me - I'm glad to be working at all right now. I do hope you're all keeping safe and well. This is my latest effort - another stock EzKeys track that I simply love so I haven't done much to it, only some very subtle changes - I will probably add a bass track but it doesn't need a lot more instrumentation wise I don' think. There are multiple timing issues on this - I think mainly down to the acoustic guitar track that I need to re-cut and the BGVs; I'm not sure about the long instrumental either and whether it's even in the right place or needed at all - so all critique welcome. As for the back story on this one - it's complicated... Andy
  21. Is there any style or genre you can't play? Got to agree with Tom, that bass tone is to die for but you have a Joe Walsh sound on that guitar that I just love - reminded me of Life In The Fast Lane One crit - too damn short! Andy
  22. Well that's the strangest thing I've watched this week, but hey it's only Tuesday and we live in very strange times indeed. 😂 Loved the instrumental - don't dial that guitar down for me, I thought it sounded just great (was that a 12 string - if not what FXs are you using)? As for the video - dentists make me shudder (yeugh) but once I got past that I thought it was pretty cool - 'anti-music video describes it pretty well I reckon. Keep up the great work Andy
  23. Steve, apart from the instrumentation, vocally this is such a tough song to cover. You did a great job. Andy
  24. Brilliant as usual. I'm an unashamed fan. Andy
  25. Great track - I'd like to have heard the violin share more airtime with the nylon guitar but that's just the guitarist in me - the vox are absolutely top drawer. Andy
