  1. Hey, Wow, this is really a fantastic progressive instrumental rocker!πŸ‘πŸ˜€ I love the acoustic intro, and then when everything kicks in, the guitar tone, tasty melodies and playing are phenomenal. I also really liked the keyboards and great bass lines in the backing track, they really lay down a warm, well textured bed for the great guitar work.πŸ˜€ Outstanding work, brother, this is an absolute pleasure to listen to!πŸ‘ Have a good one! Bob
  2. Hey, Douglas, You've got a really cool, punchy classic rocker here!πŸ˜€ Well written, performed and sung, the layered vocals are pure dynamite, and I really loved the guitar parts, especially the solo. The guitar tone was absolutely perfect for the style of the song, and the playing was super!πŸ‘ As the guys mentioned above, this definitely has the classic Stones vibe, and the mix is right on the money for the genre. Dynamite stuff, Douglas, keep 'em coming, buddy!πŸ˜€ Have a good one! Bob
  3. Hey, Wookster, Well, it sure seems like you're healing up well, thank goodness!πŸ‘ This is a super cool bit of ambient electronica with tons of cool textures and melodies woven throughout the fresh, rich sounding mix!πŸ˜€ What I love about it is how it's both relaxing and refreshing at the same time, but always holding the listener's interest right up to the end. Excellent stuff, my friend, and keep healing and cranking out great stuff like this!πŸ˜€ Have a great weekend, Wook! Bob
  4. Hey, Tim, How are you, buddy? It's really great to see you posting a new one!πŸ‘ This is a very cool, cinematic and dramatic sounding piece of music with lots of tasty twists and turns!πŸ˜€ The composition and orchestration is absolutely top-notch, and the mix sounds clean, wide and well textured. I could easily imagine this being part of a movie soundtrack or backing for a classy documentary. Outstanding work, Tim, this is really great!πŸ‘ Have a good weekend! Bob
  5. daryl1968: Hey, Daryl, How are you, brother? Hope you're having a great weekend!πŸ˜€ Thanks so much for having another listen to this one for me, and for the very kind comments!

I always look forward to your input, ideas and comments on my stuff, and I truly appreciate your support and friendship here on the forum!😊 I sincerely hope you have a speedy and full recovery from your recent surgery, although you must be well on your way because your new song post, "Ghost on the Glass" was really great! Nice work, John.πŸ˜€πŸ‘ Thanks again, Wook, greatly appreciated! Bob
  7. Hey, Daryl, How are you, my friend? Hope you're doing well!πŸ˜€ You and the current Mrs. D did a super job on this tasty Brit Pop Rocker!πŸ‘ As always from you two, excellent playing and production work, and perfect pop rock vocals and harmonies. Patty also did a nice job with the well-written, clever call and response type lyrics. The mix is clear, wide, fresh sounding, and definitely radio-ready! Outstanding work, Daryl. it's always great to hear a new Staypress song post!πŸ˜€ Have a good one! Bob
  8. Hi, John, This is a really well written and performed smooth jazz/pop rocker with outstanding vocals!πŸ˜€ I love the instrumentation and playing on this one, the melodic vocal lines are perfect for your voice, and I really loved the tasty synth and piano work. The mix is crystal clear, well textured and perfect for the genre. I could easily imagine hearing this on the radio or even as part of the backing track to a Television drama or movie.πŸ‘ Excellent work, John, really good stuff!πŸ˜€ Have a good one! Bob
  9. Hey, Jesse, How are you, buddy?

    HOLY MOLEY!!! Don't pay the ransom, my buddy Bapsi is back on the forum!πŸ˜€πŸ‘ Dynamite job on this very cool rocker, Ed! Everybody really did a super job on the instrumental performances, I really liked the keyboards at around 1:07 and 2:08, the vocals were really well done, and I loved the guitar solo work. Your well constructed bass lines sounded great and fit perfectly with Hugo's classy drum work, and the mix sounds clean and punchy.πŸ‘ Really nice work, Ed, and seriously, it's great to see you back around and posting again! And, if you happen to speak to my friend James G, please give him my regards and tell him that I said hello!πŸ˜€ Have a good one, buddy! Bob
  11. Hey, Wook, How are you, my friend? Hope you're doing well!πŸ˜€ This is a very cool piece of modern Electronica with lots of really interesting and fun twists and turns!πŸ‘ I really enjoyed the sound effects, the chanting type vocals were cool, and the energetic change up at around the 2:20 mark was really great. You always have a knack for choosing exactly the perfect synths to use for your compositions, and the mix is right on the money, as always. Isn't it amazing how certain everyday events can instantly inspire musical creativity? Great stuff, John, really well done!πŸ˜€ Best wishes, Bob
  12. Old Joad: Hey, Joad, How are you, brother? It's always great to hear from you!πŸ‘ Big thanks for checking out the video for me, and also for your very encouraging words! I greatly appreciate your input, observations, support and friendship here on the forum, and it really means a lot to me!πŸ˜€ Thanks again, and have a Rockin' week, buddy!πŸ‘ Bob
  13. Johnbee58: Hey, John, How are you, my friend? Hope you're doing well! Thank you very much for having a look at the video for me, and also for your input, observations and very kind words!πŸ˜€ I'm truly grateful that you liked the song and video, and appreciate you checking it out and commenting!πŸ‘ Have a good one, buddy! Bob
  14. amiller: Hey, How are you? It's really great to hear from you!πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for checking out the video for me, and also for that GIANT compliment!!!πŸ˜€ Even as far back as Blackmore's Rainbow" and right on through to Ronnie's solo band, quite a few of my cover bands did Dio songs, and I've always been a huge fan. I really appreciate you taking time to watch the video, and also your very kind words, sincere thanks again.πŸ‘ Have a good one, buddy! Bob
  15. DeeringAmps: Hey, Tom, How are you, buddy? Hope you're enjoying the long holiday weekend!πŸ‘ Thanks so much for checking out the video for me, and also for your very encouraging observations and comments! I truly appreciate your input, observations and support on my stuff! 😁LOL, about the phone at the end, a couple years back it occurred to me that after the decrease in landlines, many Millennials have probably never heard that "off the hook" sound due to the massive increase in use of mobile phones! Oh, well, there might be a tiny history lesson in there somewhere! Thanks again, Tom, greatly appreciated, brother!πŸ˜€ Have a good one, Bob
  16. Hey, Tom, How are you, buddy? Hope you're doing well!πŸ‘ I've been away from the forum for a couple weeks due to being super busy at work, and just popped in for another listen to this cool song and saw your reply. I completely agree with you, I can guarantee the Georgia Satellites weren't the first to use that classic riff. I can remember hearing it from a lot of late 60's and early 70's blues based bands like Savoy Brown, Humble Pie, Johnny Winter and quite a few others. It definitely fits like a glove with the style and vibe of your song and I sure wouldn't change a thing!πŸ˜€ PPS: Yes, Sir, even though after playing live for multiple decades, I've always been a Les Paul guy and have quite a few other guitars, I fell in love with PRS guitars after shopping for a new Les Paul about ten years ago and testing out several new Les Pauls. Unfortunately, at that time, even though the prices were outrageous, Gibson's quality was really suffering and all of them had various quality issues and couldn't come close to my 1971 Gold Top Deluxe, so I tried out a few PRS Guitars and ended up buying three in the past ten years!πŸ˜πŸ‘ Anyway, once again, killer job on this fun rocker, Tom, great stuff! Have a good one! Bob
  17. bjornpdx: Hey, Bjorn, How are you my friend? Hope your enjoying your weekend! Thank so much for checking out the video for me, and for your very kind comments!πŸ˜€ I truly appreciate your input, observations, friendship and support here on the forum! By the way, great job on your new video post for your wife's aunt's birthday! You came up with a beautiful combination of her artwork and a very pleasant soundtrack that fit perfectly with the video. Nicely done!πŸ‘ Thanks again, and have a great night! Bob
  18. InstrEd: Hi, Ed, Thank you very much for stopping by to have a look at the video for me, and also for your encouraging commentπŸ˜€ As I mentioned to Mark up above, that scene almost didn't happen, I'm glad I decided to hold off and think about it for a few days and didn't rush with my first idea because that and the church scene turned out to be my favorite parts of the video. And, also big bonus, any scene that my ugly mug doesn't have to be in makes me (and everybody else who sees the video) much happier!🀣 Thanks again, Ed, I greatly appreciate you taking time to check it out and comment, it truly means a lot to me! Have a great weekend! Bob
  19. mark skinner: Hey, Mark, Thanks so much for taking time to check out this video for me, and also for your very kind comments!πŸ˜€ I'm really glad you liked the candle scene, because at the time I was racking my brain trying to figure out what would convey the feel of the acoustic and vocal break and also be a smooth, softer lead-in to the chorus scene inside the church with the stained glass when everything comes back in. I originally planned to just shoot some footage with me strumming the acoustic guitar, but then I waited a few days, and the candle idea struck me like a lightning bolt, and it all just seemed to work out. Thanks again for checking out the video and the very kind words. Greatly appreciated!πŸ˜€ Have a great weekend! Bob
  20. Douglas Kirby: Hey, Douglas, how are you, buddy? Hope you're going great!πŸ‘ Sincere thanks for taking time to check out this video for me, and also for your encouraging comments, greatly appreciated!πŸ˜€ I actually had to dig out my studio log from 2013 to make sure, but for the guitars on this song I used the Washburn shown in the video through a Diezel Herbert amp model, and my PRS Paul Allender Signature Model through a Marshall JCM800 amp model in POD Farm 2.5. The solos were on the PRS. I used to use the Washburn quite a bit when I was playing live, but I think this was the first time I actually recorded with it. Thanks again for checking it out and commenting, Doug, I truly appreciate your input, observations, support and friendship here on the forum!πŸ˜€ Have a Rockin' Weekend, brother! Bob
  21. Hi, Lee, How are you, buddy? I remember you from the old forum, it's great to see you made it over here to the new one!πŸ‘ Well then, let me be the first commenter on this one!πŸ˜€ Dynamite job on this very cool, uplifting alt rocker! Really well written, great instrumental performances, excellent vocals and harmonies, and you've got a nice, wide, clean and punchy modern rock mix.πŸ‘ I also really love "Hard Landing" from your Soundclick page, fantastic song with a cool Tom Petty vibe, and the keyboards and guitar solo on it were really super. Also, "Forgive and Forget Me" was really great. Great work, Lee, fantastic stuff, brother, looking forward to your next post! P.S. Don't get discouraged, and keep posting here, it's just been a little slow around here the past couple weeks, but it should be picking up soon!πŸ˜€ Have a Rockin' Weekend! Bob
  22. Hi, Bjorn, Fantastic job on this very pleasant and uplifting video!πŸ‘ Your wife's aunt is a very talented artist, and the beautiful instrumental soundtrack that you composed fits perfectly to showcase her gorgeous artwork.πŸ˜€ I'm sure Aunt Betty really appreciated the video and had a wonderful birthday!πŸ˜€ Great work, as always, Bjorn! Have a great weekend! Bob
  23. SteveC: Hey, Steve! How are you buddy? It's really great to see you back on the forum!πŸ‘ Thanks so, much for checking this new mix out for me and for your input and very kind words of encouragement!πŸ˜€ I truly appreciate your input, observations, comments and support here on the forum. Thanks again and have a rockin' weekend, Steve! Bob
  24. Hi, Guys, I've been away from the forum for a few weeks because I've been totally swamped at work! I'm really looking forward to catching up with all the new posts here soon, but in the meantime, I just wanted to join in with the seasonal vibe and post my usual Halloween video. Check it out if you can spare a few minutes! Sincere thanks and Happy Halloween! Bob "The Dark"
  25. DeeringAmps: Hey, Tom, how are you, buddy? Hope you're having a great week!πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for checking out this mix for me (and also my 3 albums), and especially for your very thoughtful, insightful and encouraging comments! I truly appreciate your good input and observations because of the excellent quality of your song posts, and also because you've always been a true gentleman ever since I first joined the old forum back in 2008.πŸ‘ LOL, 😁 I really appreciate the kick drum comment! After multiple decades of playing "live" in many large nightclubs and outdoor venues with huge "old school" PA systems and amps, I'm used to a "cannon" kick drum and a "shotgun" snare drum. I know for recording that sort of goes against the grain, but I really try to work hard to get the big kick to play well together with the bass and deep drop-tuned guitars for a little extra punch. I totally get and couldn't agree more with your reference to the original roots of the rock music industry. I bought and read Clive Davis's first book way back when I was in high school, referencing when he was head of A & R and then president of Columbia Records, it was a great and very interesting read. The three gentlemen that you mentioned were really pioneers who helped lay the foundation of the early rock music business by signing, producing and managing the very first "rock" bands and steering them into becoming major hit makers who influenced just about every band to follow. For the past 20 years or so, since the advent of MP3s, downloads, file sharing and streaming, it seems that the record industry has been run by bean counters who are only looking for sterile, cookie-cutter "Pop" artists that they can exploit for a few years and then move on to another. LOL, 😁 I'm not ranting, I'm just agreeing with your comments about the current situation because unfortunately, we all know "it is what it is"! Thanks again, Tom, I greatly appreciate you taking time to check out the mix and your input and comments! Looking forward to hearing some more of your future song posts, my friend! Have a good one! Bob
