  1. Ah man, thanks Tom, I appreciate you saying that. This one was pretty straight forward to mix, just one vocal and really just four instruments most of the time. I do have to say the bass part was a bear. I never did get one take all the way through it, I had to do it in sections. SMALL, SHORT sections, LOL. Thanks again!
  2. Thanks very much! I seem to be able to semi-successfully mimic Fagen's delivery, which is funny since I'm a redneck from Kentucky and he's a New York hipster, but it's fun, heh heh. As for the reverb, I may have overdone it a bit, but if you listen to the original recording the vocals are fairly reverb soaked, which is unusual for a Steely Dan song. Their stuff is usually pretty dry. I don't know if that was deliberate or a result of the infamous technical issues they had with the mixing and mastering of "Katy Lied". Anyway, that's what I was going for. Thanks a lot for the listen and taking the time to comment, really appreciate it!
  3. Thanks so much, I'm really glad you enjoyed it. It's strange to think that in these days of CNC machines and such that a killer guitar could cost a lot less than the effect pedal you run it through, but here we are. Really the only things I copped from Larry's part were the intro lick, the signature lick in the verses, and the chord comping in the chorus and bridge. The rest of his stuff is actually beyond me. He does several little tasty things in there that, when you here them, you go "Damn I wish I'd thought of that!". Then you go "How did he do that?" But I love learning their tunes, there's so much good music there! Thanks again!
  4. Thanks! Yeah, they're one of my favorites, too. I don't know if I could pick a favorite album, probably whichever one I'm listening to, LOL.
  5. Appreciate it! Gotta love The Dan, I've learned so much from learning their tunes, the chord structures and composition of their stuff is amazing, and yet they make it so....accessible(?).
  6. "Katy" is one of my favorites too. Thanks a lot for the listen! Don't know if Larry would approve, but I bet he'd like the Firefly, LOL.
  7. When I'm not working on original music I like to do covers of my favorite bands. Steely Dan is a particular favorite, so here's my latest...... Daddy Don't Live In That New York City The original recording featured Larry Carlton on guitar. My apologies, Larry. BTW: The guitar I used on this track is the one pictured. It's called a "Firefly". It's beautiful. I bought it off Amazon for $139.00 brand new and stuck a set of Seymour Duncan pickups in it, and it SINGS! My bandmates call it "The Unicorn" because things like that aren't supposed to exist..... I played guitar and bass on this, and sang it. The guitar was run through a "Simble" overdrive then DI. The bass is DI. The drums are AD2. The keys are NI Vintage Organs and the basic Clavinet from Kontakt. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed doing it! All licenses and permissions obtained.
