  1. Thanks guys! πŸ˜€ I was listening to Wind and Wuthering just last week and I never thought about the similarity of the cover shot - but it's pretty obvious now it's been mentioned. The artists you've mentioned are probably my favourites - early Genesis and Yes (along with Floyd and Zeppelin), and also Anthony Phillips (he did some excellent albums), so that means a great deal to me. Not fully sure about the Genesis link (just maybe the acoustic guitars), but when I was writing this I thought "How would Jon Anderson write these words?" And I thought the bassline was a little bit on the Chris Squire side - he was a brilliant bass player! Cheers! 🍺
  2. That is some cool guitar playing! Great song with whiffs of ZZTop and even a bit of Mr Gilmour in the middle section. Nice πŸ™‚
  3. New song I've just finished. My main Studio Projects B1 mic went noisy after a few takes, so nearly all vocal and guitars were recorded with a cheapy T Bone MB85 beta mic from Thomann (Β£35). I think it a very decent mic for the price!
  4. Fantastic voice Rex. Do you play the lap steel and fiddle as well as the guitar? Very talented if you do!
  5. Brilliant! Top quality song and sound.

    Lovely! Some nice guitar work there. Rex should be a star! Only one thing - I'm probably being picky - some of the harmonies sounded a tad loud in comparison with the main vocal at times. Might just be my old ears! πŸ™‚
  7. Hi guys. I've tried an update taking in to account Wookiee's comments. I'd really like to know your thoughts, I'm just not sure. Ta!
  8. I think I know what you mean Wookiee. When you are going your own merry way, you go down a path that you think is right, but that doesn't mean that it is right - different ears are needed sometimes. I'll try and do a new version with different drums I think.
  9. Not done a lot of recording for a while, but had a bit more time recently, so here's my 3rd song completed using Cakewalk. As always, there are some bits that I could have spent a little more time on, but I got to the point of "that's enough now!" Updated after comments : First version: Second version with different drums: After Wookiee's comments, I decided to do a different version. I've listened too much to both versions, I think I've become "ear blind", and I'm not sure what to think. I'd like you guys to let me know which version you think sounds "best". Cheers!
  10. Wow! Some serious skill right there! Fabulous playing.
  11. Cool, good job all round! Nice guitar work - does he play a "pointy" guitar? πŸ˜ƒ
  12. Nice stuff! It's like a depressed Jean Michel Jarre - in a good way
  13. Thanks for comments and suggestions guys. @David Sprouse I know what you mean about the plosives - I think I was standing too close to the mic, but didn't notice the effect till later. I thought about doing the vocals again, but thought it would be too much effort! I'm lazy πŸ™‚ @mark skinner I think I might try your suggestions. To be truthful, I've never thought about tuning snares for a particular song, but it probably makes sense. Would you say the tuning needs lowering? And I know what you mean about leaving things for a while, then returning - it's quite surprising how different things can sound!
  14. My second attempt. Not sure if I've put too much into this, and still quite green when it comes to mixing, so a little unsure about it. Some bits not quite right, but I've spent enough time on it now - I think you get to the point where you've had enough! Drives you mad messing about too much!
