Hi Everybody,

This is a blues number off of my double album "Relics". Any comments and critiques are welcome, and thanks for listening.

Here it is:

Great song douglas.  I liked the hard panning of the two guitars.    And then the third solo down the middle, it was satisfying. Do you have a band?  It'd be fun to see you live.

I think its one guitar hard panned left with the delay hard panned right (until the solo); I think.
Maybe Doug will clue us in. But I do agree David, its very effective.

👍

Thanks for listening David. I don't have a band at this time - I'm just writing songs and producing them in Cakewalk - I find it to be a lot of fun. I used to do open mics, but I'm an early bird now, so I don't bother anymore.

Thanks for listening Tom - I panned the lead guitar parts at 40 to the right on the prechorus and 50 to the right on the verse. At the end, I panned the lead guitar to 50 on the left. On the intro, breaks and the solo it's up the middle.

Can't find anything to really crit on this song Doug. Good old blues type vibe and the guitar tones are spot on for this kind of track.

Love that guitar- what LUFS do you shoot for in your master?

Thanks for listening.  What I usually do is bounce down the tracks to a stereo master - making sure I'm not pushing the master fader levels too hard. I then used Ozone 9 on this one on the stereo track - which adds a bit of punch and increases the gain a bit. I go by ear, so there's no definite level I shoot for. Since I'm doing albums, I try to make sure all the songs are close regarding the volume.

Love the bluesy guitar work here Doug.  You make it sound just like it should sound. Great job.

Great Bluesy sounds that sound as they are coming from the sophisticated side of Chicago south.  I could almost fee the concussion wave from those toms and bass pedal (cool).   Well done!

Thanks for listening Nigel. The lead guitar was my Gibson Les Paul plugged directly into a Focusrite Scarlett audio interface. The guitar vst was Overloud TH-U - I think the amp was the '62 Fender Brownface Deluxe for the lead. I've been pretty happy with TH-U as an amp sim for my songs.

Got your blues groove on with this one @Douglas Kirby.  I enjoyed the whole thing.

Only thing I would say on the mix is I think Ozone 9 is over squishing it as the meters on my mixer are pretty much pegged in place for the duration.

I've always liked the way you leave it all out there, and this song does that in spades!  I've not heard a song from you that I don't like, so you're on to something.  Keep up with the raw energy and passion, I think it's your trademark.
