SONG: Shedding

Recommended Posts

Hi,
Here's my first Coronavirus Lockdown output.

It's called "Shedding" and you can here it here:
https://soundclick.com/r/s8ddlt

This one features FUZZ - as in real Fuzz pedals 😉
Played with my Strats and Tele (sometimes through a Leslie)
Trilian Acoustic Bass
Superior Drums
The usual Suspects...

Please let me know what you think...

Don't forget - Download CDs (including my newest one "Pull the Other One")
Are still available at https://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/JohnBraner
and all the normal streaming services.
CDBaby won't be selling physical CDs anymore - so just contact me if you want one - or look on Amazon or Apple etc.

Overall I'm in at 1/2 a 👍.
I've mentioned on the forum before when I see a tune this long I'm looking for ways to shorten it up.
I noticed you tagged it "Instrumentals - Film Music" so I can see it playing under the credits as I exit the auditorium.
And at the 5ish minute mark things changed...
But that's my 1/2 a 👍 rationalization.

Which kit in Superior?
Maybe shoulda asked that first 🙃?
MODO sounds pretty damn good.

Won't ask which fuzz, frankly I don't miss my Arbiter atall.
You did certainly get usable tones, that I must admit.

Hi Tom,

Thanks a lot for listening and for your comments.

First of all, I made a major f*&% up - it's not MODO (that's the next somg) it's the Trilian Acoustic Bass! (I edited the original post).

Drums are a DW kit from the Darkness SDX (my fav at the moment).

I know nobody likes long songs - but I do. And this is supposed to be like coronavirus - so it sticks to you and won't go away ;)

Love this John.  You're using the musical space better than  in some of the past songs .  Horowitz intimated  the magic  is in the pauses,the  silence is just as important as the sound.

Hi David,

Thanks a lot for listening and for your comments. Maybe I'm slowly learning something ;)

The smallest of crits is the drums feel too dry (for my taste).  Maybe just a smidge of verb on the snare would give it some flavor.

Guitar fuzz tone is retro-cool. Tones changeup was welcomed. 

Moody and foreboding for sure.

Hi Bapu - thanks a lot for listening and for your comments.

Drum reverb is a tricky one - I'm not a big fan of too much reverb - on anything ;)
