"G" flat Funk Fest

Recommended Posts

 Hello , I'm proud to be posting a new high energy funk song on my 68th birthday !   I used my G&L thru TH3 , MT Power drums , HaNon B70 organ synth , and finally restrung my Ibanez bass. Amazing what new bright strings will do. Any and all mix suggestions are welcomed .  "Thanks" ..   mark

So much goodness. Punchy kick! Melange of impeccably mixed guitars. Sollllllid bass!

Your tunes challenge the listener to keep track of all the elements at once, which I like. On this one I could only suggest pulling the business of the drums back just a bit, to give more listeners a chance to hear onto the wonderful thicket of those funk guitar parts!!! And I thought I heard some additional bass guitar improv, up on the neck?

Cool jam, and the fade at the end was a good choice.

Another cool tune! Love your stuff. That kick is so fat and good sounding.  Very good job on the bass too, the playing and the recording. What did you run the bass through?

@DeeringAmps @Tim Smith Thanks for the listen , comments and the birthday comments. I'm glad to have made it this long. @PhonoBrainer Thanks for your time and suggestion. My first Real time using the drums. It seems they're either simple or wide a** open. I'll look at it. @KurtS I Really appreciate the comment. The bass was direct in , with some pro channel EQ , minor hall reverb from Breverb and comp. from "Kotelnikov" (free Fantastic mastering compressor) I thought the hall reverb was an unusual choice but made it really come alive .       Later ..  mark

Mark . . . such youthful energy for the big 68 ! Happy B'day. There's lots of action here, popping guitar strings, nice underlying theme that recurs. Tom fills, lots of different tom fills . . . very nice. So, yes . . . G flat, not usually a guitar friendly key . . . can you assure us that no capos or alternate tunings were harmed during the creation of this ? In other words, WOW, great stuff as always.

I just picked up a pair of Audeze Sine headphones really cheap.  This sounds magnificent on them.  You've got energy in all the right places.  Love the drums.  What are *mt power drums?*

@Fred's Gratis Scores @jack c. @noynekker @David Sprouse and @Wookiee Thanks so much for listening and the comments. As "usual" this one started off as a vocal song that turned into an instrumental. Thus the reason for the flat tuning. I just dropped the guitars down a half step. Not as many white keys to worry about either on my controller for the organ parts. David the drums are MT Power kit 2. A free and unusual drum synth. All the preprogrammed stuff included is 3 bars long then you can choose what fills you want for the 4th bar or cut it up how you like. Lots to choose from. Wookie , I think I bought that bass about 12 years ago at a pawn shop. The strings were pretty dead at that time , I thought it was supposed to sound that way. My other bass wants new string now..  Be careful ,  and you'll make it to February..      mark

The organ goes really well with the guitars. I'm pretty sure that if I started practising guitar every day from now, that I still wouldn't be able to play as well by the time I'm 68 - great playing and mix as usual!
