THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTIONS (WITH FIXES)

Recommended Posts

Here is a kind of rockin', pop-ish song.  The subject in this song is absolutely thrilled with his lover.  It has undergone a number of iterations since I wrote it (a long while ago) for my wife.  This is the latest version.

I have applied some techniques that are new and/or different for me (e.g., Q values for EQ, panning, high pass) and hopefully this will address some of the issues that I have had previously.

As always comments, suggestions, crit's, etc. will be much appreciated.  I hope you enjoy.

This is a cool rockin' blues song Freddy - as always, I enjoyed your vocal (especially the harmonies) and the lyrics are excellent.  By the way, this might be the best mix I've heard from you - nicely done.

Hey Freddy, another good demo of another good song from you -- that catalog keeps growin' -- my only nit is that the different reverbs kinda compete in places -- a smear so to speak.  😉-- Allan.

Thank you Douglas.  You are most kind and I appreciate the encouragement!!!

Hi Allan and Jack.  You may have read some of my whining, in previous posts, about my relationship with MIDI, synths, etc.  I knew something was a wee bit off in this song but I could not exactly place it.  Being a suspicious sort of person, I immediately suspected the MIDI piano.  I was struggling with its latency.  I figured that if I put this song on the forum  surely some one would catch it and help.  I was right and  took your advice and re-recorded the guitars panned left and right.  I think that might have addressed most of the suggestions that you made.  At least to these tired old ears it does sound a bit better.  The bass and drums were brought up a bit and sounded OK on my system but after loading it up on SoundClick they still sound as if they could come up just a bit more.  Thanks very much for listening and offering the suggestions!!

Hi tom.  Thank you very much my friend!  I have only one good thing that I can say about the  CoVid pandemic --- it has given me much more spare time to play with my guitars and Cakewalk by BandLab  (hmmm, I have never been that much of an optimist before ☺️).  Thanks again!

Nice positive message.  Do you play all instruments?  I  get an extra  song when the next one plays from your website.  I could listen to your stuff all day long.

Hi David.  Thank you very much for the kind comments - very much appreciated!!  I am guilty of trying to play all the instruments.  The exception is the drums.  I used some WAV clips from Beta Monkey for this song! 

BTW, I really enjoyed your recent post!! Nice work.

I recently signed up with Sirius radio and  I listen to the 50s station pretty often. This song would fit right in I think. I always like your music, Freddy.
