I love this.... the atmospheric synths to open it up, and then it goes into that classic rock sound I expect from you.  Great playing and vocal performances as well.  Great work!

I think this song should be used in "Stranger Things"

some sounds i got from NASA!

 

thanks

coooooooooooool sounds of those 60's.jack c

hey jack! yea, some of those sounds were cool nasa sounds, but most were sounds i created using soft synths and a lot of tweaking.

 

kinda gives it the old sci-fi vibe!

Epic intro, clever lyrics and perfect waa guitar too - nice one.

thanks kevin!

the intro was fun.... i didn't want it too long, but it had to be long enough to elicit the right vibe before diving into the abduction~~~!!

 

LOL

 

the wah, i wasn't planning on doing a wah part, but as i hit 'record' and walked to the pedalboard, i blindly stepped on the budda wah, and just starting going. that was an off the cuff, in the moment solo, i was planning to over write, but kept it.

Hi Bat

As per usual great guitar playing

enjoyed the song

cool

Nigel

 

thanks so much nigel

 

the guitars were fun, because i was trying out a new technique that i really don't normally use,

to play the rhythms..

and it forced me to really really focus on the timing of the rhythm parts, because i wanted them to boogie...

slightly back beat, if you know what i mean...

and you have to play those parts consistently, or it just doesn't work rhythm wise.

 

once i got it, it was fun to push and pull the groove based on simply plucking the strings with my fingers, instead of using a pick.

i'll keep refining that style/method, it's fun to do. gotta have the gain structure right on the amp, tho....

heh! i don't about that,

but sometimes happy accidents happen, that just work out!

 

i like that aspect of recording, i just try whatever, if it works, great, if not, i just record over it.

i've learned to NOT be precious about recording stuff.

 

i used to think that the 1st takes were always best,

but honestly, i think you can always improve on any take. but there is something about spontaneity

For some reason, the intro made me think of George Romero and Night of the Living Dead.  And then the guitar hits, and that was a really awesome shift in tone.  Really well done.

so nice of you to listen and comment, jw

 

thanks

it was a pretty cool arrangement to work with,
getting things to build exactly the way i wanted it to,
took some serious "methodology"

this one, i actually worked out the arrangement on paper,
before i even started writing the music!

i think i'll continue on that path, i've done 5 albums now, working out stuff 'on the fly',
so this is a new approach for me.
