Hi Bat - yes sounds good but as you say a few arrangement things to finish - hope that goes well

Rock & Roll🤘the slide guitar sounds really cool.

hey joad!

yea, rock and roll! kinda what this is, pretty basic tune,

the slide at the end was fun to play, but i think i captured all the harsh of the slide,

and none of the richness and prime tone...

but it's funny, that's the ONLY thing i heard on the outro of the song,

like maybe, i should have played slide thru the whole thing! LOL

Another well crafted, well played tune.  -they always are.

This one reminded me of some of the bands I followed in my youth.

Well done!

Minor comment - I think the bass sounds a little to antiseptic (for my tastes in this genre)

Think: Gary Thain 🙃

I'll hold the like for the final mix.

ha! tom,

this might be the only one you get to hear, til i put it on little shiny disc thingys!

 

but thanks for listening all the same,

 

i typically make changes, add stuff, take stuff away, to my 'final' mixes that i put out for consideration, 

then they are part of the 'album' which i'll release digitally,

because NO ONE buys cd's anymore!! ugh

thanks for the listen.

i may work on the drums a bit more, and tweak the arrangement a bit.

Always quality tunes @batsbrew !  Bass sounds a little low to me, and this one seems to need to be beefed up with a layer or two more IMO  ...if you want the minimalist feel, then I retract my statement :)

hey nigel!

yea, the arrangement things will probably fly right past most everyone,

but it will scratch an itch for me.

wow, gary thain name drop!

don't hear that one very often, and i'm a fan! LOL

yea, i wanted the bass to be skinnier on this one, because it's so fat on the other songs from this set...

 

but i did play around with the bass tones some, since i posted this,

i have two parallel bass tracks, summed together, and on ONE of them, i put a waves J37 tape saturation effect, and this both fattened and slightly distorted the tone a bit, and brought that track up a bit, which fills out the bass more.

 

definitely NOT a Thain heavy bass track, but more in that direction.

thanks for the ideas!

hey hockeyjx! thanks for listening and commenting

yea, bass was too low, i'm working on that one. i have two tracks of bass, summed to mono,

and one is clean and midrangy, the other is low...

i've placed a tape emulator across the midrangy bass track, which has compressed it slightly, and overdriven it slightly, 

and when mixed with the other track, has fattened the bass up nicely and made it a bit more aggressive.

that should 'beef' it up a bit like your suggesting.

 

i don't want to add any more instrumentation, because i feel it's already busy enough, and i'm looking for skinnier mixes for this particular set of songs to go on a new album.

 

but, if i didn't pan the rythm guitars hard left right, and brought them inwards a smidge, 

that changes the entire 'thickness' of the track, without quite as much separation...

 

i'm on the fence about that move, because it's so clear right now...

but THAT might make the mix seem more thick, without adding anything.

 

food for thought,

thanks!

TNX for the interest, eric.

not sure when the album will be complete, i have two other projects going in parallel,

so the album work just gets done in between breaks of the other projects.

 

i have a target of 9 songs,

i have 4 complete, and 2 in the works.
