Hi Tom,

Great song which I can hear meatloaf singing in my head - fantastic rock and roll feel you've got with this one.

Amazing harp fits really well.

Thanks for sharing.

Good Job!

regards

Meatloaf, now that's a first for me.
"Amazing harp fits really well."
Jeff appreciated your comments, and sends along his thanks.

Douglas,
I'll buy a round, but I think I'll make mine a shot of tequila.
Why would a man drink beer when he can drink whiskey? :)
Has that been used as a song title?
Seriously though, thanks for listening.

Ho ho - quite a sassy number. As pointed out - its quite a blues bandy-feel.  Great harmonica licks punctuating the lead vocals.

Good honest bar-room fayre!

Old Joad, thanks for dropping by, I’ll pump up the cowbell in the next one ;-). And  please remember, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”.

Well, just to agree with everyone else, very cool bluuuuuuues. Rockin' side of blues.

 

And just to be different, I heard David Bowie-esque-ness in the chorus. Yowsa!

 

As an experiment, have you tried putting a large or  room reverb on the master bus, so everything sounds like a blues club? You have treated it pretty dry, probably lots of predelay . . . I just wonder if something more club-roomy might be a fun vibe to try out.

 

cheers, cool jam!

Tom,

David Bowie, wow, high praise indeed. (I was known to wear “glitter” and even a mini skirt once in the early 70’s, mini skirt was a parody on a JC Penny commercial “I want to look like an American”)

 Interesting thoughts/idea for a bit more live feel, I’ll have to check it out. I think my cover of “Key to the Highway” maybe has a bit more live feel, the vocal at least. 

Thanks for your input and kind words. 

Tom

Paul and Eve Ripper,

thanks to you both for listening. Clearly I’m “stuck” in the late 60’s early 70’s, but what the hay, this is my “roundhouse”.

I quite like the track Tom, the mix sounds well done but for me it does seem to lack a little bottom end weight.  I can hear the bass and the kick but.....

Nice tone, good clear vocal sound, thanks for sharing.

Hey Wookie, I have struggled with the low end “girth” on this tune it seems almost endlessly.  I finally had to move on. I have other tunes with the exact same instrumentation that just feel “fuller”. I guess this is what separates the hobbyist from the Mix Engineer. Thanks for using your furry paws to play my tune 😎

I really like the lyrics and the playing/singing is top notch.  The harmonica playing really caught my attention.

Hey, Tom,

How are you, buddy?  Hope you're doing well!👍

I've been away from the forum for a couple weeks due to being super busy at work, and just popped in for another listen to this cool song and saw your reply.

I completely agree with you, I can guarantee the Georgia Satellites weren't the first to use that classic riff.  I can remember hearing it from a lot of late 60's and early 70's blues based bands like Savoy Brown, Humble Pie, Johnny Winter and quite a few others.  It definitely fits like a glove with the style and vibe of your song and I sure wouldn't change a thing!😀

PPS: Yes, Sir, even though after playing live for multiple decades, I've always been a Les Paul guy and have quite a few other guitars, I fell in love with PRS guitars after shopping for a new Les Paul about ten years ago and testing out several new Les Pauls.  Unfortunately, at that time, even though the prices were outrageous, Gibson's quality was really suffering and all of them had various quality issues and couldn't come close to my 1971 Gold Top Deluxe, so I tried out a few PRS Guitars and ended up buying three in the past ten years!😁👍

Anyway, once again, killer job on this fun rocker, Tom, great stuff!

Have a good one!
Bob

Similar story here, always a Paul man, still have the '68 GoldTop my father bought me for my sixteenth birthday, "seduced" by a PRS '93 Custom 24 (goldtop) back in the summer of '94 (do we see a "trend" here?). There are 2 PRS' on the tune; an HBII (Amber) on the rhythm track and my "main squeeze" (Anna), a Santana II, on the lead tracks (very '59ish neck on this old girl). Thanks for the kind words and encouragement, it means a lot...

ps: biggest disappointment of my "big guitar hunt" life was a 2003, "we finally got it right!" Brazilian board R7, just not a "real" Paul, and trust me I've been chasing LP's since the late 60's, I've played, and owned, a ton of "Golden Era" Kalamazoo, MI. Gibson's.
