That's a fun mix and you don't hear hard rock hoedowns that much. Plenty creative.

Around 1:48 in the background there's like a harmonica lead, or a crowd, or a cat wailing, or? Pretty low in the mix but I think it monkeys up things. I guess its a feature of the chorus? It kind of comes and goes.

Great ending! A very creative piece. Maybe play with a little more reverb on violin, so it matches the rvb of the drums and guitar? I dunno. Still pretty cool.

 

cheers,

Thanks Tom. That's the harmonica (first took the lead earlier in the set).

I tried more reverb on the fiddle, but (I think) the drier setting brings it forward in the mix.

Thanks for the feedback, glad you enjoyed it.

Regards

Jerry

Toe tapper for sure.  Really nice arrangement of traditional and rock. I wouldn't have guessed there's a polka in there.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, much appreciated.

As you hear, it wasn't a polka by the time I'd finished with it.

I takes a lot of hard work to get it to sound as rough as that.

Thanks Old Joad.  Charlie Daniels was the "Devil went down to Georgia", IIRC?

Cheers
