Give Me A Little Loving

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody,

This is a track off of my new album "A Gray Colored Sky".  I mixed it in Cakewalk by BandLab and mastered it with Ozone 9. The lead guitar tracks are the first time I've used my new Telecaster (I bought it used). Thanks for listening and all comments and critiques are welcome.

Here it is:

I’m hearing a little Stones  on this one, but I’ve said in the past I think Doug is Doug. Sounds like you’re enjoying that tele! I do think you need to check your timing on the outro though, that one guitar is just a bit late (early?) sounds “off” to me.

Hey Doug, yeah, a cool 60s feel on this -- if you revisit the mix, perhaps take a listen to the eq -- some warmth could be added to the mix. ~~Allan

The vocals made me think instantly of Tom Petty. Nice job on song construction and it sounds like you're having fun on that telecaster...

David Sprouse - Thank you very much for listening - yeah I liked the Kinks growing up - cheers.

DeeringAmps - Thank you very much for your comments - I'll give the outro another listen.

ABull - I'll give the mix another listen and perhaps add a bit more warmth to the mix.

Old Joad - Thank you very much for listening to my tune.

congalocke - Thanks for listening - the Telecaster definitely adds a different flavor on lead.

Cool! I got an imagination journey back to my youth at listening to this song.

A nice sixties pop rock . Sounds great.

Thanks Makke - I came up with the main lick on my 12 string, and it developed from there - it was a fun song to do.

Douglas, this is another strong song from you.  It really has that 60's vibe in both the style and production of this song.  I wonder how this would sound if you uploaded a 16/44.1 track rather than an MP3.  SoundClick will take a CD quality mix now, but even a higher sampling rate for the MP3 might let us know how you hear it better.  Personally, I don't think it needs much attention because you've already done the hard part,  keep up the good work!

martsave martin s - Thanks for giving my song a listen.  That lead guitar on the bridge is my Telecaster through THU - I think THU is a really cool guitar plug.  I used to use PodFarm - but THU blows it away.

Lynn - I use iTunes for the conversion from wav file to mp3 - I'm going to see if I can use something different for better quality. Like you said, SoundClick takes CD quality mixes now - perhaps it's time for a change.  I'm glad you liked the song - cheers.

Man, you are channeling Ray Davies here, with a dose of the Beau Brummels.  I really like the way you handle the vocals.  Great playing as well.
