    My initial reaction was how warm it sounds and the I saw you mentioned Vintage Warmer and I thought no that sound can't be a plugin so I listened to the version without the plugin and I'm pleased to report it still sounds warm here. Nice fat round bottom end and the vocals rocking. Only thing I can think would make this better would be a more roomy present kick, esp in the into where it's more on its own. Nice job, just need to finish that ending off properly

    Thanks Bulls hit I got rid of the earlier mixes and this is my latest one.




    I worked on the kick a little and tried to get a little harshness out of the lead guitar. I also worked on the vocal...used a diffrent reverb and boosted the volume a tad. I also mixed in some more snare from the sm 57 snare track.
    I was country before they took the O out.

    Vocal sounds really good, way out front as it should be! Kick is verging on being too much for me. Something I noticed before, that rhythm guitar doing the boogie thing--have you got some delay on it that isn't synced with the song tempo? Maybe its a combination of dirt and ambiance, but it doesn't really seem to be locking in with the groove.

    this isnt bash but, the V1,V2 are great but the lead 1 drops out on 1:05-1:07, there needs to be a filler as is done on the verse imo...
    Lead 2 is better but when the "come around" stops, the lead needs to do more not stop....like the verse we get crazy on a saturday night...but with the guitar lick...the spotlight goes to the lead guitar when the backing rythm stops, and the lead G stops?
    just my 2cents....
    mainly listening to the bass and the Radial J48, sounds good but not a main bass type song.
    it sits int the mix really well but this music is spotlight lead guitar usually, kick/snare drums and bass are the locomotive engine...

    vocals are well done, my fav, the verb or something gets that right feel, pro sound...

    if it's not happening in the room, it ain't gonna happen on tape.-HG

    good old country rockabilly groove. I like the vocals alot. kick still has a high mid thing going on. but thats nitpicking. reminds me of all the brain cells I killed in the honky tonks around Hattiesburg growing up. good job!

    Vocal is fantastic. It needs compressing and to come down a bit. The real thing holding this back is the drums. They are a bit sloppy/rough. Low end is muddy needs hi pass. Hi pass everything but the kick and bass.

    Warm, thick, gritty, and raw, love it. It sounds great, but it feels great too, which is more important if you ask me. I think the guitar solos could actually come up a db or two, but that's up to you. It just seems the vocal way overpowers them, when they should be almost even with the vocal's level during the solos.

    I'd experiment with the "rear bus" trick on this one, it would totally help the lead guitar poke out a little more when the vocals stop, and add even more raw energy to the track. Might work well, might not, but I'd definitely try it.

    The reverb still seems a little strong, but I kinda like it. Like TripleM said, it does kind of sound like it's in stadium, but kinda sounds cool that way. I think it adds to the energy and vibe of the track. If it was too dry it wouldn't have the same impact. I've only heard the latest version, so I'm not sure how it sounded before and how much reverb you pulled out...

    The ending still needs a little work, but you're on the right track. Super cool tune dude.

    Great stuff jimi! Love the blues stuff as I am leaning that way myself more and more. Love the guitar crunch! Vocals do seem a little out front maybe just back them out a little. Good job brother

    Thanks a lot packro. I appreciate you giving it a listen!

    Thanks Johnny. I'm not familiar with the rear bus trick, but I will research it. I appreciate you giving it a listen and the comments!

    Hey Bruthish...haven't seen you in a while. Glad you're back. I dig the guitar sound on this too!
    Rock on!

    I appreciate the suggestions. I'm trying to get back to this one but I have a lot going on right now.

    I'll try to incorporate some of this on the next remix.
    Thanks for the critique!
