    Two thumbs up! I'd rather not be the loch ness monster, though, because I really don't think I would go well on a pizza. But thanks for offering

    Hey thanks a lot everyone!

    MessianicDreams, good ear man... I'm pretty sure that's the same beat from "Give it away"... I also used some RHCP tone presets.

    Axeman, cool you liked your part, being a key component of the high speed car chase and all! I'll have to figure what I did different here because I don't have any new gear or anything, but it sounds better to me as well on everything.

    Grey Angel, thanks for the listen! We'll just call you one character for now and we'll call the first post a typo, hehe

    Gorty, you the down under guitar freak with dangerously quality newsletters... keep up the good work! Hope you're cool with the new line at the end of Zed thirty two stealing your kangaroo!

    True, thanks girl! Yeah I even got some of your lyrics in there too, with the spank shed faction and all. It was fun getting everyone in And see Dogman gets his beer stolen and now he's counteracting by wanting to add some of his own vocals... might be scary

    Dogman, have fun man, whatever you want!

    Thanks again everyone!

    Signature Snakedog tune man - I have to say you're getting better with every mix! This tune rocks! And the lyrics are choice too! Love the horns on this - big Chicago sound. Nice rhythms and solos on the guitars. The vocals have great effects on them - what are you using to get that cool vibe?
    Lots of tracks - each adding to the cool sound - I like!

    Thanks a lot I'm going to try to get some more horns in my songs, I like how that turned out.
    For the vocals I recorded two takes of almost the same thing, then panned them each 15% to the left and right channel. That's why they aren't always exactly together... each take has a different level of reverb too.

    For this song I tried to get a real heavy red hot chilli peppers style bass sound to drive the song and I also compressed it differently at the end... I like how it turned out... I guess what I'm saying is that I'm always learning around here

    Nice man. Sorry I didn't post sooner haven't been home much. I love that groove with the bass. Vocals sound good, alot of energy. I like the chorus (about 1:20) alot, flows real nice. This is way too cool man, i like this alot. Sorry i don't have more comments but ive listened a few times and im sure ill listen more. Sounds like alot of fun like usual with you. Great tune.

    take care

    That's a blast... incredible vocal and arrangement. Hot guitar work. Great brass bits and drum sound ...the drums maybe could be sync'd up a tad in a couple spots. I'd use a little less limiting (might be the Soundclick compression) and reduce the high mid's of the vox a touch.

    Hey thanks a lot Tim and Gary, I appreciate the listens and comments

    Gary, thanks, glad you enjoy the groove... this song was a ton of fun to record and I think one of my favorites yet to play. I like how it turned out and might mess around with some more stuff like this soon, keep the funk rollin Maybe expand on the horn stuff and so on...

    Tim, thanks for the kind words. I'll mess around with the upper mids on the vox. I know the least about mixing vocals, so any tips help. Also, I'm not sure about the compression/limiting, I tried some new things with this track and really like the way it sounds on CD burned at 320kB or the wav file, I think the 128kb soundclick file noticably loses some of the quality, so maybe that's what you're hearing, maybe not.

    Cheers guys

    Bam slam!

    Love it, one of my favorites you've done
    ultra funky 80s snake shake! The riff is there, drives the funk like a drunk monk. (that's a compliment) The riffs are cool!
    Yeah, what effects are you running in that 80s car chase scene, I love em, and something sounds differet
    I looooove the 3:21 part, intense! Awesome song, keep playing because this is fun to listen to! We should redo, "Chicago Gangster Legend" this song has a similar feel
    Only negative is that I'd bring up the ______ in the mix
