    I never really tried anything bluesy before so I thought I would give it a whirl. I'm not overly excited about the song structure, seems to be missing something(maybe a decent bridge, hehe). As a general disclaimer I have to say what I'm sure most(if not all)of you have said at one point: the sound quality of a streaming mp3 loses alot of the dynamics of the song. That being said, of course, all glaring errors are mine. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

    I had to listen to the lo-fi version because of my S****y 14.4 dial-up from home.

    Sounded good though. I'll try again tomorrow from work and give it a better listen.

    Nice voice BTW

    I liked the song, guitar & vocals sounded good. Drums I thought were too bright & loud in the mix & I'm not crazy about the effect on the snare. Is there a bass in there, or just guitar?

    I tinkered with the drum sound quite a bit. My previous attempts had all left the drums sounding dull and lifeless so I may have just over-compensated in trying to correct it this time.

    BTW, you're right, there is no bass. I don't have one. I just eq'd one of the guitars to try and give some bottom end. Cheap and lazy, I know, but necessary.

    nice stereo sound, a little clipping on the git at intro tho. A little compression on the vox might help with the inconsistency in volume, but it really ain't that bad the way it is right now tho. Some subtle delay on the vocal might help a little, too. Right now it sounds like the singer is a little out of breath.

    The drum sounds well-recorded, is it real or some nice loop?

    The drums came from a loop that I augmented here and there. Thanx for the input on the vox. I'll tap in a little delay and see if it sounds any better.

    hey darwinsdoggy,

    I dug on your voice. Thought the vox track itself might be a bit crispy at times (over compressed?)

    I admired how you captured and controled the flange/univibe effect on the git.

    I was kinda feeling a want of more bass presence or maybe a more active bass line. Opinion on the bassline, of course

    I think you could forgo a bridge in the arrangment if you stick some lea git fills in and maybe let the standing arrangment breath some with an instrumental solo, something simple and echoing the loose melody, heading back into the final vocal verse and exit.


    Just some thought on and appreciations of your song.

    Peace,

    Theron

    Cool

    Kinda Bluesy but not Da Blues. Nice concept on the tune dude and Good Vox and Geetar. Mix was not bad either but had to Stream it Lo Fi. Not a member there.

    Hey! Is that place free?
