    Inspired by some of the young new drivers in my neighborhood....I recorded this over the weekend...kind of a 21st century "Hot Rod Lincoln" without the good guitar playing

    He’ll pass on the right and blow you away
    Don’t give a damn bout a merge on the freeway
    He’ll sit at the light till it turns green
    Then on goes the blinker for a left it seems

    Hes a multitasking guy
    Tweets while he drives
    Eats a double big mac
    And a small order of fries

    Smoke burnin bright
    Bass kickin deep
    It aint his fault there’s kids in the street


    The worlds his trashcan
    The streets his home
    Throwin dat empty 40
    On da neighbors lawn

    A shorty pushing a carriage
    Stares in awe
    As he blows thru a stop sign
    And flips off her dog


    Like the KIA hamsters
    His posses got soul
    Crusin for shortys
    Letting the good times roll

    He’s 5 ft 1 with the
    Seat pushed back
    His pimp hand be strong
    And his rims be wack


    Then one day hes gone
    And the streets are safe
    Dad took the keys
    Too his Ford Escape

    Lol. Very nice. Nice blend of modern/vintage guitar tones. Pretty good mix. I'd like some drum variety, but the simpleness works too.

    Thanks Greg, early on in the way I do originals....pretty much get the structure down, then go back and add fills/florishes/crashes etc...used my podhd's version of a gibson gibtone amp, a bassman, and a marshall....bass was a hiwatt.....probably gonna do a diffrent lead guitar track with a little more variety as well...

    Yeah I was thinking a little more lead variety could be good too, but I wouldn't go overboard with it. Your call of course.

    I really like the drums. They sound pretty f'in good to me. I like the lyrics too. Good groove to the tune.

    I'll be interested to hear how you change the guitar work.

    Mix sounds great though, to me.

    Cool tune queepy. Sounds ragged and dirty, good energy and I liked the lyrics. I think there's a little boominess on the bass that I'd notch out and I'd bring down the volume on the doubled vocal bits like "rims be wack" a touch. Other than that, nice!

    That's just plain fun.
    The toms are a little boomy and you do need more tugger in the solo but so far so cool.
    I aslo reckon you could isolate & boost a chorus with a second or harmony vocal to give the thing some extra dynamics.
