    Whatcha think? Good or bad I'd love to get some opinions.

    www.visualops.com/stuff/the stickman - Momma.mp3

    This was recorded entirely on my 1.3 gig (o/c'd to 1.5) Celeron 512 ram win2k system. Audigy Platinum sound card. Tracked with CWPA 9.0. Drums put together with Acid 3.0 and a variety of DX plugins. Recorded, mixed and mastered in 16/44. All instruments and vocals done my me...so iffin no one likes it, I got no one else to blame!

    Used 1 Shure SM58 mic and zero guitar amps. All guitar tracks were played thru the digital out on the Genesis 3.

    momma

    First listening : (typing while listening)

    Guitar is kinda oversaturated, underlying strings are mixed well.

    I like the melodic material.

    Single singer's Vox is UNDERMIXED, that means bring down the instruments.

    Vocal harmonies are fine, good.

    Good build up to the hard stuff.

    Vocals and other noise mixed well.

    As this new verse material comes in the vocals are understandable, good pronunciation.

    I understand this style demands a close level mixing of the 'noisy instruments' and the vocals.

    A little too much saturation of reverb on the guitar, sounds almost contrived.

    You good enough where you don't have to drench yourselves in all the effects, back off on the effects a little.

    Good 'sing-yelling' on the Whooooaaaaaa-ohaaaa

    good intonation and well mixed.

    This next lyric section is so much better and tighter than the rest of the tune.

    Try starting the session at this point, and work forward and backwards of this point.

    Ok, nice guitar solo, relax while playing these drums, get with your click track.

    Not exactly my style, but a good effort for a one man band.

    SECOND LISTENING :

    The intro reminds me a little of a southern rock epic sound.

    Practice just breathing 16 measures, as you listen to the tune. Watch your chest in the mirror move up and down, watch your belly take in air. Get your body together and teh vocals will tighten up A LOT.

    stickman!

    Pretty good 4 a one man act.
    You make maximum use of the gear you have.
    Thats really what it's all about.

    I LIKED it.
    The song sounded very 70's
    Ever hear Ritchie Blackmore's other band Rainbow?

    I didn't like the drum sound, although I'm not sure there's a lot you can do about that. Also don't use that crash so much - keep it for the big hits.

    The vocal and backing vocal I thought were great - good mix of melody and power.

    I prefer the guitar out a bit more in the heavy parts. I liked the melody of the lead break but that tone didn't do it for me.

    Great job though overall. Very smooth sounds

    Thanks for the kind words. I LOVE old Rainbow but only when Dio was singing. His voice still kicks my ass and Blackmore's playing has always moved me.

    Appreciate you taking the time to listen.

    I like it stickman, very Blackmore indeed

    I like! I agree with Bulls re: the crash and studioviols seems to capture my thinking pretty well!

    All in all I like - although pay attention to those little things as they make all the difference!

    Post more,

    Not bad at all. The vocal reminds me of Kiss for some reason.

    I can hear KISS in here as well, drums sound great, really good production, love the guitar solo around 4:00.
