    the guitar parts were recorded with the boogie wide open, makes for some hellacious sound.....

    fun was had at the end, where the guitars sustain until tomorrow, i think the neighbors' dog was howling by the end of it....

    I like it, I like it. You really got me tapping at the 1:44 mark. Reminds me a bit of old Dixie Dregs.

    Funky bass, great harmony guitar.

    If you can edit the waveforms on a PC, I suggest silencing the guitar clicks at the 27 sec mark.

    Well done.

    performance wise...it is a good track........as for the recording....it was VERY muddy sounding......i used the real audio stream, so it is quite possible that the stream makes it sound worse than it really is, but on the stream it sounds really muddy........maybe it's just the encoding process..........nice guitar playing, though

    WOW POWDERFINGER, YOU'RE RIGHT, IT'S SOUNDS LIKE SHIT ON THE REAL PLAYER.......

    i'm just apalled........

    you know, i just take it for granted that people download the mp3's and play them on their player of choice.... so i've never, ever done the streaming of either the default windows media player (my default) or the real player media.......

    both sound like shit to me........

    i download, then play through musicmatch jukebox......

    trust me, the original doesn't sound anything like that....

    i don't know what you have to do to get the players set to play right, but i just a/b'd the jukebox with the windows player and the real player, and there's just no comparison on my system...

    either way, thanks for listening......

    i sure like the dregs, though i think my stuff is much cruder and ruder, not necessarily because i want it that way!

    this is an analog recording, sampled onto hardrive then somewhat mastered....
    i've played with the idea of re-doing it, for some new sonic clarity.....

    I dig it gonzo....nice transition into the funky section.....cool guitar playing.....the mixing could use some help.....needs a lot of eq'ing....maybe someone with some smarts in that area will come along and help you out.

    Cool piece of music.

    Thumbs up dude.

    Great playing Gonzo. This is driving and funky, I like it. The drums sound pretty good too. Nice work

    HELLO LAYTON!

    phil-
    ha, do we play out?
    it's just me, i'd have to have a little casio keyboard doing the drum and bass parts.......
    all these parts are recorded one at the time.... just lots of dubbing...

    Kramer-
    thanks for the listen-yeah, it's an older tascam recording, dubbed off of a dub, off of a dub..... etc, etc, ad naseum.....

    my newer stuff, done digitally, is a world away from the sound, so you're right, basically, i just need to re-record the whole thing...
    but i wanted to get the idea across, just to see if it was worth re-doing.........

    barometer-
    i appreciate you listening... glad you liked the drive of the rhythm, that one was fun to do.... the whole thing probably took 5-6 hours....to come up with the bass part, then the rhythms, program the drums, get the solo stuff down, and put in the handclaps and stuff..... the handclaps were live, so when you've only got 8 tracks to work with, a lot of stuff gets bounced.

    thanks again!

    my guitar playing = suck

    your guitar playing = great


    the mix sounds pretty squashed to me though, but the playing makes me sick...
