    Talking HRC-How Dry I Am

    Hi All,

    This is my submission for the dry comp.
    It's an instrumental,no lyrics yet.
    I didn't want to kill you guys!

    Only thing I used was the low cut on my Mackie.
    Chris said that was allright,didn't he?

    "Hey Now"-

    Damn, Pete. This sounds terrific!

    I like the change at :30. Lends itself to a nice vocal entry.

    The harmonica sounds sweet. I'm not usually a big harmonica fan, unless it's played very well, and I like what you did with it here.

    A lot of players would have played the acoustic parts haphazardly, just sort of mindlessly strumming the part, happy enough to just keep the tempo with it. You were mindful of your rhythms and accents. Well done.

    Good tracking- mission accomplished.

    Great stuff Pete. A day late, but a dollar extra.

    I agree with Tom....it sounds great Pete.I think you guys are onto something......these tracks sound GREAT compared to a few of your other "Fully" mixed tunes......I guess Less IS more....I dig the tune too.

    Excellent tunage. Almost feels like old Outlaws. What's the guitar in the chorus? It sounds like it's flanging or phasing or something. It almost sounds like a resonator guitar. Got vocals for this?

    Tracking sounds balanced & clean. Performance is right in the pocket.

    Hey Pete -- Long time no see Hope all is well with you.

    Love the tune - There are a lot of changes that keep it moving along nicely.

    The recording sounds great on this end. Love that guitar work and the harmonica is a nice touch...Looking forward to hearing this with vocals.



    p.s. hopefully I'll get something to you soon...I'm working on it!

    Like it, very nice.

    Sounds like the end of tune though.. Get some lyrics and vocals going, that would shift it.

    Nice concept so far.

    Thanks guys,your the best!

    SLuiCe-Hey Tom,thanks my friend.
    You made my day!

    Glad you liked the harp.
    I apprecite the guitar comments,your acoustics are always extra nice.

    "A day late, but a dollar extra."
    But how come I'm still a dollar short!



    Kramer-Thanks K,always a pleasure to have you listen man.

    I have to agree with you,sounds better dry.
    I think from now on,reverb on vocals only!
    (A lot of reverb!)

    Funny thing is,not only is this dry,I screwed up when I recorded it.

    I had a blank song set up on my recorder so I used it.
    I didn't realize till I burnt the CD that it was 16/44 from the get go.
    I've been doing 24/48 lately and didn't even hear the differance.

    I don't know if it's the lack of processing or what.
    Go figure!



    Track Rat-Thanks very much Mike,I appreciate the listen!

    Ya,I dig the old Outlaws.
    "Green Grass and High Times",now there's a great song to play,eh!

    The guitar in the chorus is a Seagull 12 string I bought used.
    Has a real nice sound,but it's a bugger to record.
    I spent 2 hours today to try and get it,that's the best I came up with.

    I don't know if it's because it's Mahogony,or just the nature of the beast?
    I'll have to keep messing with it.


    M.Brane-Thanks for taking the time!
    Glad you liked it.
    I appreciate the comments.

    I've been meaning to catch everybody else's stuff,but the site's been really slow lately.
    Hey,no time like the present!

    boydrj -Hey Rob!
    How are you doing bro.
    Great I hope!

    I'm really glad you liked this,thanks for the listen.
    Your comments are always very much appreciated.
    I'm still try to work out some lyrics.

    " p.s. hopefully I'll get something to you soon...I'm working on it!"

    Take your time man,I always do!


    I'm heading over right now to check out your latest masterpiece!


    Emeric-Thanks very much!
    I always dig your stuff!

    Definitly needs some vocals to bring it around.
    Now to the real work!


    Thanks,
    Pete

    Izzat you playing the harp? Very pretty song Pete. I hear what your saying about the 12 string. It doesn't sound like you've found the sweet spot yet. I've got a Seagull 12 string too, but I haven't tried to record it yet. Now I'm nervous! Let me know if you find the secret.
