    I hesitate to put this up but what the hell. I haven't been around here in a long while. Lots of personal problems. But I've ben trying to get back into things. I've been playing with some friends and one of them (Jan Marks) penned this one which I tracked, arranged and also played on. If you have a minute, give it a listen.

    Dude, sweet tune! for my ears I thought the ride was a bit too up front and the vocal could come up a tad, on cheap headphones at the mo so take it with a pinch of salt!

    Hey, TR - not only are you still around, but Nowhere's still around! I had no idea it was still functioning.

    I like the tune. Sounds good. The snare might be tweaked. It's sounding a bit too bright/thin/verbed to me. I'm wondering if you could deal with two of those issues just by putting a lowpass on the reverb return. Dunno. But it's drawing a lot of attention to itself because of the part and the verb, so it's got to be right. If it had a bit more body, you might be able to leave it as wet as it is now and get away with it.

    Thanks man. The drummer while one of my best friends has a peculiar style. Every time he hits the snare is a rim shot. It makes it a challenge to tame. Everyone wanted a "vintage" production (i.e. drowning in verb). I agree with your assesment and I'll be going back into it. Again thanks to all. I'm clawing my way back into life.

    Neither here nor there, but the slide part I played on my home made Lapsteel.12309276_868452996602505_701237523_n-jpg12309276_868452996602505_701237523_n-jpg

    I loved the drums and even though the guy is hitting the rim all the time, I think it sounds peculiar and interesting. The vocals are really powerfull and the guitar has a really good tone. Do you mind sharing what setup have you used in this?

    And the mix has a whole vintage vibe to it, that I really enjoy.

    Nice tune.

    I like it when instruments look like violins. I saw a ukelele this week, an Eastman, that's modeled on a violin look. Lovely.

    I like the 'one knob, one switch' controls.

    Thanks again my friend. It was a violin in its first life. I drug it out of a dumpster and kind of did the Frankenstein to it.
    As far as setup goes, rhythm guitar was a Samick SAT650 which is basically a 335 copy through a '65 Ampeg Gemini VI, that miked with a KM184/HHB preamp. Bass was a P bass/ Hartke amp mike with a D-112/HHB Fatman. Piano was a synth DI. Organ was a Hammond L103/ Leslie 147 miked with a 57/Envoice Mindprint. Slide part was the FrankenFiddle through a Kustom 72 Coupe miked with the KM-184/HHB combo again. Drums I used a pair of Earthworks SR-71's for overheads in XY, AKG C-1000 on rack tom, AKG C3000 on floor tom, a Sennheiser MD-441 on snare and an AKG D-112 in the kik with a 57 on the front head all through HHB preamps.img_0021-jpg

    The song sounds real nice man. I don't really hear anything out of whack. I like your set up.
    So long home recording dot com. Kiss my ass!
