    Great tune, the vox remind me very much of a certain Steve Winwood, when he played with Spencer davies Group.

    The drums are machine right?

    I wish you guys got this tuen recorded with real drums, it would give even more texture.

    But the song alone was very strong, and regardless of real drums or not I loved it.

    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks Nakatira - I've had a few Steve Winwood comparisons - and I appreciate the compliment! The drums are written in midi in Cakewalk. I played them out of the computer soundcard to an analog tape deck, then played them back from there onto my ADAT (all stereo tracking). I've since started using my Yamaha keyboard for drum because the samples? or sounds of the drums are pretty nice...and it takes less work.

    I have to do the same thing with the yamaha keyboard.

    I have a yamaha dd-50, but I can't record it because I don't like the fact that it puts the snare hard left, and I can't record each drum on its own.

    Nice tune. I had to listen to it low-fi because of my jacked up internet connection, but even there it sounded nice.

    I love the sound of the bass!
    Instead of a Do Not Disturb Sign, I need one that says "Already Disturbed. Proceed With Caution".

    Wow. Mike came through with a great bass line & the tone grabs it's own space.
    You've brought that out with the mix really well - particularly during the solo - speaking of which it's a really cool stinger.
    The drums work well except maybe the hihat - but I'm not sure.
    Vocals are ACE!
    Exemplary song craft.

    Thanks Rokket - A fellow Yamaha owner....
    Yamaha makes a great keyboard (mine is a DGX305)!

    Sounds pretty dang good to me Ido. Nice sounds all around.

    Man, if you want, I can try to add some real drums to it. Sounds straight forward enough. PM me if you're interested.

    Thanks Ray and Greg_L for the listen and the kind words! Mike added a great bass line to this. I'm glad you like the way it's mixed, too.

    Cool tune man....I really like the vibe to this one. Has a great, classic rock feel to it....it does remind me of something Winwood would do.

    With this particular song, I think it would sound cool if you compressed teh whole mix some, and pumped it up, making it pretty big...don't kill all the dynamics, but making it bigger would fit the nature of what I hear....just a thought. This tune has a great rhythm to it....very cool.
    Honey Badger is badass...he don't give a shit.

    Thanks Dogman - I'll give your idea a try!
