    "Road To Tabriz"

    preview of an upcoming all-instrumental album i'm considering releasing.
    i've got 6 of these finished, about 4 more almost done.

    this one is a rock instrumental, fast tempo with spacey breakdown, lots of strat tones, jamming bass line, harmony guitar parts, a bit progressive.

    any mix suggestions as i get this thing dialed in?

    nice ..... really nice. Who's doing drumbs?

    I likes it ....... I only make mix comments if something sucks because I don't believe there's only one way to mix something.
    Nothing sucks so no mix comments.

    Dude ...... i like the hell out of it ......... it's conceivable I might download and keep this and I almost never do that ..... me likey!

    You have some Zappa influences i'm gonna say.
    If you know the secret codes you can get by the mastering boss on level 8.

    Very nice man! Can really hear that "strat" character shining through like mad. I like the main lead - it sounded like you had your wah pedal on half way or something.

    1) Were those human-played electric drums?

    2) I might bring the lead guitar down a little bit. Even though it's instrumental and the lead should be the focus, I think imo that it might be overpowering some other things a little bit. Maybe it was the reverb level on it as well.

    All in all, great job and spectacular playing and writing/composition!

    Hey bob - is this your first listen to Gonzo? He routinely posts track after track of excellent stuff - stellar playing, recording, mixing, mastering, everything. Even though musically we inhabit different musical worlds - it's hard not to recognize his JAW dropping talent.

    lt bob
    thanks man!
    i'm dong the drumbs!!
    LOL
    actually, i programmed the drums, using superior drums, but using the ezdrummer kit.....
    sometimes, i actually prefer the 'lesser' kit, because to me, it almost has more impact than the 'superior' 24 bit capture of the new york 'Avatar' studios kit.

    zappa, well, i've listened to a lot of zappa for sure, but i wouldn't cite him as a influence, per se.
    maybe in terms of arrangments....
    thanks again

    recording master
    appreciate the comments, glad you dig it.

    the 'strat' tone, yes, i spent quite some time deciding exactly how to do my custom build, and what electronics to use, it turned out quite good.

    drums are acoustic samples, programmed into superior drummer 2.0

    lead guitar, well, that's a subjective call, for sure... there is no reverb on it, only some room mic.
    then, at the very end, there are some long delays on one track of the call-and-response section, and a big reverb on the other.
    the rest are bone dry.

    thanks again for listening

    sometimes people outside see influences you don't ..... influences aren't always conscious things.

    I'm absolutely hearing some Zappa in the arrangements ....... that's a good thing BTW.
