    something different from me... acoustic/electric hybrid song

    Sign in to disable this ad
    it's called "TROUBLE".....


    it's a somewhat fictitious song, about a woman doing a man wrong, and how he feels about it...

    the original lyric used to say "and the next time i see her, i'm going to kill her".......

    which, of course, is very politically incorrect.

    it was supposed to be a "Hey Joe" kinda vibe.....

    then i edited to the current version.....

    now, i'm thinking of re-tracking it from scratch, and don't know whether or not to change the lyric back to the original.....

    ideas?

    I dug it man. I especially liked the vocals, in tune, and nice harmonies. I actually think the vocal could come out front more.
    The 12 string riff sounds cool and clean. I can relate to the slide tone you chose. Dark and echoey. Fresh shit man. Stay the course.
    peace

    This is a quality product. Very clean performance and interesting composition. As for the recording, my ears couldn't find anything to pick at, I liked everything.

    I'm actually listening a 2nd time, if that tells you anything. I really like the liberal use of delay and verb on the vox. And the breaks throughout add a cool rhythm and groove to the song. I think I might steal that idea for my next song. What kinda guitar is the acoustic? Sounds sweet.

    thanks for listening....
    i'm a journeyman slide player (which means, i suck)

    glad you dug it.....
    any ideas on the lyric problem? or leave it alone....

    "fresh shit"...... LOL well, some have told me it sounds like something from the 70's...
    kinda funny how it hits different people...
    that 12 string, was a cheap-ass yamaha, and i was stringing it for a friend, started jamming on it, threw a mic up (a 57) and just started.... played the main riff, made up on the spot, and then went back and added all the other crap... wrote a quick lyric, had the whole thing done in 2 hours....
    spent a couple of hours playing with the mix....

    thanks for the critique...
    i'm planning on re-doing it, but don't have access to a 12-string now, wonder if i could pull it off with a standard 6-string?

    andyhix-
    i've caught heat, for this mix being "too wet".....

    well, sometimes i just have to use some effects to an extreme, i record most everything else dry...
    the only real effects were on the vox and slide....
    that was a cheap yamaha 12-string.... a beater, that was on loan for a weekend.....
