    One of the tunes I've been struggling to put a cap on for a while. It still needs work but Im moving on for now.

    I'm starting to get a bit closer to what I'm going for (I think) although I think I backed off too much on the guitar.

    Sorry for the big download, I get pretty flaky encoding on the cymbols unless I go vbr. I'm gonna try and find a setting that's a little more dl friendly.

    It's a little twisted

    Pretty cool DaveO. Vocals could be louder. Also, the rhythm guitar could be tighter, especially the 'chicka-chicka' parts. Some lead parts might add some variation. Interesting patterns though. I like the sound. Funky!

    I was uploading a new mix and I managed to get all the flags unchecked. I had an upload timeout so I might have hosed things a bit on nowhere.

    Thanks for listening. I've learned a lot about mid range mud trying to mix this one. The vocals were all close miced and the guitar tone sucked so I've been eq'ing and uploading versions all day.

    I think I missed the mark with this tune, it's starting to sound long and monotinous to me as well as being awkward and dorkadelic lyrically. This ones been teetering on the "chuck" list for a whle.

    If you think it sucks, do me a favour and let me know.

    Doug;

    I got in before the Server Prob and got it downloaded. Guitar tone does not stink Doug. Sounds nice and full for what sounds to me like a Str@. Drums are too loud in comprarison to the rest of the Mix.

    Vox is too low. Unsure of yourself? Don't be. Sounds fine. Crank it up.

    Tune needs some breaks or a Bridge. It's a cool riff, just needs that something that will make it special. Don't can it!

    Interesting title. I thought the drums sounded great, espcecially the snare. The spoken words were a nice addition, but too far back in the mix to be able to hear. Lead singer had a good voice.

    The vox were a bit tough to hear. They could be brought up a bit. The rhythm guit was a little on the abrasive side.

    And I agree that the song needs a bridge to break it up in the middle.

    Something about the harmonies wasn't working for me. The line "you get the love". Not sure I have the words right, but on the word "love" the harmonies sound a little off. Maybe that's what you were going for, but to my ear it sounded off.

    My thoughts...

    I've upped the vox a bit and been doing some experimenting with reverb which seems to get them to stand out a bit more without taking over the mix.

    Thanks for checking it out.
    The voice over stuff was supposed to be audible and sort of humourous, I thought about cranking them up a bit too.
    "Lead singer had a good voice"
    thanks.
    Yup you got the words right, and it sounds a little off because, well, it probably is. I was kindof hoping it would blend in with all the clutter

    Nice guitar work again Doug, but it's drowning out the vocal! Man, you are a guitar maniac!
