Neon Blues by Bats Brew | Free Listening on SoundCloud

this is the first mix of this tune,
1st time i've posted it.

need some feedback on the mix in general.
mix is kinda 'faders up', so i'll be tweaking the mix quite a bit,
so feel free to include your ideas.

this is song #10, of a ten song instrumental album by Bats Brew, called "Elemental".
hope you enjoy it!

Very nice guitar soundscape, lush tones. Kind of a Steve Vai vibe. Drums are at a good level, sympathetic metalwork and they don't intrude. Composition meanders a bit in the latter half. I was hoping for a circle back to the figures and riffs you had going in the first 40s which are really cool

hey bulls, thanks for the comments,
yea, i like the beginning melodies in the chord work,
but it felt too repetitive when i repeated the opening chords
i think the song needed to go somewhere else, to create the complete journey. i think the 'blues' always has to resolve, one way or another.

this tune is down now,
i've done two more mixes since i posted this first one,
and i've stuck a fork in it.

so, just so you'll know,

i posted EVERY song on this new album, right here, looking for help from my 'peer' group,

and in most cases, i got GREAT help!

sometimes i posted early mixes, and then later, final mixes,

just to get enough feedback to dial in the songs,

so at this point,

i have 10 finished instrumentals,

my first album of instrumentals.... i have 4 other full length albums of vocal songs...



this album will be called "Elemental",

doing album art right now....
tweaking final mixes....
then very light mastering, targeting -14 LUFS...

then off to the cd printers, and they usually take a week to turn it around...

off to Amazon, once that's done, i'll put out some links.

hope you pick one up!
