Hey Doc, it has been a while. I was wondering what happened to ya..

The vocals could be turned down some, but then again, the wella wella wella thing was kind of annoying to me (no offense, just being honest).

Guitar was to low in the mix to my ears.

Other than that, it was a good recording.

I loved it. It sounded great through my phones. I wish it was a bit longer with a solo break though. :)

Sounded great Simon. The vocals might have been a touch overpowering, but I think for that style, the vocals do need to be more "out front." Guitar tones sounded great as well. Nice jazz box type tones. Was that the Variax?

BTW, glad to see you back around!

oh god, the DOC IS BACK!!! YESSSSSSS!!!!

This is a pretty sweet track, Doc. There was a little inconsistency in the steadiness of the rhythm guitar at a couple points, but I really liked the melody and the guitar fills. Stuck in my head now.

I want the P-funk!

My band is better than yours...

Well, it is confession time ! I have finally got the makings of a band together ! Wehey !

It is not me singing or playing the guitar but a good friend of mine Dan Nuno. I tracked it, edited it, added some lamo drums and did a very scant job of mixing it (and the song is a cover !!).

We have the bass player (another studio engineer) coming round on Sat and we can see where we go from their ! I got drunk with him several weeks ago and we have both sufficiently recovered to do some jammin and recordin !

The rhythm guitar was a 1970s Guild Jazz-box into a Radial split-bone ABY box which went either through Boss trem and Verb pedals or direct into either channel of an ART TPS and then into an MOTU 828 mk II @ 24/96. Each was panned about 50% L or R.

The lead was a mid 90s California strat into the ART TPS via a tube screamer or clean.

the bass was a Peavey Cirrus into an Avalon U5 DI and the Vox were tracked using an AKG C414 into an Avalon vt737sp. Both also went into the 828 @ 24/96.

Drums were my old faithful Boss DR770 !

Lovely to hear form all you guys again, it is a real pleasure !
