This song is not in a battle


Acoustic with vocals, a departure for me... One guitar track until solo, where two guitars play.
Lemme know what you think, and please rate!

Does this song not follow the Rules? Please Report Abuse

Really bluesy - great! I love the way you recorded it- simplicity is the key in blues. I reckon it might have been a better mix, compression bla bla bla, but it sounds great just the way it is!!!
And the vocals - niiiiice! I'm getting envious... you used your voice very well - some parts are sung in a more gentle way then other which makes it really interesting to listen to.

Now..... to be honest obviously I'd love to hear this as a 1 or 2 verse  introduction to some heavy blues along with drums bass and whatever comes into the genre. i realize you may not have a chance to lay down a drum track etc that's why I am happy with the way it is - sounds great!! well done, Mr.

Oh, and did you intend to change tempo in the middle of the song? or is it due to the nature of playing the guitar?

PS. Is it a fart at the end? 2:09 haha?

great little blues song..sounded like the lead guitar part was panned far right...maybe could've been centred a little more.  Vox are great.  I agree with JPB that some drums and bass would add nicely to this.

I intended to change tempo as freely as I felt I should.... (kind of a Napoleon Dynamite answer... "I do what I feel like...gosh!")

Same goes for the solo on the right hand side... it was about 75-25... I wanted it to sound like two guitarists jammin on either end of a small room...

As for "compression, bla bla bla," PLEEEEEEASE tell me the "bla bla bla"! I used a compressor and a low end boost... but that was all guesswork.... any suggestions?

Yes. I think you need to fatten up the guitar sound. If you feel like doing it let me have the guitar track (separate mp3) sent to my email address - jbp26@wp.pl and i'll try and do sth with it and will let you know exactly what i did to it. ok?

Might I say...
The change in tempo is, Like my good freind Buckweat says, " O-TAY!"...  So now to the song,

  dude, I am sooo jealous.... This rocks man.....   Sounds awesome....   Makes me wanna go to texas too... I am going that way, to become an astronaut at Nasa, with Micosis, maybe we will swing by and visit your oil field..

I've tried to spice up the track. Have a look at things I've done to it at:

or check your e-mail.
Hope that helps!

Nice, simple, well sung and well played.
I'm not keen on the tempo change at the start though!

I'd love to hear the adjusted track that JBP has done - any chance?
