This is your best one yet, for me anyway. The stereo effects totally work. It's a pleasure for to really hear your voice on this one, and the repetition of similar elements at different pitches and different locations is really interesting and inventive. And a bunch of different moods over the whole 7+ minutes. Me I like 2:24 the best. The guitar solo surprised me...you got some speed there...me, I'd have to record at slow speed and then adjust tempo in Live!

Great invention! I'm going to think how I can use the repetition/pitch motif.

Thats a nice pumping bass (on bass guitar), bit too boomy at points on the kick after 1:20. This definitley needs a remix in my opinion of levels. . I suppose you could keep the kick more slap that bass and possible side the chain the bass with the kick so it gives it a boom on those hits. By having a slap kick (specially at points like solo at the end of four minutes) might help keep up pace. Though at times like 2:45 the kick works.

Not too sure on snare level.

Great guitar tones though.
Nice tracking and stereo effect, gives it those dynamics.
Your double tracking works wonders, specially at the end.

This is truly an amazing piece. I hope you appreciate you may have made me inadvertently late for college!
I best be going!

See you later bandampers ( I know I haven't been around recently )

aar0j - Thanks for the comments. I never thought about changing the kick. I agree.

toastedgoat - yep, it was all done by me. This song has been in my head for about the last two weeks but I never had time to record it until just a few days ago. Glad you liked it.

Jefferson - The solo (at 4:30) is actually a mandolin. I was really happy with how it came out. Usually when I improvise a solo I have to do it over a few times, but this one was actually the first take.

In honor of it being like 10 years since this song was released, I'd like to give it a bump.

I still think about this song weekly and listen to it all the time, along with most of your stuff Ben. Thanks for the many years of excellent music.
