    Thanks guys. That's a piece I have been tinkering with for a long time and figured I'd offer it up because it is a bit different.

    Here are the specs if anyone is interested:

    Studio One @ 96kHz

    Bass: Squier Precision Jazz
    Guitar: Epiphone Sheraton II
    Drums: Session Drummer 3 from Cakewalk.

    Guitars were run through my ART tube mic pre and ART tube comp. I used a transient shaper plugin on the snare in SD3 to change the sound of it quite a bit.

    You might be sure that I will allways produce a mistake. In every track I posted there are little flaws. Sometimes I play things which I like very much myself, but absence of defectiveness for me seems something like a utopian dream ;)

    Here's some track #4 feedback for those who've participated so far.

    April #4

    • Ullrich - Nice dual guitars. I like that descending riff, and the AC/DC-ish hammer on section towards the end. :cool:
    • Mark - Lots of good thing happening in this track Mark. Well done. :D
    • Mike - That's a seriously crazy track you've got there. I like the hard panning, but the levels could've been up a smidge. But then again you might've lost the BT if you'd done so. At least I can hear it all, even if I do have to concentrate. Well done. :cool:
    • Joe - That's jaw-droppingly good Joe. From the opening riff to the last note. Well done! :cool:
    • Shane - I like the way you developed this track and modulated the intensity of your playing as the BT wove it's way through the various sections. :cool:

    That was really good! I love the panned guitars. That part at the end was excellent. Good sound, good mix, great playing. It kind of reminded me of the Allman brothers a little at the beginning.

    I liked the dual guitar parts. That beginning part with the walk down was really good. Great tone. I listened to the end and enjoyed the whole thing. It's a long song for sure. :)

    Loved the sound of the guitars. The whole thing sounded good to me. I really liked you playing style on this.

    Sounded great to me. Really liked the sound you were getting on the guitars.

    McFoodie! You've done it again! [/Mr. Magoo voice]That was awesome! :lol: I picked up on a couple of tuning things here and there, but that was really good!

    This was my intention, I wanted do more harmonized stuff, but found that the first recorded guitar made it a little difficult to do that. Thank you for your positive comment - you too, Phil!

    Phil, I have to confirm Shane. Presumed the corresponding soft- / hardware, one could finish the mix a little better, but what is really important is the quality of your ideas and their realisation, and that again was really good. Yes Sir, a mandolin on hard rock track is something that has to come to one´s mind! Respect, Phil, respect!

    Thanks Shane. That'd be the slide that was out I guess. Hard to be 100% accurate, but I think I'm getting better.

    Yes I did rush the mixing I must admit. I had a bad day at work and just wanted to get it out. I was going to go down the hard rock path, but that riff on the BT was talking to me in a different language.

    Call me whatever you like, but don't call me late for dinner. :lol:

    That was the intention. 2 of my recent musical influences (over the last 6-8 years) are Seasick Steve and 8 Ball Aitken. I really wanted to play Dobro on this track, 'cos that's what I heard in my head, but I don't have one.

    Thanks everyone for listening and for your feedback. I wonder what next month has is store for us. :?:
