Give a listen... what genre would you call this?? It is'nt the worlds greatest sounding track...But it has its moments. I recorded evry bit of it but the Hammerhead Drum line. Give me a hollar!! Like it...Hate it??? Copy and paste here: Any probs with the link: Like I say...I know it aint the best recording...I am using MT Studio with the VIA AC'97 Sound driver and my stock sound card. Considering these "handicaps"...give a shout..Thank you, Randy Evans-The Smith Brothers Band-Topeka, Ks

its rocabilly blues with a clapton feel. Its really good and i enjoyed the listen.
i feel though that the mix needs tweaks, (im no pro but here goes) lower bass a little- eq a vocal hole in the rest cause it sounds like the vocals are fighting with the music, especially the lead guitar. Youre really close on a great tune, its the mix the mix the mix.......ask noise2u or jamie garret exactly how to fix it.
good tune, good band.

cool song, I'll go with tony on genre. Various elements need to be tweaked in the mix.

I would boost the EQ on the vocals just a bit (easy does it) in about 2-2.5k range to give them a little bit more edge and make them stand out better. I think tony is right in that the various parts seem to be fighting each other for their place in the mix, resulting in a somewhat muted overall sound. And like tony I'm hesitant to give specifc advise because I just don't know my way around mixing that well yet :)

Alot will depend on the capablities of the software your using as well, things like parametric EQ, noise reduction, compressor/limiters etc as to what you can do.

Really cool song though, played & sung very well.

Thats a good song, but the mix could be better, you need to notch everything out to fit in right (there is a very good article by BlueNinjaStar on this site that explains how do this very clearly, I found it very helpful), i agree with TonyD, it sounds very Clapton, which is a good thing

I like this! :) Very catchy. Great guitar work, great vocals, great bass too! So far I agree with all comments re: mix & whatnot. I'm afraid I don't have much to add in that area. I would like to add that this song made me smile on what has turned out to be a very crappy morning so far, so THANKS! for that. Man, this is a really good song. Very, very nice job on it. I'd love to hear more of your material.
