Hi, and greetings from the Great State of Texas!

I am a new member who has jumped back into the recording thing after being dormant since around 1997. About two years ago I bought some digital gear and on and off started learning the digital world. Well, the past six months have been a bit busier and I have completed three tunes with several more in the works (I work slow-gotta feed the family and have a life). I would sincerely appreciate any feedback regarding the songs themselves, how they are recorded, anything constructive that will help me learn and grow as an artist.

Currently I have my tunes posted at:

I hope to be an active member of this forum!

I liked the simple approach on High Stakes. The drums were a little set back for my taste, but still sounded very good in the mix. I also liked the guitar sound you had there.

Sins of the Father, Nicely polished sond on that one. Drums nicely placed and sounded very good. Do you use real drums or programmed/synth sampled drums? The vocals were very present and sounded great on this one. Nice guitar solo tone on this as well.

Matter of Pride, again very nice sound on this one. Drums nicely placed and loved the organ sitting a little in the back. It give a nice full sound and doesnt overpower the guitars. Indeed, I will agree the Rick and acoustic sond very good together. The main vox and chorus vox sounded great as well.

All tunes nicely arranged and written as well. My compliments on some very good production.

Thank you for your response.

Currently I use BFD drums, but Sins was recorded using the BlueJay Studio Soundfont from Sonic Implant.

Thank you for the nice words :-) I look forwad to posting more, critiquing when I get the chance, and being a part of this forum!

BFD, that explains the good sound on them. ANd BlueJay, I had used that in the past. Sonic Implants has some good stuff.

not the brightest spark...

Hey man,

Heard 'pride'. Really nice warm clean sound. Really nice separation to my ears. I agree with Noize that the kick drum could come up a bit and maybe a bring the snare foward. I don't know if you have any reverb on it.

Love the backing at 2.30. In fact all the backing!

Very nice work!
