Description : My friend, fellow musician, and all around great guy Mark Ratcliffe approached me about doing a blues tune and I jumped at the chance to work with Mark again. He's got a great voice for the blues....I once described it as a mixture of gin, cigarette smoke, and ministry. He sings the blues like he's been there and that is the way it should be done. This tune sounds like a live recording....like we were there with Muddy Waters and the boys and I love the feel of this one. Mark Ratcliffe - vocals, lyrics, lead guitar, drums, bass, harmonica. Barry Morgan - rhythm guitars, organ, horns. No animals or cops were harmed in the production of this. A huge thanks to Mark for providing the talent (he also mixed and mastered it). I hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it. You can find more of Mark's work here: http://www.looperman.com/users/profile/631933
Description : This was my entry into a remix contest by Anna Yvette for her song "Stars and Moon." I don't enter a lot of remix contests and this song will give you an idea why, hahaha. A huge thanks to Anna Yvette for allowing people like me to really mess up her work. This one was a bit of a challenge due to the vocals already being mixed. Unfortunately, downloads are restricted on this one per her request. Thanks for listening.
Description : There are a lot of talented people on Looperman, but probably not many as talented as Tumbleweed. Not only is Ed one of the finest guitar players around, he is also a master at arranging, composition, and production. Ed was kind enough to take an interest in remixing the original "Stone Cold" and has turned it into something very special indeed. Sit back and enjoy that smooth buttery tone that one can achieve only through years of hard work and practice. This is truly one hell of a great ride. You can hear more of Ed's amazing work over at his place, but bundle up, it's cold up there: http://www.looperman.com/users/profile/498019
You should all direct your comments to Ed, he's the genius behind this one and deserves all of the credit. Enjoy
Description : EDIT: I took Static's critique to heart, so the latest version has a longer intro, better drums (I hope), and a different ending. Static, thanks for the guidance, greatly appreciated. I finally had a bit of time to get into the studio and do a little recording. I found this amazing pella by Minette and thought I would try to put something together for it. The pella is actually several separate pellas and unfortunately, I was unable to assemble all of the pieces correctly, so my apologies to Minette. Here is the link to her pella (at least the first one): http://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/5782
I wanted a live feel to this one, so I started with some drum loops and her vox. All of the synth parts, the guitar parts, and the bass guitar were recorded live, in one take, each instrument one at a time. That's why you will hear some buzz on the bass from the amp, and in spots it seems I am chasing the beat somewhat. I'm unsure about the mix as well. My hearing is just about gone, so all of the mixing is done by sight now, instead of with my ears. When I listen I have to crank the volume to 11 and that isn't an optimal way to mix and master. So if you hear something way out of whack, let me know and I'll try to fix it. Again, I would like to thank Minette for sharing her gifts with us, and I hope I did your pella a little justice. Drums were loops, guitars are Fender Strat and Fender acoustic/electric, Ibanez bass, and the synths are KVR's SynthMaster. Tempo is 95bpm. Thanks for listening.
Description : This song started out with just me on acoustic guitar, and some added pads and strings. Tumbleweed (Ed Cunningham) was kind enough to do a bit of rearranging, and added drums, bass, and his wonderful lead guitar. He also did all of the production on this one. His guitar work is just about as good as it gets. Stop by his profile and give his other work a listen. You can find him here: http://www.looperman.com/users/detail/498019
There might be another version of this track soon with vocals on it :) Check back often and bring a friend, haha.
Description : When I heard the magnificent vocals from Janis71, I knew I had to do something with them. Spanish/classical music probably was the furthest thing from her mind when she posted these, but it is what I was inspired to do. Pretty simple song, only a nylon stringed guitar, strings, and the amazing vocal talents of Janis71. You can find her acapella here: http://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/4043
And her profile here: http://www.looperman.com/users/profile/855066
A huge thanks to Janis for posting her pellas and sharing her amazing gifts. Thanks for listening. Constructive feedback is appreciated. This really should be in a Spanish genre, but the closest I could find was classical. Sorry about that.
