Pretty 'in your face' groove and tone. Tough to stay under the speed limit if driving. Like another comment, I'd look for a spot to take down and bring it back....maybe even up a whole step.

Thanks, and yes I need to find the master and tweak it a bit.

Hey Tv great tune, I enjoyed your straight ahead Rock n' Roll approach to the track. And a nice steady groove to match; the only the thing you didn't do for a track this long (besides the guitar riff changes), is that you didn't incorporate in changes in the song or breaks to break up the monotony of the main groove / hook. But other than that I thought the tune was "Rock Solid".

Well Done

Thanks D. Yeah it can definitely use a change or 2, maybe even a Bridge. Thanks for taking the time to give it a listen and for the feedback.

Thanks man...this is one of my faves as well. I think it is in Drop C tuning. I went through a phase with that for a while when I was heavy into Queens of the Stone age.
Appreciate you taking the time to listen and comment.

I enjoy this style of yours man. The sounds revolve around my head, from left to the right front to back as I sit here still. Dig them grooves. The hip hop rock flavor is a favorite of mine and you did a fine job here, even though it's old it still remains fresh. Gives that 'don't mess with me, I'm jammin' feel ha. This holds well on its own, vocals would add to the flavor but what I like about this idea is already here! Thank you for the share. Fun jam. Peace.

Thanks for the very kind words bro...it's nice to know something you are so passionate about resonates with others. I love a good Hip Hop flavor in my Rock from time to time. I just look for inspiring drum beats to work with. Sometimes they are leaning this way. :)
Thanks for taking the time to give it a listen, it is appreciated.

Awesome. Kind of makes me think of Blue Oyster Cult with a little ZZ Top flavor.

Thanks bro, I think I owe the BOC influence to my wife, she loves them. I am a big ZZ Top fan and think Billy Gibbons is a master of guitar tone. Appreciate you giving it a listen and taking the time to comment.

Roll em fat too! This sounds Great!! I need to take my thumb out of my butt and learn Reaper, Yeah rip them solos up like a nice big smelly fart!! Thank you for sharing these awesome tracks! I'm no good with vocals either, I got one coming soon with a little death metal growls but that's it for me LOL!, other than saying some things for samples.

topvega replied 28th Jun 2013 - 10 years ago
Thanks bro, glad you enjoyed this. As for Reaper, I love it. If you are interested I can send you the tutorial videos I have for it. They helped me out big time. If you are interested hit me up at Toppervega@aol.com. I can zip up all the videos and email them to you. Best part about Reaper is it's not a disabled version. You can use it till you get comfortable with it before even buying a license. I look forward to hearing your Death Metal track. I will keep an eye out for it.

The track if fxckin rockin, its my opinion that u should b more aggressive with the solo's. Dont b shy to rip em like a fart rite in front of everyone, :)

topvega replied 28th Jun 2013 - 10 years ago
Thanks man, I appreciate the support and the call for more aggressive solos. This track was done over a year ago and I have since gotten a bit more aggressive. Still room to turn it up more though. I appreciate you taking the time to listen and leave a comment.

I think some vocals would be awesome. Turn it into a birthday song. Something like: "Happy Birthday... Here's a birthday song from me."

This is something right out of the late 60's early 70's beginning of heavy metal music. Makes me think of a Deep Purple and Foghat blend here. All that is lacking is a killer vocal track. This woke me up!

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

Description : This track was like the inhale after an exhale of aggressive industrial-electro-sludge tracks that I had put out that summer and fall. This was the more reserved, and introspective winter track. It's nothing spectacular, but I still really enjoy it. I hope you do too. Take care. V.
