Description : I recently acquired a lap-steel guitar, and this track is it's wobbly-legged introduction to the world. Intro is all lap-steel, with two later lap-steel leads. All real acoustic/electric/bass guitars. I recorded my new frog guiros as well. One in the intro as a woodblock, and both played traditionally later in a bridge. Drums are seven programmed MIDI kits and a loop or two. Chorus has the heaviest guitars I've done. Random percussion and echoing delays galore. Your honest opinion is appreciated, and gets you a coupon for 8 free deep-tissue nipple-rubs, and a full internal body waxing. Act fast!

    That's one amazing track Evan, absolutely my fave of yours so far. Immediately loved the slide guitar and wood block intro which all too quickly dissolves as you lead into the bass and percussion section of the ensuing Middle Eastern groove. This really changes the song dramatically and I'm wondering where your going with this. Very StaticNomad like - Hmm?
    I can tell by the wave form that dynamics are about to change again but I'm totally unprepared for the sonic tsunami that's about to hit.
    I like the nice little "tink" there just prior to impact.
    YEAH, awesome metal chordage and this baby is Full-on rockin!
    I thoroughly enjoyed the arrangement and how you vary it up back and forth, Middle East vibe, more brutal rockin and then you slide back into that Slide with more accompaniment for the outro. Loads of tasty stuff crammed into this track bro. Your really coming on strong Evan, major props on this one man.

    So Now that you have been Gobsmacked by the nomad, let me let you turn the other cheek. Nice intro ;54 builds a nice tension. 1:52 certainly gets your attention. Nice prog synth BTW. 2:27 pulls the old pixies bring it back down trick. 3:16 is back with a vengeance. I think in the second measure of this onslaught you should have added some double bass drums before you went into the Rainforest Café theme. And It ends with me ordering the Galapagos Tortoise feast with a side dish of DoDo wings only to find out they are fresh out of DoDo wings (something about being extinct) so I settle on the dolphin fritters as an appetizer, My wife gets the Rainbow Warrior trout. And we end the meal with some fair trade chocolate that we made some children scurry for in Africa and sell to us .....at a (eye wink) Fair Trade price. ohh wait---the Long Pig is on special...hmmmmnnn.

    The Big "C"!

    New avatar is hip. It's the cover of AC/DC's new album about selling lots of Converse. First single? "Shoe To Thrill".

    "I think in the second measure of this onslaught you should have added some double bass drums before you went into the Rainforest Café theme."

    Agreed. I always wish I'd added more detailed drums and percussion to all my tracks after I'm done with them.

    "Galapagos Tortoise....DoDo.....dolphin fritters....Rainbow Warrior trout.....fair trade chocolate..... Long Pig"

    I prefer Spotted Owl Kabobs and Snow Leopard Jerky, though we both know the best dipping sauce is made from a reduction of the tears of those scurrying African children. Mmmmm...... despair.

    I appreciate the listen and the kind words, along with much appreciated advice. Thanks again.

    Yo, Sliderbro.

    You speak like someone who has never been smacked in the fucking mouth.
    That's OK, the Nomad has the remedy.*

    Don't worry about the late reply. There are older track comments of mine that you still haven't answered. But maybe you have a limit to how much you want to discuss, for instance, Tally Pruit. The Nomad has no such limit.

    I think I covered most of the notable points of your fine track last time except for the drums, which have improved so much in the last couple of years.

    "Unforgiving"

    I told you sliding about was tricky. Such a combination of careful listening and reacting very quickly to wrongness with micro slide wiggles. Sometimes playing faster or more aggressive stuff is like doing some dangerous physical activity at high speed, navigating by feel and having confidence that you just will hit the right notes and stay in time and so on. You can get away with a bit more wrongness when it's fast or aggressive but when slower you need to be accurate and tasteful with your notes and movements.

    More Ear Than Eye is a potential track title.

    Sliderman says hi and asks if you can be in Manila next Thursday afternoon for your first Sliderbro mission.

    Good luck in court. Try not to fall asleep or fart out loud. Silent is OK and would have to be very violent to put you in contempt of court.

    Your case could be that of a goat-fucking murderer. He or she leaves a fucked goat at the scene of multiple murders. It takes a wily old alcoholic detective about to retire to spot this key piece of evidence overlooked by all the other Missouri cops.

    Or the case could be Cynthia D and Tally P teaming up and reoffending. Will The Evanator send them back to the big house?

    I had not heard of Silent Lucidity so I Googled that shit. Might listen later.

    Thanks again for my Hypnoculative Xmas present.

    Yo, Sliderman.

    I've yet to hear any new Puscifer. The Mission and Potions are the latest I've heard. Not been looking for anything new lately. I'm going to grab Karnivool's latest pretty soon. 3 years old and I've still not acquired it.

    "There are older track comments of mine that you still haven't answered."

    No doubt. I usually move on and focus on the present track after a few days of the last track being on here. I've answered a few old ones that had things requesting response, but I've been trying to not leave any new comments unanswered.

    Court went quickly. No farts (from me, anyway). Dude had 2 counts Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and 2 counts Child Endangerment. Basically, a young gangsta thug went down the street to another thug's house who owed him money and brandished his gun as a sign of intimidation and thug-mastery, and the guy's 2 little kids were there and saw it. That's it. Not a goat in the case. Shame.

    Having no children, therefore no protective parental instinct, the prosecution eliminated me as a juror. They got rid of the old, young and childless. You know, the happy people.

    Evan, fucked Dwight Yocum. Johnny Cash grabbed his ankles and he hollered when I poked 'em.

    Appreciated. I'm not really trying to make different music, just not a fan of the formulas that are repeated constantly. Rock is awful now. Four whole-note verses and choruses. Bland background music, only there for the vocals to sit on. I hate radio.

    Thanks again.

    Very interesting style here! I guess, aside from the fact that the intro made me turn it up (a trait which I like fully and appreciate), the more metal influenced part was my favorite idea contained here... mostly due to your guitar and bass work. Some of the less layered sections of drums reminded me of various groups, including Led Zeppeling and Echo And The Bunnymen. Can't be bad can it? Either way, this was pretty inspiring to hear, as I've been hoping to do more slide recordings with that guitar I built about a year ago. It seems like that is it's specialty, so I've got to do what I've got to do. I'd love to hear you incorporate more recordings of your own percussion and drums in the future. I think it could bring things up to a totally different level. Sounding good! Fave!

    Hey, Patrick. Thanks for giving this one a listen.

    The heavy part is probably my favorite as well, but I also really like the lap-steep leads. It's always nice to get new instruments and let your mind wrap around them. Keeps the noodle malleable. I say that, but I just got a smartphone and I am CERTAIN it was making me dumber, so I took everything off of it, so it's just a damn phone now. That's better.

    I will be doing more recording of percussion in the future. My frog guiros can't be in everything, but they can make an appearance from time to time. I'll have to build an arsenal.

    Thanks again for the listen!

    Exceptional work! Must be one of your best, if not the best. That transition with the cowbell tone is one of a rare genius and the monsterous chorus literally glued me on the seat and left me breathless! Simply fantastic...would be very pleased if there was a download option!:) Faved !

    Ah, thank you! The cowbell part probably comes from my love of the song "Acid Rain" by Liquid Tension Experiment. Great use of it there.

    Thank you, Orlando. You are one of the ones who always give a listen and a comment. I appreciate your time. I'll try to give you more of mine this year.

    Thanks again.

    Merry mothafuckin' Xmas and a merry yo ho ho to the bassiest bro I know.

    Now with added slide balls, which have well and truly dropped.

    You're just one day late with my Xmas present but it was well worth the wait as there's some total badassery on display here.

    If you ended this at 2:28 it would be an awesome track and right up there with the finest you've made.

    First couple of secs sound like a nice warm pad and then we're into some pretty tasty sliding about. No wimpy country winge at all. Sliderman totally approves and is ready to recruit you as Sliderbro for part-time worldwide slide missions.

    Background bongoey percussion is working just fine.

    0:52 delicate riff is mildly Tooly but also effective, which is the main thing.

    1:04 is so firmly up the Nomad street, with its Middle Eastern desert vibe.

    Very laidback and funky kind of Mali desert blues (see a group called Tinariwen).

    1:51 and the desert bombing campaign has begun! Total badassery right up another of the Nomad's favourite streets. The one filled with killer riffage and balls flying wildly all over the place.

    2:04 lead is melodic and reminds me a little of what I was getting up to in Chasm (heavy low riffage and melodic chilled lead guit fiddle).

    2:28 battle aftermath back out in the desert.

    2:51 return of the slide is cool. You've totally got the hang of this with your first attempt, Daniel San. Must be beginner's luck.

    3:15 nice sort of cowbell, the kind of thing I'd stick in and we're back to the badass as it had to return.

    3:51, again, would be just fine for an ending but you just can't stop yourself adding more and more nice shit.

    3:52 new part is very cool and bright and sunny and bouncy. Then bass g (hey, I'd totally forgotten about that) and drums return 4:03 to add some weight and rock vibe. Slide slides back in (the only way it can).

    Fadeout ending is very tasteful and so much better than many of your others.

    This has got to be the most Nomadic/Nomadesque/Slidermanish track you've made. Have I been any influence at all or is it just a complete coincidence?

    With these hypnoculars I really can see for thousands of miles and even see you sitting proudly in your wide Missouri landscape, happy with your fine new creation and continued musical evolution.

    Nomad, still pissing all over The Evanator's black kettle, with no intention of stopping before the New Year.

    Well, the holidays are finally behind us. That shit took forever. Been a bad month. I wont go into it, but sorry for the late reply.

    Pretty happy to hear the opinions on the lap-steel parts. It's a slippery slope, and takes more ear than eye. Unforgiving. I was picking on it yesterday and stumbled upon the verse to "Silent Lucidity". No cover coming, just thought it was neat.

    "First couple of secs sound like a nice warm pad"

    A stretched and reversed lap-steel chord.

    "Background bongoey percussion is working just fine."

    That's my Guiro. I'll soon be putting pictures of them, and the lap-steel, on the thread "Show Your Studio", or whatever it was called.

    "Have I been any influence at all or is it just a complete coincidence?"

    Don't know. I really just play what comes out. Though, anything I listen to, and like, has to have some kind of effect.

    Next track has still not been started, though I've had a vocal line stuck in my head for a couple weeks, and that's probably going to be the intro. Mean Motor Scooter may be the title. Don't know. I've not opened the DAW for over a week. Wife has been on vacation, and I've not had the time in the evening to write or record.

    I hope everything is going well for you. I'm writing this at 5:30 a.m., waiting to go to the Court House for Jury-Duty. Surely the most fun day of my life. I can think of nothing I'd rather do. Could be a murder, could be a goat-fucker. Coin flip out here. Time will tell!

    Evan, done hung the guilty with the innocent.

Vocals by Arthur Granquist, guitar by the great Kevin Lysen, drums by Marc Karmatz, also the recording engineer.

The idea musically was to take some rock and some bluegrass elements, mash 'em up and see what happened.

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.
