Solid rockin' track tv and very much sounds like the Zep with Jimmy on his Les Paul. You can really play man ! Yeah I love your variations with the chords and finger picking combinations, sweep picking, hammer-ons, pull-offs etc. Very reminiscent of Pages playing style. Zeppelin was such a great band! Man listening to this I may have to get the Led out and go immerse myself. Love it tv, instant fave !

Thanks, Neo. Yes, Zep is one of my all-time faves. The first 4 or 5 songs I taught myself on guitar were Zep. Stairway was the very first and then Black Dog followed by Rock and Roll. They basically got me into guitar and music in general. I appreciate the kind words.

Cheers.

No secrets. I will break it down as best I can. If you have other questions feel free to ask.
There are 10 active tracks. Two tracks are Addictive Drums. One is the Intro the other the rest of the Drums. There are 2 Guitar tracks. There are 2 Bass Tracks. Lastly 3 Keyboard tracks. All tracks have a 5 band EQ and Guitar Rig 5. Guitar Rig 5 on the drums is Deep and Wide setting. The guitar Rig settings on the guitars are Right side One May Left Billy Dual Grange. The bass is Precise Bottom and Wide Stereo, both panned to the middle. The 3 Keyboard parts are Izotope Iris 2, Massive, Vox V.
On the Master I have Izotope Ozone 5. The setting is 3 Band Master Instrumental with Slow Dynamics.
I hope that helps.

Yo. Some damn solid rock here.

Good, crunchy guitar tone and bass is also powerful.

0:25 I hear a filter swept synth playing a very small role. More of that sort of thing could make this kind of track more interesting.

Good timing in your playing and I like the triplet stuff around 1 min for a while.

Drums are busy and pretty good.

This does sound like a well played live jam so could do with a bit more variation to break all that riffage up. Maybe drop the guitar for a bit and open up into a bass and drums section then perhaps bring guitar back in playing some subtler, gentler stuff. Build back up to the balls out riffage.

Good stuff.

Thanks, Brother...will look into expanding the synth stuff. I have a solo or two that I laid down but I didn't like it enough to include it in the mix right now. Needs tweaking.
I like the idea of maybe dropping or minimizing the guitar for a bit and letting the bass shine. Thanks for the idea and for taking the time to give it a listen and comment. Much appreciated.

Great old school rock feel on this one T.V.
Guitars sound killer with the overdrive and tuned down a semitone.Those Asus4 chords open up the chorus nicely.
It sounds like you are playing the whole track live on the guitar which keeps the interest as your touch has a great loose feel giving variation to the hammer-on riffage.A sweet moment being at 3:30!
My only critique would be- maybe take the sting out of the cymbals.
Great job. Rhodesy

Thanks, Rhodesy, appreciate the feedback and you giving it a listen.
You are correct I did play the whole song live on both Guitar and bass. I also took your advice and went in and EQ'd the drums to try and take the sting out of the cymbals. Thanks for pointing that out.
Appreciate you giving it a listen.

Oh yeah, definitely Zep influenced :D Sounds good, Jimmy Page would be proud. Now you just need to get Robert Plant to sing for you!

Thanks...if you have Plant's number can you give him a ring and see if he is free? :)

Thanks for listening.

Great track as usual TV!

Your guitar is brutal good and the Addictive tone is very much connecting to the Zep tone...

Hats off, Danke

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 : BIG UPDATE 26/02/2014 - So, this was an 18 min track that I have now successfully split in two. 2nd half I uploaded a few weeks ago (Things That Should Always Be, with the bouncy 2 min reggae intro). This is the first half, which has a new mix, a mega chill, meditative ending and a little jazz thrown in for good measure. Takes a few minutes for beat to really kick in. Constantly evolving electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic drums and lead banjo driven by fat, busy 80BPM grooves with a bit of a reggae and shuffle feel. Also: synth choir voices, dulcimer, violin, cello, shimmering pads. Builds up gradually to nice and rocking and then gets taken back down for the big comedown chill. I really don't know what sort of genre this is except 'far out'. I think it sounds more like a live band than one guy playing instruments and manipulating a DAW. Not my best track but a bit of blissful, sunny island fun. Real positive vibe here so I hope you give it a chance to unfold and unfurl. Sit back, clear your schedule and immerse yourself in these trippy sonic experiments cooked up deep in my off-planet underground laboratory. I have to send the MP3 to Earth via space courier (not cheap).

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.
