I dig the sticks in the intro.
Laid back groove with a nice rhythmic push and pull from the rhythm guitar.
What are you using for dirty leads through this?
I like the backing guitars growl and the drums seem to fit well. Good stuff.

It's funny you say that about the sticks intro. I have been going through old tracks I have left on my computer and I constantly felt like I need to revisit JamStix again for my drums. They have a certain realistic feel you just can't get with AD or EZ Drummer.
I pretty much use the same thing for all my guitar and bass sounds. Guitar Rig 5 I believe it is. Lots of great sounds in there.

Thanks for the listen and the feedback. Always much appreciated.

Super cool self-jam session here! I was happy to visit your profile and notice something uploaded this year!

I thought the guitar tones were pretty sweet, and your playing style was flowing and enticing as usual. I think you were born to make music like this!

I can't help but wonder about the title, as in if it was put in place before uploading, or if it had some long ago reference. It could mean different thing at different times to different people. I like that in a song!

thank you for sharing this!

Hey, Spiv. Thanks for giving it a listen. I did upload it this year but it is an older project I found on my computer. This is the kind of music I kind of gravitate towards. Bluesy rock is what I was raised on. If I remember correctly the title came from the fact that I had been working on this track for awhile and it was a long time coming till it was completed.
I plan on uploading some newer stuff soon. I have been working on getting better at singing as I am constantly told my music works better with vocals. I don't know any singers so I have to try and get it done myself.

Thaks again.

Hi Topvega,

On the strength of this bluesy rock song, I'm listening to all your tracks on Looperman. Much like Neomorpheus said, this takes me back to playing in a live band (and getting paid next to nothing, but I wouldn't trade the experience for the world). I'm marking this as a fave, because it speaks to my heart. Gotta shake a tail feather on this. Great job.

Thank you very kindly. Always nice to get some great feedback on a track. Most of my tracks are Rock with a few pop and an occasional wild card.

Thanks again.

Great find man ! Its really fresh and raw sounding. This brings back so many memories of playing in bands. Kind of like when the guitar player starts it off with "hey check out this new riff I came up with", and then the other guys will jump in and you end up jamming on it for 10-15 mins. And then its usually forgotten. Is this you and a band or what? Cool track bro, I dig it.

Thanks, Neo. This is me on Guitar (rhythm and lead), Bass and Keyboard. Drums are Jamstick.
It was pretty much the process you described. I came up with the guitar riff and changes and then just went back in and improvised the lead and Organ. Bass was just played like the rhythm track, nothing fancy. I had just started out on bass after playing the guitar for years.
I appreciate the listen and the kind feedback.

Cheers.

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.
