Description : Hi all,
Well here is a short tune...a little less than 2 minutes. It is a indie/punk/alt. rock tune I was playing around with. It starts out with an elec. 12 string guitar, a UK rock organ setting on my M3, bass, guitar, and drum loops I buy.

See what you think
(Tallinn is the capital of Estonia in case your wondering about the name). :-)

    Explosive. Forceful and rhythmic at a time. The sound reminds me of a large Spanish group has 30 years of road.

    Hi Vicen,
    This tune is a little short unfortunately, but at the time, I couldn't think of anything else to put in it once I got up to speed. Glad you like it though.

    The panning of the guitars... bit of a lost art form. This track moves thru a few different grooves. The boppy middle & ending section reminded me of the band 311 except you play guitar better than they do. LOL!

    Hello d2d.

    Thanks for reviewing this tune and the great comments you left. I apparently didn't get an e-mail notice about your review or else I would have replied long ago. Sorry about being so late. I'll review one of your tunes as well in kind.

    There are a lot of tricks a person can use. It is a matter of just experimenting.

    I am in the process of doing a 'Crunch' type tune now and that has the guitars panning and a phasing sound as well.

    Thanks again for your review...

    ahh

    Damn.. You are like a producing machine...
    Next song FUNK!!??!?!
    lol

    ok..

    Personally, on the drums, I feel like they should be MORE "AHHHH!!!" volume wise... it is punk anyways???

    More CYMBALS! Louder KICK!!!! (by the way, this is just a fan of punk talking...)

    Very cool!

    Another thing.. and I mean.. I amm SOOOO guilty about this, is that I lay my drums MIDI, and I do all this work on them, BUT, I never Move the Midi marker off the Beat!
    Do you know what I mean?... Like.. a real drummer will sometimes be off just that little bit.. And it just fits..
    I feel.. just listening, that you could definitely do that with the drums here...
    but DAMN! Good job on those rolls!!!!!
    sounds great!
    Something that i have been practicing.. well.. not necessarily practicing as i haven't written anything in a while with midi, but I will CLOSE my eyes.. and try and match the LOOPED part...
    I haven't had a decent song in months tho....

    I really dig it, but it's too short, and without vocals... i just feel... like something is missing...
    You should just do a 2 minute solo!!!!!!

    Hello Abe,
    Funk....? I could as I do have a number of Funky things on my Korg keyboard unit. Plus guitar stuff too that I could put in.

    Louder drums? Could have, but am just trying to balance things out so as to make sure the lead is heard.
    The kick comes out nice if your playing it on bigger speakers. If your listening to these songs on 1" computer speakers, you won't hear much bass or drum stuff.
    On my system, the kick drum is punchy and tight.
    In fact to me, the best sound I have made from a kick as far as 'punch'.

    I hardly use MIDI anymore. Too much time messing around with it. I just use real recorded drums from www.betamonkeymusic.com these days.

    I do know what you mean about not trying to make every beat perfect as then it sounds mechanical. I do have several rhythm settings that will swing the drums so they are not right on and that will give them a better feel.

    Just haven't experimented with that section yet. ;-)

    Yes, the song is too short. I started it at a reasonable speed, then when it speeded up, there was no stopping it.. ha ha.

    Thanks for you review as always,
    Randy

    Had some old Grinderswitch and Molly Hatchet feel to it with a Haight Ashbury organ to chew on. I like how you mesh everything. Once you get your drum transitions smoothed out and some more ticks on the clock than I'll be downloading this one. I look forward to more. Hogscald

    Hello there Hogscald,
    I appreciate your taking the time to liten to this tune and giving a review back. I value and appreciate your comments very much and am glad you enjoyed it.

    I usually make my tunes longer than this, but once I got going faster, there was no turning back. I'll have to agree with you on the sections where there is are two fast drum rolls to try and squeeze in. It just about makes it.

    I would be happy to listen to any music you put up, so contact me when you do.

    Thanks again for your review.

    Cool segue into the main groove...I can hear some vocals laying over this(how good would it be to be able to sing as well!)..touches of Southern rock..I always enjoy listening to your work Randy..apart from the great musicianship you bring to any of your tracks you have an obviously wide array of influences and it's cool to recognise snatches here and there..I genuinely feel sorry for the youth of today they only get exposed to mediocre stuff at best..not like our generation eh..lol super composition!..cheers Dave :)

    Hello again Dave,

    Glad you liked this tune as well. As I mentioned many times, I try and do my best and to make quality recordings....as they'll be floating around on the Internet forever...even after I am gone.

    My influences are many. I play what I want to hear and what I hear in my head or dream about some nights.
    I'll be 65 next month and so I am really old enough to like all the 60's-80's music mostly. Didn't care for Disco that much though! :-)

    Young folks should really go back in time and hear some of the older tunes. They'll be surprised probably at some of the intricate music played back in the day.

    This particular tune was just something I put together with nothing special in mind at the moment. One thing led to another. Sometimes just switching channels on TV will give me an idea from a partial tune I hear.

    Thanks again for your review.

    OKAY! listened on my system. it's all perfect. those headphones are worse than i thought. everything is right where it needs to be. the panning of the instruments is done perfectly and i love the battling guitars with one on the left and one on the right. awesome. ignore my last review, you know what you are doing and i can offer no advice at all except make it as long as humanly possible. i dont want it to end.
    great work.

    Hi again TJ,

    Perfect eh? ha ha,
    Well, I think there's always room for improvement on most anything. I suspect most everyone will listen to Loopermans, and other web sites, tunes thru normally lame computer speakers and cheaper headphones.

    It's only when you download it and play it via another way will you hear it as it was made......in my case, using a KRK 6" monitor speakers with a 10" KRK subwoofer.
    Then your in heaven when you have a good 'near field' system to mix by!

    I would suggest getting a pair of Sennheizer HD 280 closed headphones. Around $100 here and there. Rated very good by many analysts. They are very loud, but no volume control on them. Just adjust the volume going into them.

    If you by chance have listened to any of my other tunes...like 'Heavy Metal Highway' via the old way, prepare to be blown away with a good speaker system. I think that is my all time highest played tune on here or TT. The drums on that kick ass!

    Okay, bye for now...and thanks for taking the time to write back.

    randy!
    as always. impeccable guitar work, you can make those strings tell stories my friend! i really dig the ominous organ/synth introducing the guitar. agree with Barry, wish it was longer! Production was top notch for the most part. everything sounding really crisp. im listening on crap headphones but the only criticism i have (which may be a direct result of said headphones) is the seperation of the instruments frequencies. a little EQ on the drum track and guitars to keep them all in their own space, so to speak should do the trick. its nothing major. im just trying to find something helpful to add haha. but yeah the drums got overshadowed by the guitars at times which can be dangerous if you lose track of the beat. its the backbone after all eh?
    hope this helps in some way =]
    again, always a fan, amazing work.

    Hi there TJ,

    I appreciate your reviewing my last tune and I also very much appreciate the comments on how to improve the song by EQ the guitar and drums a little differently.

    The drums, especially the kick drum, I am proud of myself as I finally got that solid punch sound that hits you in the chest.
    You will hear it clearer on a bigger speaker system with a subwoofer.

    The guitar tones, I basically wanted a raw solid crunch sound without effects at the beginning part, and I think I got what I was wanting.

    But to be sure, EQing will certainly separate the parts better as you mentioned.

    So thanks again and I will review some of your tunes tomorrow as it's time for bed now. I have to get up in 4 hours for work!

    Randy

Description : I wrote this song some time ago when I was living in Florida. It's even more true today.

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.

Every day is a struggle to do better in a crazy world.

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.

This song was supposed to be a Bedlam Kids track, but due to the low (none) interest of Pete on continuing that project, I'll upload the remaining tracks as instrumentals as soon as I can.

For now, here's a song written almost 7 months ago, it's called Simple Things.

Hope you enjoy it!!!

XpekT.

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.
