Description : Time for a Funk tune as I have never tried this genre before. This is a 3 part song. The first part....after the solo lead, is a Bluesy Slide guitar type with wah-wah pedal on silde, and heavy drums.....
2nd part is a funky rhythm I made on my Korg......
3rd. part is another funky tune I made with the fastest lead guitar parts made using sample loops.

    Hi there again Neil,

    Thanks so much for listening and reviewing this song I did back in 2009. It was a trial and error for me as I never did a 'funky type' before. Lol.
    Anyways, I appreciate your comments very much.

    Very Good!I love the different variations of Funk you got goin' on,I'm new here and almost gave up on playing until I found this community,everyone has been so welcoming and every day I find more wonderful artists like yourself.I'll be listening to more of your music.You know I played a Les Paul then switched to a Tele about 17yrs ago and never looked back,you really can make it sound any way you want.I wanted to introduce myself and complement your song and style.

    Hello there Allen,

    Nice that you could get around to enjoy this site more. Yes, there is lots of good talent on here and some think I am one.. ;-) But I am an old guy...just turned 66 Sunday.

    Anyways, I am glad you enjoyed my funky tune. It isn't particulary the type I like, but I have a lot of settings on my Korg M-3 that has these types of sounds....so I wanted to try a song in this genre.
    If you read my profile, then you know a lot about me already. The Beatles I met in person in France, influenced me to learn guitar. From there I never looked back. Had my own band and did sound for others.
    Now my power plant job won't let me play in a band because of the varied work hours....so I make music all myself using a combo of my instruments and loops using Pro Tools.

    Presently, I own 4 Fender Telecasters. 2 of them are limited edition Buck Owens guitars...more for an investment.
    If you want to hear some "Chicken pickin" tele sounds, then check out this tune I put together a short time ago. It is called 'Randy's Chicken Pickin'. I love that style and will do another.

    Okay, take care and if you have any questions, let me know.

    Randy

    Hello there Rei,

    A little slow in getting back to you. Am glad you enjoyed this tune as it is a different than my normal songs. I wanted to try a funky mix as I have the keyboard that can do it and also gives me ideas for new tunes.
    I will check out some more of yours and give feedback as well. I know a lot of artist are on Reverbnation, but I haven't gotten there yet. myself.
    On Lafango (old Talenttrove name) I have over 156,000 plays now of my 26 tunes posted thus far.

    Take care,
    Randy

    Guitars ! Guitars ! Guitars ! ... a blazin' on your tracks and this one is no exception. You got it as funky but I can hear just the slightest hint of country rock in there also. Whatever the style : this track has got it ! well put together and another classic.

    Hello Daniel,
    I added this tune in July, so that was quite awhile ago and thus you missed it back then. Anyways, I am happy that you got to hear it and you liked it as well.
    I tried 3 different styles in this tune including slife guitar which I don't seem to hear on here out of 267,000+ members. Strange isn't it?

    I'll stop by your page and see whats new with you.

    Hello there Majucarma,
    I am sorry that I didn't reply to you much sooner as I usually do when I get a review. So perhaps I never got notified originally or I was just too busy as I was from Oct. - Dec.
    Anyways, thanks for your review and I'll review some of your tunes as well.

    So thanks again for your comments and I am glad you enjoyed this tune.

    guitar parts are PERFECT!
    Great tones, but more importantly great feel.
    I suggest you get a bigger sounding kick drum for the wah-slide section. very Jeff Beck-ish sound. NOT easy to pull off. YOU are great!

    Hello D2d,
    Seems like I just left you a couple reviews. ha!

    Anyways, I appreciate your comments about the funk mix. I can usually get any guitar sound I want thru the help of software VST's.

    I can agree with you on the kick drum not standing out more. Sometimes you really just need to stand back and listen to the song the next day, and pretend it is the first time you've heard it, and make adjustments.

    Thanks a lot for your comments, they are always very helpful.
    Later,
    Randy

    I'm new here, I've listened to some of your creations...err..uhmm..how I can I put this lightly ...Holy Jesus F-----g Christ !!!!! Outstanding, a departure from your other stuff, which is .... err.. how can I put this.. ( please see earlier "Holy... etc ).
    I started playing in the late 60's but gave it up after about 10 years or so, snce then once in a while popping my head up every now and then ( once with bagpipes - don't judge now my lad - we all had our dark moments ). Anyhow, Thank you for showing some of these young punks what us older cats can do. Now, if you will excuse me, it's time for me to forget something really important and...Oh look !!! nap time.

    Hi there BCway,
    Don't recall a review from you before, so I am glad I triggered something so that you'd write me one here.
    I am thrilled you enjoyed this tune. I did it in 3 parts only because I was working on these 3 for a time and decided to bunch them together is all. I try and get a tune out once a month.

    I see your up there in years as well and that is good that your still making music in one form or another. (Real or loop based)
    The bagpipes you mention, I actually love the sound of them and thought they really sounded so unique. However, my interest in them never got me to buy any. Don't even know what they would cost?

    I have a setting on my Korg M-3 for bagpipes, but it isn't that good actually. So maybe one of these days I'll put together a Celtic/Irish/Scottish type of tune and send it out. I already have some ideas that you'd probably like to hear. Myself, I guess I am English with a bit of everything else thrown in...so my grandmother says...like a stray dog.

    So again, thanks a lot for your review and am also happy to hear that you have checked out some of my earlier tunes.
    Randy

    Hello there Chris,

    Say, I appreciate you being one of the few...so far...that have left a review for me and I'll do the same for you after this.
    Am glad you enjoyed this tune. I never made a Funk tune before....Blues, yes.

    So I wanted to give it a try. The guitar tones are varied depending on what amp simulator I am using. I just got into Line6 VST's as they have many amps and cabs to choose from, plus all the known effects as well. Mix and match in any combo. Cost $99 tho for the non-professional package.
    I have a lot of amp simulators already that came with my Pro Tools as well.....so I am just trying the Line6 stuff out.

    Thanks for your review and for your great comments on the solo as well.
    A Trance tune is next!

    Randy

    Hey Randy you've been cutting the stallions out from the herd again!..I like the panning on the percussive instruments with the bass centre lining...this works really well! great mix....the guitar sound is floating superbly on top of these grooves..I'll say it again..a fantastic spread!...your mixes have taken a quantum leaps since you joined Looperman..they were always good to start with but now their top class....You could cut it as a producer irrespective of you instrumental skills...fantastic playing by the way!..cheers Dave :)

    Hi there Dave,

    I was hoping you'd take time to catch my latest funk tune. I don't really want to poll individual players whenever I produce a new tune. Makes it sound like I really need reviews. ;-)

    But anyway, you found this one and I am glad you enjoyed it. The bass part, and actually all parts are necessary for a good Funk tune I guess from some others that I have heard. This was my first one and I wanted to make it stand out.

    So I figured a good solid bass line with a clear tone would be nice. Fender has such a nice sound anyways, and so that is what you hear. (Precision Bass).
    Then panning the other instruments and little guitar riffs here and there make it a 'busy' tune, but seems to work well together.

    I have heard of James Brown's fast rhythm guitar, but I didn't want that type of sound for this one. (song #2)

    Looperman has indeed helped me grow as a musician since my first country tune. Listening to other's tunes on here and getting feedback is important for growth. And.....reading several different books on Mastering and Audio in general has helped a lot to understand about the mechanics of audio.

    I suppose I could go into Mastering others tunes, but I barely have time to get mine done because of working so much overtime.
    Bye for now and thanks again for your nice review.
    Randy
