Like a harder-edged version of ¨Land of Confusion¨ from Genesis meets Hearts ¨City´s Burning¨. I love the sharpness of the percussion. I want to hear the finished version of this with leads and vox, sounds great.

Thanks Bro. I appreciate the listen and feedback. I am trying to get a collab for vocals. I have been getting better at vocals but this is probably beyond my skill set. :) If I have to I will take a stab at it though.

Oh wow! Heck of a track!

I hope it's still a work in progress, 'cause there's more then something to fix in eq/mix/mast... e.g. the cymbals are too high, then throughtout the percussions are buried down by the guitar, which are strong but too dominant. About vocals, the rough cut as you called is imo is so good as you present us, maybe try some eq. The general track has the midtones too hard, and in some parts distortion is present.

Anyway, putting aside the technicalities, the whole track for me is promoted with full marks, the arrangement is essential but not messed up, the general atmosphere earns a lot.

Waiting for finished (and fixed) track!

Thanks, and yeah it is still very much a work in progress. I took your advice and swapped out drum kits and turned the mic down from above to cut the cymbals down. I also dropped the guitars down in the mix a touch and cleaned up the EQ on them. Thanks for the listen and feedback.

nice track..
pretty good for a "rough cut" as you called it..

topvega replied 19th Apr 2020 - 4 years ago
Thanks. I felt the vocals were pretty good performance-wise but I need actual lyrics in spots instead of the fake filer words. I usually come up with the vocal melody first and record it with fake words and then go back and right lyrics. Thanks for the listen and feedback.

This has a 60's era acid rock sound going on I really like. It's heavy man. Something like Blue Cheer or the MC5. A lot of people today don't know bands like that anymore. This is a great track.
topvega
topvega replied 19th Apr 2020 - 4 years ago
Thanks. I tend to go for the Acid Rock or Stoner Rock vibe. Both of those are great bands and an awesome compliment.

on Tired by topvega
Hey there, I just discovered your tracks on looperman. I love the classic rock sound you have going on. You catch a vibe that I've been looking to find. I've listened to like 10 of your songs now and loved every one. Just my kind of music.

I wanted to get in contact with you because I noticed you don't have vocals for many of your tracks. I'm a singer (Amateur) and I would love to have permission to sing over some of your songs. I've been searching for almost a year for some instrumentals that match my voice as well as yours. My skill level doesn't match your musicianship but I feel I could come up with something worth listening to. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to my music but here's one of the songs I've written vocals for to get an idea of my voice. https://soundcloud.com/user-414706677/theblues. Thanks for your time!

Sorry, I am just getting to reply. Life has been busy. Feel free to help yourself. Let me know if you want the stems and if I can find the original masters I will render the stems for you. Thanks for the interest.

on Tired by topvega
Wow, that's good VG, TV ! Great job on the vocals too. Good raw sound and does kind of have that late sixties early seventies hippy rock vibe to it. Lyrics are a bit OT with the baby stuff, but if Tommy James' baby did the Hanky Panky, why not ! I dig it bro !!
topvega
topvega replied 23rd Mar 2019 - 5 years ago
Thanks, Neo. Yeah, the lyrics need refinement for sure. I tend to always go for vocal melody 1st and then try and expand on lyrical content. Quite a few of my tracks that have vocals don't even have actual words, just sounds.
I have been trying to get more involved with Virtual Instruments. I suck at keyboard and MIDI arrangement but have been getting better. Thanks for the feedback.

on Meth Mouth by topvega
Thick, heavy, raw. The reverb and effects soften it, I think that is good production. Sounds like you were going for it on the vocals, attitude comes across well in vocals. A bit trippy, psychedelic in a way. The track rocks.

My suggestion would be to work on the vocals and the delays on them, to make the initial impact of the words stronger. I love delay, prob my fav effect. I listened both on speakers and headphones, thought the vox could be louder, more out front.

Thanks for the listen and feedback Wayne. I agree with everything you brought up. Vocals need to be refined and brought up in the mix. I am still going through old hard drives looking for the master. All I have right now is a rendered mix of where I left off at. I hope I can track them down. Would love to try and polish this.

Thanks again.

on No doubt still lingers by topvega
I think this is a bit different offer than usual...a certain degree of departure from basic rough rock style...leaning to something more progressive, I think, and that's not bad by any means...on the contrary...it demonstrates ever evolving creativity of a musician as yourself. To me this was very rewarding listening experience. Keep up with good job my friend!

Thank you my Freind. Yeah I do tend to lean more towards rough Rock most times but I do occasionally get inspired but other genres. I even have a few Rap/ Hip-Hop tracks I am working on. Maybe someday they will get posted.
As always I appreciate the listen and feedback.

Hmm not to bad indeed. I dig it though. Indeed not sure about the vocals. But it doesnt sound to bad at all though. So no worries there. If i listen to the ingredients & elements of this track. It does sound like a solid modern rock tune to me though. So yeah overall point of view, you did a prety decent job there. So well done. Anyway keep up the good work. And keep on listening & creating. Cheers

on Cant keep a Good Man down by topvega
@TopVega
I liked the feel of this. The guitar is my favorite part it sounds like several instrumental groups of the 50's for example Lonnie Mack. I think it could stand a break or some tangential excursions, but a vocal may be just he tonic for it. Good job, vig
