Wow great job here ben. You pretty much nailed this one, even your vocals are damn near perfect here. You can sing. Are you into hot rods and/or the 50's subculture? I actually do a lot of Hot Rod related art and from time to time go to shows and events. Rockabilly music is very popular and there are some fabulous bands out there cranking out some of this music. I dig this track and the only thing I can think of that might add to it or improve it would be a nice harmonica (like the original) or Brian Setzer type guitar lead. Keep rockin bro.
Thanks for your feedback, great to here that others stick to this kind of music too. I would not say I am being in a 50's subculture but same with me , going to events hearing a lot of 50's music , start in Jan'18 playing in a band playing that stuff too :-).What kind of hot rod related art you talking about - I am very interested to see something. thx! Ben
Nice one Ben, the minimalist approach works best with this style of music. It's refreshing to hear something organic here and the slightly rough edges to it all adds a nice authentic rockabilly vibe.
appreciate your feedback :-)
Cool recording! Never heard of the go getters, have to check them out. Needs some bass to even out the mix a little. Vocals sound good, clean and the guitars sound good too. Look forward to hearing TV's mix if he follows through. It's rock and roll and who doesn't want to rock out? Well done!
thanks Wayne for your feedback :-)
sounds good, reminds me of billy idol..great job!!
thanks a lot :-)
This is actually pretty awesome. I would love to have a try at mixing this and mastering it. Any chance you would send me the stems and let me give it a try? I would let you decide if it was good enough to post. Either way, I dug it. Reminded me of Buddy Holly for some reason.
Nice job. I hope I get the chance to mix this for you.
sure, looking forward hearing the final mix, feel free to add things, but would be good to keep the kind of style alive.What do you need me to do ? Sending seperate clean track files (wav, mp3) , also need an email.
I agree with the other comments. Music is great. Vocals are good but need to pop a bit more. Also, would love to hear the lead guitar a little louder in the mix.
I've never heard anything like this in this place!Brilliant.Not just a nice change but really really well done.Great voice.FGreat everything.
yes seems that this place needs a bit more diversion - thanks :-)
Man this is a great sounding track..love your vocals, and some great guitar work.
appreciate your comment - thanks :-)
Ben this instantly brought a smile to my face and transported me back in time what a super voice you have there which fits this genre perfectly i also enjoyed the guitar my fav instrument really well done sir Bravo peace out Robbie.
thanks so much :-)
This one goes back to a bygone era... Gene Vincent, Carl Perkins etc. Personally, I think your vocals suit this style very well. Nice to hear a genre seldom attempted here.
Love the guitar you have going on, sits in the mix big and has a cool tone and effects. The two parts are working great together. Catchy number, rock a billy, early rock n roll feel with a bit of a modern upgrade as well.
Vocals sound good to me, maybe a touch more reverb. I like your version, the drum change before the 2 minute point added an interesting change and took it to a cool place, kind of a surf beat.
Thanks a lot Wayne , appreciate your feedack :-)
i dig the guitar r n blues nice work
Hello .I think you've done a pretty cool work here .it's groovy and yes it rocks .
I love this rockabilly groove. The guitars sound great. There's spaces for the verses, the chorus and the bridge, so it's ready for lyrics, and this is the kind of track that's really easy to write for, the lyrics just jump right out of the music. If I wasn't the shittiest singer on earth, I'd come up with something and share. But I am. A great, honest, down-to-earth piece of music with a beating heart and dancing feet. Great job.
Thanks a lot, appreciate your comments and as mentioned I am a quite bad singer too which is a shame.
This track really does deserve a vocalist. Nice job man!
This is some very authentic rockabilly you have here. Very retro. It's not my preferred type of rock n roll genre but this is really well done.
Great timing on the guitars and an incessant groove, which is what you really need for this sort of style. Proper old time band-based dance music.
1:48 there's even quite a cool little solo.
Well produced though perhaps it could do with a heavier bass sound. And kick drum. That's a bit weak.
Is the ending perhaps too abrupt?
Thanks a lot for your valuable reply, I intentially cutted the mix at 80Hz since it buzzed a lot through my monitors but need to doublecheck with different speakers I guess :-) I had the idea for the outro relatively on short term but wanted to complete the track somehow on the other hand.
Really slick bit of guitar playing and straight up Rock A Billy !I got turned onto Rock A Billy when Brian Setzer and the Stray Cats came onto the rock scene in the 80's. I'm also into Hot Rodding which has embraced the low brow culture and this form of music is very popular.Sounds like you definitely got your rig set up properly and the tone is spot on. Are you in fact playing this on a hollow body, maybe Gibson or Gretsch? The first electric guitar I ever played was my Dads Vintage 1963 Sears Silvertone hollow body.
I dig man, I must hear more !!
Thanks a lot for your stunning feedback, good to hear you love that music too - I am quite diverse in music styles but as well much influenced by my dad hearing elvis and stuff all day long ;) I am not playing that on a hollow body but on an Les Paul with a standard R&R setup but for sure little finetune applied.
Great rockabilly track! Could feel myself being transported!! Hope you find someone to sing/hum on it to complete it! Well done!!! :)
Thanks, appreciate your comments :-)
Hello ,I think you've done a wonderful job here.Well done.Jamid
Thanks Jamid :-)
nice rock/blues work here .beautifull lead guitar and chords .
it's a very cool and lovely track .also you sing really fine .:)
Very upbeat! vocals are great but use just a little something to make it pop. Reverb or slight delayed echo might just do it. Great work!
thanks a lot for valuable comment, I will give it try :-)
Nice Track @Ben1972!!Sounds good :)
Wassup it sounds good! with the beat and the vocals.To me you got like a Elvis Presley type of voice. sometimes you can use compression,reverb,and maybe delays if there's a big enough gap in some spots.there's also vocal harmony which you do a lower pitch ,regular pitch, and then high pitch on a chorus usually.The way you did it sounds great just depends what you feel at the time when adding sound effects.
thanks a lot , I used a little bit of everything, slapback echo, pinch compression and also a very small portion of reverb. Anyhow I will give the multiple harmony pitch thing a try.
Love the bluesy guitars :p Perfect the way it is! A touch of reverb does add a cool sound to vocals, and Evisma nailed it, a million dollar studio would ruin it. After studying and studying mix/mastering and not being happy with the sound I got, I decided more raw and less messed with was they way I preffered my own music.
Thanks a lot , thats exactly the way I feel when mixing / mastering , there is way too much options , knobs and controls , in the end I screwed it all up and start over ending up with a complete different sound.
