Fool for You

This is a remix of a song I first posted around 18 months ago, apologies in advance to those that may have already heard it. Normally I wouldn't repost an old song with a new mix, but this one has been a bit of a challenge to get right and I'm hoping to get some feedback on the mix.

Christiane and I have done 21 songs together at this point and are thinking about putting out a CD, just for the pure fun of it. No ambition about making any money or even breaking even 'cause no one buys music these days, but hey, only live once smile

Drums: BluesRockShuffle
Bass: 420 Electric Blues
Keys: 425:Organ, B3, Background Blues

Lyrics/vocals: Chris Spruit.
Two guitar parts are from me, I redid the rhythm guitar for this version.

Mixed in reaper using waves plugins, also used neutron on most of the tracks. Mastered in Ozone 7.

All comments pro and con most welcome!

Wow, great work on this! I love the vocals on this, the tonality of her voice makes it sounds extremely unique and really gives the tune extra character. That groove is infectious too! This would sound stunning live, I have no doubt. Not to mention - that guitar solo is fantastic!

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Dave, maybe it's just the mood I'm in today, but man that track sounds extra good!! It's got such a deep rich sound to it! The vocal work is perfect as well as that hot solo in the middle! Listened to every second of it and it's great!! Thanks, Torrey

Dave,

I didn`t hear your first mix but love this one.
Incendiary guitar and Christiane`s vocals always have just the right amount of attitude ( for want of a better word).
I know nothing about CD sales, but am confident your disc will be a gem!

Hi Dave,

Love Blues Rock and this is a great example of the genre. Love that bass line - a real grabber! Love everything about this one. Nice work!

Terrific blues, Dave. Your guitar is on fire.

I think Chris' vocal needs some clarity added - just a bit - it gets a little lost in the mix in the beginning. It might just need a small bump in volume (1 dB maybe) or an EQ bump in the upper mids (that is just a guess... maybe around 1K? and again, just a slight bump - nothing dramatic). A subtle lift.

Everything else sounds great.

Wonderful song with excellent vocals and precise tasty guitar.
As far as the mix I see there is a suggestion of bringing the vocal up a bit and I'd probably drop the volume of the guitar in the verse just a touch (not sure what's gotten into me suggesting a guitar volume drop?).....Otherwise sounds great.

Thanks, Deryk! I'm a big fan of her voice too of course, lots of personality there. Thanks for the props on the solo too!

Thanks Robert! (I think "attitude" is a great word to describe Christiane's vocals BTW)

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
