Really nice glassy tone - a big Hank Marvinesque sound. Some great sounding parts and harmonies!

Great work here, Ian! It’s got an amazing groove, and I thoroughly enjoyed the guitar work here. Not to mention - the mix here is smooth as butter. It sounds extremely professionally arranged. It goes without saying the guitar you laid down here is superb, but the mixing took it to the next level for me.


Thanks so much for sharing!

Hi Graham and Bluesraveler - thank you so much. The Shadows are part of my Era and my "Live" guitar work, both early Shads and modern Hank Marvin. I guess it must come over in the playing somehow.
Hi Deryk - thank you. If you look at my Sig you'll see that most of my gear is ancient. I tend to work up a non-compressed mix in Cakewalk (in XP Pro) that I basically like the sound of, then open up Adobe Audition and "master" it with what they call Soft Knee Compression. That drops the volume quite a lot but fattens it out so I bring it back to a higher level and just in case there are any spikes, I "normalize" at 99%. I have no idea if that is right or wrong - it just seems to work for me, sometimes better than others.
Cheers
ian

Hello, Ian

Very nice!
The melody is very good.
The guitar play is also great.
This tune reminds me of Liverpool groups in the 60's very much.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi
