Nice bluesy vocal. The lyrics are fun filled and inspired. You even included one of my current favorite words, the wonderfully descriptive-"wonky". Great mix. I enjoyed it all. Tom

Great job - thanks for sharing smile
Thank you for listening and for the kind comments.

Thank you Alan it's much appreciated.

Thank you Torrey. Your music is rockin!

more about the way you accomplish this.
(Way over my head.)
It's all in the use of Aux bus separation. Grouping instrument sends to a different buses by side vs middle and then sending different reverbs to each bus to taste. I'll expand on the recording forum.

We recognized that Jack Pearson RT right from the git go. One of the more under rated blues guitarists around IMO.

Just how many cool lines can you pack in one song man?

Top vocal as always and the piano really lays down the feel.

Your mixing experimentations far exceed mine but whatever you did resulted in a mix that sounds top notch on our monitors. The soundstage is laid out so well.

Kudos Mr Gruve!

J&B

Thank you both so much. I'm experimenting with separating the soundstage by using different verbs to instruments busses group by panning. So all my panned instruments go to one bus and I (am currently- it's a work in progress) might send a spring-like verb with short decay to it. Then my middle instruments (minus drums and bass) I send a more traditional room or hall type verb to taste. Then eq the reverbs to each other to minimize over-stepping frequencies. I'll write this out in the recording forum.

And thank you again!

Thank you Tom. Don't you love it when you have a song where you can use a word like "wonky"!

Man, so good! Lyrics are great, can't add anything more that has already been said. Great vocal and groove.

Cool mix too, the way you have everything panned, definitely a headphone listen!

Lawrence,

That new technique of yours works out fine!
Very cool lyrics (of both of you).
The funky piano is great.

I'm late getting here but I'm that I made it! This is one hell of a great song. It's all been said, vocals, lyrics, mix etc, so all I can add is this is funk at its best.

This is a keeper for sure!
