Between the Lines, with Rickenbacker - 09/01/15 03:04 PM

My new Rick 12 was delivered today, and I immediately recorded it into Between the Lines, I had left the mix set up waiting for it. I laid down two new tracks, arpeggios and rhythm on the Rickenbacker. So hopefully this is the final definitive mix of the song, tell me what you think.

GAD GAD You'll find no one to tell you, they'll say you're doing fine
GAD GAD but they won't have to sell you, if you read between the lines
GAD GAD Don't ask so many questions, you're talking all the time
GAD GAD You'll learn the situation if you read between the lines

BmA GD Between the lines, leave your cares behind
BmA GD If you want to know the truth, you must read between the lines

GAD GAD Your father never told you, but he knew it all the time
GAD GAD and Mama doesn't scold you, when you read between the lines
GAD GAD a risky situation when you say what's on your mind
GAD GAD but you'll find your motivation if you read between the lines

BmA GD Between the lines, leave your fears behind
BmA GD if you want to know the truth you must read between the lines
BmA GD Between the lines, leave your tears behind
BmA GA if you want to know the truth you must read

DGA DGA break
DGA DGA

GAD GAD Sometimes you get a reason, sometimes no light will shine
GAD GAD but you will find it pleasin', if you read between the lines
GAD GAD They often try to cheat you, mistreat you all the time
GAD GAD but they can never beat you , if you read between the lines

BmA GD Between the lines, leave your cares behind
BmA GD if you want to know the truth, you must read between the lines
BmA GD Between the lines, leave it all behind
BmA GD if you want to know the truth you must read between the lines

BmA GA If you want to know the truth you must read
DGA between the lines
DGA between the lines
DGA between the lines
DGD read between the lines

IMHO Will, it sounds absolutely great with the Rick parts! I know you think it's finished, but consider bringing the lead vocal just a bit further forward and up in the mix, and the backing vocals as well to go along with it. Excellent!

Very enjoyable.

12 string is one of my favorite instruments. It added a lot to the song. Enjoyed it.

Roger McGuinn would be happy with that. Liked it before like it now. The Rickenbacker sounds great.

Nice touch. That solidifies this as a classic 60's genre ...sounds like The Byrds in so many ways.

i listened with your comment in mind, and decided the vocals are in a good place. You can hear all the words, and that's the important thing. I want these songs to be played loud, and don't want my vocal getting in the way of the track.

Will,

This sounded good before, but the Rick just kicks up the energy level, and makes it even better!

Really like it.

yeh,

that sounds really good, I love the sound of the Ricki 12 and re-ordered the strings on my 12str acoustic to the Rickenbaker way!

I enjoyed the listen before but now it has wings grin

Cool tune, took me back in time and to a time when music was really fun.


Really put me in mind of The Byrds, and for some strange reason the 13th floor Elevators, though it does not sound like them.


Cheers,


Billy

Excellent listen. Nice. I love the sound of the Rick but I really like the background harmony tracks.
