52 Tracks Project - Week 20 - From Memphis to Cairo - 05/19/16 11:40 AM

Here is the week 20 song for my 52 Tracks Project: From Memphis to Cairo

https://52tracksblog.com/2016/05/19/track-20-from-memphis-to-cairo/

RealTracks for Bass Guitar and Organ. A BIAB MIDI piano track that uses a Logic X Wurlitzer Electric Piano. I increased the velocity to get more crunch from the piano.

I played the electric guitar.

Comments appreciated.

I agree!! I do think this could be done a bit "harder"- A little edge and distortion on the EP/lead guitar, and a more aggressive vocal with more verb. There is an edge/harshness to the lyrics which I feel aren't fully sold with a more mellow arrangement. Still think it's very good! Take care. Greg

Thanks, Greg. I am saving all these comment pages as PDFs and will revisit the 52 songs next year for revisions. You, Floyd, Pat, and a few others have given me great constructive feedback.
