I found myself thinking of Tom Petty each time
I listened to this. So I get ready to respond,
read the thread, and see that floyd has already
mentioned it. So maybe I'm validated :-)

The mix is outstanding and you sing and play
the heck out of it so keep that engine
running...it ain't wore out.

Terrific.

Cheers.
Richard, I have been spending more time lately getting the drum sound where I want it. Glad you noticed and glad you liked it. Tom

The drive straight into the chorus ramps up the energy. Indie rock with a great Costello vibe. Vocals are terrific too. Hooky hooky hooky - this is how it's done.

A+ my favorite of your rockers.

Josie
Josie, I almost gave up on this one just because of that cliche. I just couldn't seem to come up with a replacement line, so I just went with it. Thanks for the great review! I am flattered. Tom

Bob, Thanks for the comments. I used Scuffham Amps S-Gear. The preset was Vintage Mod Delays. the guitar was an Epiphone Elitist Les Paul. For electric guitars I always record direct. For acoustic guitar I mike it. For steel guitar I mike it through a 69 Fender Deluxe. I stopped playing live a few years ago, but I always used a Voodoo Labs sparkle drive. It is like a dirty amp on one side and a clean boost on the other that you can dial in a great mix. Essentially like the old two amp method using one amp. I thought that may be of some interest to you. Thanks again. Tom

Patrick, That is a good idea about the two guitars. I may try to twin something in the future. Thanks, Tom

Have to disagree, in a small way, with Josie (Sundance) I like that phrase.

Your voice sounds a bit different on this, still good tho' but different somehow, Your guitar, as always, shines cool

[quote]Wanting more and never ever having quite enough
sounds like me and guitars grin

Great song, solid write.

Alyn
ps Herb (Guitarhacker) has a good ear doesn't he?


Alyn, you're right the voice is processed completely different than my normal settings. I turned up the saturation. Just continuing to experiment. Thanks for your kind words and yes Herb has an amazing ear. Tom

One of the best snare sounds I've heard on the forum.

The TP feel continued throughout. Catchy in the same ways that a Petty song is - the combination of the words and music/rhythm and vocal added together and cannot be separated. The guitar under the chorus is nice. Excellent mix - almost forgot to say that - it has become a given...

An excellent rock write. A great listen. Can't get it out of my head...

floyd

floyd, Love me some Petty. Not consciously trying for his sound on this one though. The drums went through many different iterations of EQ until I got them there. Glad you noticed. I probably spent more time on the drums than I ever have before. Thanks for your continued support. Tom

Hi Tommy.

Yeah, that chorus is pure Tom Petty.

I just loved everything about this song.

It has to be one of your very best.

Everything working together and exactly as it should.

Brilliant.
