Let Tom Sing Instead

Hi all,

I started this song with vocals on 9/11/2012 and played around with heavy Melodyne effects but never liked it. On 1/10/2013 I rearranged it as an instrumental and totally forgot about it.
Now I rediscovered it, made some smaller changes and a final mix.
Originally it was called “Sing” but I changed it to “Let Tom Sing Instead” referring to the sax tracks by Tom Keenlyside I used to build up the melody.

Drums: EZ Drummer
RTs used:
RT514_Bass,El,Funk Slap Ev100
RT1435_Gtr,El,Rh,JzFnkGrvChord110
RT1437_Piano,El,JazzFunkGroovin 110
RT716_Sax, Tenor, Soloist Rock Boogie Ev 160 (Bluesy) Tom Keenlyside
RT1651_Gitarre,El,Sol JzFnkEv110blz
I added some Garritan Organ and some Session Horns.
I hope you like it. Comments appreciated.

Tom sang it well!! Really cool track. That solo guitar is amazing, and it fits like a glove. Really a great job putting all this together into a seamless, flawless piece of music!! Take care. Greg

Guenter,

Good listening. Energetic. Blistering fast...

Excellent mix (as always). Each instrument stands on it's own.

The solo guitar is interesting. Picking up the tempo turned it into a good rock soloist - never considered that one before... The horns sound good. The bass is cool.

I always wonder about choosing EZDrummer over a RealDrum. Any reason for that? Do you still use it? Do you like it?

Enjoyed.

Ha! Guenter. The title of this one got me before I even listened. I just did a gig at a charity event and all everybody wanted was for "Tom to sing instead". Eventually I packed up my stuff and let "Tom" take over...

Wonderful use of Band in a Box. Great stuff!

This song's drums are nearly 4 years old. Meanwhile I've mostly used RealDrums due to laziness. It depends on what you want to do. The advantage of EZDrummer is that you can edit every single note. In this song there is a 2 bar interlude which couldn't be done with RealDrums.

Wow that was fast!!!

I would have let the guitar come in after a short into..around the 7 second mark.. it kinda took me in a surprising way that the guitar started wide open from the first note.

That's some cool prog jazz stuff going on there.... love that bass. and the drums are holding it together nicely. sweet riffs and fills.
