I'm re-posting my songs so I can update the links to my Soudcloud page... since all my songs have been deleted from the site I originally used. I will do this gradually so as not to overwhelm or be disrespectful of other posters. smile
Hard to believe this was over 6 years ago! crazy


(2/8/11)
Here's my latest creation. I've been working on this for the last couple of weeks.

I got a new Fender Telecaster Custom Deluxe from the Fender Custom Shop almost three weeks ago (nicest guitar I've ever owned) and I can't seem to put the dang thing away and not play it.

Anyway, I was practicing with a backing track on my Fender G-Dec amplifier and came up with this lick that just sounded so cool with my new Tele. So I decided to see if I could come up with a whole song based on this backing track & lick. So I brought the midi file (drums, bass & strings) into RB and changed them to audio files and adjusted to the right length, then added some other RealDrum tracks and brought them all into Reaper, then added my guitar parts & vocals. So the only RT's are the drum parts. I also did something different in that I used my JamVox for the guitar parts (which I usually do) but this time instead of recording the guitars dry and adding FX in Reaper, I used the FX from the guitar settings in JamVox 'cause I really liked the way they sounded. Most of the guitar parts are my new Tele but my Strat does have a track as well.
(Had to... he was gettin' jealous)

The song is meant to make you grin. It is a little long so we'll call it the dance mix.

All comments welcome.

Rub It


Girl I wanna’ take you on a ride with me
There’s somethin’ there I hope your gonna’ wanna’ see
Leavin’ all your worries and your troubles behind
Come on girl we got a party to find

It’s time to rub it… (Intro Lick)

I don’t think you know it but your just my kind
Girl we gotta’ find a way to be entwined
You and me you know we fit just like a glove
There’s somethin’ here I think you better get hold of

It’s time to rub it… (Rythm) (8 bar intro lick)

Now girl you shouldn’t sit there just a wonderin’ why
You didn’t take a chance you didn’t even try
You said you wanna’ party for the rest of the night
So why you wanna’ hit me with a big red light

It’s time to rub it… (Rythm) (8 bar intro lick) (freeform solo)

I’m gonna’ give you one more chance to see it my way
I promise I don’t bite girl I just wanna’ play
Don’t tell me one more time just to leave you alone
Give a guy a break throw a dog a bone

It’s time to rub it… (Rythm) (8 bar intro lick) (16 bar outro)

Greg,

I can't believe it was 6 years ago that you posted this either!

The sound that you've created here is awesome. Your production really sizzles! There's so much attention to detail... the mix, the harmony, the arrangement, your vocals, your guitar work... just wow!!

This is definitely one that lights up the listener! The 5½ minutes zipped by in a flash.

It's great to see you around in the forum again.

All the best,
Noel

I don't remember it but I'm old smile And it might have been before we came on board.

Regardless, it's a LOT of fun and extremely well performed and produced.

Like Noel said "there is so much attention to detail."

Radio ready it is...were they playing good stuff nowadays.

Enjoyed it!

Greg,

We've only been here for about three years or so, thus we missed the original post. But this baby rocks! And ... who says you can't write a darned good song with just one chord? You shot that theory all to hell!

I'm (Alan) a lead guitarist - have been for over 50 years - so I kind of hone in on that. Two things caught my attention:

1. Your playing is exceptionally clean - no fumbled notes, no string buzz, everything little detail is consistent.

2. Your creative approach - knowing when and how to re-emphasize the "catch phrases", how to make the guitar standout be highlited without cranking the volume to 12 on a scale of 1 - 10, and the harmonic layering. The guitar parts were understated but took a spotlight right next to the excellent vocal.

Every little detail was measured and put exactly when, where and how it should have been. Tip of the hat for a great song, performance and production. Best to you,

ALan & Di
