Latest song from Chris and Dave:

The Traveller

Realtracks used:

Acoustic Guitar: 692
Bass: 683

EZDrummer2: Drums and Percussion

I added three electric guitar tracks; two tele tracks and a strat for the intro lead and solo.

Mixed and mastered using reaper with plugins from Waves, iZotope, LMC, and S-Gear


THE TRAVELLER (2018, Christiane Spruit)
V1
a world outside my window
a world behind my eyes
I drive the unknown highway
drawn in by the lights
CHORUS
all right
check in within 1oo Miles
tonight
leaving no track and ride
into the presence of my mind
tonight
V2
you said I am always leaving
when it is getting rough
you know that I am a traveller
no I can't get enough
CHORUS
(check in within 200 miles)
V3
I never meant to hurt you
Never ment to to you harm
but I am just a visitor
there is no home in my heart
CHORUS
(check in within 300 miles)

Dave,
The guitar layers sound great here to me and there`s some interesting driving percussion (EZ drummer certainly has some different options to RealDrums).
The mystery in Chris`s lyrics are a good fit and she`s such a convincing vocalist.
Love your lead guitar tone.
Very enjoyable travels!

Robert

Great driving sound throughout.

I really liked the haunting guitar sound that sits so well with the song genre.

This song really gave me a sense of wanderlust. I also really, really liked the drums in this particular tune. It gives it an almost dreamy feel to the opening of the song, and it really enhances the overall feel of the song.

Awesome job!

Dave and Chris, You have created a top shelf song and production here. Very well sung and some of the best guitar playing ever posted on this site. A big round of applause from way down here. Absolutely loved it and worth many listens, Tom

Dave and Chris,

Such a great tune! Chris' voice and your licks work so great together on this. The guitar playing is first class all the way and those drums - holy smoke - they sell this one.

What a great listen! I don't get a chance to listen or post very often these days so, I'm delighted I got to hear this one. So sweet in every way!

Alan

Wow - you guys really outdid yourselves here! As it has already been mentioned - the guitar work on this tune is seriously next level. Not to mention, that vocal performance is stunning. It has so much character and emotion. You really captured a mood here.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Nice tune. Has a great groove with a nice bluesy sound. Some of the instrumental parts sound a lot like Santana to me. Nice job on this.

Niiiice!! Great rock blues vibe. "Here, here" to the comments above about the production, guitar work and vocals. I hope some day to be able to produce something like this.

Yes, EZDrummer certainly opens up some new doors, no question about that.

Thanks for the listen and comment, Robert!

Dang man, we need a step ladder to just try and reach that bar you keep moving up.

It didn't take long for forum members to drop all the well deserved superlatives.

Tweak away....but we assuredly do not have any nits.

This is one of those where after the last note we just look at each other and go WOW!

The percussion, guitar and vocal performance are amongst the very best we've heard here.

Just love the way your guitar and the vocals sit in the mix. Right in the sweet spot.

Great!

Thanks, Ember! And thanks for mentioning the drums, took me a long time to get them the way I wanted.
