Just about as good as it gets IMHO.


Hey Tom,

You smoking, man! Dave summed this up better than I ever could have. Love the guitar accents behind the vocals on the stops - great idea!. What a great sound on your axe and that harmonica is so gritty good. Excellent!

How can a song this hot be so cool?

Alan

tommyad,

The opening is terrific, just pulls you right in from the start . . . and it just cranks from there on. Really good! And like the hook a lot—real nice line. Just some classic, killer blues. You nailed this one!

My humble regards,

Deej

Thanks for coming by. I appreciate the listen and the fine review,Tom

All thumbs up (sorry I only got two of them).

All the best,

Tom,

Wonderful slow shuffle blues!
I entirely agree with floyd.
Super guitar work on this! ALL the guitars work together. The Drums sound great. The organ has nice bite to it. The harmonica is a real standout, too - fit in nicely.
Good vocals, sitting "just right".
This is genuine blues.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Every aspect of this just oozes the blues. Your excellent guitar and vocal performances have just the right amount of grit to make this sound about as authentic as it gets. And the lyric? It could've been written by any of the great blues masters. Spot on with the theme and vocal delivery.

Then there's the cool arrangement, the signature Tommyad great mix and backing tracks...the harp and organ guys sound like they've been playing with the guitar man for years.

Outa sight!!!

J&B

A big thanks for the wonderful review, Tom

User Tip: How to add drum fills without changing any other tracks

MarioD has shared some great advice when it comes to adding drum fills without changing any other tracks in your song:

There have been a number of questions asking how to add drum fills without changing any other tracks in a song. This is especially important if one is holding a chord for a few measures and wants to add a drum fill prior to the next chord. The following is how to accomplish that:

1-get the instruments/tracks to play like you want but don't worry about the drums for now.
2-generate the song.
3-freeze all tracks
4-unfreeze the drum track
5-add your fills where you want them
6-generated the song again - note this will only generate the drum track and not the frozen tracks
7- when you get the drums like you want them freeze the track
