So, this song started out maybe a good year or more back.... David Snyder and I attempted to put together a party in the woods kind of song. It didn't really get going as I was trying to copy a style from a certain band that ...well, .... it didn't work and the song collected dust. Recently, I was digging through the older folders and came across it and decided to finish it and not worry so much about the style but simply make this a rocker of the finest degree. I kept the concept, and many of the words. A few changes here and there.

If you are offended by walls of amplifiers and overdriven smoking tube Mesa Boogies powered by humbuckers....oh well....welcome to the wonderfully guitar driven world I live in.

The band: essentially 6 tracks and could have been 5.

Bass: 1522
Drums: Blues rock with a serious 4 on the floor.
Guitars: Guitarhacker aka Herb
Vox: ditto


This is a raw, bare bones, rock and roll band. only 2 guitars and yep.... no overdubs, no studio magic, no pitch corrected vox either. The only thing I did was go for a live concert kind of feel. It's not how I would mix it for my normal work. But it was fun.

Feel free to share your thoughts.

Born In The Country


Best served hot and loud. JMHO.... sounds really good in cans.


a few more hours till the daylight's gone
we're gonna rock this town from dusk to dawn
we'll all meet down at the watering hole
find some girls and we're ready to roll
skin tight, truck lights
might have to light a fire tonight.

Get it up, get tight Make out yeah that's alright
a little rough, good enough, pour a little shine in my dixie cup
We live in the woods standup for what's right,
born in the country and we're gonna get tight

solo

we're just good old boys, having our fun
don't call the cops we'll let you know when we're done
Lawd have mercy never seen such a sight
Who's that girl dancing in the moonlight
skin tight, truck lights
We have one hell of a fire tonight.

Get it up, get tight Make out yeah that's alright
a little rough, good enough, pour more shine in my dixie cup
We live in the woods standup for what's right ,
born in the country and we're gonna get tight

If it were Neil Young he'd play that between lines riff on single notes over the top- That'd match this really well.
You hit the Live Crazy Horse vibe well.

Sounds like something Z.Z. Top might have done back in the day.

Good stuff, Herb, love hearing the live guitars in there and your vocal is right on the money.

Enjoyed!

I'd have never pegged it as Crazy Horse but I'm glad you liked it.

IIRC, the style is Texas Butane which is very ZZ'ish in nature. I dropped the guitar tracks from BB because they had harmonics in them like BG tends to drop in the playing.

Thanks for listening

I loved the driving beat too. Those guitars are not nearly as loud as they sound in the tracks. Mesa with a master on almost 2 ..... in the lead mode..... and humbuckers.... nice combo. I opted to go with my mic'd boogie over the POD2 on this one. I really need to do more Boogie and less Pod.... I love the sound of the tubes.

Thanks for listening and commenting.

Nicely done - love the beat behind this one, I have no doubt this would sound amazing live. It has a strong driving force and really packs a bunch, which I liked. Definitely picking up the ZZ Top vibes like others mentioned above.

Thanks for sharing smile

Thanks for your time. That driving beat is interesting. In BB and RB ... there's a techno kick on quarters.... But when its rendered, the techno track refused to be copied out to a wave. So I had to roll my own with a synth in sonar.

Yeah, no doubt, this one rocks.

Thanks

I get the ZZ Top sound as well in the Southern Rock guitar kind of way.... I hear Neil Young more in your vocal phrasing not necessarily in your voice itself. Definitely a good rocker and you ended up with an awesome kick sound. Thanks for describing how you got that.

Keep up the good work Herb!

Sounded great, I enjoyed it. My favorite line was "more shine in my dixie cup." Nice.

Herb, you had me by the first measure. Good old kick @ss ZZ Top loud blasting blues. Perfectly mixed by the way.

What else can I say, LOVED IT!

Man I hear you..... there's just something about a humbucker cranked through a smoking tube output.... I've always been partial to that kind of sound. My guitar of choice these days is a modern tele which happens to have a bridge mounted humbucker. And I think I will be using the Mesa more often from this point forward. Takes a bit more to set it up and mic placement is critical but it's certainly worth the time to get the sound.

Great rocker, there's always room for smoking super sounding guitars, in the spirit of Sharp Dressed Man and some Gimme all your lovin'. Excellent mix and vocals.
