Here's a blues I wrote about the difference between being alone and being lonely.

I'm not sure how the mix works - any advice welcome....

I used the style 'Laid Back Blues'for bass, drums and rhythm guitar. Added vocals and lead guitar - Strat through Amplitube. Mixed in Logic.

Hope everyone is keeping well.

"It don't mean that I don't love you....just don't want to be with anyone else." GREAT line. I'm not sure even you know how multi-faceted that little jewel is.

Love your voice here. The band is solid and unobtrusive. Your clean-toned play is good and just gets better as this thing rolls along. Maybe a tad long, but I never felt bored. Beale Street ready.

Hello Chris,

Superb voice. The arrangement is well done. I love the solo which stands out well without taking over the voice. It's a good song.

It's no secret we love the blues so this is right square in our wheelhouse.

Your vocal and Strat performances are as Gregg Allman would say "hittin' the note."

It's ALL in the pocket. And your voice and playing have that quality that is so important to us. SOUL.

Enjoyed it a lot,

J&B

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Chris,
A showcase for your guitar chops, tone and feel... in a well sung package with that cool lyric line Tangmo highlighted.
Great mix.

Hi Chris,
There's a lot of years of playing the blues wrapped up in this little number. It's a great song.
Your vocal performance is terrific and your guitar is as tasty as ever.
The mix and the "band" sound great - almost live.
Stay well,
Mike

Thanks everyone for the comments. Tunemonger, Oleman, and MajicSpell commented on another of my tracks with some mixing tips and I have re-mixed this track as well to take some of the 'mud' out of the vocals and drums.

Tangmo: 'Maybe a tad long...'

ha ha, yes. I programmed an extra verse in the BB file by mistake and was then too lazy to take it out - easier to play another 12 bars of guitar...
