I suppose this is more 70s to 80s rock than anything else.
Used Brett with one held bass and one rocking bass and acoustic strum.

Did I get it right?

Did you get it right???

In my humble opinion, I would give a big thumbs up and a YEAH BUDDY!

Sounds like it was ripped right from one of the Traveling Wilbury's cassettes!

Great playing and just the right sound for the era. And in my view for all eras.

There're some sibilant and plosive vocal things that could be dealt with as the voice is so far forward but the rest of the package is good good.

Hey Vic ...

Great to see you over here. Welcome to the site!

I really like this and I agree with the Traveling Wilburys reference. I've enjoyed your music a lot over the past number of years (7 or 8?). Good to hear another one from you. Will be watching for more!

Best to you. Be safe ...

Alan

Vic,
Sounds good to me.I like your vocal and the ringing rocking guitars. The lyrics are straightforward and still have memorable lines,like these:

Irritating
captivating
.. alternating .... pain
You're insane

Very catchy melody.
Welcome to the forum!

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

Vic,
Clever lyrics and phrasing. Good instrumentals and mix. For some strange reason lyrics reminded me of some U2 tunes. Enjoyed it!

P.S. You have some pretty cool songs in your SC library. I liked "Billy". If it has BIAB tracks, please post it here, I am sure it will be appreciated.

Misha.

Thanks rayc.
I thought I'd already replied but it's not showing up here.

I was saying that I do tend to be loose on the sibilants.
When you get older your ears don't pick up the high frequencies very well.

I have adjusted the vocal down a tad now and tried to cut some of the other stuff.
Thanks for your comment.

Yep, definitely a Roy Orbison vibe on this and a good song as well. Nicely done.

Hi Misha.
Thanks for that generous comment.
Not sure why U2 but if you think of it, it would be interesting to know.

As you ask, I will post Billy in a few days from now.

Thanks again
Vic

I think I worked on the mix longer on this one than any other.
Either age is getting to me at last or I'm getting more picky.
