  1. Thanks Bill. Appreciate the feedback. I’ll be working on the drums a lot and try to get that 70,s mix sound — the Oheads tip is a good one - I’ll try that for sure.
  2. I started working on the final version now that this is finished. The purpose of doing two complete versions is that the Draft version is burdened by me learning the parts and figuring out how I'm going to record the song so there are lots of production based decisions and cumbersome process stuff that gets in the way of the performances and slows everything down. I'm in the process of making my final notes on this one so I can start capturing the final performances but I thought you guys might like to hear what the Draft version ended up sounding like. It's still a little rough and loose - the final version will be much tighter I hope. You've heard some of this it bits and bites before from me. I've got a list of "needs improvement" for the final version here: http://www.thestairwayproject.com/ten-years-gone-the-scratch-tracks/ If anything jumps out at you as needing attention - particularly with respect to accuracy and arrangement please feel free to let me know. Many thanks.
  3. Dude - Hang in there. Any chance of making music in the new town? Places to play or people to play with?
  4. That was cool -- Black Coffee -- gotta like that! I'm gonna keep my eyes and ears on them. I've been listening to Bat's Brew - also very 70's inspired -- think Queen meets ABB, with a modern rock flair... I did an album review for them here http://www.dogsoverlava.com/bats-brew-trouble-album-review/ This is what I said about the above song:
  5. Cool Ben -- How well does the Smiths band do "How Soon is Now"? I'm super impressed always at these tribute projects you get involved in. What's the next one after radio-head? How do the stylings of each new tribute work their way into you playing? Do you find it changes a lot as you go on?

    It was pretty clean but something just seemed so wrong about it.... right at the front door as I walked in --- I've learned to not fall for Sirens.... or toss my money at the first stripper who smiles at me.

    That's what I found was so funny -- like inches away

    No -- I could never buy a slammer.... it had what looked like an ibanez trem.... I felt dirty touching it. That's $150 Canadian for you USA guys

    There's NO reason ever to accept a lip sync'd performance at the Grammys or AMA's or any music awards show or SNL ever again -- this was live and that band was playing live --- and they did it in a scripted time window with a cast of over 100 ------ new standard!

    Thanks was bloody awesome!!!!!!
  11. excellent news on the physical healing --- your heart will heal too M., of that I'm sure. Just remember the spirit in which you loved that dog and take comfort in knowing you remained true to that spirit right till and including the end.
  12. That was my first instinct Ting -- I wrote this as a road song, and every time I started adding leads (when I first recorded this last year), it took away from that bitter sweet feeling you get with that lonely open road in front of you and put too much attention on the leads -- so I dropped them but then lost my objectivity. The issue wasn't the idea of leads or fills - most likely my orientation towards playing them -- so I'm going to try to get re-immersed in the original vibe of this track and see what materializes with everyone's input in mind.
