A Day, and Night and Daze, i just think there better songs, more appealing and catchy,
Lost on Earth a close 3rd...........
Fender Telecaster 1962 Reissue MIJ
1968 Fender Twin Reverb
Stevo--I downloaded them all and I'll shoot you a PM.
I liked Fantasy is free and Lost on earth. Suprisingly missing on
your tunes was that BIG Solo I know your capable of doing??
You did Some Nice textured solo's But... Well don't go by
me. I guess I was listining as a guitarist and Not a A&R Man
GOOD STUFF! Good Luck!
KMC thanks a lot for taking the time. I trust your opinion over some A&R person any day
I just did an instrumental demo with lots of solos. I was hoping for more of a songwriter feel on this project though. My new stuff is going to have a blues/surf feel. I am looking forward to getting on it when night-school ends for the summer
Nights and Dayz is just a perfect power pop track. The tones are to die for, and it jumps and grabs you right off the bat. I also like Lost On Earth a bunch. Sweeter and compliments Dayz nicely.
Tonally this stuff reminds me of John Lennon. Has a nice natural, slighty dark tonality.
Very cool tracks, on some I feel that the distorted guitar is just a bit high in the mix, I would prefer a bit more out of the drums to really drive the music, while rolling the Marshall just a bit back to set your vocals up a bit more. I love the tone, but it just covers space than it needs to IMO.
FACEBOOK FUN RIGHT HERE!
Kev, thanks a bunch. I will work on the mix. I tend to agree that it could be more articulate and I appreciate your critique. I heard some of your tunes with your female vocalist and you did an excellent job with your recordings.
Interesting that you mention John Lennon because I have always liked his music. He is a life-long influence that I don't notice in my own stuff, because his style is so embedded in my brain as a standard
Wattage and Lee thanks for the input.
I think you make a good point here. I should probably "un-clutter" it a bit also. Thanks again LeeOriginally Posted by Lee
Hey some of this stuff reminds me of some old Dutch rockband called, Golden Earring. Ever heard of them?
From the listed tunes I liked 'Nights and Daze' and 'Statues Stare' the most but I really think you should do a rendition of 'Flow' to go on the demo, that kickass solo should be up there.
Btw. Why only 2 songs on a demo?
Oh yeah, beyond "Radar Love" and "Twilight Zone" they did a lot more cool stuff. I recently worked with a producer who was in the studio with them when they recorded Radar Love.Originally Posted by Nightburst
Thanks for your input. I specifically needed 2 songs only, for submission to a possible (low low budget) opportunity.
I sent 'Nights and Daze' and 'A Day' and I got a request for more tunes. I need to do a little remixing but I think the statues song will be one of the next group.
I'm goin' with Statues Stare and To Be - cool guitar part on To Be............. Good Luck
Sorry Steve, I seem to be a little late on this thread

To Be / Lost on the Earth (tie)
Dude, you've got to put Kahuna Loco on that demo! Seriously! =)
Thanks for your opinions guys. I take them seriously
UCSD Boy I specifically needed 2 pop tunes for this demo. Kahuna Loco is on my instrumental CD and I am definitely pushing it for other projects. It is on a couple of (low budget) Santa Barbara surf videos and possibly something else pretty soon.
Thanks for you input
sweet dude - you need to tell us where we can shop for this stuff! =)Originally Posted by Stevo
