Kevensor said 4345 days ago (June 3rd, 2005)
He rides into town...
on a Black horse. Dusty, dirty, and just plum mean. He's looking for the gang who shot his best friend and burned his house to the ground. They say there are none as free as those who have nothing left to lose. His mind is focused on one thing and one thing only. Find them and make them pay. He's not just looking to shoot them, he wants them to suffer the way he's suffered these past three years. Their pain and blood are the only things that will quench his thirst for vengeance...

That is the vision I had while I listened. Well done!
I really liked this a lot. Thanks for the heads up.

One Bad Dude, is one "bad" song... as we used to use the word bad. This is a great song as is and as we were chatting last night, offers so many ideas for lyrics with a story line. Thumbs up Mr. tiler!

Ya, I think the slide adds to it, especially when I add suspense. I like how you
use that stillness yourself when you play the guitar.

Rattlesnake rustlin'!
So Bill... is there any genre you're NOT good at?

This is great... I *loved* the rattle-fret-snake hissing, this
song has that dirty raw tumbleweed taste, but with
TheTiler signature blended in smoothly. Loved the
melody, great guitar playing... the only critique I have is
one string sounded a little strong and boomy (midrange?)
in the recording, but otherwise, well-recorded. 8-[7/8]-8
-8

Yet another TilerTune I just gotta run down(load), hog-tie
and drop into my holster (don't have an iPod yet.) :-)
Yeeha! Makes me want to saddle up and do some
midnight rustlin.

Picturesque and polished, with pregnant pauses and
pliant pacing. Among the most painterly pastorales you've
posted. Plaudits for a proficient and pure performance.

The piece is purdy, principally proven to be a purveyor of the pea

Peerless pastiche
You're right, Pistol Packin' SyncoPatient -- "Pastorale" has too pleasant a
connotation. This depicts gritty, gunslinging meanness at high noon on the
main street of Deadwood. It is a "pastiche", however: the imitation of the
style of a previous work of art. Unlike a parody, a pastiche is not making fun
of the original. Pastiche can also mean a medley of different materials, forms,
motifs, etc. Bill Furner has proven himself to be capable of many styles of
music. He is Peerless Pastiche as well as a creative wellspring in his own right.

tasteful and imaginative as usual
Your guitar playing always pleases the ear, and the
recording quality on this is even better than I remember
from past submissions.

I particularly like the special effects you include on this
piece. The scuttling sound and the harmonics are great!

Pie said 4343 days ago (June 5th, 2005)
it's not my place...
...to comment on the song. I liked it. But then it's what you do, isn't it? But I will comment about the production.

It's a simple piece tech-wise but I think you need to adjust the EQ slightly - if indeed you have any on here at all. Basically you need to scoop out some bottom end to get rid of that bass (& sub-bass) resonance. Try scooping out from 450hz (-5db as a starting point?) and cut off at 100hz.

This should help a lot. Otherwise great.

Be cool,

Pie

Ed Hannifin said 4343 days ago (June 5th, 2005)
Almost missed this one...
...and I'm glad I didn't...

It has a lot of the best things I enjoy in the playing of
Steve Stills and Peter Green and Lindsay Buckingham...

Reminds me a bit of "The Chain", a bit of Stills' "Bluesman"
from Manassas...and I mean both of those references in a
complimentary way...

Nice tune, nicely played, with a nice sense of drama...just
enough tension...yet a lightness in there, too...

As a reference point, on the system hooked up to my
computer this doesn't need a bass EQ rolloff...it's very full
and warm, very much sounding like a good, solid spruce
guitar with a drop-D tuning...it doesn't (on my set-up)
have that thunk-thunk-thunk that a bass heavy Travis
pick thing can get...it's got enough but not too much, if
you know what I mean...

It's funny, I just looked up at the top of the page, and this
isn't what I would normally think of as "New Age
Acoustic". It's some other cool thing...

Nice job all around...
thetiler said 4343 days ago (June 5th, 2005)
Almost missed this one...
Thanks EJh

Ya, I changed it right after I read you statment about what category. I just put it
in Folk.

As for as eq. I try to really work on this. But it is a challenge because of
fingerpicking needs to be closer in a way than hard notes with the bass.
Especially light guaged strings. The lighter the 1,2strings the more the mic
needs to be closer. But that can conflict with loud attacks on the strings,
especially the bass notes.

Really do appreciate it. As for as talent, a lot of it is just tons of repetition. I feel
like i'm not a person that has a photographic memory or was the brilliant kid in
school, so I had to make up for it I guess by just constant, year in and year out
repetition of music I like to play on the guitar.
