Okee Dokee Smokey

Description
got a smokey amp for christmas. it's one of those tiny deals that fits into an old cigarette package. pretty cool and unique sound - great for making a track stand out. however, i thought i'd try an entire song where ALL the guitar tones (not bass, drums, etc, of course) go thru the smoke amp. and that's how okee dokee smokey was born. the crazy thing about this 1 watt wonder is it has a speaker out jack - which can power my marshall 4x12 cab... and loud at that! so the distortion guitars you hear are the smokey going thru my marshall cab.

i am going to put some vocals to this tune later. in the mean time, download and add your own vocals if you like. send 'em to me and if i really like them, i'll throw them in the mix all nice-like.

my ol amp !
That was a hand made amp that done and designed by
my friend who did the keys at my last blues song ..
his idea is when ever you give gain you ll have distortion
and it did ...it was giving me clean distortion ...but
then I asked him to made it for headset so I can wail
in silence ..and he did that job perfectly ...I left
this amp with everything at my parents house at hellhole !

dont miss it though !

Man....
Your songs pretty much rule. I'm sorry for not discovering them before. You have a good sense of dynamics in the couple songs I've heard. The amp sounds pretty good to me. good vibe

vibe
thanks for the kind words. yeah the amp certainly has some character. zero low end when going through its own speaker, and kinda mushy when going full-on distortion. but a lot of fun.

the guitar tones
remind me of the first amp I ever had - a cheap orange and black crate 'practice' amp. I used to crank the midrange and gain and rock out. cool song, man. Really like the handclaps, the bridge and that killer stunted outro.

claps
nothing more lonely than clapping by yourself 4 times through a chorus. lol!

yeah, this amp has no knobs (except the one playing the guitar :) - you just adjust the gain from the volume of your guitar. "just set it and forget it!"

I may have a go at it. This is very cool Scott. I really hope I can work up the nerve to do something with it.
Peace

Now this is cool!
Great concept... and a really cool sound. I've thought about getting one of these little amps... but there's no way it would sound like this at my hands. The clean and distorted sounds are really pretty good.

The groove itself is very interesting too... rocks hard. Real good stuff!

little guitars/amps
thanks for checking it out! i think it could sound just as good in your hands - or anyone else's. it's a cinch to mic... i just dangled it from the patch cable in front a mic on a stand. hehe.

Wish I had time

to try vocals on this. Really nice groove.

Great range of textures and I loved the distorted sections. Unexpected but very well done.

Cheers

Wondermous
There's rooms for tons of melody. Had I the time I would totally warble on this tune for you. But I'm sure you and tons of other qualified folks will before I even scrape up the time.

Clapping through chorus. I've always wondered why my own clapping has always sounded so dense. I'll have to try that.

Kinda' gave me...
...a Smashing Pumpkins vibe. This is going to be incredible when the vocals are added. Don't stop here. This is so pro stuff.

hey
i have a smokey too (although mine is a very un-rock pack of marlboro lights). you are right about the sound through a cabinet. anyways, the song itself is very cool, very post rock. add a bit of fuzz bass and you could sell this to mogwai when they decide they need a hit. it's very pop to me, but in the good way. now i need to go get my smokey and try sinfging through it. great track.

Smoke em if you got em
This is great. I recently looked at beer can amps online. Love all the different sounds you managed to get out of it. Pretty amazing really - and a cool song too. Nice bass and drums.

please accept
my apology! I could have sworn i commented already but obviously i hadn't:) What a bloody amazing beat! You're just so good at so many different instruments.. I've never come across a 'smokey amp' but i have to say it might just be the coolest thing on earth (It's tiny!). I see you're planning on putting some vox on this, great, i can't wait to hear the finished version. Like always, this is another great tune i'll be listening to on the walk home. Thanks for that:)

Unbelievable Production
Great job here. The drum beat is unreal and the melody, what can I say? Can't wait to hear vocals put to this one. Very catchy. The end chords combined with your guitar tone ring Foo Fighters through and through...that's a compliment. Thanks and can't wait to hear more.

little amp
BIG noise
Love it.
The off kilter stuff at the end is brilliant.
Like the way it opens up and builds into a killer track.
Good stuff

Like the bass
Although the focus is on the guitar here, I really like the bass run - reminds me of Joy Division and New Order. Cool track.
