Description
In the process of making new songs for my band KONTRABEAT to play, this one came along during this weekend. This is just me playing however, and it's a quite trad blues arrangement with a touch of funk. I got a bit eager to finish this one and took a shot at also putting on the keys myself...

I also got a new overdrive stompbox that I ordered directly from Alfonso Hermida (hermidaaudio.com). Been wanting one of those babies for a while... I kind of fell in love immediately:)

Lyrics
LET ME IN
Thor Oliversen©2009

Oh, let me in
Let me in on what you know
Oh, let me in
Let me in on what you know
Don’t keep me standing in the shadows
Let me in on what you know

Oh, let me stay
Let me stay with the in crowd
Oh, let me stay
Let me stay with the in crowd
Let me mingle with the coolest
They’ll make me cool, for a while

When I’m in - I’m looking out
And when I’m out - I feel the cold
Can’t remember where my goal is
So I follow what looks good
So let me in
Let me in on what you know
Don’t keep me standing in the shadows
Let me in on what you know

- I got lost
- I found out
- I’m tossed
I fell but I got up
Let me in
Let me in on what you know
I can’t remember where I’m heading
Oh, let me in on what you know

intense
such drive and energy through out this tune. I can hear why you really dived deep into this. It has that sense of immediacy.

Thor, you really held a tight control of everything here as well. The solo guitar just flies to the clouds.

excellent job on the bass and keys as well. way too cool of a tune!

I continue...
...to admire and appreciate your feel on rhythm guitar, Thor... No offense to the lead playing, but your rhythm playing is interesting and infectious and I really get into it... Great feel on this... Neat keys.... A good solid bass, too....
thoddi said 3007 days ago (July 1st, 2009)
Hi Ed
I appreciate that you notice my focus on rhythm. I usually start making songs by finding a groove that I find attractive and move on from there. I had fun playing the bass guitar on this as well - thanks for mentioning it:)

the thoddi sound
is constantly evolving :-) always in cool new spaces. Everything just slots in the groove with great synergy. The individual tones on all the instruments compliment each other nicely. The swoosh sound on the rotary speaker (organ) is simply awesome. Is that a soft sound or a sound module? It sounds like the real deal!

The swoosh is really the sound of a backwards voice and some other samples that I've filtered with all kinds of fx's. But they kind of blended in with the organ sound — so I thought it was cool:)

If you like the sounds I'm thrilled... you sure know your way around those keys. I hope we can do a collab together soon. I'm really enjoying the process of working on songs with you.

I might have another one in the same genre in not to long... If you don't mind, I might knock on your door...:)

Makes the jam bone tingle
Thanks for this chunk of groove. The passes here are effective, fine humbucking tone. I definitely appreciate the lack for the "MJ guitar god reverb". Those snakey lines are ripe for jamming, the feel here makes me want to play...Great keys too, my hat is off!

Nice Workout
Nice rocking feel to this funky blues piece, Thor. Good mix of instruments and different feels that gives this tune some new twists in an old format. Cool breathy vocal fits very well in here. ;)

divine
love the way there's just a smidgeon of intro before the groove sets up.
who knew you were a closet keyboardist?
come out, come out into the light!
the stabbing guitar embellishments throughout are so tasty, so good.
1:27 to 1:44 totally cooks!
your solo near the end rocks - you sure know your way around a guitar, thor.
wonderful singing - you are truly a one man band - and a very good one.
enjoyed this one, thor.

I love your voice
as much as I love your formidable guitar work... there is something so honest and urgent about your voice... I always think of you as a player first... but that vocal is sold so well... I believe you

you remind me of hendrix... he hated his voice... but it's a great rock voice, and so compelling,

Scott
Thanks for the kind words on my vocal... I'm not quite confident with singing, and especially in live situations. I think I get to involved in playing and let the vocal part get second priority. In a studio I'm more relaxed, and can of course correct less good parts.

So if you're available, I'm looking for someone to do the lead vocals in my band;)

Impressive
Good groove, good playing. Maybe the bass is a bit very impressive. The track seems to be high on low frequencies. Is that two basses around the 1:30 mark, or just some delay? Nifty.

The shining, solo mind
While full-band recordings may be more definitive, I always like to hear what comes out of the solo mind, and therefore gravitate to tunes like this vs. full non-demo-ish studio postings. I'm an unabashed fan of what you do and how you do it... you always bear repeated listens.

LOVE the instrumental break after the second verse. I'm sort of a Duane-Dicky freak, as Timothy (commenting above me) noted in his "Allmans" reference. But there's also more of a classic "acid blues" (my term) feel here with that funk happening. Congrats on the new O.D> stomper, Thor.
