Intended to create a late 60's sounding tune, then I got a bit carried away.

This is not what I expected, it is cool.
Great lead guitar, and vocal harmonies. Perhaps you could post the lyrics. like the 70's band "ACE."

Thanks Steve -- I really appreciate your feedback!

Pretty simple lyrics...basically a variation of...
I'm not missing her, I'm not missing her at all, don't want to hear about it, don't want to talk about it, don't want to think about it. Someday, someone, somehow, somewhere, someway -- I don't miss her, don't want to hear about it, don't want to think about it.

ooo
Agree with feter regarding your juicy thick guitar tone! Nice.
The mix of keys and grungy guitar rhythm is great.
Just noticed the bass line was putting me into a trance too. I didnt pick up on that at first but it's very hypnotic buried deep in there.
cool vibe

Thanks, Ted. Glad you liked it. I started out to try and replicate a version of Gloria I heard a group do in high school -- that was a really long time ago. Didn't get very far with that effort, but it did inspired the base line I used in this tune and riff at the two breaks.

How long has this been going on?
I mean, the song by Ace. Your intro reminds me of it. (Ah, I see I'm not the only one.) But then you go in a different direction. Very tasty guitar work! And the vocals are cool too.

Say, did you know we live in the same town?

Austin
Victor -- Actually, I intended it to be more like a Shadows of Night thing, and it took a different direction as I assembled the layers.

I thought you were a Brit, didn't realize you live in Austin.

Going for the sixties, but I would say you nailed a Steely Dan type sound here. Very nice guitar work in this one. Love the sweep stuff. Guitar tone is warm and thick. Sounds good!

Hmm
You know, I wasn't even thinking about Steely Dan, but now that you mention it -- it does sound a bit like a steely Dan tune.

all over
Yes, very Steeley. But cool with a lot of mixed-up influences that I can't put my finger on. jazzy cool, but crunchy and smooth, like I said a big contradiction. Nice!

a bit carried away!
The song is cool and the lead is like a like a fastball after a day of knuckleballs but,in a good way.Kudos!

Chorus needs a verse
You do a great job with your layered harmony vocals. Very tight, well sung, balanced mix. However, the song is, in my ears, one long chorus with no verse, and then a repeating coda based on the chorus, and then more chorus. And no story. Would you consider creating a verse, in which the accompaniment thins and a solo lead vocal tells a story, and then ramps up into the chorus based on your very nice harmonies? Then you could have a more balanced, complete song. Well done chorus and coda, tho.

Chorus and Coda
I vaguely recall something about codas from my college music appreciation course, but otherwise I'm not that well trained. If I understand correctly, and which I agree with, the song could use a little break from its repetitive theme. Actually, I was so excited how this came together so quickly -- I just had to post it. Thanks for the idea, and I'll give it a go before I cd-ify it.
