More of a blues rock feel than a traditional blues.

My typical set up is an iMac. I play a modified Fender Strat and Fender Precision Bass. To help modify the sound I run the Strat through a Cry Baby Wah Wah, Ibenez TS9DX Tube Screamer, Johnson J-Station Amp Modeler and Blue Tube Stereo Preamp. The bass is also modified by the J-Staion. The drums are Drums On Demand.

Nice chord work
I like the power (essence) you apply to your music...I
would like to hear lyrics as well.. It will happen one day.
You're an excellant musician/artist.

you really Robin Trower, I'm beginning to wonder. Once
again you have posted a most awesome song.

You have a fantastic sound
but I'd like to see the song a little more structured and a
little less repetitive. Added it to my favorites anyway, just
because I love the way you play.

That's some great guitar!
Everytime I hear someone playing like that it makes me
wish I could play guitar better.

You've got a really nice sound here. I did find it a *little*
repetitive near the end, but that may be because I don't
listen to a lot of instrumental stuff or long solos.

Really enjoyed it though - I'm off to do some more scales!

Thanks to all
I think my biggest knock is the repetition. I'm not creative enough to
carry an entire song with guitar alone and I don't sing very well so vocals
are a problem. If I could combine vocals with your typical shorter guitar
solos the repetition might not be as noticeable. Mmm, trying to decieve
the public... sounds like a plan.

dont deceive
my gutiar playing sucks, so do my vocals...but no one else
seems to notice.
heart. put all your heart into this stuff, my brother.
don't try to sound like anyone but who you sound like.

some times i sound like tom waits. some times leonard
cohen. some times elvis. i used to get all paranoid
someone would think i was trying to knock them off.
then i realized.....screw everyone else.

this is nice guitar work.
keep an eye open for the blues collabs i do frequently.
jump on board with one of those. you'll find it good

looking forward to more of your work.

Don't get me wrong
the decieve comment was just a joke. To fool the ear with simple playing
and mix it up a bit. When I play naturally I can't help sounding like Robin
Trower, I don't try to, it's just how I sound. I love his tone, phrasing, etc.
and growing up listening your favorites rubs off on you. When I try to
play like soneone else I just sound like crap, so I decided to play the only
way I know how. I have to get over to you're
material soon, you may sound like others at times, but you still seem to
make it your own.

excellent guitar
Your guitar playing really rocks!

This song has some very good licks in it. Would there be a
way to create more variety in the chords and still stay true
to the blues style? (just wondering...). I kept hoping for
things to shift and change more as the song progressed.
What you did was great though.

This Song Helped Me Realize
I really can't comment on blues songs. I've discovered that
this is one, maybe the only, category that drives me up a
wall. Well, this, and maybe political songs. Maybe it's
because I grew up listening to my dad solo in his bedroom
for HOURS and HOURS as a kid... day in and day out.
Appreciate the blues, I do... but heard enough of them to
last me a lifetime, I have. Haha!

Hey, this is pretty good stuff though. The quality isn't
quite right on, but some of the sounds remind me a teeny
bit of ZZTop. I"d like to see you collab with one of the
other blues-dudes at MacJams. Er... maybe all of you
could collab on one gigantic final blues song that spells
the end of blues as a genre.

LOL. Good stuff, but think about cleaning up the
production for next time. It's a little off.

Uh, Thanks I think.
Anything more specific about the production, besides the muddy mess I
always seem to create? Some of those comments got me so depressed I
need to go write another blues song.

good foundation
personally i can't sing, but I make a half assed attempt at it. I think you should try to collaborate with a singer online because you definitely have the skills to pay the bills!
