Description
My first bluesy song on MJ. Not sure about the drums, I keep finding that bit in GB very difficult, but I tried to add some stops etc to make the song more interesting. Maybe this is OK for some vocals?? I don't know. I added a bridge and solo so it is ready for take off..I would be very interested in your opinions about this, thanks for listening!!!!!

Nice tone and style of guitar playing.
Slightly Hendrix influenced but manages to retain it's own style.
I would have maybe not panned the drums so much. It makes them too 'seperate'
A bit of panning, i.e hi-hats to the left, bass drum slightly to the right and snare in the middle is a safe-ish bit but only slight pannings..but that's my only thing that I'd maybe change
cheers

From what I hear
EZ drummer is really good. Amazing how good the quality of drum sounds are. plus you can customize it to your liking. I liked the laid back vibe of this. Nice relaxing guitar stylings.

The drums are decent but for the quality of work you are doing, you may want to check out EZ Drummer: http://www.toontrack.com/products.asp?item=7

I like your guitar lines - I agree with kingbee on the Hendrix influence. You did a good job on the drums, but you may want to check out Drums On Demand. These are audio loops of live sessions that come in sets that you can tailor to your song.

Sweet Blues
What a terrific track you've created. Hec, I'm not good at giving critic or anything. I just close my eyes and let the music take me, and yeah this took me man! Good stuff!

Sweet
guitars reminded me of steve vai's more relaxed and musical numbers. Very nice to listen to. I struggle with drumming in GB and Logic too. Always my least favourite bit.
This is very nice

Like a nice
combination of Hendrix and Zappa. Great feel to this, would love to hear some vocals on it. I must admit to not hearing anything wrong with the drums, sound fine to me and they compliment the groove perfectly to my ear.
Cheers

Real nice guitar....
Egbert, you really play a nice mellow guitar here. Yes, a vocal could definitely lay on top of this. But your guitar playing keeps my interest all by itself. Kudos.

opening song element is a nuance
chosen guitar chords are displayed attacked broken in this hippsey hendrix style -
those drums fills do it -
strat is featured well with sweet sounds !
ultra way-down-sub-E-bass enters, fattening it all *

hey noorderbuur
First time I see you around here (I'm not that present as I used to be). A nice surprise. You sure know how to make a Strat sound as it was meant to be. Sweet laid back feeling overall. But I do hear you're struggling with the drums. I second your opinion on the difficulty of programming drums in GB. That's why I mostly start from an existing loop to make it unrecognizable in the end. Nice to have met you, and I'll keep track of your future posts.

I have a strat too (American deluxe 09)
Love it and love it's tone. What are you using for a processor? I have a Digitech rp350.
This is a really nice laid back piece of blues. Not sure I like the panning though I found it a bit distracting.It ends a bit abruptly too. Just my thoughts is all.
Peace
