Oh yeah!
Chris, if they ever compile a "Best of Macjams" CD, it would not be complete without at least one of your tracks! Loved this! Michael

Cool Cat
I have a vision in my head of 3 cats {actual cats} having a jam session with you {a dragon} drinking rum on a Saturday evening. The guitar playing is superb! Great stuff!

This has great feeling and vibe. Slide is spot on. Love the space in this. Sounds like 50's Chicago blues. Lyrics work fine.

Thanks John
I do not know why but I am just hooked on this slide thing after PBMan showed me a couple of open tunings...I used to resist alternate tunings but now I cannot stop...Thanks for stopping in .

Loving this too
That slide guitar sounds just great Chris and I love the rolling drum beat in between. Your right when you say this has more structure than your last song; it does; and again, tour playing is just fine, regards M

I am
amazed at the sounds that can be coaxed out of the guitar just by changing the tuning and applying a little metal tube to them(strings).

Thanks Mo

I took a little
step back myself when listening to the playback,I think it is the change in tuning has brought about a change in approach and attitude to the 6 String box !

Yeah you get out there and wrestle
that dad burned alley gaytorr....make it snappy.


That line you quoted was an adlib cos something distracted me and I forgot the proper verse...I thank Biscuit ( The cat) for that as she was mowing for her tea. I think it worked out quite a different line !

Cheers Jarvoid.

Yes one of
the verses gets slightly Vocal out of synch with the music I think
it is the second verse .I am not really a singist and i nearly dispensed with the lyric track altogether,but I may tinker with it ....or redo.Cheers and thanks for the comment

lasties
Hey Chris, apologies for not stopping by for ages. Hit the download about 20 seconds into this. Definatly a step up for you, (not that I haven't enjoyed a lot of the others!)There's a little slide in here that reminded me of the Beatles "For you Blue"...."Go Chris go"!! great stuff mate and thank good ness for a cats distraction. Technically a couple of pops and squeaks you might want to try and correct but the feel is great. cheers mark

Hm
It's a shame you didn't spend a couple more minutes on the mix. The slide stuff is really cool, but the background is too far in the background. And then you have a vocal that is way to upfront, almost overhyped. Put some energy in that background and push the vocals back a bit and you have a smashing track.

Jarvoid said 3187 days ago (October 3rd, 2010)
Yup,when you are
right you are right...I got a tad carried away with the overall "betterness" of the guit playing and slammed it on here without a lot of thought going into the mixing...I will have a go at that,cheers Vic,always good advice.Jarvo

epiphany
Don't you love epiphanys .. epiphanies .. epiffaknees .. whatever .. those intuitive moments that suddenly sweep you away in an unexpected direction? This music oozes with the pure fun you are having with the slide and open tuning.

It sounds dangerous. I may just have to give it a try someday : )

wow
Yeh - talk about a steamroller blues. The intro was so imposing and then the vocals come in and have such an almost 3D presence. Quite breathtaking.
