This is 100% midi performed with various keyboards except, of course, the vocals. I am still working on how to make the guitar, bass, and other instruments on my recording have the same dynamics as the real thing using a midi keyboard. Guitar strum up & down, picking strums, etc.

Hello Greg
Interesting figures repeated too many times. Your midi talents are great indeed.
The octaves on the guitar sim kind of sum up my reaction to the whole. The listening you have done appears to have left a huge impression. The idea that borrowing a progression from Whippin Post and fixing it onto a couple of other things is very seductive I guess...
Stay with it... perhaps you are reaching for something?

Borrowing the Progression
Thank you very much for the listen and comments. Appreciate them - they help me grow as a writer and performer.

What I neglected to mention is that my little brother, my self, and a couple others wrote this song around 1968 or 1969 and it was not meant as a borrowed progression from the Allman's although it ended up sounding like it. Here's the link to a rough mix of the original - http://www.macjams.com/song/70371 (posted as artist wearebitterswet) - when you listen to that cut you will get a better idea of what we were reaching for when we wrote it. If you check out the other analog records I posted you will get a better idea of our musical influences at that time.

I am no longer the teenager I was when we wrote the song - I am now in my 60's and posting my one man midi versions of songs I co-wrote in the 60's and 70's as well as new songs that I continue to write and record today.

Again, Thanks for the listen and feedback.

Okay Greg
I listened to the original. The playing is very precise for that period. Sounds like you needed a writer? Great musicianship!
Best of luck with your midi project.

Good stuff. I think the drums could be brought up front a bit. The snare also has kind of a "tinny" sound. The synths and organ sound great. Of course, electric guitar is almost impossible to get right. I have tried a few times, and I never get the right sound. But a noble effort. Nice vocals, with settings that move them to a particular space, kind of off a ways. Great listen.

Good Stuff
Les- Thanks for the listen and critique. I actually mixed this down during a recent 12-day stay in the hospital for heart surgery. I turned 60 and my body is falling apart. I spent all my waking hours mixing this (and editing commercial video for some clients) with ear buds, and they kept me supplied with plenty of "happy drugs" ( I deleted the version where most everything was either backwards and/or ring modulated). Actually the drums are just a "place holder" - it is the same kick and snare pattern throughout. I will replace the drums later, and thanks for the listen and reminder.

Good midi guitar
Vic- I agree. But I will keep trying! Although I am over 60 years old I am stuck in a prog rock time warp so you will see (and hear) me posting songs I co-wrote in the 60s-70s that I am putting a 2013 spin on as well as a variety of some I wrote recently. Thanks for the listen And thanks for the comments and critique!
