Description
Haven't posted in forever but finally opened my DAW to try something. Kinda 80s-ish.
Me singing and screwing around on synths (except for a short guitar loop at the end). AD2 "Reel" drums for the beats.

Exquisite vocals
And I'm not just saying that. The harmonies are fantastic. Is that backwards piano I hear? Brilliant stuff.

Yep
I took a piano chord, reversed it, than added verb and a ping-pong delay. Got that idea from Bowie.

This Is What...
... a collaboration of Thomas Dolby, The Temptations and yes, I do believe, Curtis Mayfield might have sounded like back in the '80s.

Really excellent vocal and harmony work, Sammy. A really fun track. ;)

Mr Tarver
is Shawn Tarver, the lead guitarist for my old band. Before we hooked up, he was with this sort of glam band in the early 90s. He posted an old pic on FB with that prior band, and he was wearing this big, puffy pirate shirt with even bigger hair.
Song inspired.

Really cool
Finally able to hear it. Net issues sometimes here. The vocals are mixed very well. CAn hear them clearly. I always listen in earphones/headphones. Yea, very 80's style. Which is usually a good thing. Good job Sammy :)

You've got every 80's/90's sound going on here
... all at once, with great interlocking vocals and a design that keeps your interest locked-in from start to finish, wondering what's going to happen next.

Ha!
Everything and the kitchen sink. I wanted to go completely guitarless (well, almost), and tinker around with my ancient Oxy8 keyboard and midi. This was the result.

Mr. Tarver

Yeah
I think I experimented with vocal fx in this more than I ever have before. Mainly delays and phasing. I think light delays made most parts stand out a little better. Thx.
