Cititzens arrest....citizens arrest! Thread title waaaaaaaaay out of compliance Mr. D. - Article 1, subsection 3.
:P
Pretty good toon here. Not really liking another one with nature sounds in it, but I liked the git and beat very much. Would like to hear a version without the ocean, but.....
A very clean recording........... :hilarious:
Seriously, this is a smidge bit more than 'hey listen, I can hit record and play my instrument'. And it's not a cover. :cheer:

Awesome Guy! How I wish sometimes I could throw together a finished track in just a cpl of hours! I'm stuck in this 'epic' mode, where everything I do has to be produced to death! OK, I guess I enjoy that part of the whole music making thing...but it would be nice to create stuff quickly like this occasionally.

The track...great melodies, very well played! awesome guitar sound! I want an acoustic like that! And you have a solid drum beat goin' on! I suppose you'll tell us that was a beat from your i-phone or something! Superb effort Guy! bobby t :applause:

Thank you so much .

Yes Marc you are my favorite surfer !

Hey Steve ,you are too kind.


Hi Bob
you are probably the only one here who could lile this kind of drums.
I used my daughter's synth, a preset called "UK beat"
Only one fill in available unfortunately.

Clean recording? not bad and strange.
I played very close to the mic,less than one foot,and I don't hear my fingers
on the guitar and Lisa playing around....a miracle!!

Thanks again!!

Nice playing & mix (pretty used to that from you Guy........), the sound fx are ok, I'd left 'em out myself, but it adds to the surfer vibe......Maybe add some drum fills, but you said there are only 1 to choose from, so I guess that's not a possibility.....Again, nice playing & mix, cool tribute to the Surfercook!!!

Very nice Guy. A really professional mix on this and the guitars sound excellent. In fact, some of the best I've heard from you which is a real compliment as you set such a high standard anyway :)

Cheers

I like this!

Obviously the drums aren't amazing, but they work ok in the context of the song. The guitar is really nice!

Sounds great, except for that one drum, the insistent one (snare?). I'd try turning that one down, or maybe try leaving the 1 & 4, cutting the 2 & 3...I dunno, maybe. Very nice guitar.

Very smooth Guy. As usual, excellent guitar work. Liked the break-away, by using the drums you did, and the surf track.

Sounded nice, a miced guitar sounds so much better than line in.

Well done getting this recorded with all the other stuff going on ...

What did you record this with? New equipment?

Cheers

Another pretty tune, guitar fan.

I am not too hip on the drums, espeically the one gwood pointed out. It distracts from the lovely guitar work. But that's just my opinion.

I am okay with the ocean sounds. :D

Very nice, Guy, but I think it would benefit from a bass part. If you got one in there you need to turn it up a bit. Needs more bottom.

What amazes me is your natural sense of harmony, melody, and voicing, Guy. So addicted to learning/playing this one....as I have been with most of your other compositions. :guitar: :guitar: :guitar: What I don't think I'll ever understand is your constant use of alternate/open tunings...just puts you on an entirely different level than me.
Jammin' along to guitar fan's tune, "Surfers".
