The Loser-Original Sonar

Post by voclizr » Sun Sep 24, 2017 3:53 pm

A bluesy tune
...or Soundclick, if you prefer

Enjoy!
Question-Is the bass loud enough?

:D

I like this a lot. The bass is fine and the mix is fine for my taste.

Hey John,
Long time no see! Good to see that you are still putting out the hits. On my studio headphones the bass seems like enough. Although maybe it could be a bit fatter. Otherwise it's a nicely constructed piece in your usual style. The horns are a nice touch.

Nicely done John.

The Hammond sounds good and I wonder whether the solo should have used that sound.

Nice jazzy intervals step it away from pure blues.

Good to see a few old faces as it's been VERY quiet round here ;)

Cheers

Dick

Hi John!

I really like the instrumentation on this one. That e-piano sounds so great, as do the sax and other pianos and drums etc. You have really perfected your arrangement and production skills! Bass sounds fine on my headphones, I especially like the higher parts.

Lyrics are very nice and thoughtfull, too.

Congratulations, another good one!

Bye Wolfi

Thanks all for listening and the comments. :D ;)

@lungfruit-Thanks for the comment on the horns. That's a 3 part arrangement that I spent a great deal of time on.

@dickl-Yeah, the NI vintage organ collection is fun to play with. It has the B3, C3 and M3 classics as well as models of the old Vox Continental (think Dave Clark Five) and Farfisa (think Doors). I did the best I could with it given that I was never an organist and have no experience with navigating around a two manual.

V, first off, thanks for listens and comments on my song(s). I appreciate it very much.

Yes, it's good to see old friends back. It's like the old days - Saturday morning and I'm listening to new tunes on 2090.org! :rock:

Very jazzy. The bass sounds fine to me. I like this piano program. Is that you playing some solo runs on the keys? Like that nice horn sound during the break? Is that you? Good lyrics and well recorded. Wow, it all meets at the end very nicely.

I like it! Keep them coming.

Nice blues style. Impressive range on the ol' vocal. Arrangement good, the drums a little dry. I enjoyed it.

Sounds good, JB. I like the laid back feel of this one. Very full sounding RECing. Needs some electric guitar! :guitar:

Thanks Cracky, elmer & surfercook. :D :D
Yeah, that's all me, Sean.
@surfercook-Maybe in some other life a bit of guitar would sound OK. I don't do collabs anymore.

;) :D
