Hi,

My last post here was my first try at something a bit heavier. I got a lot of constructive critisism and I found out that I had a lot to learn about that style. Mix the backing guitars a bit louder. Not so much reverb. My drums were way too whimpy.

Here is my next try. While I'm quite aware that I have ways to go I really enjoyed recordning this and that's no 1 in my book.

Guitar tracks were recorded with my Yamaha Pacifica 612v.
Amp sounds courtesy of my Boss GS-10.

Here's the track:
Plumbum


All kinds of feedback appreciated!

Cheers,

Mats N

Nice drums. Love the bass. The rhythm could be a tad louder. Not my style, but I'd like to give it a shot. Is there anything you can't play?

Hi Dave,

Thanks for listening.
Regarding the rhythm guitar being louder I have a problem with the lead competing for space with the rhythm. I tried to eq them differently but had little success. I too, would like the rhythm a bit louder.

Backing track is here for you and anyone else interested:

Thanks! I can almost feel my hair grow. I already have the belly measurements for a credibly "over the age" rocker of 47. :D

Hi Jeff,

You are really such a positive person. You always find something nice to say. Thanks!

Backing track is here:

Is there anything I can't play? Yes!!!! I really suck at bebop. Punk is out of my range as is grunge. Speed playing of any kind. Neo-classical is totally nonexistent here. With all the rest I cheat. :D

Cheers,

Mats N

I have a hard time with that as well Mats. Any of my stuff that has a distortion background and a distorted lead gives me fits. Especially when i mix it and think it sounds ok and then export it to MP3 and it doesnt sound the same as it did in the mixing software....have that trouble with my songs that have vocals as well and sometimes it takes 3 or 4 tries to get it right.

Still, this is a superb track both as a BT and as a finished song. your playing is great and i love the wide range of music styles you play. Your BTs keep me interested and on my toes and always give me something new to try.
