Should I keep these solo's dry?

Lovely tune, feel and playing.

I reckon a little bit of greese would sound sweet.

Sounds real nice as is too though. Probably sounds dryer because the vox has a little verb on.

Can you not use a plugin rather than re-record. you might lose the original vibe............

I love it when people have the nerve to print w/out efx ( or to quote a friend, "talent" )
If anything, a little delay (barley audible in time 1/4 note ) might be cool???
But I dig it as is too.

Really dig the tune, playing and vocals. A little Dan influenced?
Very cool.

Well, I wouldn't really mind if you kept it like it is but why not try adding a bit of reverb if you can do postprocessing. By the way, I noticed some slight crackling noises during the guitar solo. Not that I really mind those either. Nice tune by the way, and cool playing as always :)

Chuck has a point.
It sounds like a snappy, clean recording a' la Fagen/Steely Dan (and what could be wrong with that?).

Take a lead from Morph The Cat or related mixes: add a taste of ambient reverb or whatever and A/B the mixes. A touch of slap/verb might be cool too.

A tasty track & solid performance.

I don't know...it's pretty cool dry guy. I mean it's in your face. A little verb & or delay here or there wouldn't hurt my feelings but it's cool dry. Excellent job!

+1 - doesnt need much though- sweet chops and feel on the whole tune (and Lee Dorsey is the man)

I would be interested to hear how it sounds with the mix a little different (more drums less guitar)
To me tonally the guitar is fine, esp considering the style.

Thans for all of the ideas.

Turns out the point is moot as the bass player who co-wrote the song wants to bring in another guitar player to play the solo.

I really dig this tune...feels like I'm driving down A1A to South Beach...very hip groove...maybe a tiny bit of reverb, but it sounds great just the way it is now. Excellent job.

Hey Joe. I like it just like it is. It kind of feels like a daydream- going here and there and plenty sweet.

I recorded the band that I'm in at my house this weekend and recorded the guitar solo pretty dry through the board. Do you think I should re-record the solo's through an amp?

The solo is at about 2:24

Thanks

In a word - no. I think what you have fits the vibe perfectly. I would maybe just add a little verb at the board, EQ or compression to taste if you like, but that punchy quality to the direct guitar sits nicely in the rest of the track.

Joe,

I did not sing this. It was sung by our drummer. He's a really good singer.

Sounds nice as it is. But having another go with an amp would give you more options (but with that real clean sound) And for reverb the kind of reverb that you can,t hear (ha) but you can tell when its not there, would go well I think. Its a great song and the tone of the vocal and phrasing I love. Really like that picking guitar part as well. :AOK
