    Decent cut. Not bad at all. I think you had some good tone there. What guitar and amp did you use? Any OD or distortion for a boost or was that all amp? Did you sing also or does the band have a dedicated singer?

    Personally, I like the blues when the band slows it down for a while. Audiences want to hear "The Crossroads" or something like that that's lightining fast, but real soul, IMO, comes from taking a slow one and letting the instrument sing.

    LP STD with WCR Darkburst pups straight into a Zinky Blue Velvet. No effects added in the mix. Miced using a Sennheiser E609. All neck pickup with volume and tone maxed. Amp was set just above bedroom level and just keeps sounding better as you turn it up. Unfortunately I was singing, the other 3 guys jumped backwards faster than me when we first started figuring out who was going to sing.

    Good vocal tone too.

    When you get another cut ready, please post it too.
