I like this music very, very much. Maybe it’s catching me at just the right (or wrong) point, but I’m getting really emotional about it.

So just to balance it out I’ll say that the cymbals are a bit sharp and could be reigned in a bit.

There. Now I feel better. :)

Nice work.

colab—- I’ll take the blame on that sharp ride cymbal; as I’m the one bashing away on it. Thank you Pitx, for using the sample!

But, there’s not only one way to mix a drums. Snare, kick, hi-hat, can have more or less presence in a balance and change completely the beat. For me, those cymbals have the good place in this mix, and brings a jazzy atmosphere, and a peculiar swing..

Thank you colab.
The cymbals, mmm, yes, but… if you play the song in the living room and listen it in another room, then the cymbals are in the just place (this is a better solution than me touching the EQ knobs, he, he)

Yer blues, feels so good. Great guitar playing, a sad and beautiful thing.

a fine delta blues, sir. i really like your choice of chords which fit fine but also allow the vocal to pass in & out of three keys per verse. those have to be magic chords or maybe the ‘lost chord’. much enjoyed, thanks.

This might be a silly question but when you sing, do you have a tune in mind? I ask this because the vocals seem to fit the music so well and I would have thought that the music would come first. I’m also asking because I’d like to try more singing and I’m concerned that if I sing to a particular tune it will be difficult to remix. Sorry if this seems naive…I’m just learning :-)

there is always a certain melody behind the vocal but if the singer is singing a ‘C’ it can sound good against a ‘C’, ‘A’, or ‘F’ chord and many of their extensions & alterations so the remixer has a lot of leeway.

“hey, hey, the blues is allright … every day and every night.”
Nice blues Pitx


Agree with Colab about the too hot cymbals.

I enjoyed it a lot. Cool production, very clean. The rides volume is also a matter of taste but I feel too that it could be lowered a tadd. Like colab said, very emotional song. The accoustic guitar is GREAT!! Thanks :)

The ride cymbal is part of the FB sample and my skills (with EQ and other production things) are not enough to soften it, i must learn…
Thanks for leaving a comment.
