Cyclotron split the atom
Walton flicked the switch

Chain reaction
Plutonium

Rudi and Klaus
Did their bidding

They could see
their bones through closed eyes

1000 times
Brighter than the sun

Then the Black rain it fell

From Kiloton to Megaton.

I stopped by to post my own new tune.......but I have spent my time listening to this instead. Those guitars sound so good, especially that Gretsch lead at around 2:10. That Gibson sounds fine as well.

Wonderfully haunting vocals.....great mix....and a hooky melody line that really sticks.........I think I'll leave the stage to you, man, and post mine another time.

Thanks for listening Lenny, and of course thanks for the nice words. It was funny I tried a different Gretsch guitar and it didn't work (6118T with Filtertron pickups), but the 6120T with it's T-Armond pickups (made by TV Jones), it just stuck right there in the mix and made it fun to play.

So here's that tune I just finished up. It's just something that came from a riff that I tracked on my old Stella.

I just fired up the Peluso while I was playing to catch the riff so the guitar track is kind of noisy......that old guitar is pretty noisy to play anyway. I liked the feel of it so I just went with it and let it lead me into the lyrics.

Ozzy, ok, that's cool.

Now why in the world would I want to have the vocal mixed up in a dark rock track like this? It's already too loud as it is! But thanks for the input.

I wrote a few little extra ditties for my CD about love and heartbreak just to help the transitions between songs. Here's one I wrote last night...

https://soundcloud.com/daniel-weldon-1/try-again

It's just 4 channels, two guitars a J45 rhythm/slide on a Violet Globe Vintage mic, two voices on a Rode Classic II.

Try Again / Weldon 2019

I've been lookin' for a way back home baby
I've been wondering do you think about me
do you ever think of the good times
do you ever think about me

I've been feelin' that I wrecked it baby
I can't help but think I lost my mind
I remember how you tried so hard
could you ever forgive me

I just want to find my way back home
I just want to find my way back home to you

I've been wondering could you love me two times
would you ever try again with me
could you ever try again with me

Starting a new music project. It is going to be a "story" of sorts, a musical journey on Soundcloud with timed releases of each track, almost like a tv series. "Gremlin" is the story of a man who tried to kill himself after his girl left him for another man, which he had suspected for quite some time. However, his suicide attempt is futile and fails. The man begins anew, but with an uncertain future ahead.

Each track is composed in an electronic improvisational fashion - the next track in the story then uses the completed mastered track of the previous as a foundation for the new track. So ride it out through each if you can, you never know where it may turn.
Curious for thoughts on production and musical quality, it's a tad experimental, fusing ambient, cinematic, electronic, and trap elements. I've linked the tracks in order-

Sounds great! That bass tone's definitely got some hair on it.

I like the tune but I have to say that its not only the vocal thats buried Everything needs more space and separation to my ear.. Good song but needs better mixing

.....a little dirt....it's a nice thick tone that seems to have some nice harmonic resonance and even a little musical distortion.

Sorry to be so cryptic.

Sounds like you're describing my voice Uncle Len...



Oh, wait, you said... "a little dirt", not, "he gargled with a mixture of cigarette butt juice and cheap whiskey".

Hey guys, I've still got this "one-man band" thing going on. This is a new piece that I've been working on lately in my home studio. I feel it is quite ready as it is, but I can still hone it before final release. Feel free to comment on the production side of things or the song in general.. I am open to feedback and always look forward to hearing your notes on my creations.

You have a very good voice that's fits very well with the vibe on this tune.
The Vocal also sounds good production wise. the song itself is good and there are some cool guitar tones happening as well. production wise I hear some problems.
Theres ALOT of hiss. its very noticeable in the intro, throw a gate on whatever
is causing it. I can't hear the kick drum at all and the quality of the drums overall
is weak for this genre of music. The bass sounds to me like a lot of the low end was E.Qed out
was this intentional? This is a solid effort overall and I dig the tune!

Feedback on overall production - very simple

Hi friends, just looking for some feedback on this very simple song/mix. Just two guitars and 1 vocal with a bit of percussion.

Thanks!
