      Definitely wasn’t a drum machine. Machines don’t do that “human error” thing very well and, if I may, the drumming exhibited plenty of “human error” on that clip. Probably the Weakest Link (“Goodbye!”). I heard some quite nice bass; better than the usual guitarist-playing-bass and machines have come on a bit if that was autobass. It just wasn’t audible most of the time.

      Have to agree, kick back a bit, let some notes ring for a while, if anything it adds power to the ones you pick. Other than that the guitar is sweet just don’t kill notes to get to the next one, if you can’t get there smoothly drop it…IMO.
      Other than that, get a bassist, that was either programmed or a guitarist playing bass…neither works very well.
      Keep messing about with it though, I honestly believe the blues format will run forever because people (myself included!) love to **** about with it.

      Well yes, I would like the solo to stop in reasonable time. Be fair, it was a clip – I’m assuming that a gig would have, like, singing. Songs, even. I’ve been to some “join in” blues nights and rigidly refuse to. Except for one occasion when a “blues-rock” (the absolute worst kind) band had a sudden bass player problem and my band had done our slot. Everyone insisted that I should help them out.

      Our soundman, who loves that sort of thing, was grinning and winking with that “Admit it, you’re really getting into it aren’t you?” look (No). The band’s singer/guitarist was leaning over at me shouting

      “A”
      “D”
      “A”
      “D”

      before he could shout “E” I shouted “I know what 12-bar is so **** off and play your guitar”

      After 3 mins of non-stop widdling i’d be looking for the sleeping pills,
      it’s good that you keep the bass way down in the mix 😆 thats where it belongs!
      It sounds like a drum machine to me, is it a live drummer? (well as live as a drummer can get)
      But let the song breathe, dont drown it with that pentatonic murdering solo guitar.

      Bass, how can you say you would be happy to listen to that all night?

      The worst night out of the month down the pub is the ‘Blues Jam Night’ , usualy a thurs eve, and mostly fronted by ‘the good ol’ blues boys band’ consisting of 4 old beardies of varying degrees of pot bellyness, the front man (uausly the guy with the highly polished red strat) will always be wearing a natty looking leather waistcoat.
      They start the evening off with 6 carefully chosen (by the frontman) blues classics, that by the middle of the 2nd song has everyone reaching for the razor blades and paracetamol.
      Then someone jumps up to join in, he usualy has a very expensive highly polished custom shop Gibson, probably worth more than most of the cars in the car park, and plugs in to a crappy little Peavy bandit amp.
      He widdles out a 3 minute solo in A minor while the unsuspecting punters retreat to the other bar to watch International hurling on Sky Sports.
      The audience slowly thins out to a crowd who are mates with most of the players on stage.

      Seriously, ive been to 2 Blues nights, and they were both like that, our band went along to play for the Landlady of a very nice venue in Hornchurch to audition for her, we played when the ‘Good ol Blues Boys’ were having a break.

      Could’nt wait to get home.

      I quite like it, in an early Santana sort of way. I think the tone of both guitars is pretty good, but there is a point where (as Lee says) the rhythm guitar does an interesting move but it’s swamped by the lead. The Hammond sounds great. Why don’t you like the bass player? I can only hear about four of his notes so bring him up in the mix.

      Your drummer needs to either buy some decent cymbals or have the microphones placed properly. If that doesn’t work, he should stop hitting them. They do sound awful.

      Overall, though, I’d be happy enough if I were sat in a bar and this was playing on the stage.

      It sounds OK, but its far too busy, you need to put some space in your recordings.
      i would like to hear 8 bars of the 2nd guitar without the lead solo guitar widdling over the top.
      take out some cymbal crashes too the drums sound far too busy.
      clean up the guitar sound on 1 of the guitars.
      But it sounds a lot better than that ‘Stones’ thing you offered up.

      Lee.
