Description
It's more country-rock I think. Anyways, first tune with the new toy, Logic Express 9. I'm still at the "I-wonder-what-this-button-does" stage and loving it.

It's from the album I've been working on . . . After The Math

Country Rock
Always loved that flowing, easy, open road sort of feel that pervades so many great country songs. The band does it very well, i think. The closing 'orchestral' part is fun, but devalues the emotional tone of the preceding track to some extent, or am i taking it too seriously?

The vocals are remarkable, but with the greatest respect i wonder if i might suggest that they would go better if the key of the song was raised by a tone or two?

Enjoyed it. Thank you.

Excellent feedback Marc
I wish I had a more musical reason for including the Wm Tell Overture in this. Fact is, I was just having fun and it seemed right. But if a big music company were to give me buckets of money to drop it, I'd probably be amenable to that :) Feel free to crop it out if you prefer, I wouldn't be offended.


The tune is in G, so I'm guessing you're suggesting A (damn, F#m sucks lol). I don't sing lead that much, so I'm rarely in charge of the key and G seems to be the one most of the singers I work with prefer. Come to think of it, I do most of my blues tunes in A . . . hmmmm

Way to break out
The LE9. Great mix and a cool tune. Great guitar tunage and I'm digging the vocals. Great backing from the bass section.... all around fine collab.

Welcome to Logic!
Cool song snow ;)

Lots to like here - as usual, I've been nit-hunting. I reckon you could drop back the lead vocal and lead guitar a little, boost the bass and drums (especially the drums), and give the backing singers a little more volume. Just balance issues really.

Logic is not as difficult as a lot of people make it out to be - just keep experimenting and it will eventually fall into place.

Love the ending!

Cheers from our 25ºC summer :)

lol
figures a bass player would love a tune that ends with a bass riff lol.

Your points on mixing are well taken. The mixing board in Logic has just blown me away. I could literally spend weeks just monkeying around with it. I have yet to figure out how to do volume and pan automation points with it but then there are so many areas to explore, it may be awhile before I get around to that. Now that I listen to it, I think you're right about the lead vox, bass (Tom will be glad to hear that lol) and especially the drums. I never seem to get the lead vox right, a born harmony singer I guess :)

Anyways, your astute comments are always welcomed.

Cheers from the -15C Great White North winter. How are the mosquitos down there? :)

Good ol Boy Country
Love Country songs like this, they remind of the days when Country was Country and not Rock with a twang. Real Country music.

Go a nice arrangement and some fine picking throughout, but especially in the lead break.

I've got to wonder why you did the ending the way you did on this. While enjoyable, I think it takes away from the song. It's 2+ minutes of self indulgence that, while well done, doesn't need to be there. The song was great as a Country song and stands on it's own in that regard.

Just my humble opinion.

That seems to be
the consensus of opinion on ending with part of the Wm Tell Overture. I may have to rethink it but I'd like to point out that it was the theme song for the Lone Ranger way back in the 50s (or at least when I was a kid) and like it or not, its connection to the country genre is forever cemented (at least in my mind).

It could be self-indulgence, conceded. Or it could be an attempt to blend genres, however ill-conceived that may be. I guess when it comes down to it, it was just trying to be different. I'm guessing that nobody wants to hear our version of Folsom Prison Blues/Pinball Wizard lol.

In the end though, probably the biggest reason I (and most macjammers I suspect) post songs here is for the feedback and yours is very much appreciated. Thanks again Ed.

Experimentation is the author of Genius,
so I see no reason not try things like this when the urge strikes you. Besides, you are correct about the William Tell Overture being the theme used for, not only the original TV show from the 1950s, but also from the preceding Radio show from the 1940s. There is a connection there between Cowboy songs and this classical piece of music.

I still love the song, even if the ending is a little "unexpected"
