A Song For Sarah

Post by Quietly »

The title is misleading as their are no lyrics LOL First recording using a Hamer Monaco III two guitar tracks, bass, and couple of drum/percussion tracks.

Here is the Hamer

Thanks and you could be right as living in the sun plus being retired makes being laid back so much easier 8-)

Makes me wanna smooch somewhere with someone.

Or I could just wait until my glass is nearly empty and my cigarette end lies smoldering in the ashtray and grab a slow dance with the waitress cleaning the tables and stacking the chairs. And then just turn up my coller and walk into the drizzling dawn...

Great stuff - and yes, it could be longer. 8-)

This is very, very nice.

Is the song available for download somewhere? If not, I understand, but I wanted to ask just in case.

Niiice! Sweet, sweet tone on that guitar.
I love the feel of this, from that lazy drum groove with the riveted cymbal,
to the tasty playing.
I'm not sure if I'd have panned the rhythm guitar quite as hard left - and the bass on the right - maybe you were
panning as you perceived the instruments to be on a stage?
If that's the case, I still think you could have panned a bit more subtly.
I think the bass could use some more presence in the mix as well.
Other than that - no nits. Very well done.

Yeah... very nice... laid back, and well, just a real nice chill-out choon!
I do particularly like the open sounding mix and the ambience you have on this 8-)

I changed a Gibson LP Standard for the Talladega and got totally hooked on Hamer's. Then changed a Duesenberg TV Starplayer Outlaw for a Monaco III. Just wish I had discovered Hamer's years ago as without any doubt in my book they are one of the best out there.

Thanks Lenny you could be right on the mix but like I have said on another post it such a personal thing and we all have our own preferences. Bass was muddying up the mix originally so I thinned it down and kept it low down in the mix. Again possibly you are right and maybe I'll remix this one day.

Thanks,

Gerry
