Easy Street reminds me of hesitation blues. nice production, very clean and driven. But "When the Whistle Blows" is my choice for a Grammy winner!

Hello Joshua, thanks for the fun review of Bifocal Blues. It's a vintage, live recording. I still do this song in my shows for seniors, always great fun. Mrs. Kate

Hey Joshua, Hope you are doing well. Just been going through my BJ stuff checking and and thought I'd drop a quick "Hello" Keep on rocking and we'll talk to ya later. Have a great week.

Martin, thank you for your review of When the Whistle Blows, it was thorough and extremely useful to me, the most useful review I have ever gotten on Broadjam. I do have one question - you said "loose the chorus" - what did you mean?

Martin Weeks posted over 30 days ago


The lead vocals sounds like you are using the "chorus" effects. Don't need it. The voice is perfect for the genre, just needs some power behind it so it stands out in front of the music. Hope this is helpful.
I did not mean to lose the background vocals, they are cool, just the effects used on the lead vocals. Peace and "Blues Forever!"


Joshua Rice posted over 30 days ago


That's interesting, there is no chorus on the vocal but some plug-in must be creating that effect - I will check. Thanks.


Martin Weeks posted over 30 days ago


Perhaps it's some kind of stereo spread thing going on? Sure did sound like a chorus effect. Have a great week.

I uploaded a new mix today. If you have the time to check it out I would very much appreciate it.


Martin Weeks posted over 30 days ago


Hey Joshua, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Computer crash, stuff at work you know...anyway I just listened to When the Whistle Blows again, and whoa. Sounds much better. I like your grovel voice reminds me of vintage Mark Knopler and Dire Straits. Sounds like you did what I suggested. The background vocals sound much better in the mix put back, and your voice is now up front. I can hear the funky piano, and the harmonica solos are right in the pocket. Way cool my man. Talk to you soon. Peace! Marty

Your comments really helped, thanks. The biggest adjustment was in the mastering plug-in - so important! You sing your heart out and when you lose it in the final mix it is a real shame.


Martin Weeks posted over 30 days ago


I really do understand. Spent about six months wrestling with a 2 g XP software system using only basic wave drivers. Couldn't get a clear signal for vocals no matter what I did. Caught a computer virus and had to upgrade whether I could afford it or not. Now things are going very well. If you can I highly recommend using the wave rt drivers included in win 7 and up. I'll be redoing all my vocal tracks the rest of the weekend and enjoying every minute.
I'm glad my suggestions helped. The song is really cool. That gospel like background vocals really sews the whole thing together nicely now that it's behind the cool smoky vocals. Take care and talk to you soon.

hi Joshua, and thank you for the kind and well critiqued words on my Dirty Mama/Dirty Daddy Duet, which started out as just the male, i had a friend female do that version, then rewrote the lyrics just a bit to have the interchange...yeah, it could be sassier, and great comment, bit hell, it was my first and ONLY blues song, my producer is playing the guitar BTW, i'm not that good! all the best, Warren Hein

Hey Joshua,
I took your review advice to heart, took another look at Spotty Bob and updated it. Give it a listen if you have time and let me know what you think!

Thanks,

Michael

Hey, IMO it's a good solid piece. A couple of things...I am not a big fan of the synth horns. I do like the bubbling background textures that give it depth. Maybe lose the horns and ramp up the special effects (just a little).

Your review of The Rock was very constructive and much appreciated. You bring a "producer" perspective that adds real value. Please feel free to review my work whenever you are in the mood :)

Brian - Your review of my song (Honey Bee) was thoughtful, intelligent and very constructive. Thank you for making the effort. Your comment about genre was spot on - I have no idea how to classify this piece. Maybe "Other" :)

Thank you Joshua! It is very unusual. Was that a trumpet & was someone singing through it? I enjoyed listening. Was that you singing?


Joshua Rice posted over 30 days ago


I played and sang everything on the track except for drum loops. I think the "trumpet" you hear is my Bo Diddley/Slim Harpo-inspired slide guitar. It started as a chicago blues and morphed.
