Slow Burn - My new(ish) song

Here’s a track I wrote & recorded during the 1st lockdown. I drafted in a couple of my friends, Stefan on Bass & David on lead guitars to play on it. Such skilled players, they really made all the difference. Mastered it with Landr and garnished with some truly devastating dad-dancing moves, I’m sure you’ll agree. :laughing:

Hey Chubs, great song! You’re right about 3 things - bassist is fabulous, lead guitar is fabulous, and you can’t un-see the dance moves. Really good vocals. How did you like Landr? Sounds a little bright to me maybe? What was your mastering process before? Your tracks always sounded professionally mastered to me, so this is interesting. I was thinking of trying Landr.

Haha cheers, I’ll pass on the compliments to my choreographer (my dog).

I guess if it’s a bit bright, that’s probably my mixing, I’ve been told I do that before.
Actually, everything I’ve posted here I’ve used Landr, been using it for about 4 or 5 years now. I did experiment last year with the plug-ins that I have to see what kind of job I could do in comparison, but I could never get even close. If you wanna try it, I can run a track thru it for you.

I think a good mastering engineer with good gear will always do the best job, but for me this works just fine, I can just drag & drop and know I’m gonna get a good master.

Impressive sound my friend, super vocal, very pro radio ready song, I’m afraid the wop wop all the way through the song spoit it for me…otherwise, pretty awesome…

Hmmm dammit, yes now I’m totally conscious of it all the time! Maybe I should have left it only just in the intro. This is gonna bug me now :woozy_face:
Otherwise, thanks, much appreciated!

Very nice work on this. It sounds great and is performed really well. I’ve gigged primarily as a bassist, and I second Leon’s comment about the bassist and his playing.-very nice bass sound. You’re a fine vocalist too. That PRS lead at the end made me think right away of Santana. I liked this!

Cheers guys!
Altho I have to say, that wop thing is really bugging me now. I just focus on it when I listen to it now. Luckily it’s just as easy to bin it & re-release as it is to release in the first place, just a web form to fill in. I dunno if it does any harm to its rating, but in any case, these days I guess it might just get 25 plays instead of 30. I’ll post an edited version later.

My dog… :sunglasses:

I’m a bit late catching this one … but, glad I did!

Your dad dance moves remind me of my own. In other words, AWESOME! :rofl:

Really cool stuff all around. The song itself would be a winner, but the video adds so much.

Skills, for sure. Much respect. :sunglasses:

Great song, it’s one you can connect with on the first listen. Love the lead guitar sound. :grinning:
