Thanx for all the listens and replies fellow ZOOMERs.
So burned out from working but I'll address comments anyways...cuz it's fun!
Sweet electric on the lead. Rolled back tone.
I must have auditioned 20 distortion tones before just going w/that one. I like that description too...I Googled it and found this definition that I thought was cool.Roll back tone cleans up and darkens and then as you roll it back further it loses all the distortion as it cleans up completely.
find a real drummer to record with.
Would be nice...I have a buddy who rocks on a kit, but he has two kids, full time job, commute...he's all used up!!
Sometimes I think to myself, just look on Craig's List or something and find a stoked jammer like myself...then go rent some studio and charge!! Maybe one day.
not everyone here knows that for every song you post, there are maybe five more that you've done at around the same time. Or is five too conservative an estimate?
Well...I prob have recorded about 3 songs/week since returning from Costa Feb 1. Most are pretty much just a straight progresh looped w/a bunch of soloing over it.

I don't like the distortion used for the lead,just my opinion.
I am not surprised you are not fond of distortion. Have to admit that over the yrs I've also leaned towards a cleaner tone. Not like my youth when I would ALWAYS crank the electric.
Another new tune from my hero!
You're not gonna start stalkin' me I hope!!
Love the keys!
Thanx...you're the only one to mention them. Originally this tune was pretty stripped down and I decided to augment the sound w/those keys. I used the You Rock Guitar linked to the Piano/Strings combo patch in Mixcraft and did some minor editing to clean it up a bit.
Your lead is always good but lacks of finesse.
I am a pretty sloppy player.
the bass is mostly great candy, good job, sounds like a fretless, nice sliding.
I've never picked up a fretless...just my Mexi Fender Jazz here.
My wife will love this song, she always love your songs and she will tell me 'Louis, play guitar like him'
That is nice to hear.
It kinda has a 'Joe Satriani' vibe to it
That is a nice compliment...Satriani is no slouch of virtuoso.
Keep em' coming bro!
No prob there!
I don't think I remember any song of yours having any kind of overdrive on the guitar
There's been a couple here and there, but I usually go w/the clean tones.
I do have a few nits/suggestions that may help you with these different type sounds you've branched out with....
I really appreciate all the help, recent and in the past, James. You are always willing to share your knowledge and "Recipes" w/us fellow home recording artists. Hope you never lose that, buddy.
Maybe low pass the guitar, it has the "fizz"
I sooo heard that, especially at the end fade. It has a kinda decay sound that is pretty bad. I did use a noise reduction to cut it a bit. Unfortunately I know nothing about low pass filter...but I'm sure there's plenty of info available out there for me.
The drums are a little busy & flat, maybe pick some different sounding loops with softer/harder playing here/there, & different beats/grooves for dynamics
No arguement there..I was kinda lazy w/the drums on this one and just went w/the loops in Craft's library. I thought they fit pretty nicely considering they were pretty limited.
the mix as a whole needs more level matching
I would imagine some vol automation would help for said leveling. Thing is, this project froze and the only back-up that is opening is missing some of the tracks/takes.
