@Jambrains and @MrBouzouki -- great work! Can you export your dry tracks and send them over? I would love to find out how this fits in with what I have now. My mail is ajwvdberg@gmail.com
Let me know!

What do you think, @Leonard Scaper, is there still life in this? And how do you like your bass in the mix as it stands now?

Listening to the mix from yesterday before @Jambrains  and @MrBouzouki added things in is sounds like you have it tucked in nicely. Once we see more parts added in it may need more bottom.

I can't wait to hear where this goes..........such a great Kitchen project.

Hold your horses!  :D
Nothing I recorded is usable, I was just jamming over the track to see what would come out.
If there is some idea in there that you think would be usable point them out to me and I'll try to play and record them right  ;D

I'll send the second one over as its more developed but I want to check the timing first and check the harmony again. :-)

New version, added some keyboard.
I think it needs some clean, gutsy guitar parts. Not heavy on chords, but cool notes, to cut through the vocals and get some depth and keep it in pace!

That mix really sounds great.

I love everything that is going on here.........definitely looking for that other guitar part.

OK folks - here is another demo featuring some attempted vocal following riffs, the harmony guitar chorus parts and a bit of noodling at the end.
In some ways you could say it's a typical Mr Bouzouki sound when playing electric. Feel free to use any / all of this.  ;D

I've left plenty of space in this for other things to be added. I've left a solo slot free too ;-)
I quite like the space early on, it has a bit of 'atmosphere' I think.

Since I grabbed the track with added keyboards I haven't tried to balance the guitars much at all. I've tended to leave them quite loud so you can her what's going on.
It should be all on tempo, I had a click track going when recording some of the early bits so i could get a feel for the underlying beat.

https://soundcloud.com/mrbouzouki/jar-mb-guitar-parts/s-I0NzU

I wanted to demonstrate the potential with reverb on those early parts. I quite like the floaty reverb sound and it sits behind the vocal I think. I can send dry stems to the e-mail you supplied  ;)

EDIT - Stems e-mailed

Hi all. Here's the latest version: https://soundcloud.com/johan-van-den-berg/just-a-ride-04/s-DVy3J
@MonoStoneMusic has been really helpful and pushed me to write a bridge. It's in, but there is no bass in that part yet. I hope @Leonard Scaper will help me another time to fill those few bars? There a G chord in the bridge, zo there's no patching your original track, and besies, I'm sure you want to get it just right.

Also, @Leonard Scaper, thank you for the instructions on how to mix in the bass. I honestly have no idea about frequencies, but I followed your steps and it is such a huge difference, I hope you agree.
Then there is a little sax part in the bridge, a friend of mine kindly played it and it inspire me to wirte the bridge.

The guitar parts that were sent by @MrBouzouki did not end in the mix yet, I'm not sure if they fit in. But it's still in progress and focus was on the bridge, so who knows.

Any suggestions are still welcome. Thanks so much for all the help, it is a wonderful experience and totally new to me.

Wow....what a difference. Listen to how the bass and the guitar play together from 1:50 to 2:00, for instance. I really like what you did with the vocals at around 2:35 as well. This mix is really coming together now.

I'll get the bass back out today for that excellent bridge.

Guys just to show my involvement, I'm following from the side-line. Just want to express how much I love to see collaboration projects like this one evolve. Listening to the latest mix now and I'm not at all going to influence the creative process. I loooove what I hear and it makes me feel so proud these things (and the love being shared) are happening in our kitchen. Wonderful! Karma storm for all of you!!
