Hear Me Coming
on: February 15, 2022, 21:23:16
Hi Kitcheneeers! 

I had a free night and some fungi and it turned into a creative outburst.  ::Suzy::

This one is a different vibe than what I normally do.  It's a vintagey boogie rock tune comprising of exactly two total chords.  But it came together so well that I actually might be done with it. 

I actually mixed this one in mono.  First time I've ever mixed fully in mono and i really like it.  Keeps things simpler for my overcomplicating mind.  I think I pulled the vintage sound I was going for though. 

BUT, I challenge you all to NOT tap your toe, stomp your foot, or bob your head along to this one  ;D

Would love to hear your thoughts and insights.  Thank you!

Song about a muscle car

Lyrics:

Hear me coming
Im back again
Im bringing something
that you wont forget
Hear the rumble
Feel the ground beneath your feet
Get out the kitchen if you cant take the heat

Hear me coming
around the bend
best be watching
as I roll in

Hear me coming
Im at your door
Got ya going
And I want some more
I feel you shaking
way down deep into your soul
drop the top down and watch the steel turn to gold

Hey @Knate  - just like  The Ghost Cats said  "this is just a cool rock song, great"
Fine Kitchen reference too - may be @Mo & @1roomstudio  an idea for after "Green".

The style and straightness of the mix remind me of early Fleetwood Mac.  The solo is ace, must be great to have a band play this live.
You write and recorded this in one night! Hats off  :pompom: :praise: :praise:

Thanks @oorlab !

I like the early Fleetwood Mac reference.  I always liked the Peter Green stuff better than the Stevie Nicks era.

Honestly, I had a 70% rough mix after one night.  Spent the next few listening, tweaking, adjusting, retracking, etc.  This current mix came about last night after retracking a few vocal lines. 

I still can't believe I pulled off that solo.  Im a pretty limited soloist so this one was a really welcomed surprise.

I hope to play it with my band one day too.  I think it would knock em dead live  ;D

Great tune! Love that you mixed it in mono....it definitely gives it an early rock vibe. Your vocals have that vibe as well.

I really like how the guitar works with the drums.

Hola @Knate
The truth is that your experiment of recording in mono has given a good result, I have to try it or also.... Hmmm
The song has incredible strength, your voice is very dynamic, it has punch. I liked it.

Stay wellllll

Hey Knate . . . really enjoyed this one !  . . . here in Canada we might call this rockabilly, but it's a rockin' song either way. You mention mono, yes that totally works for this one, comes straight at you and is totally radio (and iPhone) ready. Your vocals really deliver here, and I especially like the outro ooh oohs, you're having some fun and that translates perfectly for the first time listener. Goin' back for another hit, as a second time listener.

Hey hey, I like this a lot. Are we the only two who are happy with most and fore all making some noise?
I hope this inspires more people to let all inhibitions go. The less we think about it, the better it gets.

What was it the MC5 said? Kick out the jams, motherfucker!!!!!
Kind regards, Gus
