HI, I did a quick mix tonight just to get an idea of what you are looking for. Give it a listen and let me know what you like, dislike, and how you would like me to proceed, ASSUMING you would like me to take it forward..... Great songs... thanks for the opportunity to work on it.
Below is a copy of what I wrote in the discussion section. It's a general request and not a critique of your track. The only thing I did notice was the missing 1/8th note one bar contrasting rhythms mentioned there. You might have missed it.
My writing was admittedly in need of proof reading but I think it's fairly clear now. When you have time, please upload a SEP after you do something with the straight 1/8ths so I can take a better listen? No hurry! I can provide the notes if you want to play unison with the Sax. It will save you time and the chore of transcribing it. You can try different approaches to hear what sounds good.
Copied from the discussion section:
"Bass players. Roots on the downbeat of one sound good to me and tasty voice leading to the next chord is appreciated. By that, I'm not meaning a lot of notes. No need to over play. The accents mentioned for drummers should be applied too.
"Drummers The tune is a swing feel but, In the first Chorus the 1st and 2nd A sections, the last measure is a run of straight 8th notes that you can accent in unison with the Sax. In the second chorus, I forgot, while I was playing, to include the run but did play it at the end of the second A section. " I'm looking for the rhythmic contrast to add interest."
Hello: I LIKE This... Nice feel, and spot-on. Really ties things together. If Joel accepts, I can use this for a kick drum tie-in, and rework the acoustic drum tracks... GOOD JOB...
Something I discerned from the time here: There is a difference between Collaboration and Orchestration.
I think I understand what Joel s looking for so I will make a new sep in the morning to upload. GIve us another day.
RealAl….If I understand the difference you are writing about, yes, I had, at one point added some string instruments , vocal and lyrics to the call. I changed my mind and reverted back to only Bass and Drums.
