    The Road To Forever Never More ~ Take 2..Now with Guitars

    Here is the track with a wonderful simple lead guitar played by Buckshead. Over the years I have work with some axe players but it is a true joy to find one that understands less is more.

    I also added a ghosted rhythm guitar.

    The style of music/sound I do is a blend of Spector's old Wall of Sound (using the orchestra to backup the rock) and Arena Rock.

    Hippie, Thanks for posting the new mix. It may be just my system, but the
    guitar, bass, and drums are way too low in the mix, the main parts I'm hearing are the organ like chordal sounds on both left and right sides. I'm limited to headphones right now, my monitors went kaput, and maybe I'm not hearing this right. Maybe someone else can check this out. John

    Give me 15 minutes and I'll jack the drums up. I kind of thought they were a little low but I was in a hurry to make a beer run.

    Every thing else is kind of set in stone. The organ is a layered track (4 different organ tracks to make 1). Yes, I have to much time on my hands. LOL

    I'll also layer the guitar track with 1 more layer each.

    10 more minutes and I'll put it up....if it sounds okay here.

    Hi Hippie,

    Not really into this form of Music, but I'm thinking some gradually
    get softer in phrase ends could allow the listener to follow better.
    It reminds me of a Vivaldi piece used in a Russian picture of a run-away train.
    Constant loud obscures because the ear gets tired.
    Different section: change instruments or octave.
    You may not want this. If so, forget I said anything.

    Phantom of the Opera meets Pink Floyd. Cool piece. I understand how the chords can be overpowering to some, but I think I get what you're going for so it works. Very powerful and in your face.

    They need to make a little smiley face with a 6 pack for you.

    I like the big wall sound but I can't hear the guitar.

    Crank it up man!

    Howdy, Hippie!

    Ah---GRAND ROCK! That's what I'd call it. And reminds me of one of my favorite groups from the '60's-'70s, Procol Harum, and how their songs would sometimes build to these gigantic anthemic endings which your piece here is akin to.

    Maybe you've uploaded yet another version since Phil took a listen, but I could hear the guitar just fine. All instruments have fairly equal billing here, and I think that was your sonic intention.

    Gary's objection I would say was a good reflection of his taste. He would like it to ebb and flow in a more classical way, but that isn't what this sort of thing is meant to be.

    I had a great time with it. Made me feel like I was flying--I'm sure that's the way you felt when you put it together. Big sound, big emotions, and big on success, I'd say.

    Thank you Randy.

    How I missed THIS post I will never know.

    I like all the instruments to blend together as one big happy family with everyone having their own space. In my minds eye I see the rock instruments as part of the orchestra.................................







    ..........................that way everyone get their share of the groupies.

    I gotta go with Randy on this, Hippie... GRAND ROCK!

    I'm listening during daylight for a change, so I've got
    this jacked up on the big speakers.

    Best,

    If anything breaks in your house or there is damage to the foundation or the windows, I don't want to hear about it.
