This Town

Post by dodge27 » Sat Jul 09, 2016 3:06 pm

Hi , I have finally got the piano to sit right in this track ,it seems that not all pianos suit all tracks ( yep Im a guitar player , always wondered why those guys had so much stuff) I found out the Yamaha C7 piano is the pop/rock one, that sits easier in a mix.
hope you like it.

Nice one man, that's some really nice mixing there, amazing overall sound. I like your voice, and your guitar lines are awesome.
Personally I'm not a fan of the midi trumpets, I feel they're a bit out of place/overused. Amazing track though.

First class songwriting, that's what stands out for me. Great hook, I love it!
Acoustic guitar esp in ending phrase is ace.
Great drum fills.
Great ending vocal note in the bridge!
Good level of brightness without harshness to the track.
Sure, the horns could dial down a notch, but they give a great sense of syncopated rhythm for me.
Thanks so much for sharing with us!!
