This is my first project using GarageBand. It's a little funk number using drum, bass, and electric piano loops with me playing a bunch o' guitar tracks over it all. I also played a mandolin solo in there somewhere. At one point, my son came up to me and asked, "Daddy, what's this song called?" I said, "Well, Noah, let's call it Noah's Dance."

Enjoy,
Ed Nicholson

Hey Ed, you commented on one of my tracks, so I figured I'd return the favor. There's a lot to like about this track. Solid Funk. Great Playing. Nice Percussion and rhythmic work in general. I wonder if the bass could be turned up a bit more? (esp. during the mandolin solo, which is very nice, btw). How many different gtr tracks did you use?! I rated this a 4 for creativity simply because it doesn't quite strike me as a work of groundbreaking Funk (notice the capital 'F'); but hey, that's not easy to do, and this is a very enjoyable track on the whole. Good Stuff!

Dear JT,

Thanks so much for checking this out. Yeah, I hear you about the bass. I struggle with that all the time. Just how far do you push it? I'll think I have it just right and then I'll listen to the mix on a stereo at work and say, "Whoa! Way to thumpy." Then you go back to the drawing board and lower it and now it's thin. Mixing is the part I have the most difficulty with - the bass in particular. I posted another tune up here, Ultra Concentrated Joy, that has the guitar mixed right up front because I did it for a guitar contest. But now, I wish I had kept it back a bit with the bass and drums up more. Oh, well. The quest for perfection continues! smiley

This ended up being 12 tracks in GB and then I transferred each track to Cubase LE and added the Mandolin. I only did that because my little Mac Mini was beginning to choke on all those tracks! It doesn't sound like 12 tracks, because several are percussion "adornments" like cymbal crashes, chimes, etc. Anyway, thanks again for your input - after listening to your stuff, I value your opinion a lot.

Keep up the good work - your art blessed me.
Later,
Ed

This was solid and powerful. Loved how the keyboard and sustained guitar complimented one another. You're obviously a musician with skills. Personally, I thought the mix was superb.

The mandolin in a funk tune is so strange, but it works...

Yeah, it's not everyday you hear mandolin in funk. The Aquarium Rescue Unit does it nicely though.

Holy funking mandolins! Very original stuff. As concerns the bass comments above, your mix has a genuine 70s feel to it that would be lost if you upped the low end too much.

Yeah. I love the kicks in the middle of the song when the electric piano and guitar answer each other. Great jazz funk. Great guitar work, too. I had to listen to it twice and then make it a favorite. Great job.

I know you did this a long time ago but worth hearing. Cool guitar rythms and solos (especially the mandolin, almost Bela Fleck-ish). Nicely done mix and sounds.Thanks for sharing.

Good heavens, this is so well produced. I thinks it's really ok, even good sometimes, not to follow "Nashville" techniques. When you break out of that mold what you get often times is Dynamics. Ooo, don't get me started on all that.

Thanks Ed.
