35mph winds, gusting to 50.  Lost power for a few hours, had to run the generator.  Back now, but don't know for how long.  Freezing rain/snow/sleet.  Not a nice day...

Me too RJ, I brew my own beer and distill spirits (making a really fine bourbon these days) and have just started wine making. My peach wine is a peach, as  we wine makers say, very drinkable, with a hint of peach. Can't remember tho last time I was drunk,  not because I was drunk, just too long ago

I'm an avid homebrewer with a few beers on tap at all times.  Having said that, I hate even feeling tipsy let alone drunk.  So I'm like Whitestrat in that I may have 1 or 2 over the course of an evening but that's it.

Never been much of a drinker. I don't abstain, but 1 or 2 drinks, over a couple of hours, is more than enough for me....
You might be right, neil....  :P

Alcohol is so very "college" for me.  I drank a lot of it back in college.  Didn't drink any in HS. After graduate school, it became sort of ho-hum.  Now, occasionally I'll have a beer at a restaurant with dinner. I don't even keep them at the house.  Now, Diet Coke on the other hand...

Used to drink soda (pop) a long time back, but got so I didn't care for anything carbonated.  I do miss a good Root Beer once in a while - with ice cream...

Yeah, but I gave up alcohol back in the early '70's.  Been coffee ever since.  4-5 cups an hour when I'm home, 2-3 an hour when I'm out working.  Every place I work knows they get a better deal if they keep coffee handy...

Album....
« on: February 07, 2018, 04:16:19 PM »
Thought I'd share a little of what I've been working on for the last 2 weeks. The song choices are the client's and I had to learn the songs (all but one) and attempt to interpret them to fit his style. My lead vocal will be replaced with his. So far he's happy in spite of some of the less than perfect bits.
This compilation is a bit of an exercise to see how my mixes/recordings compare from one tune to the next, and song placement on the album. Three more songs will be added yet.

Have yourself a listen, comment if you like.

The King of Saskatchewan Country strikes again!

Sounds great!
The mixes are great, and the whole thing is pretty balanced too from what I can tell.....

Track placement is pretty good, although I’m not sure that any different order would make the slightest difference since most  of  the songs are all fairly similar in style and content.....
But  the “Ghetto” song and “16th Street” really stick out as not belonging to the whole.... they’re just slightly different to the rest....might be better to split them up and find a good spot to drop them in elsewhere....
If this was vinyl or tape I’d say put them at the ends of the sides  :P

That’s not to say they’re not phenomenal songs....just that they don’t gel with the “Trad” vibe from the rest.....UNLESS the other three songs to be added are more like them, then you’d have a really interesting album as a whole.....

But hey, the customer is ALWAYS right...even when they’re wrong  :P

All in all it sounds great!
You should be proud of it....
