This song is chapter one of the Puppy Dog Tales. A collection of songs which will be put onto an EP a collection of sorts> The song itself led off a very basic pick, the G, C interchange that occurs right at the beginning and remains through out. Using my fx pedal I crafted some sounds around, The straight/reversed chordal guitar, a mini lead and a hammond style bass. The drums are from ezdrummer. There is a little harmony from myself, reversed and delayed.

I haven't really had a chance to make music for a while now, what with my new job and sorting out moving and my teaching lark, but when i have the time i will try to put more music up. Signs of the rust are evident in the mix on this song. A little dull in places. I believe it needs some brightening. Ah well. Please share your thoughts and opinions, constructive criticism is the order of the day.




Nice, simple and smooth. Not exactly my cup of tea but it definetly has a lot of potential. Almost sounds like it has a country twist to it as well. I don't know about adding this or that because I just listen and can't make music to save my life. I can see this song however on the opening of a good show or a small independent film. Definetly has that movie soundtrack feel. But again what do I know. I like it because again you can feel something. Keep working on it and see where your inspiration takes you.

Thanks for the review man. Yea i had an inkling this wouldn't quite be your thing, whereas spiritually it is mine, jingle jangle guitars and a mancunian vibe. I did afterall learn guitar before my forays into production. There no harm in getting a demo of fruityloops my friend and some free vsts and having a bash, it is actually quite similar to film, well the production aspect is anyways. hmmmm movie soundtrack, nice. Thanks for the kind words and review once again.


cool stuff

liked it a lot, I certainly could add some vox to this, I'll have play with it and see if I come up with anything good:)
Reminds me of New order/lightning seeds, with a modern front, the little vox sounds swirling in and out are brilliant.
Good stuff man.

pitbulljones responds:

Glad you liked it man, I'll take those comparisions ta mate, new order are pure legends in my eyes. Haha the vox is me just harmonising a bit, some delay and verb and reverse treatment. If you lay some vocals down i'd love it. thanks for the review.



Hello Pitters. I don't mind lending my ear a bit.

I really like how this one sounds. Sometimes simplicity is nice. Good use of tremolo effect on the main guitar. The reverse guitar, I think makes the song. Really nice job with it. The percussion is good and varies nice, but I think you should turn the reverb down some. The sound is too drown out, I think.

The only other thing that could make this song better is some killer vocals. Try it sometime ;)

pitbulljones responds:

Thanks for the review man. I'm always happy when i use my guitars to make music, tend to have a total different sound compared to the synth work. Yea that reversed guitar does work a treat on this track, It's all one take of me playing lead but ive just cut it in parts and it worked out for the best. ezdrummer for the drums. my lifesaver, i actually now have the drums to back up the sound.

Indeed mate it needs vocals, im trying to get someone to do em as I speak. I can only sing fleetingly in tune so i aint doing it haha

All I can say is.....

All I can say is......fucking fantastic my friend.

I honestly can't think of anything wrong with this track, The mixing is great, the drums are great, the tune is great.....nothing negative I can see at all. I know that's not much help, but seriously, I don't think you could do anymore to this track at all.

Well done my friend

pitbulljones responds:

awwwwww thanks man.

I think the track is a bit muddy meself, me harmonys are too drowned but hey everyone else seems to thinks its on. It needs mastering though and i aint too good at that yet. The drums are ezdrummer, I seriously advise you to get it. I aint a drummer i can't be arsed with drums fucking leave it to that i tell thee. haha well a review is better than no review at all glad you enjoyed it and thanks again.



This reminded me of early New Order just after Ian killed himself.
Love this.
Keep this up. :D

pitbulljones responds:

thank you for the review. Yes it does have a new order vibe, it's in me genes being a mancunian and all. though it wasn't intentional at all, just that pick at the beginning and i work around that. You should watch control if you like new order and stuff, the actor who plays curtis is phenomenal.
