Just recovered this elderly little blues of mine and took some time to remaster it. I played all the instruments by myself (Guitars, upright bass, blues harp and finger snipping). It´s a few years old already and unfortunately my guitar compressor was broken during the recording producing a constand´t white noise in the background. I tried to get rid of it with a gate but it did not work very well. But well, a blues has to sound a bit dirty doesn´t it ;)


I have to say personally, I love every bit of this. from the harmonica and the bass, it all just meshes together so lovely.

As a fellow double bassist, I really appreciate the live instruments you have here! This is a really cool piece, and you've got some neat things going on.

What I liked:
-The grungy texture is really great, and it captures that old dive bar kind of feel.
-Love the blues harp!
-The overall impression this gives is nice - very cool.

What could have been better:
-While the finger snaps are nice, I would really love to see some percussion in this, but I understand there can be limitations as far as instrumentation goes.
-You really should set this up as a loop instead of fading it out, I could see this working really well for some games.
-I get that this is the blues, but it is a bit repetitive. As a stand alone piece, it needs something else to give it a little more diversity.

This is a really great piece overall! I really like what you did here. I'd love to see you take these elements and craft them further. Take the style and run with it!
