Review Of Some Of GlennsPref's Songs:

Denim Life:
Nice warm tones. Nice and simple to listen to, but the playing is more complex than one first assumes. I can listen to this one and kick back as the story is told.

Driver:
Pretty guitar! It comes through so big and clear on this recording, but still warm. I also like the simplicity of this one. It conveys a good feeling because of this, I feel.

Drowning In My Blues:
Not my cup of tea, but I could listen to that guitar tone all day! It's really compressing nicely.

Love Has No Bounds:
Savage! But in a nice way. Cool guitar work mate, I like it!

My Girl Now:
This one didn't do much for me on first listen. But I suspect it would have some meanings to those involved. :-)

Real Pretense:
Hey, nice production mate. I don't like the style much, but it's all superb playing and production.

Reita:
I like this one, because of the lead work. It really goes somewhere that I can follow along with. Thanks!

You Babe:
Very cool! That lead guitar sounds like an acoustic with a pick up.


I can't review for shit! But great work mate.

Firstly, sorry for the typo in your name.

Secondly, thanks very much for the review.

I'm interested in what you think also of "the forest" and "sweetsunshine".

Live has no bounds was recorded when my family were on holiday and I had to work, so I took over the loungeroom. Big reverbs, and natural echo.

You Babe is all electric, double tracked rhythm gives the chorusing sound with the help of slight mic(3 of them) re-adjustment between takes. The leads were all addlib, I just kept thinking of the same mood.

It's (the recordings) rough, and was never meant to be heard.

Recorded on 4track (reel to reel) then mixed to cassette, then recorded to my pc as wav, and the exported to mp3 for the upload, in short, that's a shirt load of distortions.

but I have a few aces up my sleve, like a "monster switch" on my strat. 10 pickup combinations. The volume pot is a push/pull switch, giving the 5 way selector a whole other life. I can upload the schem if you're interested. It provides series and parallel combinations.

driver is about a stripper I drove around for a while, and my girl now is (just about) all cliche and metaphor. I really only makes sense to me.

I wrote Reita when my grandmother passed away.

"About these recordings
These recordings a pretty raw production wise, and were recorded while experimenting with different types of equipment as I aquired it. The Album "No_Edits" is the outcome of all of those recordings. While some were just 4 tracks mixed to stereo(cassette) some have more attention(like the forest)

Except for The Forest and Real Pretense, these tunes were recorded on a teac 3440a 4 track. At some stage I started using a teac/tascam series 5a mixer (I've seen some of them used as props in video clips).
It was an experimental period, where production values and musicality were fresh. Some of the overdrive is the recorder preamp, some is a non-DI'ed Guitar and some are my fender amp and effects.

The Forest used my fender amp before it was modified (how I got it) with a zoom 9002 effects unit. The bass is recorded backwards and Warren used a Marshall Stack for the bass and a Gibson Les Paul for the heavy rhythm bed.

Real Pretense was done completely on PC. This is not finished, midi tracks for backing music still suck. The music was composed by Peter Fitzgerald, he played the main rhythm guitar too. The post mod fender is used for Real Pretense and an Alesis quadraverbGT for fx."

Regards, Glenn

The Forrest reminded me of something off Hunky Dory. I think it sounds pretty good considering you had to sub mix the drums and other stuff. But it sounds great with that growly guitar chugging away in the engine room and your melodic soloing spicing things up. Great guitar work. More definition on the bass would have made it even better I reckon.

Sweet Sunshine is an amazing recording! I think it's my favorite of your soloing I've heard so far. You've managed to get a Led Zep quality to the acoustic there. It sounds fantastic and warm and in it's place. Great. Oh yeah, the song is great too! Very nice track, thanks.

Correction, The Forest was recorded and mixed and mastered at the Brisbane branch of the SAE (Tom Misner's School of Audio Engineering when I worked there.

Sweetsunshine was composed while watching Bathurst one weekend, and the guitar was tuned to an open tuning, I was practicing "Bron-Yr-Aur" from Physical Graffiti. I picked the guitar up at some stage and strummed an open A chord, and the rest is history. It's one of my favourites too.

Thanks again, I uploaded some of the schems I use. volredu and MonsterStratSwitch.

Thanks heaps. See you 'round the posts.
