Thanks, man! I have to work on it (them really) almost constantly just to try to keep it up to "ok"! it's interesting, we played 9 tunes (out of 22) that had at least some shuffle section to them, and these two are kind of outliers - on most of the rest I play some kind of double shuffle as the main groove, but on Stack o Lee the record doesn't have a shuffled snare, so I don't do it (the record DOES have a partially shuffled bass drum, but I also don't do that, cause I can't pull that off while singing). If somebody else was singing "Next Time You See" I'd probably double shuffle it, but getting rid of the doubled snare, and then peppering it in during solos makes it a lot smoother while singing.You got a nice shuffle on you!
Thanks buddy, this project has been very slow coming together and is a major labor of love for me and the lead guitar player (well they both play solos, but the guy with the tele). It's basically what we think our old band should have evolved into if our front-man hadn't wanted to coast and just do stuff he was already comfy with.Smooth Bro, bands gotten really good , quality balanced recording. Drums & vocals top notch.
