i havent heard this song by creedence, but it sounds great, is this just you and one guitar? i'd say the gain and distortion were too loud, it sounded like a second guitar in there a bit doing the higher pitched stuff but i couldnt be too sure because the distortion was a bit heavy.

I put this on my ipod, played back great
It also plays back through my mac with headphones plugged in. Like the tone on guitar that is nice gritty tone. I like the way the vocals stand out also.

Sounded good to me, I wouldn't tweak it much more as you may then ruin the feel of the song.

good work.

only complaint i have is your guitar tone, otherwise extremely good, nice vocal work and all that jazz.. very very catchy! Edit: did you play and sing at the same time?

Not exactly my type of music but It seemed very clean and nicely arranged. No faults anywhere that i noticed. Keep it up man.

I liked it a lot, you have good pitch. I think if you were going to play it just yourself without a full band it would sound better acoustic but thats just my opinion.
#11
The vocals are great, really good all in all. I agree with evansut7, if it's just going to be one guy I'd try an acoustic version.
#12
Thanks. It is going to be played with a full band once I can get them all to show up for practice at the same time!!!!

Hey man. I really liked it. Your singing (voice, timing ect.) is very good and you have also a nice voice. guitar play is also very good. but for me it sound not very difficult too play even if I don`t know the song. so keep your work up.

Thanks for the crit...

That's really good! Your vocals sound great with the lyrics and I personally really like the guitar tone on this. I think you'd need something else if you were to add other instruments to the mix, but as a guitar only mix it fits well in my opinion.

A bit of hammond organ and a brush kit would make that track perfect

Really, really sweet. I hope you will try writtin' some stuff by yourself, because you got a nice "rock" voice.

by the way, what did you use when you recorded this?

I like it a lot. I particularly love the tone. Vocals are great, too. What settings did you use? It sounds like the gain is ed on the clean channel.
Listen to mah discs.

Sounds good. our voice reminds me a lot of Mike Cooley from the Drive By Truckers.. and that CCR song is very similar to Cottonseed from The Dirty South album.. so that could be it too. The guitar might have been a touch overdriven.. but the distorted idea is cool evern for a one guitar one voice arrangment of the song like that.

Nice to hear you singing. Tell those other queers in your band to get practcing.. we need to seea gig soon!

excellent!
