Isn't it Mannish Boy?
You stole the name from the Muddy Waters song, Mannish Boy, though the tune is completely different. Nice job, except for the singing. Love the harmonic.
My tip for you is to detune your guitar down so you can sing the higher parts better. It sounds like your having trouble reaching some of the notes. You could also apply some effects to your voice to make is sound more like the original.
Also, the percussion is rather annoying, try using a different rhythm, one closer to the actual song.
I've never heard the song, but this sounds awesome. The soloing is great and very diverse, as in its not stuck to the pentatonic. Keep submitting more music, its great.
It's a 80's pop song that I gave more of a rock spin to.
DHT also did a techno cover of it that got pretty popular.
Too much distortion to be like clapton's version but it sounded nice and was original.
Some of the bends were off a bit and there should have been some vocals but oh well. Sounds like you've gotten faster, especially at the end.
Thx for the review, I feel that I have gotten a little better and have a better control on my soloing when I really want to. As for vocals, this was more of a jam session type thing than anything else (orginally a demo for my collab with da_pope). I have no confidence in my voice and if I were to do something with vocals I'd post it on another site and possibly ask you for an opinion, we'll just have to see what happens.
P.S. looks like my collab with da_pope is finally rolling so look foward to that.
P.S.S. Again with the bends! This time it was on purpose (Looked back at the acoustic review, ignore my responce as I found the ugly bend in the song, it's kinda hard to bend so far up the neck on mine.), I guess it's part of my style.

I like to see that your soloing outside of the pentatonic scale. Has a nice sound to it. You screwed up a little on the ending. Did you plan any of it at all or was it on the spot?
Yea I try to utilize most of the major scale and all it's connecting notes when I can. And 99% of it was just improv. Some of the repeating patterns I borrowed from other solos I've made up or learned.
The vocals need work :)
The guitar was very close but the rhythm guitar in the intro was a little off and I think was originally played on an acoustic.
The solo was pretty decent. How did you do the drums? Were they real or loops?
Yeah, I know about the vocals. I'm not a singer though, and never plan to be, so they'll have to do for the time being. XD
It probably is accoustic, but I can't record that way, here at home, so I had to use an electric all the way.
Drums were added in Cool Edit Pro 2 using samples and loops made in Accoustica Beatcraft. If you read some reviews on my other songs, you'll see that I'm trying to learn how to make drumloops at the moment, so this was sort of my first real go at it.
Its too repetitive and many parts are out of tune. Also, the distortion sounds really bad. Are you using the distortion from the wah-wah pedal?
I suggest you don't cause it creates a really ugly distortion. Get a nice distortion pedal, like the digitech metal master, its only about $50.
ya that actually was an RP300A digitech, which goes for 200, but i was really just messing around, and the volume coming into the computer was to loud, so that's why it sounded so bad
Sounds great. Has a jazz-like quality to it. Keep on writing music, its really good. Is this your work or the Go Faster Stripes?
Everything is the Go Faster Stripes
The lead guitarist did this in his spare time.
Interesting take on Clapton's Cocaine. The tempo wasn't always steady and your acoustic playing can use some work, though I shouldn't be talking :) Just a note, in the beginning, you do a bend and let it ring, but the bend is off tune a little.
Overall, nice work.
Did song in one take per part (this one I really will touch up on) The slide (not bend) wasn't out of tune it was out of key (I know that's even worse -_-), I was too lazy to edit it though. Thx for the nine and yes, I know my acoustic needs work.
That was awesome and your voice really fit in with the song. Hendrix wasn't much of a singer, and sung in his unique style. I noticed that it was in a different key, and no bell :( Let me attempt to give advice. The guitar was very close in the intro but I think he had too much bass on and it sustained a bit longer than the original intro.
You've really been busy lately, doing a lot of recording. You strucked luck when you hooked up with Mike Albert :)
Yeah This song was in a different key we did an "E" while the original was I believe in a "C". and yeah yeah I agree there was a little too much bass in the guitar. but thanks for the review.
