A friend recently noticed that I had this song in my set list.
He asked if I had a video of it as he wanted to see how I played it.
So here it is. Todays project, Rikki Don’t Lose That Number by Steely Dan.
It’s a great song I reckon and I love playing it.
All feedback welcome as always.
Sounding great Ron. Nice playing and singing.
I never knew it was a Steely Dan song. You learn something new every day.
Right On Ron @RonG
Great playing and singing man.
I love your little riffs ya play throughout the song. Very tasteful.
I agree with you
It is a great song. A song that stays in your mind after ya hear it.
And you didn’t miss a beat playing it.
Very enjoyable to listen too.
Ya got your mix down perfect too.
Very nice set up ya got there to make for a great performance!
Thanks for sharing.
Great rendition, Ron!
Like that song a lot and you definitely did it justice. Great playing, you seemed to be so relaxed and smooth, adding in some picked Riffs between strumming at ease. Singing was top notch, too. For my taste, a little less use of the vocal harmonics would be in favour, i.e. for chorus only, you have a lovely singing voice on its own that can shine without the tool. But that’s only personal taste and therefore it remains an overall great performance.
Very enjoyable listen! Thanks for sharing, I’m already looking forward to the next one.
Cheers - Lisa
Oh wow! I’m such a fan! Awesome studio you have there!
Fantastic, loved it. TY.
It’s funny how sometimes we don’t associate a song with the original band.
Thank you for the encouragement Stefan.
Thank you so much Jim. I really appreciate the kind remarks.
Lisa thank so much. It is a great song and I really appreciate the feedback.
I think after listening a few times I agree with you on the vocals. I will cut it back a tad next time.
Pamela thank you. My studio is still a work in progress but I am comfortable with it at the moment. It is nice to have one fan
I am so pleased you loved it Rachel.
Thank you for the feedback.
Nicely done Ron,
I took it in and enjoyed it all. Everything set well in the mix…
Good job and be well!
Very cool Ron.
The sounds is really good. Well done.
Sounds really good! I was flicking through your videos and I have quite a few of the songs in my “repertoire”
I put quotes round it because I only ever play threee or four at a time at open mics usually!
Great stuff Ron, I’ll will definitely be having a go at this👍
Enjoyable performance Ron. You make great use of the technology, enhancing the performance without going over the top.
Mix is subjective and I see most happy. I think I’d have preferred the percussion down a little and the vocal up a little. When I say ‘little’ I mean subtle adjustments, rather than calling the mix as being out of balance.
How big are those speakers?!!
Top job on the vocal. The fx work really well.
Playing and production is really good.
Another class production.
Steely Dan are awesome and you do this song real justice.
If I was going to be really picky, I’d say the drums sounded a bit too ‘reverby’ for my taste, but most folk here know I have very questionable taste
Thanks so much LB
Thank you Sebastian I appreciate your feedback.
It is a great song to learn.
All the best in adding it to your list.
