John Option: lifestyle obsession

today we have published the video of another single of John Option:
Lifestyle obsession.

great free audio software that we used under Debian GNU/Linux.

Best regards,


I’m glad to see that there are also other people trying to do old school rock and roll besides me :slight_smile:

I think the part that starts the song is absolute gold and I love it :slight_smile: The simple but effective guitar + bass rhythm combined with how the rhythmics from the singers voice dances around it is absolutely fabulous. Really great work :slight_smile:

I like how you pulled the bass to the front of the mix and let the guitar come more from behind it, its sound bouncing of the walls more. This makes the bass and guitar sounds merge into one very solid and pleasant block of sound.

The third part of the song with the harmonica feels a bit out of place, you could have perhaps replaced it with the fast part from the end of the song. But hey 7 billion people 7 billion opinions :slight_smile:

Anyway great work and please keep writing more songs :slight_smile:
