I've had this bouncing around my head since about 1987. Using my Boss GT-001 I just can't seem to master the dirt, but well, here it is.

Thanks Ken. I have such a difficult time finding, deciding on, playing and mixing high gain guitar stuff. I think much is performance, as in I'm not interacting with the guitar/amp/setting well. I think I may be physically digging in to the guitar too much and producing unwanted pitch and tone issues.

Can't play the track. Says it's "private".

Hmmm, that's weird. I did set the track as private but have had no issues doing this in the past.<br /> <br /> I posted the track on my Facebook wall and a number of friends commented on it (I assume they actually listened to it, lol).

Now that was one of the best compositions I've heard on an internet forum. Ever. <br /> <br /> Glad I tried again.<br /> <br /> We want more!

Thanks guys! Yeah, middle section was a second and much later idea I rolled in. Probably conceived around the time I got "Return Of The Hellecasters". :-)<br /> <br /> Thanks for listening.

Music is your only friend....

Interesting. It sounds like two songs. I like the second one best: from about 3 minutes to 5 minutes.<br /> It could be a soundtrack of a movie about a couple of hyper-active people, and with an uncertain ending. It has some good moves, IMO.<br /> <br /> Come to think of it, that's a good title for it.<br /> <br />

It's two tunes, both good on their own merit. I say finish 'em both up.<br /> <br /> It's very clever regardless, and the grooves transition well but they aren't the same. You could put some aggressive stops in the main tune instead of the jazzy breakdown.<br /> <br /> And for the jazzy tune write an intro, just expand it a little bit, you'll easily have two tunes in the 3:30 range.

Thanks again, folks, much appreciated. Ty, yes by all right it should be 2 different songs. I've tried to "finish" both as compositions and never really got anywhere. I realized that both worked well at 185bpm and decided to merge them together. <br /> <br /> The great thing about Pro Tools/digital recording. Nothing has to be final/set in stone. For now I'm glad to have this one out of my head.

Nice work.<br /> I appreciate the economical use of the talent bar.<br /> In the call and answer parts...the answer seems a bit proud. Perhaps it's a bit thick.<br /> I like the mods. The transition of the first mod seems a bit abrupt....perhaps a drum pickup to get the point across would make it less abrupt.<br /> <br /> Good tone and good playing.<br /> <br /> Don't forget that I'm just an old dog living in the northern boonies. My opinions aren't offered as criticism.<br /> <br /> cheers<br /> <br />

PS<br /> Duck a little 500 on the hat and lift the brass maybe one or one point five dB.

I think,<br /> Intrumentals are hard to pull off,as such, in most cases. They can be boring if not thought out and well planned. I dug the riffin' from the git go and thought the first modulation was spot on, fresh, very smart. You dug in more with your chops beyond that, razing the energy, ante, so to speak. I liked that. (Billy Gibbons always takes two solo's in every thing zz top does. The second solo is always hotter than the first. It a formular that works.)<br /> The departures from the obvious were very cool. Clean jazzy tones, hi-hat, tempo shifts all adding another idea to the whole. I do not see this as two seperate tunes at all. A composition that moves, goes places, yeah...<br /> It's one of the best offerings posted here to date. The best is probably one of your other tunes. ;-)

Thanks Roly and Rockit! Roly, I'm not an immense Blackmore fan but gotta admit the tempo/groove of the main body had me thinking of "Lazy". The triplet pulloffs leading out of the first "solo" in particular. <br /> <br /> Thanks in particular for the eq recommendations, Roly. I know you spend a lot of time behind the console so I look forward to trying to apply your suggestions.
