    I performed this with my bandmate ... we wrote it together over a few video texts and then just traded parts by email (only the drums are loops) until we had the whole thing. It was fun, and yes, there's a Telecaster in there somewhere, lol. It ended up sounding like a bad movie soundtrack for some reason, I hope you don't hate it.

    Constructive criticism:

    I like the overall rhythm of the track, but the rhythm and lead parts were too similar, and were played (or mixed) at similar volume levels, making it difficult to distinguish one from the other. IOW, there was no tension between the rhythm and lead parts.

    My $.02.

    I like it! It kind of burbles like a gumbo cooking outdoors... different little parts popping up.. very cool!

    I agree with you. The more I listen to it, the less I like it, lol. But if you pair it with wacky cult movie video on Facebook (who would do such a thing?), it becomes more palatable. The other issue was that some of the parts are slightly off time, which happened when we were trying to assemble it like a jigsaw puzzle via email, not the greatest modus operandi.

    Hey, I give you credit for trying, StoogeSurfer. It's difficult enough when you're sitting in the same room together!

    Kudos for having the patience and the desire to try! ;)

    Wait a minute!....I heard this in some "Blaxploitation" film in 1969......I remember, the black anti-hero was cruisin' the streets of LA looking for his ex-old-lady who had been lured into prostitution by the evil chief of police......and yes, there was an ultimate slow motion blood-bath gunfight right at the end. I think the hero got a little scuff on his shoe before it was all over.;)

    That is was what I thought it invoked too. The masterpieces of the early 70s. Too campy, even for me, so I settled on this, though the camp factor is quite high anyway. Well, it is summer.

    For writing it, first we traded video texts. I played him the first part, he added the 'chorus,' etc. For the sound files, initially I was sending him wav files over wetransfer.com (free file sharing), but then I just start sending him aiff's, which are small enough to email (under 50mb).
