    I love it !
    Very creative Joe and your playing fit right in nicely .My first question, how did you conceive mixing hip hop to country chicken pickin track , that would be the last thing I would ever think to do :)
    Man!It sounded pretty cool ,well done for using your imagination

    You'll get credit for country/rap if it ever takes off...:lol:

    I think there is some kind of country rap thing. The beat worked great. As for the guitar playing this track is not the best one to start learning the genre.

    I wasn't sure if rap had broke into country yet , now I know and you got that right, I wouldn't want to start learning this genre :)

    Thank you Mike. Yes there is some type of country rap out there. The only I have ever heard was Colt Ford. I originally was looking to use Hank Williams Tear in my Beer as the vocal but could not get it to sink up. I had his whole idea of running the chorus and stutter repeating "Cryin for you Dear" and working some playing around that. I just could not make it work.

    My son was listening to Eminem and I said hey that sounds pretty close to the beat. So I grabbed it up and placed it in the track.

    Mark I read the posts of the guys here who play much better than I saying this one was tough I didn't have a shot on this one. I wish I knew someone around here that could chickin pick. I would love to learn. I have watched videos on youtube and even have two Danny Gatton videos I just cant seem to get it... This is one technique I think I need someone in front of me telling me where I am going wrong. I wish I had the time to sit with the Danny Gatton videos and learn them. He was an incredible player if I could pick up just a few pieces of his playing I would be on another planet.

    I don´t think so. In fact, I am pretty much impressed. And entertained. Of course, I didn´t understand at all what you said there - much too fast for an alien who is not used to cope with spoken english. But that didn´t really matter. I just started smiling when you started, such a stunning idea. And: your track sounded real good in the sense of recording quality. You have a decent voice, and did you really double those parts or was there some technical trick?

    I love it!

    Thank You Ullrich but that is not me. That is Eminem. I just grabbed up his vocals and put them in the mix. There was no way in the world I could play a track of style with absolutely no chops so I needed to figure out a way to make something work and still participate.

    Please no. This is the kind of thing that would be fun with real people playing live but with a recording not so much.

    My DAW is dying. Not sure how much longer I'll be participating. Grrr.

    I lost one of the two HDD's today and the boot drive is going bad too.

    So if I suddenly disappear, you guys know what happened to me. :lol:

    I plan on building a new one, but it's going to take a while.

    Shane :mad:

    Thanks Mike. Yes I will. I already got approval from my wife to replace it, but it bothers me to spend the money when, well, you heard the lyrics. LOL! :lol:

    I know it's a bit late to the party but now that I've listened to everyone's alternate tracks here's some feedback.

    February #4 (Alternate Track) Feedback

    • Ullrich - Nice. I liked that section around 2:30 and the pinch harmonics. It has a sort of 70's rock feel :cool:
    • Mike - You always slay me with your big guitar sound. I wish I could play like that. :cool:
    • Mark - That's some very nice playing right there Mark. Nice and tight. I'll echo the comments by the others that it's your best yet. Well done. :D
    • Joe - Obviously you didn't get enough metal in your diet from track #3. :lol: Some sweet whammy bar work. Great tone for that style of playing too. :cool:
    • Shane - Another great track Shane. I liked the Hendrix-esque ascending line at about 1:27 and the Doppler effect thing was pretty cool too. :D

    What a well put together recording Phil . I really enjoyed listening to all the ideas that went into it.The rhythm guitar and the lead guitar were very good together I heard a few famous riffs in that track and the Bohemian Rhapsody voice fills were cool. Well done phil!

    Thanks Phil for your comment.
