    Yes, and the way You played those money notes reminds me of greek folk or something like this; it is this mixing of styles that makes Your track so interesting.

    Well here it is.

    I almost didn't get one up this month. I had a few technical issues getting the track off my recorder and onto the computer and at one stage I thought I'd lost not only this but all my other songs as well.

    I thought I'd try something a bit different this month. Instead of recording directly into the BR600 and using the onboard FX, I used the following signal chain.

    Partscaster Tele / Orange Squeezer compressor / Dunlop Cry Baby Classic / EHX Big Muff Pi / MusicMan 210-Seventy Five. Then through a crappy microphone into the BR600 recorder.

    I did this in one take, but I had heaps of dry runs to get a feel for where I wanted to go.

    I hope You are not offended if I say that Your track is like a time machine for me, sending me back to the very early seventies - long live Iron Butterfly!! Well done, Hoodie!!

    HoodieMcFoodie well done! I almost can picture you in your bell bottoms and the big hair wailing on your Partscaster Tele :p

    That's what you said last month. ;) I'll take that as meaning I'm improving :lol: Thanks

    Why would I be offended Ullich? The early 70's is my favourite time for rock. I was really trying to capture the vibe of that era. Fuzz & Wah. :cool:

    Thanks Mellen. I just wish I could wail on guitar like that when I had big hair. :lol:

    I'm looking forward to going back and listening to all your tracks.

    Of course I'm also looking forward to next month's track.

    Well I've had a chance to listen to everyone else's tracks. There's some great stuff in there.

    jjpish68 - I really liked the stratty tones and the little rhythmic twiddly bits as well as your double stops

    Mellencaster - I loved the rhythmic playing & the variety of tones you used.

    udoering - nice variation with the clean tones. I liked the pinch harmonics and also the recurring theme you had in the "chorus" section

    Mjark - Your first take was one hell of a ride. I loved it. I would love to hear what you had in store for the last third of the track. Your second take was quite different again. I can't quite put my finger on who this reminds me of, but I like it.

    eichaan - Welcome aboard. Nice take on the track. I liked the added chord stabs. Well done.

    Well, here's mine. I wish I had a better way to record this stuff. I used the guitar's built in gain and a Peavey Bandit 112 on clean with the bright switch in.

    That guitar is nasty. I bet you could sell it to Jack White!

    Sounds good to me, jbmando. I like those paralleled lines to the rhythm guitar.

    jbmando - good stuff man. I too liked the paralleled lines. You also seemed to hit your stride after you went to the neck pickup. Well done. :D

    Really good JBMando! Super lead lines and I dig that guitar. Sorry you couldn't make it yesterday, but maybe next time.

    Thanks, guys. Eichaan, I'm sorry too. I hope we can all get together sooner rather than later.

    Very cool Mellencaster. What would you call that style?
