@[email protected] - Biting and aggressive. Very nice!
@telekaster1999 - The country thing plays right into the track's vibe.
@guitarsophist - Gorgeous Telefied clean tones, both pickups ;)
I have been using a different sim for clean tones. Tonelib is pretty good for bluesy crunchy stuff, but I was never quite satisfied with clean Fender Deluxe type tones. Then I found "Guitar Amp" by Tukan, which has nice Fender and AC-30 sims. It is written in JFSX, so unfortunately it only works in Reaper.

Thanks for the track, Ken! it was a fun go!
I added some synth chords at the beginning for :42 seconds and again at the same part from about 2:05-2:45.

I dig the synth chords. Nice addition!
Is that the PRS w/the 3 p-90s? Gorgeous semi dirty tones.
*I used a 3 P-90 Strat on my take. Neck and bridge together.

A plethora of jazz, blues, rock, funk and a hint of country sounds. Really enjoyed that. I like how your guitar track sets in the mix, something I've yet to figure out.
Thanks!
I'm always trying to 'sit in the mix' better.
It's not so easy when most of these BTs are already quasi-mastered.
I was able to open up the stereo field a little bit so that there was a space for my lead. I'm also learning how to use reverb and delay to set my part(s) inside as opposed to on top. Again, it's not so easy when the track is already compressed to hell and back.

Thank you, Ken, I appreciate it!!
Yes, the PRS CU22 soapy. I used #2 position for the parts where the synth came in, and the neck for the main bodies of the song. I love P90s!!
