    Those of you who follow the Backing track challenges may hear some style similarities to my playing.. like the dual lead guitars... lol

    I haven't done the backing track challenges recently because I've been spending my Saturday mornings working with a friend who loves to record. We've decided to record some songs I've written with this being the first one. He has all the recording gear and great production ideas. This is all for fun.

    Basically, I am playing all the guitars through a little Blackstar Fly practice amp and different fuzz pedals that we mic'd. I mainly used my blue Tele that is in my profile pic. I also played bass (thank goodness for cutting and pasting). The drums were provided by a friend of ours played to a click track. The singing is me and I wrote the lyrics... as cheesy as it may seem, the lyrics are written about my wife about when we first started dating.

    Thought I'd share with you all.

    I like it. Sounds like the stuff that was being played on rock radio as the Grunge thing was dying down and before Nu Metal. I call it the Alternative/Pop/Punk era.

    Well, the late 80s / early 90s were my musical highpoint!

    Yeah, it has that early 90's alt rock sound. I like that kind of stuff. Replacements, Bob Mould, etc.

    Good work.

    Like that song! Lot of drive, and hooky vocal lines.

    I liked it a lot, great stuff! To my ear, it reminded me of a bit of Rockpile and an equal bit Television...with maybe just a smidgen of the Only Ones....just the way I hear it( ymmv, just my opinion etc etc etc. ). I've now listened to it 6 times...more more more!!!
