    As noone came up with a new track, I decided to bring in another one of my own "compositions". The recording quality is not too high, I did it quick and dirty as a pure sketch. The overall key is A minor, tempo is - if I remember correctly - 100 bpm.

    Have fun!

    I didn´t have the chance to record something, so excuse me if I do not listen to your tracks now. In fact, this track is the hardest when it comes to forget what I have played initially along it and find something new (I will post the original track later). Maybe it has to do with the intensity i dealt with that track, I even tried to write lyrics. Anyhow, I will try this weekend.

    On monday a friend will come here to make music; we had planned that for a longer time. As we have no plan which song to play (previously we recorded covers of "Thrill Is Gone" and "Dragon Attack"), I thought about using this bt, if he likes it. I guess that another player brings in quite different ideas than my own.

    I've been so busy I really had no time to make a recording .Maybe tonight.

    John - I really think is one of your most expressive playing you've done here so far. Really done well John.

    Paul - Pretty impressive for the amount time that you listen to it. Nicely played!

    John, a nice track! With that clean guitar it sounds even more like a cowboy rock piece, and your guitar sounded sometimes more like a banjo or a mandolin. I used the same tonality, but went a more rocking way.

    Paul, when I played and recorded that chord sequence the first time, I thought "That´s a Neil-Young-type thing". I love to admit that your track is much more Neil in it´s fierceness than my own, which turned out to sound like Lee Clayton. Oh that whammy bar!

    Today was first day since last Wednesday I've even thought about picking up a guitar. My wife and I both had a really nasty virus of the intestinal/stomach variety. I guess the older you get the harder they are to bear!

    I made up for lost time by adding six tracks to this very interesting track. Thanks Ullrich!

    John - First up, that never happens! I thought you did well also and had a little more definition in your tone as well.

    Paul - Your use of the whammy was spot on! Nice double stops too.

    Ullirich - Whatever effect you used one the bass break and verse later on was cool. We had similar ideas on the chorus. Thanks again for this really nice track.

    Mark, what a nice track! The opening is great as well as other parts (the scraping down the string for example), especially what you did on the chorus. Well executed multi-guitar tracks. The only thing that puzzled me was your use of e-major; never ever thought of that!

    The effect I used was a rotary effect on an effect channel, which means I could raise and lower it´s volume independently from the main guitar track (if I remember right, I also reversed phase of the effect channel).

    Thanks. I didn't really give any though to key when I did this.

    Well I had thought about opening in the low registers, but found nothing to play that sounded somehow new or creative, so I didn´t. I have to say that you found a way! That effect is really nice, and together with your palying gives the track it´s very own mood. Well done, jj!

    Update: it was not a rotary effect, but the cubase studio chorus (two chorus machines, adjusted slightly different). It was the phase reverse on the effect channel that made it sound so unique, when in phase it just sounds like a chorus.
