Thanks
I wanted to spend more time on the guitar part. It sounds pretty sloppy to me, but that's because I know what I meant to play, but settled for what came out. Thanks for the comments. I always appreciate your comments.

Very good entry
esp considering how quickly you have put this together. Love some of the sounds and this is really well composed. Sounds like it should be a soundtrack to a James Bond film. Nice one, very impressed.

funny you should say that
My wife always tells me my true calling is to write music for film. I'd love to have the opportunity some day, but ... time will tell. Thanks.

guitar thing is cool, good bass line as well.

Nice result for a couple hours of work - (!) I suppose I spent WAY too much time on mine...

screaming
There are really two areas I had cut back because of time. The first was in playing parts or editing until I got them the way I really wanted. The second was mixing. Mixing, for me, is very time consuming. I have such a hard time ending up with a mix that plays well with different kinds of speakers/headphones, etc. I let this one go and it is just crushed in some places. I played it back on my mac laptop and all you hear is the guitar. In my studio it sounded quite a bit more balanced.

Thanks for the comment.

Great Guitar
But the backing is really terrific too. It has a feeling of a piece that would be used in a movie for a driving scene or an interlude piece as the scene transitions. Very nice.

Logic is so great at workflow
I've been using logic since before Apple bought it. I really love the workflow. Also, my wife happened to be a little pissed at me last night (of course, through no fault of my own).. That always inspires me to get loud and play hard..

the talking guitar
strikes again. Love what you did here, especially considering the time frame in which you did it.

You about beat that loop to death by hitting it over the head with your guitar. Very cool entry in LIOLI9. Just excellent.

Talking guitar
One of my favorite musicians is Adrian Belew. He is a master at the whammy bar and making the strangest sounds come out of his guitar. I have a guitar with really good action and a great whammy bar, but I rarely use it. I thought I'd try it out for this one. I wish I would have had more time to play with it. I'll try using the technique again in another piece.

Thanks

Andy!
You inspired me to do this. I heard your submission (Asleep Last Night) and I really liked it. I hadn't heard about LIOLI before and I wanted to put something together to submit. I can do subtle and melodic, but only when I have time to do it right. The most natural thing to me is big, loud and forceful (... the guitar player in me...).

Wow! Powerful sounds
It's a good thing you DIDN'T take a longer run at this. I don't think any of the other entries attacked this quite so forcefully. Great guitar playing and super drums. Thanks.

The big hammer
I have a philosophy that usually works for me. If you don't have time to do it right, get out the big hammer, hit it hard and hope for the best. Doesn't usually work for electronics repair, but does ok with music sometimes.

Thanks.

Wow!
I love how this kicks into gear approaching the 1 minute mark. Impressive, Steve--even more so since you did it so quickly.

Steve you make smart music... I'm not surprised... but what I really like about your work is that you don't circumvent the heart... it doesn't mater how smart music is, if there's no heart it will have little or no impact...

this is a TEAR...

Groovy!
Another hour would have benefited the mix, but the raw energy of this track is worth something too.

Utterly Unexpected
Very dramatic, those stinging guitars are deadly sure of themselves, precise as scalpels and just as sharp. Love how the strings compliment the melody lines, all three elements work perfectly together. Excellent work. Utterly genius, demented insane take over the world and rule genius.

Looped
This is a great post - love the progressive feel to this. Loved the theme/bass/keyboard riff you came up with that complements the loop - how did you arrive at that? It is very catchy.

Variations on a theme
I didn't have much time to give this much thought. It was only a few hours from start to finish using Logic and a few trusted plugins. The first time I heard the loop I heard it on a kalimba in my head. The rest evolved naturally. I'm sorry to say this, but my best stuff usually happens when I feel rushed and can't afford to devote much thought. There is a lot to be said for going with your instincts.

I'm pretty happy with it
I wish I would have spent more time on the mix. The guitar in places makes my ears bleed. However, I generally like the way it turned out. I gave myself one (relatively short) evening to come up with something for the challenge. Sometimes time constraints help.

Layers
Nice. It's not easy to play over a single loop and make the piece interesting beginning to end. You accomplished that. Nice muscular guitar work, use of doubling and tripling lines, and creating layers of thought amidst the layers of sound. I dug it.
