THAT is an impactful mix....
Definitely going to rise above the traffic noise as one cruises down the highway....

For all the squashedness, there's sizzle and life in the drums.... Sounds like the whole underpinning of the song is wah-wah-ing. What is that?

Excellent guitar playing. You know this isn't my home turf musically, but I can hear the quality in how you're phrasing....

Thanks Ed
Sometimes I'm not sure this is my turf either, it just comes out this way, unplanned. The wah, which I forgot to list, is just a percussive stumming that I timed to a manual Dunlop wah, simply as that.

Z, I don't know what you had for breakfast, but I want some. Raw, unadulterated power. Love the drum madness. That and the pulsing rhythm wah guitar. I imagine you had to pour ice water on the console after the final mix.

Thanks John
I just love when the drums come together to actually add something to the song, even though they are still midi loops they seem to work for me.

all systems go
what's not to like. and the big question on everyones mind... what is that twisted wah thingy? pretty unigue sound. great in your face leads.

Thanks Vic
I didn't mean to keep it a secret. The opening wah is just a one note Bb with a little harmonic from the E string ringing through. The other pulsing is a Bb5 chord (2 notes). Real complicated stuff.

Excellent! What a fun listen. Love the leads, and the melodies. Of course, the "wah" guitar was great too. :)

Overloaded
I knew this was going to be a wild ride after the first two seconds of that guitar. Good to see that your drummer is back in top form. Whew! I like the wah on the rhythm guitar. I always like your unconventional non-pentatonic solos on these kind of tunes. Very tasteful, yet gutsy. Great.

Now that I've got that out of my system it's time to get back to... I'm not sure but I need a change.

Splendid Use of Power
The material here is working very hard, the solo section sparkles. I am really glad to have found your music at MJ. The level of commitment to music necessary to wield these components stands out.
