Description
MERRY CHRISTMAS

This is based on the Charlie Brown music....it is designed to be listened to in the car, on the way to the mall for last minute shopping.

This song is dedicated to Magnatone...it is sort of like a guitar version of the orchestral wonders she makes....of course hers are much more musical with all the different sounds she conjures up....with me ... guitar, bass and drums....

Thanks to scott fugate for the nifty drum track! I think he did a very nice job, and the price was right!
Thanks pal for your nice contribution.

hope ya like it!

Firsties!
Cool, I can imagine myself drifting sideways into the parking lot of Toys R Us to get that last needed present for my kids. I dig the big sound and open mix that this has. Great guitars and the 2 minute mark vamp is killer. Stellar soloing throughout.

you rescued me on this...your drum track really helped me finish this! Really nice work, it fit the tune perfect with being intrusive at all...nice job of building the momentum to go along with the craziness.

Fine work, my brother!

cool drums, and the guitar is outstanding rock. This is really something! Love the way the mix is happening between my ears:)

What amazes me is you should be super famous making tons of millions of dollars and we have you hear at MJ. Amazing how that happens, but the talent is what is important and expressing it is so important and you have both is spades !

Way to go Z, crazy cool ending and the list goes on!

thanks tiler
i dont really care about being famous, but it would be nice to be able to make a living...

i love to play so much, and i feel blessed to be able to continue doing it in spite of everything that happens in the day to day. Life without the guitar is unimaginable, ist it?

Last-minute parking place...
Have been out on those roads (in the pouring rain and maniacal moms) with my daughter at the wheel, as she is just this week learning to drive (what better time and weather to learn in?) and the exhilaration of this rollickin' screamin' smokin' bit of fun reminds me a bit of relaxing in the passenger seat and watching the cars and people go whizzing by in the parking lots. Whew, go get 'em boyz! Great bunch of rambunctiousness here, Karen will love it I'm sure! I did!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Just back from rehearsal
- are you sure you don't want to join PBGB Fran? :)
Great sounds- I remember when you sent me your first tracks on our first collab (Doing The Eggshell Walk I think). I was bowled over when I got 5 tracks from you all woven together - a mixer's nightmare! Scott had it pretty easy here (great drums Scott!), but I bet there were more than 7 guitar tracks in this one.
Mind-bogglingly good Fran!
Happy Christmas from Oz!

Jeff Beck meets Vince Guaraldi....
This is a fun one, Fran....

I think this is easier for you, having a brain with 3 1/2 lobes instead of the usual two... You just hear and imagine things differently....

A great listen, and a great start to my day...

Absolutely Sick with Skill
I agree with all the other comments here. The sound is huge the creative brain producing this wickedly wonderful piece must see things differently then most and I agree you should be famous.

You post music here I sometimes file the email in my music folder for later but every time I take a moment to click on the link and listen to your creations reminds me why I Favorited you in the first place.

Please keep rocking. Absolutely worth sharing. Man you have a super-sized gift Fran and thank you for being a MJ'er so we can all hear this. Happy Holidays and again thank you, the guitar work is sweet and the drum track fits in fantastically well , nicely done Scott.

Crazy good.
Guitar god that you are, I humbly bow to your prowess and laugh at the complexity you always manage with no more than a few dance steps and tilts of head. Scott had fun, I'm sure. This is just great. Thanks, guys.

haahaha
this is really weird - i was playing this on piano last night in a hotel.I learned it during the last month - took me a while to be able to play bass and melody at the same time,but its a really happy tune indeed.I could never of imagined there was a rock version about to hit the streets.BRILLIANT! And Snoopy Rocks.I enjoyed the book where he has to go to a secret place covered in a blanket to face the head beagle because he'd been breaking beagle rules and chasing rabbits.bit of an 80's peanuts book that one

slackandsteel said 2523 days ago (December 23rd, 2010)
Fantastic!
This has such a great feel, really like vintage Jeff Beck, shades of Freeway Jam and even Beck's Bolero. Love the harmonized lead and then breaking it down for some low down riffs. Great mix too. Love it.

Had to listen again
This time I heard some Derek and the Dominoes and Allman Brothers-ish stuff near the end too, and of course you made it all your own. I dig your influences and where you are coming from. Bad ass man.

Awesome
Damn, I wish I knew how to post a pic here. My mom actually bought a Charlie Brown tree, really, it is so pathetically adorable. It has one little red ball ornament and a few straggly branches.

This rocks man, kick a$$ playing & Scott's drum track sounds awesome!

in my bug with blazing new decals
swirling great bass lines -
and yes kind of ritchie blackmore i.e. :chosen
note sure-fingered-guitar solo -
think yall are for real; cooking with this one;
guitar's harmonious riff lines really deliver -
jan ackerman-like guitar 2 -
which is one of my real favorites -
of course it is all very original style-wise
but I am also thinking of rick deringer
- takes the simplicity if charlie and re-paints it - adding the blazing new decals.

Hands down
Best collab of the year. Perhaps I'm a wee bit biased (I adore the peanuts....crocheted a Charlie Brown blanket once....took me three months.) Ziti: I'm speechless. Scott: Knocked this one out of the park.

Thanks for the dl

Well...
... my first thought when I started listening was not of Charlie Brown music, but then I recognized the CB theme, so now it makes sense! This is just fantastic... the guitars, the drums, the whole production. Very creative use of a familiar theme in a new and original way. Awesome!
