Description
As a rhythm and bass guitarist,I enjoy weaving strum patterns in to a back beat, or a good syncopated riff...I played this on the guitar first to a click track,then added the drums...Next I killed the original guitar track and replayed it to the back beat,,,The bass came next and then the dirty guitar.,,,

This is one that I have to listen to twiced with fresh ears before my right brain catches up...........Hope yall enjoy.

lots to keep the ears interested
excellent main riff in this. it stuck with me all through the solo until it came back. Thats a good sign i'd say.. brain wanted it back!

alax
thanx for sticking with it..I felt that those sweet maj7 chords would ease the tension but it's still not the easiest thing to listen to.

Good energy, I like the strumming pattern. Try some eq sculpting so that acoustic & electric aren't fighting for the same space. Some reverb will help the mix too.

Guitar interplay..
The interplay between the guitars held my interest well and I like the strumming patterns you used. Agree with others re trying to pan things out a little bit (but not too much) and trying a bit of reverb (again not too much - it is easy to get carried away with it). Interesting to see if someone can come up with some lyrics/melody for it. Regards, Peter.

Twice With Fresh Ears
and it still sounds really cool!

Man, this is some sophisticated timing. As a bass player, I am thrilled to hear the guitar parts bouncing all over the place while the bass anchors this down. I don't know how, but it works!

I'm impressed!
