Description
Simple “Led Steppelin” style tune hopefully a meaty and super easy bed to solo over if your a guitarist (or otherwise)

Trivia: “Gruvor” (pronounced “Groove-or” is Swedish for “Mines”. The artwork is: “The Key of Solomon”. The “Rastafari” is from thinking: “Solo-mon” and a title still not out of place on my current “Gold zombie” selection.



Key: E Major (I’m fairly sure :))
BPM: 140
Track total: 10 :
(1 Drum - “Studio Heavy Kit” midi played with Roland TD-9
2 Percussion - 1 yellow tambourine, 1 rice in 1.5L plastic bottle shaker
3 bass: Line 6 amp modelling layered mix of adjusted presets (“Power pop”, “Blacklisted”,
“Fuzzy synth”)
3 guitar: Line 6 amp modelling layered mix of ..eh.. I’ve forgotten.
1 FX/sample: “Rastafari” (free from CM magazine).

You gotta love go-go dancer's mini skirts... And this track, as well. Super solid sonic scene for someone to skate over. Regards, Peter.
