A heavy guitar piece concocted with Garageband2, Crystal software synth for bass line, Edirol Midi keyboard for guitar and some Zero-G guitar loops. A new style for me - comments requested.

Funk Yeah. Smacked out.
Funkin A it is nice. Cool guitars all the way around,
great arrangement. Nice balance of tones and
texture. Phenomenal dynamics and easy on the ears
mix. It's one of the most exciting tunes I've heard so
far. Excellent job oldlibmike. Original with a familiar


Thanks. I'll be listening to this little crack nugget

This was a happy medium piece between my 'looping' and
non-looping I think. I will probably combine more in
future pieces. Its hard to get good guitar without out and
out playing it though! Electronica is easy - simulation
much much harder.

You think? I gotta say it depends on the material. It's easy to make a
'photocopy' it's tough to draw a picture. (if you dig)

This song was an example of a great illustration or more appropriatly a
mosiac of sounds. You could simulate this i guess, sure...but it wasn't
there before you applied yourself to the 'lifeless pile' of sounds you had
in your loop window.

I've offered my opinion of loops often...i just think loop users have to
march to a beat of a different drummer (loop). If you don't believe a
song can be great or 'great enough' with loops, it just never will be.

You got to have put aside your fears of looping to make a rich groove
like this. ya?

I would also like to ad that if you look at alot of 'succesful' mainstream
albums made by PRODUCER MUTT LANG (back in black, pyromania,
slippery when wet, etc.) you basically have a final product of strenuous
sessions of 'loop' building done by artists under his supervision. They
are arduosly built into a cohesive concrete product that takes the raw
material over the top via the final arrangement of these performances by
one man (LANG). Isn't this the same thing (on pro-platinum scale), as
amateurs with GB making a sincere effort to pull loops into that little
wood framed window in a way that will rock your soul? Nah. It just loops.
That's all it will ever be. LOL!

(BTW Lang's legend is that he works alone, is rarely ever seen, and is
known for treating musicans like raw machinery for HIS 'hits' (Sounds
like a mac jams looper?). Check this guy out....he's a legend and every
album he's touched has gone platinum or at the minimum gold (but I've
never known a gold album of his). He's just loopin'.

You gonna eat that?

Very good points. I'll have to check out Lang sounds interesting! I guess my
'looping' background does carry forward. When I do play parts by hand, I tend
to chop them up, fix them with the pencil and copy paste as needed - so
really my played parts often are looped as well in some respects. My only
performance abilities were trumpet, so I do tend to remain a studio guy - Call
me Alan Parsons :)

Cool funky geeetar tune
Like it - great mix of guitar tones, synth sounds and a
good solid groove. A lot of imagination used so that it
never becomes just a repetitive series of riffs.. and what a
great title! That hooked me in straight away

Cool funky geeetar tune
Thanks for your feedback. Not playing guitar myself I either gotta keyboard it or
find/mangle some good loop licks. I'd like to do more guitar pieces.

Glad you liked it. The bassline and echoing lead guitar are keyboard, the rest are
clipped up and reassembled loops. So its maybe 60/40 loop to keyboard overall.
