Psycho Guitar

Just some silly playing around with a few RTs and effects - nothing too serious. I put this together one afternoon about 3 or 4 weeks ago. It's only 2:34 in length. Di was napping and I had a little time for music. It's no big thing ... just some fun time for me. I made a few track substitutions from the original style. And, obviously, I added a few affects ... mostly echo/delay and a slight amount of flange. As always any comments welcome.

Alan

Sounds great to me, Alan, man, that guitar is great! Nice use of FX on it.

Good instrumental, enjoyed.

BIG snare sound...nice.
I do love some wailing guitar - the FX are subtly done for the most part. Reminds me of a bluesier Santana due to the rhythm.
Nice one.

Hi Alan,

Hey, that was a good afternoon's work!

This is driving music - not country lanes but interstate, or motorway here in England.

A fabulous track and a great mix. The only thing wrong with it?
NOT LONG ENOUGH - I've got a 30 min drive to get to the coast and I want to play it all the way!

Hope you and Di are staying safe and well.
Take care my old friend.

ROG.

Effects sound good on the guitar. Awesome sound overall. I was really in to this---two and a half minutes is too short. I wanted more!

Enjoyable cross-over disco rock, which I haven't much heard, thus this sounds very original in my ears. And that guitarist, amazing - BIAB and your talent make it sound fresh and hot, for some reason this reminded me of Jason Becker. Super mix and great use of effects. Should definitely be much longer smile

Beautiful playing Al. The band aint half bad either.
Seriously, you achieved more in an afternoon, while "Di was napping", than I can in days and weeks of work/play.
Thanks for sharing, Al.
Cheers,
Mike
