Nice layers on this.  Fading bends.  Good sound too with some drive and chorus and effects blends.

Beautiful tune!

One of my favorite things to is anthemic sounding music – it’s uplifting…inspiring…I closed my eyes and could imagine your tune as a soundtrack in a movie like Rocky – there’s the training period and making breakthroughs with a couple of crescendos…I mentioned earlier it reminded a little of Gogo Penguin and Hidden Orchestra – a lot of their stuff has an anthemic vibe to it. Whenever I’m in a writing sometimes I like to have instrumental stuff in the background (usually, jazz, classical, Gogo P, Hidden O – something like that – encourages mental doodling.

Again great tune – smooth work on the lead guitar – that’s the style I like the most

 

A game-show analysis of your post has yielded a candidate for Wheel of Fortune – before and after:

I'm testing out my new studio setup...you guys are not guinea pigs....but if u were you would be God's best guinea pigs 

New     Guinea

          Pigs

 

Could refer to the police force on the world’s second largest island. I know the chief of police Hiri Motu LoShonta – he and I go way, way back – to the back of the line at the DMV.

 

The Wheel’s gonna get yah!

"Thanks for the feedback" Jimi used to say that all the time - he talked to his amps. :biglaugh:

btw - my very first concert was Jimi Hendrix, at the Singer Bowl -1968 in Queens, NY - and on the bill was Soft Machine, Chambers Brothers and Janis Joplin...I still remember when Jimi came out, he kept fussing with his guitar - he says something to the MC - the MC steps to the mic and says something like "Jimi says he's sorry for the delay - but said he'll make it up to you in spades." and he sure did - end of show he rammed his guitar into his amp - roadies were on the back side bracing the stack of amps as Jimi charged them

Hey - I was wondering if "Dream" was the working title - since I noticed that on the MP3 I downloaded.

If you're still taking input, I thought a good title for it would be Old Skool's Anthem

Sounds like a plan! Will do...always taking input...on everything.

Crazy-awesome…atmospheric…listened to it a few times…great mix…liquified metal licks on geetarr !!!! and I dig that song title  :rolleyes:  

That would work as a soundtrack in a sci-fi movie

the scene:    shuttle craft Cтару Wколу arriving off-world…slowly descending out of the thick troposphere, the interactive planet Alte Schule comes to life with dangly leads of fretted flora and fauna (movie trivia: props and animatronics pilfered from the studio backlot that brought you the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series...and certain animatronics borrowed from a local Chuck E. Cheese). As the landing gear of the Cтару Wколу came down, captain παλιό σχολείο announced over the intergalactic Yama-Hammer PA system “well gang, we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

~ ~ ~ ~

More movie trivia: repeated the name “old school” in 3 different languages. shuttle craft Cтару Wколу is Ukrainian for old school; the interactive planet Alte Schule is German for old school; captain παλιό σχολείο is Greek for old school.

Thanks...when considering song titles I became frustrated reaing around the record jacket. I then took my 3000 record collection to the city dump....afterwards I checked into a hotel eating nothing but a diet of grapes and BAM! It occured to me...crazy...no?  :jump:

Thanks! That new strat is my baby. I didn't have to do much at all when it was delivered. Truss rod adjustment and raise the pickups a little. It plays freaking great. Action is awesome...and with the H S H pickup configuration I can get all those tasty blues tones that SRV, John Mayer, etc, use and that we have all come to love. Heres a pic of it...guitar porn...lol...j/k.
