I didn’t have very much hope for this one as I was working on it, but now that it’s done I kinda like it. It’s not a hit by any stretch, but it’s kinda fun to play and not so bad to listen to (in my uber biased and 100% non-objective opinion). Two things. The little two bar bridge at the end of the second guitar solo had to be changed because I played it totally wrong when I was tracking the rhythm guitar and I just didn’t have it in me to go back and play it again. The compromise was to change the bass part (which is just MIDI, not a real bass) to match the incorrect guitar. Second, if you listen close to the rhythm guitar there is a moment when I pushed the low E string off of the neck. It’s a little flub that only lasts a brief instance, but it’s there.

The guitars are all Gibson Les Paul Custom and the amps are all Fender Bassbreaker 15 and Vox AC15. The pedals for the rhyhtm parts are a Klon KTR into a Keeley Super Phat Mod. The lead is the Klon into a Malaise Forever Black Lives Matter and a Donner Yellow Fall.

B - E
I gaze upon the sky and try to think it through
the question puzzles me I don’t know what to do

C - F - K
I think on how to proceed I can’t work it out
If only I knew what the fuss was all about

D - L
I know I could find a way
through all the chaos
someone’s gonna have to pay
whoever they are

Lock it down
shut me In
its the thing to do
look around
take the win
see it through
