    Very cool track. I've been busy lately and haven't had a chance to do any takes for a few months. I'm hoping to get one in this month, and check out everybody else's. I see the forum has a new look, and I'm glad to see the "Like" button is back. Looking forward to this months submissions, this should be good.

    Even if it is 'a mess' it sounds real cool. What delay pedal did you use?

    Creative stuff SCT and Dot...tidy as always! There's a lot of room to do different things over that long Dm chord.
    Track makes me think of Billy Idol !

    Thanks Jeff. It was actually just a wall of effects from Ableton Lite (DAW).

    That sounds great. I want to get a pedal so I can record off of my AC15.

    Yeah, I've been thinking about getting a few pedals as well (I actually have a Bling fuzz on the way). Both of my takes were recorded from a mic'd tube amp with on board reverb. The remainder of the effects came from the software in post-processing.

    As an aside, I really like this track. I don't really play this type of music, concentrating mostly on the blues and melodic soloing. Gives my brain a workout. :jam:

    What scale are you guys using? I think this track is actually in Gm, and not Dm. Someone can correct if I'm wrong.

    I played in Dm and Dm pentatonic. All of the notes in Gm pentatonic first position are in the Dm scale, so there's plenty of wiggle room and overlap. The roots are definitely D though.

    Your right Dot, I actually looked it up after I posted. I haven't tried playing over it yet, but it appears to be a pretty good open canvas.

    Such a cool track. I am on a vacation without my guitar for one more week. Looking forward to jamming to that track.

    Awesome backing tune, like always!
