Well, What I would love to see is Member submitted progressions that we can all have a hand in completing as songs. I have been asking for this for years. No one steps up.
OK, here you go. Knock yourself out.

Halen Ballen

This is my Van Halen inspired track I've been fooling with. Just tracked bass and drums this past weekend. Not sure how good the verse will be to solo over due to the main riff. It'll get cluttered fast but have at it. Cool thing about this one is the Axe Fx did the guitar and the bass. Bass actually has two tracks. One with the Axe and the other direct and using plugins.

It's in E

Orion's Run

Frank you've played with this one already. It's been updated with real drums and a new bass track. I've had this one knocking around for a couple of years now. Finally got around to actually tracking it. I've you ever seen the movie Heavy Metal, it reminds me of the space scene. I've toyed with adding vocals but haven't settled on anything.

It's in D

Here's my take with lead:

Have fun!

I think I enable download for all of them. I’ll double check.

One thing I’ve noticed with sound cloud is it does something really odd to the cymbals. I think it’s the compression it uses.

I'm not familiar with this. Is it a music hosting site or like Drop Box?

Thanks! I've got several more I've written recently I'll post. Some are in various stages of writing lyrics.

I'll have to post the versions without the leads lines when I get home.

Unbound: If you want to get modal, Lydian works on this

Ode to Slash: Very GNRish. Basically Nightrain was the inspiration for this. It's in A. The lead line doesn't come until the bridge so you can fool around with it until I get the other version loaded.

I'm going to have to looking into Frank's suggestion on box.com. The swirling sound Soundcloud is putting on the cymbals is killing me.

BTW, to keep this relevant to the thread.

The guitars on both Ode to Slash and Unbound were recorded using an ADA MP-1>Sonic Maximizer>G-Major>Two Notes Torpedo Live. I think I used a couple different cab impulses for each.
