I wrote and recorded this for a contest a couple of years ago. I used Garage Band to do this final mix. I find that GB is very useful for this and it's quite easy. I am playing guitars and bass here. I programmed the drums on an old Yamaha RY-30. I hope you like it and thanks for your comments!

Enjoy,
Ed Nicholson

Am I related? I am proud to be Paul's brother! He is truly one of the most gifted minds on the planet. Have you seen "The Black Box"? My personal favorite.

Thanks for listening. I'll say hey to Paul for ya.

Thanks, jkane.

I remember telling some friends at the time I did this that this was as fast and clean as I could possibly play. I'm not hung up on playing fast or clean, but this was for a guitar contest (I didn't win) and I wanted my technique to be as speedy as I could get it. If I were to do it over again, I might try something different with an acoustic section mixed in. I had fun doing it and that's the bottom line.

Thanks for listening,
Ed

Good feel on the guitar, and not bad on the drum machine too! I have an old Alesis SR-16 and a Roland R5 Human Rhythm Composer that haven't seen the light of day since I got GarageBand, but I want to get my drum machines and a couple of old synths hooked up eventually.

Nice to hear more original music!

Neumuzik,

Thanks for the kind words.

The drums took forever to program as I'm not a drummer. Programming a machine is pure drudgery for me. I am sooo glad to have the ease of use that drum loops provide.

"Programming a machine is pure drudgery for me."

Tell me about it! Coming from a background of playing real drums, I've never considered drum machines ideal solutions.

Cheers.

Hi, this song reminds me to Mike Post's Rockford or Magnum.

Smooth and virtuous... as in virtuosity, since I don't you well enough to go off on yoru virtues. Nostalgia is in these grooves for me. Not all instrumentals can hold the attention like this. Very crisp. And again, those chops ... there's a feeling of art to match the technical expertise here.

Wow, this brought back incredible memories of the 80s for me, cruising, jamming out to great rock bands, dreaming of being a star... great work and excellent guitar playing. Of course, the drums are a bit thin, but "period-correct," if you catch my drift. Ending is a bit abrupt.

Great tone on your lead guitar. Do you record direct in or mike?

Can't believe I haven't heard you sooner.

Peace,

"Virtuosity" is exactly the right word to describe your playing. Frenetic, fast and spiffy. (gawd, where did I get that word, sorry)
