Great guitar work. Reminds me of the early Bubble Puppy (among others).

A very cool track. Played well. Recorded well.

Nice one!

PS: Cool painting too!

@brewchugger Thanks dude! I appreciate that. I can give a detailed account of how I put this together.
The night before I recorded it, I tried to come up with a song. I started writing with basic chords and I mutated them into a nervy riff. Most of the chords are pretty basic forms of D, G, A minor and then some more jazzy stuff chord wise. Once I got some kind of idea of what I was going to do with guitar I lay the main idea over some drum tracks I composed in iDrum. They are acoustic drum samples fed into the iDrum. The bass drum and snare are taken from John Bonham's drum outtakes from the In through the Outdoor Sessions. They are on some site where you can download them for free. I isolated the bass drum and snare drum sounds and edit them into wav files that I would feed into the iDrum. All other toms and cymbals were all free acoustic drum samples I have downloaded over the past couple of years. I combined the samples together and composed 10 tracks in 4/4 and then dump them into GarageBand. Then I loop a section of the drum samples and fit the guitar riff to fit the timing and feel of the drum tracks. I do it one section at a time and build up and then once I have a structure put down I add bass last. Drums composed first, add guitar ideas on top and make them fit the random drum ideas and last the bass. That's how I do most of my stuff. It's kind of stream of consciousness recording. But on this occasion I roughed out an idea the night before and recorded it in it's final form in a couple of hours with breaks in between. I mix as I record too.

The BP recorded 1 album under that name: "A gathering Of Promises" (1969), one album under the name Demain (1972?), another under the name Sirius (1979), and a couple more again as the BP. Check out their website: http://bubblepuppy.com/
