    Here's one I made from a jam track the other day. The jam track is a bit cheesy so I jumped right in with the spirit of it. It reminds me of hitting on big haired girls in crowded bars serving watered down well drinks in plastic cups and dudes in Members Only jackets. :D Tele with blade bucker in the bridge > Peavey Rockmaster tube preamp > Two Notes Torpedo WoS IR's & Valhalla Supermassive plugin for delay.

    India VM 2007 modified with full size lipsticks. Yamaha EW420, Tascam 16, Washburn Bantam bass. When you see me get up in the 2nd half, you can hear me briefly do some LP congas and then my drum set, both off camera, then I come back playing the drumstics and back to the guitar.

    Just as '80s cliche as the pick slide was in the beginning is the thing I did at the very end as the song fades. I had to give it cheese bookends. That's why I called it '80s Double Cheese hahaha!

    Jerky that is killer.. Nice drums as well.. Have you tried the tal reverb plugin? There are some killer tight plates there for drums I think would give you a cool vibe on that piece.. Just a passing thought.. I love where you are going here.

    Thanks! Good call on the 'verb, I'll check that out. I get focused on trying to EQ the drums, and then I'm still not satisfied with them, then I forget other effects because I get so annoyed trying to EQ :)

    Tell me about it. That's amazing! I'm not all the way through yet because it's an epic voyage, LOL! I love how I feel like I'm drifting along and everything is as planned then at 4:40 something disconnects and there's chaos and then an explosion. :eek:

    Where are the mushrooms?!
    I need to crawl back into my spacesuit and finish this mission. :p

    I recently discovered how good some drum 'verb sounds on a recording, especially when using midi drums.
