    No matter how much I try, my music always ends up sounding the way music did when I grew up. It's not always a bad thing though. Last night I came up with this and I think it could be improved a lot, but still has a nice feel and groove to it. Here goes:

    The backing:

    I used an ordinary strat with a Lovepedal COT50 and a Ceriatone Plexi amp through and G12H. Not that you'd hear it though :D. Please feel free to comment or post your own takes.

    The BT is yours truly on everything but the drums.

    Dude, you've got a knack for coming up with things that I can easily relate to with what I have heard in the past. I did a take over this- check it out and let me know what you think. This is a great track!

    Great backing too. Did you make it?

    Yes! I got home from the pub the day before yesterday and started messing about with some chords. I don't play drums that well, so I borrowed some loops, but the rest is me, at home.

    Originally, I miked the lead guitar and compressed it a lot. Actually, the first version went like this:
    http://www.soundclick.com/util/getplayer.m3u?id=3380265&q=hi

    Not quite as clear as the one you heard, but a decent take if I may say so. The clear one is the amp into a Palmer PDi-09 and it works quite well.

    Reissueplayer, that is stellar. I'm not even an "80's" kind of guy, and I was expecting something different, but that really sounds great. I wish I could play to it.

    why not phil ?

    just cos it says 80s doesnt mean anybody has to do the wheedily wheedily style that was in vogue then, infact, id rather not hear that stuff, id sure like to hear you give it a go.:AOK

    Jimmy, I meant that I don't have the means. My computer at home is rather ancient.

    Hi Phil,

    Thank you for your kind words. Feedback from others is an invaluable motivator for in the pursuit of making better music. May be I should have named the thread something else instead of referencing the eighties. I'm glad however, that you liked it.

    ditto, like the tone, Im an eighties guy and I know what u are saying about that vibe... unpretentious, uplifting, care-free vibe..to me thats what the eighties were.. of course I was a teenager then but the era was somewhat less?? what is the right word?? couldnt get BT either ..Tim
