    Very accomplished production/sounds, really nice tune, tones, and your playing topped it off, with lyrical mature lines. Liked the way you saved the fast muted fire works for the climax, enjoyed it, Thanks for sharing with us

    No prob...it's great stuff! Love the chords and textures...and the logic drums kill!

    And man, that JMP sounds great. I love JMP's with a box in front to "push them over the edge". Huge sounding amp! Keep it up!

    Man, I feel like such a lazy @$$ with all of the killer composition and production brother Frank is bringing to the table

    Notwithstanding the killer playing and MARSHALL TONE , the most impressive thing to me is how there is this ostinato bass line/pedal point with this edgy pocket, but then there are these dreamy (nebular-huh?) harmonies in the vein of Holdsworth/Weather report .

    The thing that's cool is how the progression seems like it shifts key centers while the bass more or less holds one key center, but then shifts to certain keys of the harmony at certain points - while still maintaining the the same pocket !!

    Another thing that's notable is how you capture the dremy side of holdsworth, but gt the cool alternate picked burn lines i the vein of Ald & John Mc

    Frank, I know most of us fusion guys only want to do shows with one guitar, but if you ever need a cat to hold down some rhythm for one of your big gigs, drop me a line

    I''ll take 60 to Yeehaw Junction down the T-Pike !!!

    P.S. I'M ABOUT TO PUT BNF ON AGAIN FOR THE 3RD TIME IN A ROW

    Yeah I thought the bass ostinato underneath the shifting keys was really cool too
