    They closed the one in Orlando. I had to go to Anaheim last year to ride it.

    Ed,

    You know I love your playing and creativity........

    Tone-wise, though, that's not really doing it for me. Sounds a bit twee.......not your usual hard-hitting, visceral thang.

    Before anyone freaks out, I'm no Axe-fx basher, OR lover.....no dog in that fight.......this is just IMO, of this particular track.

    - Jim

    Thats a very nice recording. I think the Axe Fx is growing on you.

    That might be because usually I mic stuff...I'm about to put the AxeFx in my rack to see how it does live. As a preamp into a power amp. But I'm digging it.

    Once again another great one Ed, and you're in a unique position to understand why I want an Axe FX and a Sig:X as well. They're two real sweethearts. I can't wait to play the two of them together.

    I really liked the vibe of that clip and the tones complimented it well. While it's completely different, the tones in the section just before the halfway point took me back to a Tony Williams/ Holdsworth vibe 'a la "Fred" but with more creative abandon.

    Two things I love about the Axe FX is that you just keep finding more and more that you can do wth it, and conversely, you can just plug into it and lose yourself playing without doing any tweaking at all.

    Nice.

    Hey!

    That was awesome! Thanks for sharing. I like you high gain sounds. The Box records incredibly well. I have an ultra.

    Rock forth,

    Jeff
