    Hi all,
    I'm debating the use of trem throughout this tune (LP - Diamond trem through a nice little Marshall 2204) - It's the 2d time we played the tune, so it's rough, and it's only recorded on a handheld Yamaha pockettrack.

    But I love that trem, and hated to break from it in the tune even though I know a little goes a long way...

    I'll appreciate any and all comments.


    Here's another track recorded when this band was last together (recorded on 4 track tape in a basement)

    We've just gotten back recently after a long layoff and some forays into cover and tribute bands. This band will do these original tracks and covers to fill out sets.

    Any comments?

    I love the trem as well, makes the track special,go for it ! I like the way you let the vocal be heard,then attack the guitar in between.Try to hit some more of the high e and the b string,though.Could be the mix that causes the guitar to sound dark,I know.
    The other track is great as well, The Stones with a female singer,good job :)

    thank you, I know the chorus in the song needs to be refined - we're working through those things. I was worried about too much of a good thing...
    Thanks.

    I think it fits very well. Adds a great feel to the song.
