    Going through some painful wrist rehab, this was a few one takes (rhythm, then bass, and lead) using a drum track I grabbed from YooToob. A bit of post production on the leads is about it, save for some bass compression (which was just a bit hot in the mix).

    My apologies if I haven't been listening/commenting on others tunes lately. I always enjoy the music here, but haven't had much time.

    With a title like that I had to listen. On this forum I tend to hang out on the originals forum so got excited when I saw it, then I heard it!

    Man you are nailing some heavy guitar lines in there! I like around the 1:24 mark where the bass has a nice little push, then around the 1:42 mark has a change in vibe.

    As you might know Ive had 6 months of painful arm/wrist ops and recovery which to me has only improved my playing as I am careful about how extreme Ill go. So cool to hear it hasnt stop you at all, sounds like you just woke up and decided to dominate everything!

    Thanks Rob!
    I've read about what happened to you, and then heard some of your new stuff, and was blown away. That was truly inspiring, and really helped me to 'get over' the fact that right now I can't just be where I was before my accident. I'm really tired of being in pain all the time, and this song was my outlet for the anger at myself for not being more careful, so the bolded part of your quote is both funny, and true. Love it.

    :cheers:

    Thanks Cel! My wrist kinda swole up after playing that, and I can hear the weakness in the bends (which are the most painful), but yeah... it's a thing. I appreciate you giving her a spin!

    :cheers:

    Plank! Was this a case of ' i dont care about my arm, im gonna play through it and play whatever the hell i want?' Great stuff, drivin rhythm guitar riffs! Loved the layering 1.40 had that little tinkering line with a Celtic sounding guitar over the top, sounded ace. Lots of goodies like that combined with the cool bass line. Also so fiery leads that would stretch the healthiest of wrists! Way to go, super track!!

    Thanks! And yes, that's exactly what I was thinking. I paid for it for a few days though. I've been doing a slow build up lately since I learned my lesson.

    :D

    I thought the same, but more of a Mr Scary type thing. Never heard that tune. Nice! Thanks!

    :cheers:
