Well after WAY WAY too long, I did some recording last Sunday at a friend`s home studio way out in the countryside.
One thing that has interested me for a long time, is taking dance mixes and infusing them with guitar. Some of my favorite bands have done something along those lines. Last year a buddy of mine in Malmo, Sweden, sent me a track-he also plays guitar but told me he didn`t have any ideas for this one, could I give it a go and see what happens. After a bunch of listens, I recorded three tracks. My bud said to record as clean as possible, he wanted maximum flexibility for remixing. I just went through my VHT line buffer and that`s it. I also did a remix of the soundtrack for my youtube video. Mr. Mixdown guy accidentally put a drum track on the first part, it was supposed to be keys only. We finally got it all together but I said, actually that`s kind of kool with the drums. I might just play over it for fun. Then I did a simple piano intro for another song-a friend who works at a studio in Canada is a real pianist, she said she could flesh out the melody for me.
Anyway my bud said it`s going to be a while before he can get to the remix-one of his hard drives crashed and he has a new one on order. Meanwhile I`m going to ask if it`s okay to post the rough mix here. I`m sure it`s okay but I`d rather check first. It might be a little hard to hear what`s going on but you can get the idea.

Larryz if I don`t stay busy, there is a special sub-basement of hell.
I believe it`s one floor below the temp workers.

In case you missed it, here is a copy of my reply-

Thanks for the careful listen and thoughtful comments as always. Yes all the audible guitar sounds are by me. My bud did originally have a bit of chordal stuff going on but it was extremely low in the mix and is not a presence at all in what you hear. As mentioned, there are three parts interweaving. Once my bud does his remixing magic, I`m sure the rough spots will be sanded down.
This is actually closer to my foundations on guitar than the acoustic sounds I`ve been doing in recent years. I was surprised at how much work it took to get my electric legs under me again.

So basically, the phasery sounds are kb, everything else is me.
