Once I get the basement flood cleared up, I'll just download the whole thing and add a track with a solo . Do as you see fit at that point. Great tune.

I think we have a singer. guitarnoise 'elphantalla' said he'd give it a try. he has that great higher end voice.

Sounds good so far! I can't wait to hear the next few iterations. 8)

nuno, give it a shot too. you could try little fills between the verse, for example.
Ok! I'll do! :D

Boxboy sent me the backing tracks by email. I'll work on the those versions.
one thing I wanted to do, but didn't, was to play a two note bass that followed the chord changes.
like in a Johnny Cash song. want to try that?
Sorry, I don't know what you mean :(

Could you send a link to one of those songs? The name of the song?

I think we have a singer. guitarnoise 'elphantalla' said he'd give it a try. he has that great higher end voice.I could put a treble type 12 bar blues slide to the track as well but I wouldn't know how to join or if the slots are filled up.

Hey, Derek,
I think we might be full up for this iteration. We're trying to work in some pedal steel and/or piano as well, so that'll be a lot going on.
But feel free to have a go at any section you like. Maybe at some point we'll be able to extend the mix and stretch things out a bit.
Send me a PM with your e-mail if you'd like the bass and drums BT and/or a chord sheet.

I use Google /Images to find my 'album covers'. I sift through a few dozen before I find something.

I was just runnin this through, and found some not bad harmonies for the chorus. I think you have that part covered with Boxboy, but if that changes let me know and I'll take a stab at some harmonies for the Big train part and gone, gone gone.

hey dog. my house IS up for sale. hope it goes quick, because I found a property in farm land I could do.
thanks for the compliments. I would love to be in a band with you.

I have this posted at soundclick and it went to number 3 on the charts. woohoo.

the new extended version boxboy and I are concocting will be even better.
