    This is made from a drum track that @Davy sent me back in January. I decided to work on it today and man, am I rusty on the bass. Anyhow, I haven't added any guitar to it, so it's just drums and bass. and runs just shy of 5 minutes. Please fill in the blanks!

    Cool!
    Papa, you'll need a longer cable if you're gonna play in his band from your place.

    Well I've fixed the missing sound on my PC so hopefully I shall be able to make a contribution later when I get back from playing at church.

    Nice one Arty. I don't think I have ever used the middle pickup on my Strat.

    PapaR, CaptainM, Davy, Artyman, Paleo:
    Thanks for the nods, and continued inspiration!

    In listening back, my tone sounds almost trumpet like to me now. Hadn't detected that before. Too many (or too heavy) on the effects, perhaps.... but I should make a note of my settings, in case I ever *want* to sound like a trumpet. :)

    Great!
    Just think of all the $$ you've saved by not adding a trumpet pedal to your rig(y)

    I thought it sounded like you were playing a "resonator"? And maybe with a little bit of slide?

    Especially when you "slid" into that second chorus.

    But maybe the sound of a trumpet resonates more with you.:)
