    Default New song intro (very prog)

    Since I've been basically out of work for the past week or so I have been taking the opportunity to catch up on my sight reading. This has lead to all sorts of guitar-related inspiration and led to writing a new song, this one more guitar-focused than the past year or so, which has been more orchestration/synth focused.

    Here's what I have so far, hope you enjoy!



    The guitar is my '62 reissue Strat > Way Huge Green Rhino > Behringer GDI21
    The bass is my Music Man > MXR bass di+
    The synth tracks are a Kurzweil K2000r
    Drums are MTPro

    Everything is going through a Mackie CR-1604 mixer> Focusrite 18i20

    The key is basically Dm but there are a LOT of tempo and meter changes!

    it wasn't bad, the main idea got through. With speakers it's better

    The tempo and meter changes really make this an enjoyable song to listen to. *thumbsup*
