Liner Notes: 

I arrived safely back home from Winnipeg yesterday afternoon. This morning, I plugged my laptop back into my recording gear & just played guitar. I went through a few Candle oldies (The Battle Of The Trees, The Fields Of Light, The Confused & Hot Day Cold Drink) before starting to play around in earnest with my "live" Jeskola Buzz setup. I recorded some random loops but wasn't really satisfied with them. Then this song sort of came together. It's a simple song, really - just me playing guitar, building loops as I went. The lead guitar part is not the best (then again, I'm not the best lead guitarist the start with Lol ). But this was a good exercise to get my guitar playing flowing again. I'm satisfied with the song, for what it is.

The tittle just came to me. Not sure from where… but, what else is new in that department? Wink

So, I'm back to work starting tomorrow ( Sad ), so my 50-90 output will probably slow a little from here on out. But I'm not stopping. This has been too much fun so far. And yes, I know I've really fallen behind on my listening. I gotta get back to that & catch up with my Watchlist.

See You In The Shadows…

p.s. If you're taking note of the track numbers recorded with the MP3 files (both the file names & the ID3 tags), you'll notice this is song #62. Don't fret, I haven't forgotten how to count. I just have a few tracks that were started before this one that are still in the works (including a track dedicated to a dear friend of mine). So stay tuned for those…

This is really really nice! has a great flow and groove to it!!! The little stuttery plunks on that bass line really grew on me as I was starting to zone out, and as much of a shock as the first one was, thought I kicked or knocked my guitar over while it was still plugged in hahahah ....especially as you started letting some of those notes sustain on that lead part, really enjoyable listen, and glad you had a safe trip!

that last little loop? that comes in about the 5min mark is an great super fuzzed out tone! sounds like a fun by yourself jam session! Biggrin

The bass works well throughout this one and the moments when the guitar fuzzes out enhance the track.
