Face-melting guitar solo!

  So, this should be a quick post... A couple months ago a co-worker who had heard me play guitar at a talent show a few years ago asked me to record a guitar solo for a track he was producing. So, I spent about 4 hours on a hot Saturday afternoon in June and recorded several takes into my computer and emailed them to Sinba.
  The next morning I received an email from him with the subject "DUDE!".  He loved the solos.
  The cool thing about this is that it has been a very long time, almost a year, since I played guitar seriously.  I'm just too busy working on my saxophone playing.  So it was pretty special to get the guitar out and use my new isolation box for the first time with a serious project.  I plugged my Wampler SLOstortion pedal into my Vox Night Train amp and let loose.
  This song is very mellow and silky smooth.  I think it is designed to put you into a trance state but then kick you in the face with a drum fill and then attack your face with a facemelter guitar solo.  Or maybe it'll just get your adrenaline pumping.  It gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it.  Now I'm seriously babbling which means it's time to play some music! Check it out!
