Relentlessly great drums from the McNair drum factory, with relentless bass and guitars from the Exton machine.

Love
that big beat. Makes me think of Gabriel or something. Tons of variety and a cool blend of acoustic and electronic. Outside the box again!

As you know, it's the first mix, and it's full of slips, but it swing, rocks and rolls, and mostly is fun.

Whatever
That is, whatever flaws and blemishes you are not entirely happy with, I wouldn't worry about tweaking it too much so it loses its raw vibrancy .. because that would take the fun right out of it.

Cheers, Warren
I won't mess with it too much. Just tidy up and make sure there's no clipping.

This is really cool Graham
Rocks (a lot!), and is just perfect on the wierdness scale for my liking.
I hear some interesting vocals over this, in a middle eastern vein. What are your plans for it?
It sounds great.
Thanks for the download.

Too soon to tell!
It came together very rapidly. I can hear some voice on this for sure. I just had a blast playing over David's awesome drums. There were three sets in all. I chose one as the main one, then popped the others in as needed. Glad you enjoyed it, Neil.

I looped the bass. I'll put a few changes in as I work on this. Thanks for the encouragement. Mr E.

Loving that guitar at 0:46. It's a driving piece to be sure and has lots of tasty bits all over the place. If you had some 7/4 bars in a few places with quick changes I'd say it would be kind of prog like. But no, it's more original than that. And more fun!

I would do that
but Garageband isn't very cooperative when it comes to switching time signatures. Maybe when I eventually upgrade to Logic. Thanks for listening, Doug.

If you do upgrade
at least you can be comforted by a much more reasonable price for Logic these days and a user interface that is more intuitive and similar in many ways to GB. Surprisingly, Apple has made at least 3 releases in the last few months for Logic that have not just fixed bugs but also added new features.

For now your music sounds great in your current DAW. Looking forward to the next one!

I like the sounds you use and the development of the piece. Interesting work, Graham! And that's a nice looking guitar in the picture - yours I presume?

Faithful Ovation
I do a lot of composition on it, usually in DADGAD, but recently I've been using DADEAE as it turns it into a poor man's Chapman Stick. Thanks for listening, Philip.

A major dueling loop!
...layer upon layer upon layer. Impossible to get lost here since it's all so well-organized. Yep: relentless it is, but also filled with unabashed energy, some wonderful inventiveness, and a clear vision of what it's expected to me. May not be in my wheelhouse, but I certainly appreciate the creativity that it takes to fashion such a focused track. (Whew...I'm exhausted.)

Hi Paul
I threw it together and then organised it into some sort of shape. It sounds a bit more coherent these days. Glad you appreciated this version.
