Hi smile.gif
https://soundcloud.com/fireball100/im-drained-of-my-sanity

I'm back with another song. This one is a remake of an oldie. It's back in the day when I was producing more hard rock than metal, more like transitioning. I was a huge fan of Trond Vold at the time too. I added some sweet elements that were not in the original.

Here is the original video. Song starts at 1:55.


I have yet to write vocals, hence why the guitar solo is pushed back into the mix. Still working on the mix, actually. wink.gif

Here is the list of my gear:
Ibanez RG8 guitar
Ibanez SR755 bass
EZmix 2 Guitar Gods for amp sims
Superior Drummer 2.0 Metal Foundry


Any questions, please comment below. wink.gif

Hi. smile.gif

I released a new track on Bandcamp. It's a progressive metal instrumental influenced by Andy James, Paul Wardingham, and Trond Vold. I put my own style into it, of course, but the track is reminiscent of these players. smile.gif I hope you enjoy.

Hi. smile.gif A little late posting the news, but I purchased a bass from Guitar Center on Tuesday. Now I can track real bass for my projects; not to mention, just in time to send off to the studio while they work on the EP. THE LONG-AWAITED EP. wink.gif

I will primarily have it tuned to AEADG, but I lowered and raised it a half step both ways for a couple of songs. This bass has switchable pickups from passive to active. I tracked passive. In this video I am tracking the songs on the EP. Leave behind VST bass, we shall. biggrin.gif I'm no bassist by any means, I just imitate what I have seen and what I hear in my head.

The strings I had setup on it.

Hey everyone. I would like to share a piece I am working on. It's like the solo style of Andy James in which the guitar tells the story. It will be mixed with technical guitar lines. I really feel I'm pushing my limits and storytelling as a song writer. I hope you enjoy. I am still building the song. I will find some harmony to go into the chorus to make it sound bigger.
