Hey guys,

I'm playing in a sort-of starting out band and one of the songs we're going to do is called Helicopter by Bloc Party. I just gave the intro a shot and did both the guitars... I thought It sounded awsome with Smells' Line6 Patch!! This was with a click source, the backingtrack on the internet already had one guitar underneath... Somewhere in the middle I believe there's a part a bit of timing, but nothing spectaculair tongue.gif

Good take smile.gif

If you listen to the original the guitar player is playing a telecaster and he's using very little overdrive, so your distorted sound confuses a lot with the delay and it creates a little mess. That problem makes that the guitar you've said that is already recorded contribute to that dissorder. Also I don't know if it was your intention but there's only a metronome and I think your version is a little faster than the original one.

Keep coming the good work mate!
