Sounding spiff smile.gif You might try to add octaves to some parts so see if that works. Play the same rythm part an octave up or down and pan it a bit away from the original track. So split them a bit left right.

You can probably use E pentatonic and E minor with ease so try to add in some other scales/shapes and just experiment with it.

Hey man, appreciate the feedback once again, i was experimenting with octave changes and playing a part of the riff higher up on the neck and stumbled upon some good takes i will put it up once i pull it all back together, i love this fun process of songwriting and composing tongue.gif

http://soundcloud.com/josh-golden-1/joshgetup thats my favorite lead take and i think im going to keep it, maybe make some minor changes if it doenst work, let me know how it works all together, thanks again for the feedback in advance,


cheers, Josh

Sounds good to me smile.gif You might try throwing in a bit more variation in the rythm, take it down in tempo, change it up, the go back the the main riff. Etc.

Keep it up!
