Hey everyone!

Recently got a riff stuck in my head and two days ago decided i needed to exorcise it so got in my studio and started laying some bits down, it evolved into something I hadn't planned on and found the whole 'reactive' writing/recording process really inspiring.

Hope you like it, its a little more fiery than my normal bluesy material haha biggrin.gif

Sounds absolutely wicked - gives me electronic vibes (in a very positive way)!

Wow, great prog/fusion vibe! I like it from beginning to end. One suggestion: the stereo field seems a little unbalanced at times, with the riff sometimes predominantly on one side.

I was totally surprised smile.gif I guess I was expecting something more "Regular" ?tongue.gif This is wicked but cool. Sounds like you've taken a turn in your playing and try to combine some classic tones with modern flavor smile.gif

Thanks guys, its definitely different to what I normal play and write but was one of those things where that riff just wouldn't leave me alone so best to record it to get it out of my system. Since I uploaded this track I've put out my new album and you can tell it's definitely different to this track.

Hi Chris, great stuff man. This sounds very unique to me. It's has a very dark vibe. It makes me feel that there is something (possibly not good) that is going to happen, it creates suspense.

I hope to hear more new music from you soon!

Brilliant, I agree with Gab, it is full of suspense, like someone running through a war torn city dreading turning each corner in case of finding an enemy soldier.

Awesome Chris, keep it up buddy, it's good to make a break from the norm wink.gif
