Dude - I fricken love this tune. I actually liked the first version better, to be honest, but this is a VERY cool rhythm part. I recommend speeding it up a bit, but that is just my opinion.
I wish you could use my drum stuff, though - I don't like the drum sounds or the programming at all. A really good drum track would kick ass on this tune.
Well done, bro! Can't wait to hear the finished track w/solo and all the trimming...
Oh yeah, I like the tone better on the first version as well. I think you have a phase 90 going on this one and to me it is just too much for rhythm parts.

Guilty as charged, you're right on all counts, but here's the real story:
I went home for lunch and botched this thing in 20 minutes today.
I scrolled through the presets on the drum machine
for 10 minutes, trying to find something suitable and ended up going for this mind-numbing sequence because I was running out of time. Plus there are no fills or breaks: same reason.
Secondly, I've been Phaser-happy for the past few days, just because I managed to put some balls back into the Dunlop reussie MXR Phase
90 by tweaking the pot inside.
Again, I'm acting like a horny teenager on his first date with the cheerleader with the big tits, as I shoot my load with abandon and cluelesness. In other words I may want to try and use the phaser only on somes segments to see if it works better that way. But I dig the tone soooooo much!
As for the speed, I don't feel that the tempo is too slow, it's the drum part that's heavy and luggish I believe. I'll research that too.
Anyway, as I delve deeper into this tune I find new stuff to add, old repetitive stuff to remove, and the story goes on...
We'll see what comes up next.
Thanks for the constructive criticism.
