Thought I would get back into the swing of things and give this tune another go. It's a little self indulgent but it still has a nice raw rock feel. I love the way Holdsworth used to work very creatively (and rebelliously) around box scales. Once again I'm hanging on by my fingernails with the leads.:toothless Looks like someone took over my GUITARDED avatar!:nunu:

Damn adventurous!!!

Some of my favorite Holdsworth is from this era!!

Soft Machine's Bundles is one of my all time favorites!!!!

You totally nailed his playing in this setting!!!!!

I would darken the solo tone just a tad.....take out some 3-8kHz, knock out down 3-4 dB

Amazing!

Thanks so much Scott. Your the real thing (all things guitar) but you are also a fantastic writer and teacher! BRAVO!
I know what you mean about the tone, its a bit like the sound of grating teeth at times. I think I need to stop using maple necks and dense body woods. Hey, I forgot all about Soft Machine! I'll have to try and find those records again. It's a funny thing that Allan himself feels that his playing was very primitive back then because (to my simple ears) I feel at times he was touching on the sublime.
