Ok - here it is - my entry for the January contest. The song linked below is called "Shakin' The Train". All of the guitar work in this song was done by yours truly. I think you will especially enjoy the talk box solo, and the special effects used in this tune.

Enjoy, and have a great day!

Rock On! :icon_peac

Damn this is great. Very tight, excellent production and really good fills. I love the talk box on this ! You are right.

So many influences on here. Dave Lee Roth obviously, but I hear Satch, Vai, and the tone in the solo reminds me of Rothery...

Wow !!!

Glad you liked it! We had that professionally recorded at a big studio here in town. I can't remember the name of it now, but I do remember that they had recorded some big name country stars and orchestras. We were a little "different" in terms of clientelle - they didn't do much rock and roll stuff back then. We recorded an entire album there, and dropped about $5000 on the studio time.. It was great fun though.

If you would like to hear more, click the link below. Bad Boys and Seize The Moment are two more tunes I would suggest. There are some basement four tracker cuts in there too.

More Diamond Edge Tunes

Rock on doods! :icon_peac

PS: I just listened to Angel - Nice Job! I'd love to mix that up for ya using Smaplitude Studio so that I can add reverb and stuff. Do you still have the backing track and vocals audio files for that? If so, let me know - I think I could really sweeten that mix up for ya!

Cool VOX! Who's they guy doing vocals? Is he local here?
Well, he used to be - last I heard he had moved back to his home town somewhere in Illinois. I've kinda lost track of the whole bunch over the years.....
