OK, it's pretty obvious how quickly I've put this together, but I had such a blast working the chords and the parts out that

I had to record a version. It's pretty messy and I totally faked my way through the solo but hey...this was a great

laugh to do! Massive thanks to Khaos for the awesome backing!

Man, I think that sounded fantastic. I didn't hear too much ad lib in the solo at all. But I was kind of hoping you might do the rap in the middle.


Nice job, man.

Thanks dudes, just love this song! I'm using my Guitar Port for the entire thing, it's all my usual settings too...I just whacked my guitar harder for that Lifeson vibe hehe.

I just listened to this again and that lead is really close to sounding like Alex. Great work, man. Love everything from the solo on. Sounds really close to the song (playing and tone).

Thanks man. It's funny how turning the volume down a bit gave the tone that extra bite. Just noticed I overcooked the bend near the end of the solo....thanks for not mentioning it haha.

Thanks Wah, Rock and Axe (again!!) and guitarmageddon...Alex is a God to me too! Lol! Yeah, Guitar Port! I find it pretty cool to record with (it's USB), but I can't afford other options to experiment with. It took me ages to find a decent tone - I use it for everything at the moment. Just downloaded the new version of the S\W which is cool (and free)!
