    thanks... it actually fits right in to my overall style. It's the same scale/key used on the other piece I shared earlier. This one is pretty straight 4/4, while the other is 4/4, w/ a swing feel. My problem w/ the other one is resolving it not to be a swing/tango type piece... :)...

    I found the transformer for my drum machine, so I added a beat here. I was originally, going to put a beat to the other piece, but got goofing w/ this & got lazy & started noodling w/ this.

    Growing up, my Mom raised us on stuff like Elvis, Beach Boys, Ricky Nelson, Beatles, etc. Being born in '67, the 2nd wave of the British invasion hit, & by the age of 5, I discovered Led Zeppelin.

    Then Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, etc. My taste for European music was started. I didn't seem to care as much for American rock, for some reason. Maybe it's because European music has a lot of classical influence, along w/ the blues. Later on, I caught on to UFO, Scorpions, etc. More classical w/ blues.

    Jimmy Page started it though, w/ his different flavors really appealing to me. I always liked George Harrison's flavour of the Beatles, it just added an exotic tonality to their music.

    By the time I was getting into playing guitar, Uli Roth, M Schenker, along w/ the '80s shredders, really brought some of those "eastern" sounds to life, Vivian Campbell, for one, John Sykes, even Maiden added some in. Yngwie, definitely started something getting a lot of neo-classical stuff to the fore, of music. Oh, I can't leave out Blackmore...

    If we ever jammed together, you'd see that, this is somewhat my shtick & how it fits in w/ everything else I do...

    worst clip ever. I kept trying to run through walls. I had no control over it.

    then I gave up. Walls are tougher.

    loved it!:eddie:

    With the right sounds, I could just chug away forever....forget tasty leads lol

    I'm still just stunned how the DSL took the BE OD....it's a whole other beast now. Like having a new amp, an illegitimate lovechild of MESA and Marshall together....completely transformed the amp. Just makes me wanna bash my head through the neighbor's door and scream at him for no particular reason.

    I'm super happy with the DSL40c and the Fryette SAS that I heard about here.

    It's been my understanding that the DSL makes an excellent platform for the use of pedals. So far, this has been my experience also, even though it's been very limited due to the fact that I haven't used or even tried very many at all.
