Quote of the Day

“Print things. Obviously, you’re going to have to print effects on with guitars and drum machines, because you can’t tie up your only piece of outboard gear on your drums. If it sounds good going down, by all means, print it! Print a stereo mix with the effects if it sounds good. Commit, commit!”- Tom Lord Alge

Recording: "Holy Ventures, Batman! Did you just see Dick Dale walk by with Jack Bruce?!" Translation: Armond's track combines the fuzz bass sound of Cream's legendary bassist (Mr. Bruce) and the surf twang sound of the equally legendary Mr. Dale and delivers it with a full-on '60s Spaghetti western vibe...Awesome!

With the exception of the programmed drums (hey, can't blame a man for tryin'), the rest of the track is oh so appealing. The bass is nasty and fuzzy and period-correct, while the guitar, are you kiddin' me? An original Epiphone Casino captured in all of its tremolo glory. As one guitarist to another, Armond, let me say that I congratulate you sir!

Suggestions: Grab a "Fist full of Dollars", replace those canned drums with a skilled live kit/performance, and you're good to go.

Summary: Well done!
