Quote of the Day

I can spend all evening goofing around in my studio, getting the right sound. Then the next day, I go in and nail it. If youre of that mind, if you want to do it yourself, I think its a good idea to have your own studio.- Michael Hedges

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!
