    I don't know how many times you can decompress / re-compress / update the MP3 before the quality goes down too much...
    cool ashc!

    i have an idea: post your version, and aditionally for a little bit of quality savings, you could post the synth track without the backings so it can be assembled direclty to the original. know what i mean?

    OK, A couple of 8 bar .wav files coming too! I won't have sync for punch-in/out to your original click so you'll need to slide the files around a bit to get them in sync.

    Then I was thinking... my "retro electro" is likely not going to challenge the ibreathe shredders in the right way for this track - well, maybe it does... But, anyway if the experiment works we should convince someone with real keyboard chops e.g. =Bob= to really give you guys something to go up against.

    cool - no prob1

    as far as style and speed concerns: it would be even better to have some other vibes in between than just nailing sixtuplets from start to end and following the guitarcliques.
    Plays those synths as they flow out of your brain and heart, not as you think they would be expected by others - then you can't make a mistake!

    Nice take btw... fav part was the driving off in the car bit ala Floyd.

    But ermmm more importantly, Strange fantasies you guitarists have.... I'd hate to tell ya my bedroom fantasys.... but it does involve monkey bars, a tire swing, 23 gallons of KY, some "famous" people, the hall of mirrors in Versaille, and a magnatized belt & ceiling..... and a pastrami sandwich
    They call them fingers, but I never see them fing.

    The .wav files were huge, even zipped, (maybe I could .mp3 those), but in the meantime for keen "deathmatchers" here is a complete backing track with added synth breaks. Its in the 1.5MB limit at 128Kb/s should it be good enough for now!

    Two ways to use it: 1) Like me, gives you a break from guitar to think of what to play next 2) change of guitarist.

    The track has 6 * 8 bar progression repeats. Synth is on 2 + 4, you are on 1,3,5+6. I actually come in at bar 7 of pass with a sustained bass A, then G# in 8 to highlight the Esus4 to E so you can harmonise with that bit....

    Anyway, I did it real quick before the supermarket run and now I'm back I decided it will do - apologies for weird phrasing, but it will get worse if I start trying" If tonight goes well I'll add my guitar (and get back to Hirajoshi!)

    asch- i can see you might not be the fastest or best guitarist, but you had some really kool licks i was diggin'. As for that synth solo, that was just pure EAR CANDY. great job mate!

    I still listen in awe at Thorstens supercharged caffiene overdose shred lol.

    Synth solo!

    here is my melodic take, with the synth solo. If you want full on shred listen to my other take. Ive been practising alot on this backing lately. Hope you like the crazy echo, chorus , delay and reverb effects. but it fit the sythn solo sound.

    The start is just A minor tapping, second bit starts on a trill then fast AP with Harm. minor , then a malmsteen run i stole in A minor, then a sweep pick of the 2 chords. D minor and C#( or whatever it was). The last part is just a melody i made in A minor.

    Ashc, I thought your worked well. The synth was awesome and Im not really even a fan of synth . And your guitar parts sounded fine to me, just not at a million notes a minute. It was interesting how it contrasted the fast rythem guitar.
