    Hmmm, Like I said, it could be Russ' guitar in the background, or maybe you're mistaking the tres for a ditorted guitar. Check the original backing tracks and see if you hear it better. I used both the original backtrack, and Rudy's with added claves.

    I mean, i hear it in the original, i dont remember hearing it in the new one...and it clearly sounds like a electric guitar climaxing and even when the backing track cuts out for a second (or los's tres does) i can hear it even better in the background it seems..

    No don't worry vampdude, you are correct.

    I mixed our version first and then created the backing track by bouncing only the tracks I wanted in the backing to a stereo pair of tracks. So I simply cut Rudy's lead tres track and my lead guitar track and left everything else up.

    Unfortunately, I left the volume up veeeeery slightly on my lead track when I bounced for the backing track mix so it comes thorugh in the background very slightly.

    Apologies, I only realised it much later myself.

    Cool

    Hi! i like to identify the clave patterns in the audios, if i'm correct both "ibreathe social club.mp3" and "Russ and Rudy's Social Club.mp3" are both in 2-3 clave.

    clave counting goes:
    (i use 4/4 time coz it's easier for me, bold chars==clave sound)

    1 n 2 n 3 n 4 n 1 n 2 n 3 n 4 n


    nice improv solo on Russ and rudy's social club.mp3, i think the lead guitar's tone (the cleaner one)sounds like an indian sitar, against the background with the "dirty" tone guitar, sounds like indian/brazilian/rock fusion.

    why not try using nylon string guitar or a more darkened toned overdriven electric guitar for the solo part? i think those would also be great.

    for more info look for Nelson Faria's "The Brazilian Sound". There are some nice examples on chord substitution in the Bossa Nova Chapter and a bit of Samba Chord melody in the book. And also Bruce Buckingham's "Latin Guitar".

    Cheers!

    Well, thank you very much Rudy, I'm flattered. You know I always value your opinion. Although, I am a little hurt that it took 3 1/2 years before you listened to it. (Just kidding.)

    You and me are both back from the dead. I haven't been doing much online stuff lately, since I hooked up with a small group of live musicians. Unfortunately, all they ever want to play is blues. I mean I like blues, but I also like a little variety.

    What has kept you away for so long? Still performing around the Bay area?

    Have you checked out Russ' "Cane Cutter" site yet? He's got some very nice stuff out there.

    Well the wedding season has begun and Los Boleros is booked for a wedding nearly every single saturday through the summer.

    I am also the musical coordinator for -SALSA FRIDAYS- at a club in the heart of Fillmores Historical Jazz District so I there every Friday night, if not playing, I am directing, MC, DJ and even Sound Guy.

    Add that to a full time job, I have been very busy. I am trying to take a little siesta right now before heading to this afternoons wedding.

    Theres so much to do and such little time.

    I will google Russ's site and check it out.

    ciao,
    -Rudy
