Right from the first notes of St Stephen...wow...you've got the tone nailed...just sounds wonderful. Must be a blast having a band like that...thanks for sharing. You guys sound great.

Thanks jester - I'm seriously embarrassed to admit that I finally realized

"it's the middle pickup STUPID!"

I'm such a gear idiot! :?

It is indeed a ton of fun! Still working on cultivating a following of sorts - long haul process it seems.

Thanks for checking it out!

Which era was your inspiration ?
Kat sounded great too !
:smile:
Thanks a bunch TJ - That's pretty much at it's earliest, era wise. 69-71 I'd say. Same walkdown from "lower down again" to Lady Finger - same time signature in this part, not the 6/8 they seemed to move to late 70's, quick transition from the end of the "lady finger" interlude to the signature riff.

Kat IS just plain great - excellent singer and is really on top of everything. A pleasure to work with - one of the kindest people I've met. I love the quality of her voice - somewhat unique to my ears.

Bill, sounds great!

I too enjoyed the st Stephen very much! I havent had a band that could pull it off that tight in 15 years!

And right on about kat, she has the be the kindest, nicest, most positive soul in the whole universe!

Thanks Mik - we've put some time in on this one and this is one of the cleanest to date - though I did slightly botch coming back to the signature riff following the jam :-) Clean (and dynamic!) end to end one of these days! We do kinda have that dynamic thing going on though!

Nice 'add' on kat - most positive soul in the whole universe! Indeed!
