Tomahawk

A rough demo I did some years ago

I had intended this to be a song but haven't got round to it, so probably just leave it as an instrumental.

The melody was recorded in one take using a Les Paul amazingly.

Very well done, my friend...thought I was watching a movie like the big boys make-I know exactly how you accomplished that, just start playing and let the music take you to where it wants to go,I have one kinda in that same vein that's been bugging me all week, like an Irish lullaby or something.
Iv'e written a lot of songs, but sometimes they write themselves....again, very well done.

Cheers. I did the melody in one take after laying the chords down.

When you can marry sights and sounds together like that, it's a beautiful
thing...a talent that I am sadly lacking in....

It's pure luck with me. Apart from playing guitar, I'm not very artisitic

Sounds great John. However I know that you aren't a fan of pedals. We're you using the drive channel on your amp to get the grind on your guitar?

No Rob, I recorded it with Garageband, plugged into an Akai EIE Pro interface. Can't remember exactly which garageband setting it was but it was one of the cleanish ones. Any grins was down to my fingers
