The 6th edition of the sumirs3cjams project! Seems like this week I have more driving music, I have a couple more in store with similar intended themes...Just some more soloing (this time with distortion FX) over a clean guitar loop backed by ambient padding. I hope to see you next week!

A smooth groove! Love the reverb (oh wait, I guess that's the distortion?) on the background guitar too, mellow and sharp at the same time, and the added FX at the end to rivet it all up. Was hoping the background loop would shift a bit though, it feels like it's always going up, up up and up, though if it broke the pattern every once in a while and went down a bit, and then up again, it... would've been pretty nice I feel. Anyway: groovy tune: great guitarplay; looking forward to what next week has to offer!


S3C responds:

Both guitars have reverb, but the lead is the one with the distortion. Glad you noticed the end FX- just gradually increased the reverb decay to make the sound fade out in a more distant manner. Valid criticism regarding the background loop- including a separate pattern/loop to break the monotony is a bit out of scope of #sumirs3cjams...unless if I can find a way to make sequencing recorded loops more efficient. Thanks for the review, look forward to seeing you back next week dude

I don't know, it is good, but not the type of song i would play for when i ran over someone by putting them "Between the Wheels and the Road", maybe... maybe, it works for when you see that someone else has been put "Between the Wheels and the Road", and you are super desensitised, so you just don't care, and go on your way as if nothing happened, not even call the emergency numbers or shit, and then this song starts playing, yeah i think it works.

S3C responds:

LOL! Well, it's not the song I'd play either in that perverted Grand Theft Auto interpretation of "Between the Wheels and the Road". But all the same I guess it makes more sense than the intended personified, intimate conversation between a motorcycle's wheels and the road upon which it burns the rubber of the tires. Thanks for the review!
