    such a fun collaboration this was,
    i'm sharing.

    not for the faint of attention, this is a One Hour long instrumental,
    broken up into 13 distinctly different sections.

    False Haruspex (core group) wrote and arranged the basic tracks, i created solo guitar tracks on the basic 3-piece, some of the rhythms, and some melodies.

    Gear used:
    1984 Carvin DC200K electric guitar, with Duncan Custom Custom in bridge, stock carvin neck pickup. Kahler bridge.
    2006 custom Strat-style guitar, the 'cream machine', with bill lawrence pickups. Hipshot bridge.
    1986 Stan Williams Hybrid guitar, w/bill lawrence pickups in the neck and middle, duncan lil 59'r in the bridge. Kahler bridge.
    1981 Mesa Boogie Mark IIb 60 watt tube head, w/graphic eq. This head was modified for some of the tracks with a Groovetubes Substitube Tube adapter (takes 6L6 tubes down to EL84's).
    Some guitar delay and reverb effects were printed, being added at the effects loop of the boogie. effects unit is a Yamaha DG stomp.
    Pedals used: Barber Direct Drive SS overdrive, Barber Tone Press compressor, Ibanez Weeping Demon wah pedal. boss NS-2 noise suppressor pedal.
    Cabinets: (2) cabinets were used. The first, a Demeter Isolation cabinet, was internally miced with a combination of a Shure SM57, and a Audio Technica AT4033. Speakers in the Demeter were either an Eminence Legend 112, or a Celestion Vintage 30.
    The 2nd, a Roland Closed back 1x12 cabinet with a Celestion Greenback, was typically miced with a ADK Hamburg at about a foot away, and slightly off axis. Some tracks are just the Demeter, some are just the Roland, and some were Summed together, for dry iso cab sound mixed with big room sound.
    recording chain: from the mic(s), the signal ran to a A Designs Audio MP-1 class A tube mic preamp, out of that into a DBX MC-6 compressor for light compression, out of that into a ART DPS preamp/convertor, that was used for digital conversion only, and into a Roland VS-1880 digital recorder. These tracks were output from the roland into Sonar via a digital coax cable into a MAudio Delta Audiophile 24/96 sound card.

    My first thought was I don't have time for this but I clicked and was immediately interested. I listened to whole thing. Great stuff.

    Fantastico! I think Jeff Beck would like this too. He's the most creative and sometimes "out there" composer that I thought of while listening to this.
