been awhile since I've done a full-blown song, and it's also been
awhile that I've had a chance to play with Apple's GarageBand . Now that
I've had a chance again, I fired up some loops and >this< came out. It's
jazzy with a blues flavour, and I found some bongo loops that meshed
nicely with the drum loops I used in the piece.

I also did something else this time different - instead of using the
POD, I used Garageband's built-in amp modelling, as I never really gave
that a fair chance since I first got the program. And I think I wound up
getting some pretty interesting results, particularly the clean rhythm
and the bass sound. The lead's a bit lazy and not as accurate as I
usually like to have it, but it was fun playing with that tone.

Used - Peavey Predator Plus (using GFS Rail pickup in neck), rhythm
and solos; Dreibelbass, bass line.

Mac G4, Garageband, Samson mixer, POD 2 (for solo, the rest of the
guitars used Garageband's built-in amp emulation).

As usual, have a listen and give me an idea how I did.....
