This was hard to record. Very hard. I don't usually have a problem locking onto the delay from a guitar but once it's turned up in my headphones for recording it gets very muddy in my ears. With no click, it's entertaining, that's for sure. The lead line also drowns out the echo part making even harder to lock on. With this sort of delay forming the rhythm of the piece, drifting out of time is a no-no. Took three punch-ins to complete the track.

I'm guessing the lack of adds to this excellent track is due to people waiting for drums? I hope so!

I'm no U2 fan and I certainly don't have any Larry Mullen Jr hats. But I tried to find one anyway. Basically gone for a 'standard' U2 style of playing: four-on-the-floor kick, 16ths on the hi-hat, alternating to playing the floor tom. I hope it's worked.

Enjoy.

No reverb on HD drums.

You gave yourself a very tough assignment on this one...but man, how you shine! Such a beautifully snappy rhythm that locks that sound in for others to follow.

Thanks, Wade. It's what I hoped to achieve. I wanted drive and power but I found it surprisingly difficult to manage it! I use to play in a band with a delay-obsessed guitarist so shouldn't struggle but it was so much harder than I thought.

I hear you! My guitarist partner of many years occasionally goes there. Have to figure out where those beats start and stop as well as a line to fit over the top of all that mess.
