Track by Track Review


Hot Box dotdotdot
Country (Instrumental)

"Hot Box" is a light hearted country instro with a cycling riff and an easy sound. Nicely played and captured well, but until the break, it's pretty repetitive. The break moves into a thicker rock sound with feedback and jammin' riffs.

Tabasco Fiasco dotdotdot
Country (Instrumental)

Bouncing twango with fun riff. Tremolo second guitar and a nicely written break, which is where the variations occur.

Carolina Woman dotdotdot
Country (Instrumental)

Light and playful, with a bouncing rhythm and hoe down feel. "Carolina Woman" has a classic fifties country sense about it. Simply fun!

Elation dotdotdot
Country (Instrumental)

Fading in gradually, "Elation" moves a bit away from the country and into urban thinking. Layered guitars and textures, wah-wah, and some very tasty scale progressions.
