    Overall I think it's a great effort. I think if you go back and try to really hammer that bassline out with more of a solid booming bass than that bass that sounds like you're playin a keyboard to his guitar, you might have an explosive track on your hands. Raise the level of the drums a little bit too and see how that effects the actual feeling of the track. When you do those guitar solos I know it can be hard to figure exactly where to have the drums mixed. Don't forget Matrix and Futurebound have already done this style. If you want to be explosive, you have to try to bring it to their level of business. You probably closer than you think. None the less great concept.

    Keep it up, don't stop!

    Did you happen to experiment with any of the suggestions that I made? or do you feel that you like it where it is? Just wondering cause either way I value your opinion on the matter.....peace.

    yeah
    tbh , i left it like it was , checked the b line , and nothing scared me .
    i think u may be right , no problem at all , i just thought that the version was good enuff to ply in gigs .
    this tune's been signed , so it will get a decent (lets hope so) master , and all will be fixed , sorted .
    i have so many tunes to finish , i prefer doing fresh stuff in comparison of spending monthes getting the exact sound , cause the engineerer will do it , all about good mixdowns , and a bit of luck .
    here it is mr progression :)
    big up !
