Thanks...yes- that seems to be the general (and valid) opinion. I was trying to make the lead as obnoxious as possible without sacrificing the other elements too much. I think I over did it. - I will re-work and re-POST here later this week with a bump post. (Otherwise- this tune seems to do really well live...tested it out on a crowd of about 200 ppl [w/that treble knob turned down a bit on the mixer, thanks to the feedback here, lol] - the crowd went nuts! YAY!
