    After seeing Dream Theater perform their new album "The Astonishing" in full...
    I'm thinking of doing the impossible (As i usually do)

    What do people think about a new full pack collection.. "The Astonishing"..

    It's a BIG project. And will be difficult, as it contains lots of Sounds & Effects..
    But after seeing Jordan perform it live, I can narrow down the Important parts..

    Any thoughts?? - feeling happy

    A classic Iron Maiden song... The Trooper from the album Piece Of Mind.

    It started by just playing on the guitar, but after jamming with the M50 I found that the Monster Lead was perfect for this. So i just hooked up the Mic, Camera and Amp and just went away to make Guitar & Keyboard Harmony.

    Using a Hammond patch on the Triton for the Guitar Solo - feeling happy

    I have to say.... I have received a lot of support and encouragment regarding my project. And it is amazing to see, especially since it's my 1st one.. But also very humbling to see the small impact i have made within the S4K community..

    Receiving Positive feedback is aways a bonus, and i look forward to bringing this forward.

    Thank you all..

    And keep ROCKIN \o/ - feeling blessed
