Which Guitar Amp?

My local music shop has a used 35 watt Sundown SD-CJ-35 Clone Jr guitar amp for $99; they also have a new 20 watt Fender Champion at the same price. I'm not finding a lot of information about the Sundown on the internet, so I'm a little hesitant to choose it. [more inside] posted by steinwald at 7:24 AM PST - 3 comments

Kiev (Copycat Remix) by @Ummagma

I am one of those people who, when I listen to a remix of any given track, set the bar really high and I'm pretty much hoping for a total transformation of the song into another creature, so to speak. That is exactly what happened with this recreation of Ummagma 'Kiev' when put in the hands of master Swedish remixer Copycat. I hope you enjoy the result just as much.

A Five-Cornered Square

Another noodl-ey instrumental - the ingredients of this one are a guitar driving a synthesizer and a multiFX over a bed of soft-synths and drum emulator(s).

The Question and the Answer

A short instrumental I wrote on the bass in 1989, but never got around to recording until now. This is song #1 in my series "Unu Kanto Po Semajno" where I plan to record approximately one song per week during 2016. This song covers the period January 1 through January 8.
