Description
This started out life as a track that Tony, (Soundhound), posted as an open Collab back in April of last year over on iCompositions called "Track Jumper". I was visiting Tony's page one day and noticed it so I decided to see if I could do something with it just because of the challenge.

Tony's original track version of Track Jumper is at
http://www.icompositions.com/music/song.php?sid=86959
if you want to check it out.

What I did was figure out the BPM and key for the song and then added a Bass line to it. Then I augmented the drums Tony used with another set and added some drum fills and cymbals. Well, I couldn't just leave it alone after that so I added a few more things. Like Rhythm Guitars, some Lead Guitar riffs and fills, Organ, Synths, Electric Piano and what ever else I could throw at it.
By the way, that wailing screaming Guitar part that runs throughout the song is Tony beating the bejesus out of his guitar. Man what a sound he laid down for this, it's killer

Whether what I did is actually an improvement on what Tony did on the original is still in question, but while retaining Tony's original work, this one is different. And most important of all if was fun messing around in Tony's "musical sandbox" for a while.

So here tis, Soundhound and sloparts, together again, for the first time doing "Track Jumper on Aisle 3".

Thanks Tony, for letting me play with your song, it was a lot of fun to do.

Thanks for listening

Ed

Thanks Maurice
Tony gets the credit for the basic track and that wonderful guitar lead. All I did was the bass and drum additions and a few other touches to add some sparkle.

Thanks for the kind words and for listening my friend. I do appreciate it.

Be well and be cool,

Thanks Feter
The guitar belongs to Tony as do some of the other back ground work. I added the Bass and some more Drums, then added some keys hits, guitar fills and riffs, the rhythm guitars and a few synth and organ parts.

Glad you like how it came out, I have to say I kind of like it too.

Thanks for listening and the kind words my friend, it is appreciated.

Be well and be cool Feter,

As I've said before, Tony did all the heavy lifting on this one with that fabulous Guitar track. All I did was fill in the blanks and connect the dot. Glad you liked this my friend. Thanks again for the listening and the kind words.

I don't care what say the others
I like it a lot!

I'm sitting in front of the woodstove putting Dubbin on my workboots (for tomorrow) and I'm listening for the third time. Thank you both for helping me get away for a while: somewhere warm and swampy.

Cheers, Richard

Thanks Richard
Glad you've got the fire going and it's warm inside. If you stick a pan of water on the sove it'll make it steamy hot in there. That'll help the illusion some I figure.

Thanks for the listens and the kind words my friend. Glad you enjoyed your trip to the Bayou, even if only in your mind.

Be well, keep warm, and be cool, (is that an oxymoron)

Thanks Jack
I'm not sure I took this in the direction Tony had in mind when he recorded the original track, but I kind of like where it ended up. It was a lot of fun working on this one and I'm really glad Tony, (Soundhound) let me play around on it.

Glad you enjoyed ridin' the rails with us my friend, and sent along the kind words on it.

Be well and be cool Jack,

This is really cool. I think that all the instrumentation that you added really showcases the guitar. Love all the sounds zipping in and out. Great production.

Thanks Chroma
Tony did such an outstanding job on the guitar, that I didn't want to take anything away from it. So instead of beating it to death, I just gently framed it in the mood the guitar part evoked in me.

Glad you like our work and thanks for the kind words on it. I hope to work with Tony again sometime. He plays that Ax with so much soul and feeling, it's hard not to want to do this again.
