Description
If you were to go back some years to my old band this is the type of sound you'd hear. I've always loved fIREHOSE and those little obscure Police tracks from the early albums. Maybe you can hear the influence.

I know this is the second instrumental in a row, but I've recently recorded about ten "proper" songs that I will trickle out over the half year or so.

The picture shows my first electric guitar, a Gibson Marauder circa 1978. I traded it in for a bass for our bass player because he couldn't afford one at the time. I miss it and never got it back :(

I hope the 50€ bass I play with sounds good here. Enjoy!

LL

Nice old gibson ... you must miss it. Cool tune and playing. Interesting progression.Guitar sounds good! The bass and drums are working well together. The ending ends a bit abrupt but I'm just being nit picky. Enjoyable groove.

Abrupt
Maybe too abrupt for you, although that was the idea. I didn't run out of tape lol.

Glad it worked for you.

Thanks

Jazz/rock
with some funky elements too. Does keep you interested. Those jazzier chords combined with the chorus? do make me think a little of Andy Summers. Crisp and tight performance, good mix too.. that end does sound a bit "cut 'orf".

Fade out
I could have just faded out I guess. I've always been a fan of the abrupt ending though.

Thanks for the Andy Summers comment.

it sounds good. It is as much about the guitarist as the guitar. You've got a smooth style. Love it. Thank you.

Influences
I can hear them, specially in the tone, but this is much more elaborate than The Police (don't know firehose). It would be hard to sing a pop-ish melody over this one I guess, may be a jazz singer could make it work.
Very much impressed with the drumming.

backing track
Sounds good, but I wouldn't quite call it an instrumental. Imaginative chords, but to me it's something short of a full composition.
