Duel (Rules of Engagement}


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Well I don't know if I'm playing by the rules here but this is my answer to Cydniko 'Duel'. I have spent most of my life breaking the rules and I'm not going to stop now. I made no changes to Dion's song, I just played my guitar around and through everything he put down. He has a way of putting these great grooves together and he makes it easy to play to. So I hope you like my 'Rules of Engagement'. Enjoy.

Not Sure Either,
But I like it. Especially since so much was already put into the beat, and
your guitar is catchy.

noon... yah, with that guitar playing. Way to use that tasty groove John; it was made for a quickdraw like you to come along and jam to it, making that strat sing. Right on!

Puts up a fight
Way to stay competetive chak, who cares about rules... rules are meant to
be broken. You took a shot at Dion, and I think you injured him, but at
the same time, the original song form isn't lost. Way to go, fight the noble
fight.

Cyd in this fashion. BRAVO!

Hot smoking guns...
Whoa!!! - And, hot Damn Mister!!! The chills that shimmied off of my shoulder and then down my spine...

Chakares, you may not believe it, but I had just signed on w/ the thoughts to email you to tell you that if you weren't yet inspired by a certain 'unnamed ditty' that I had something else that I was thinking of sending you to play over just because I wanted to hear your outrageous playing over something that I had created. Although it wasn't this duel thing, I am truly flattered and quite satiated.

That was smoken! - Thank you for taking a shot at this and for taking it on. Once again, I feel quite honored. I know that you don't need to hear it from me but please sir, keep breaking rules... Dion

Who needs rules, anyway?
If breaking the rules results in cool stuff like this... oh, boy!

Excellent playing over Cydniko's groovy background beats. Allow me to
reiterate: You really can work this six-string of yours!
Very cool!

Chak and Cyd
Chak, you took a great sound bed, and made it into a mixture of "2cc" of
pure entertainment. The original slipped through my fingers... but has the
groundwork of very intellegible instrumentation (sorry Cyd, for missing
the first version). A "duel/duet" it is! Great groove and overlay of guitar
work.

Engagement of Rules!!!!

Hold on tight
Sweet on the strings, this is really groovy and your doing a nice job of holding your own when it becomes a bit vacant. The ToneLab sounds fine and your strat sings.

thoughts from the bull...
i discovered this piece in the 2006 MacJams Retrospective collection. the guitarwork is sensational. i tried to locate the original piece, but was unable. unfortunate, because i would liked to have heard both to really get a full sense of just how impacting your contribution is.

jeez louise, you really rip that guitar apart, don't you? wow.

very happy i discovered this! thank you!
