Omar's Song


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
My nephew, Omar, sent me this short but sweet little mix he put together. A drummer, by trade, Omar picked up the guitar and laid down this very cool track, which surprised the heck out of me... NEVER underestimate the drummer, folks. There's more music in them than meets the ear!

I added the hard driving guitar rhythm and southern-fried solo work. We hope you like it.

NOTE: Until recently, Omar played in the Atlanta area and has toured and recorded with SEXXXY CIRKUS - a hard driving, Lenny Kravitz-sounding rock band that has played the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood on a number of occasions. The lead singers, Swift and Jaye, were background singers for Little Richard, before putting forth their own creative work. You can check them at their MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/sexxxycirkus

Omar
Has it going on. And I never thought I'd say this, being a guitar instrumentalist myself, but I think the lead overpowers the song a touch. I found myself straining to hear the sound bed that your nephew laid down.

It's all good though, the lead was entertaining.

Straight Ahead...
..GB effects with a tweak here and there on my iMac.

When it comes to gear, I try to keep my 'footprint' as small as possible... Thanks to townhouse living. :)

Thanks for giving it a listen, Mark.

Cross-pollinated!
Wow. Omar obviously got cross-pollinated while playing with his band. Would it only were that a guitar hack like me could pick-up the sticks and forego the drum loops!
