Wow, I'm a SUPER de-duper HERO stud now!

Here's those demos My son Aaron and his friend Alex recorded:
http://www.soundclick.com/notreadyforaliveaudience Shark Falconry is the name of their band. Not Ready For A Live Audience is a name for posting demos from Swampbilly Studio and Vance Ranch Studio. These demos were just something for the drummer, Jeff, to go by for writing his drum part. There's another member I haven't met yet, named Alvin, who's the other guitarist, front-man, and also a writer/arranger.

Both these songs are written by Alex Brewer and performed by him and my son, Aaron. This was the first time I've seen/heard them playing together. I told Aaron I liked his bass playing; he said, "I was mostly just playing the root, I haven't written  bass lines for 'em yet."  Huh?  So much for my critical ear.

    Good stuff! Reminds me of something, but I can't place it right now...maybe a band I used to listen to called Helstar. Sort of progressive galloping metal stuff....

Drums?  Even a machine would work, eh?

The second one sounds like a mix of computer game soundtracks I've heard over the years, I'm liking it!

 . . . progressive galloping metal . . . mix of computer game soundtracks  Grin I think Y'all have nailed the main influances.

I thought some of the rif****e sounded a bit like something from **** Christ Superstar.

The instruments heard are a Carvin belonging to Carla (mahogany body & neck, with carved maple top, in a shape I call 'Paul Reed Strat), and Aarons Fender Jazz Bass, both plugged dirrectly into the UX1.

Alex doesn't even own a guitar right now, so Carla loaned him her Mexican Fat Strat to take with him. It's weird that someone can play like him having mostly used borrowed guitars. Carla and I don't have any talent much beyond the ability to loan guitars, so I guess it works out. Smiley

This has been here for like 2 years and I only just noticed it 
My apologies mate, it's awesome  Cool I like the galloping thing too. I could never make it sound that good though.
Needs a real heavy hitting drummer. Think Tommy Lee  Cool

Yeah, 2 years and there is no update? What's up Scott?  Certainly, we weren't waiting on Glenn.    Wink  

Hi Glenn.  

Seriously though, I like that "Not Ready..." tune and would like to hear it fine tuned.

That's absolutely correct, Glenn. 

I've forwarded a link to each of their FaceBook pages:
