I always wanted to write something that that was reminiscent of The Shadows or The Venturers. This is my tribute to the era of great electric guitar instrumentals of the 50′s and 60′s. This track was produced in my home studio with Pro tools and some high quality outboard gear. Video recorded with a Gopro Hero2+ .
Drums were eloquently recorded and performed by my good friend Dean Wuksta. Search his name on YT he has some other great tracks.

Well this is something totally new, not Blues at all. This song literally jumped out in an attempt to overcome a low mood. You know when real apathy and depression takes hold. Writing and producing this actually help me face my feelings head on, shed a few tears in the process but achieved something I feel good about. I hope this helps lift your mood too.
