      Craigslist. I know I should post a pic, but the phone isn't doing it justice. Better if I post a sample Will work on that.

          Working on it! Rebuilding my DAW, missing stuff I used to use.

            Wonder if this embed will work? Let's find out.

            Well, have to follow a stinky linky. This is a new track I'm working on. it's slow-going because I've had to totally rebuild/reinstall my DAW since upgrading to Win 10. On the bright side, new versions, new toys. But a small learning curve in the process. About to go in deep today and make some headway.

            First part is the chorus, probably, tentative lyrics : "It's a Shit Show, Glitter and gold...Pied'ing your piper and leading you to Limbo. It's a Snake bite, venom and light...putting you to sleep by the lies sold at midnight."

            Second part is verse, no lyrics yet.

            Enjoy a very early peek into my creative process. I had the riff in my head for the chorus, just pulled it out of the air. It worked, I laid it down and started building around it.

              Can't get rid of latency, choppy playback, tracks dropping out...this is a nightmare.

                Working on it. Due to the loud, endless demands for more, I offer the first draft of compete lyrics:

                "Glitter and Gold" by Greg Boycott

                (Verse 1)
                You are the straw man looking for the mind to enlight
                You are the Lion king of the cowardly flight
                You are the Iron Man with no heart and no soul
                You are Dorthy and Toto on the yellow brick road

                (Verse 2)
                You're the witch of the south, the north and the east
                The Wicked western bitch lying crushed and deceased
                You're the elected official of the lollipop guild
                You're the two red slippers from the bitch that was killed
                You're the Demon Monkey in a poppy field
                I am the balloon back to Kansas that the wizard conceals

                (Bridge)
                Spirals, spirals everywhere
                Another trigger here and another trigger there
                Vertigo you're lost and alone
                Trying to live when all that you know is a...

                (Chorus)
                Shit show, glitter and gold...Pieding your piper and leading you to limbo
                A Snake bite, Venom and light
                Putting you to sleep by the lies sold at mignight

                (Verse 3)
                You're a little girl falling through the looking glass
                You're just a wide eyed pollyanna always shaking her ass
                One pill makes you weaker, the other makes you sick
                The one father gives you hurts you like a needle stick

                (Verse 4)
                The Queen is shouting off with your head
                But what she doesn't know is that you're already dead
                Poisoned and empty, perverted and tossed
                Repelled by Garlic and repulsed by the cross
                Yeah the hatter is mad but the joke is on you
                The days are growing shorter and the lies are all true

                (Guitar Solo)

                (Bridge)
                Spirals, Spirals and zig-zag lines
                One more trigger and you're losing your mind
                Vertigo, straight
                Into the void
                Crying out for justice in a...

                (Chorus)
                Shit Show, Glitter and Gold...
                Pieding your piper and leading you to limbo
                A snake bite, venom and light
                Putting you to sleep by the lies sold at midnight

                (Gnashing your teeth in a)
                Shit Show, Glitter and Gold
                Pieding your piper and leading you to limbo
                A Snake Bite, venom and light
                Dragging you to hell with the lure of the good life

                (Repeat Chorus music without vocal/Guitar Solo 2)

                    Stalled out, focusing on photography at the moment. Short attention span and shorter time :(

                        That "clyp" was very cool and sounded great. Very creative on the lyrics. Well done.

                          Hey, thanks! I kinda forgot all about this and the good news is I still like it. The lyrics might be my best, need to get back to this. Winter kills photography, so should find my way back soon.

                              Been intending to buy a new e-guitar. I've pretty much set my mind on EVH Wolfgang Special (Polar White), but the Epi Iommi has kinda loomed on the background as a legit alternative

                              How would you William_the_Bloody describe the neck profile?
