    This tune was giving me a hard time. I didn't want to step on the guitar part (I like it) and nothing really jumped out at me. Anyway, here's the tune with what I came up with.

    What do you think? Any suggestions?

    p.s. Not sure how long it'll be there. They tend to not stay too long to conserve space.

    There's something to be said for simplicity. The only place I might be tempted to add a little more melodic flash would be in between the vocal at the first build. "as night rages on..." I thing that's the words. That would be somewhere I'd feel comfortable to scale things upward a bit.

    Anyway, I agree, don't diminish from the guitar part. It's nice.

    Just my opinion. Sounds nice though

    Thanks Zulu,
    That's what i was looking for. It was really the verse (opening) that I was wrestling with. The chorus (His mind races on... etc.) I heard and really wanted to keep with that "rocking" sorta thing the drums were pushing. (Though it does open up a bit at the end and maybe there I could "embelish" a bit). Again, Thanks for the input.
