Not really my style of playing, but I thought I'd let some steam off with a short 80's Rock Out.

Thanks Derek. The thought occured when I played the intro.

I like the Maiden-esque thrashing Bob!

Thanks Ray. Much Appreciated. I quite enjoyed doing it. Next year I'd like to learn and develop some varied styles. So there's a good possibility that I'll do something in a "rocky-type" style. These CBG's tend to bring out and expand ones creativity.

DUH!, got so excited I forgot to say "well done". Very well done!

 Reminds me of some good old Montrose. WOOOOOOOOOO! That gets the blood goin'! 

Thanks! Will be grateful if you keep 'em comin'!

Thank you Unc J. I wasn't sure what it was going to come out like... a bit like some of my builds. I'll try and put more of a head on my shoulders next time.

Yup.  It's good and I like it too.  I will ditto AGP and Andries.

Thank you for the like Doug.

In answer to your enquiry on what equipment I was using Andries - The Amp is a "Peavey Vypyr VIP-2" 40w Modeling Combo, set to Clean Classic Amp. Around 70% on Pre and Post Gain, same for Hi, Mid and Low tone settings. A touch of reverb and Delay.  I plugged the guitar through a second-hand "Zoom GU.1u" (Brilliant Multi-effects pedal) set at a High Gain "Peavey 5150" Amp model. 70% Drive etc... The manual for this pedal is like learning to fly a jet fighter. After 5 minutes of reading it I had to go and lie down for a bit, ha.
