Yeah it's totally unmixed so yeah raw, I want the drums further forward and will be removing some of the clean guitars (theres about 7 tracks of clean guitars) just tidying it up a bit and polishing it but I'm really happy with it and I feel the raw ingredients are there and the mix will just add a little more to it. Its being mixed currently by a friend of mine I will hear what he's done next time I see him and offer some input and then we start a new song too

OK, I'm still a long way off from that standard - but you know what? I don't really care. I LOVE to pick the guitar up - acoustic or electric - and just play. I can lose myself for a couple of hours, forget all the c**p the world's throwing at me, and just enjoy myself playing songs.
I'll never be a great musician - left it too late, really. But - I'll settle for reasonably competent. Or, "hey, Vic's a bloody good rhythm guitarist - nothing flash, but keeps perfect time and only needs to be told the chords...." - and I can always fill in on bass or backing vocals!
truth be told, I've hardly touched a guitar for the last month, since my Marilyn passed away - I pick up the acoustic, start playing "Three Steps To Heaven" - her favourite song - and have to put it down again. I need to change strings on the acoustic and the electric and start playing more. And I'm still at the stage where certain songs - Three Steps To Heaven, Dance The Night Away, Massachusetts, La Bamba, Tequila, Wake Up Little Susie,Oh Pretty Woman, Running Scared - just make me change channels. Can't listen to them yet without memories flooding back.
Maybe I should just get up tomorrow, find those songs on youtube, play along with them and get them out of my system?
Oh, and the other thing - my propensity for damaging my hands reared its ugly head again. March 10th, cutting an onion, took a large slice out of my RH index finger. My strumming finger. It's almost healed up now, but it was bloody sore for a couple of weeks or so.....
Oh well, maybe in the morning I'll feel inspired.....
