    I’m actually really happy with this one. Besides the fact that I think it sounds really good, I’m really happy with the way it came out as a two box video thing to show both guitar parts since they’re distinct. Check it out!

    Nice job Brett! Like the dual guitar parts and the "who is playing what".

    Dude, that was phucking OUTSTANDING!

    I've always loved that song, it was way ahead of it's time. I think that is why it seems so timeless.
    There are so many details, and your layering, and learning of the parts is excellent.
    I was kinda waiting for Roger to look up at Howard, and vice versa, like the Brady Bunch, LOL!

    A couple of times I've coaxed my old MXR Flanger to get those weird feedback whistles in the solo, they're almost just like the ones at the end of LOC, and I'd almost swear they used an MXR for it.
    But your harmonics and whams in there were just as classy.

    I think most would agree that those guys used to do a lot of simple, but really cool things.
    And you nailed 'em all!

    Haha thanks dude! When I recorded it I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to lay them out or I would have done the Brady Bunch thing.

    I really did listen to try to discern all the little things each guy was doing and I might’ve missed a few little ones, but I think I got almost everything. I did try to play it exactly like the record.

    There is actually a preset for Barracuda on my amp modeler that I used for the Roger Fisher guitar. It was pretty much dead on I just tweaked it slightly. I notice when some people do it they go really heavy on the phase or on the flange and it’s just not how his tone is. It’s a more subtle sweep than you think.

    I didn’t notice anyone who did a cover of it laying it out like that, so I figured I would.

    Nice job, as always.
    I actually had their Animals cd on recently.

    Dude, that may be the best sounding cover you've done. Well done.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Thanks man. What’s funny is I tried all combination of guitars for it, and wound up using my two cheapest guitars.

    Nice catch! Heart had some great songs and videos over the years. I always thought Howard Leese (sp?) was a really melodic guitarist. I do also love Pink Floyd. Haha.

    Btw, wasn't there a signature 'Barracuda' flanger pedal released some years ago?
