This is tight- nice development, and while the pitch-bending parts of the guitar give it away, it doesn’t matter; that Indian flavor sits real nice, just wanted it a little less hard right (yes, I’m getting too nit-picky). Guess I’ll have to go scope some innabar pells now ;-)

Thanks. I’m totally used to those hard sounds from all that chip music… ;)

LOL Sorry… I meant “hard right”, as in panning, not “hard, right?” All right? Right! ;-)

Right! ;)
Actually, I wanted to add a chippy counterpoint on the hard left, but I couldn’t do it without crowding the mix out, so I kinda left the guitar there and just used the chips for some harmonic support.

The addition of the “guitar” makes this one stand out from the crowd.

Nice job!

Thanks! I’m glad the guitar seems to be agreeing with people.

I agree that the guitar makes this stand out. My enjoyment really picked up after that came in.
Liked it, thanks.

I agree the addition the guitar gives it that nice ‘wow’ factor that makes a track more than the sum of its parts. Well done.
