Murder on the guitar is my contribution to a competition my good friend Markus Stadelmann a.k.a. *Smark* is running on his cloud. Not entirely sure why it's called a competition to be honest and if it was anything serious I certainly would not be contributing my awful efforts on the guitar here to it.
I must confess I do love the guitar though I am certainly no great player of it, and only have an acoustic guitar without a pickup in it, so I very much had to record this via my Microphone and just play it with an acoustic sound, and apply effects to it afterwards. Not the best way to get the feel to play lead work without any real electric sound to it in the first place. But I am not making any excuses here and I mainly use my guitar for playing and singing to, and writing songs with by playing rhythm and not lead, and I would never make a lead guitarist in a million years. Which is why I would call upon great players like my good friend Raphael and many other great guitarists on the cloud to do the job for me.
There are some truly great guitarists on the cloud I have come across on my journeys on it, and I feel this is a great idea Markus as come up with here, and is a splendid way to see how the skills of many lead players approach and use their lead lines over it, to which mine I feel have just totally murdered this wonderful piece of music by Markus hence the name of Murder on the Guitar I chose for my track.
You do not have to be some great guitarist to take part in it, and if you did I certainly would not have put this up here on my cloud today for real. But I have come across 100's of great guitarists on the cloud far too many to mention here but would like to see them have a blast around this fine little ditty Markus as put up to play around with, and I will be keeping a close eye on this group myself to listen to everyone's efforts in it.
