As a true Pink Floyd-enthousiast I had to have a go at Money. Please crit! I made the backing track myself. Please rate the backing track also! Any comment about guitar technique as well as recording and mixing quality is highly appreciated.

I don't post alot here, but man, that was an incredbile cover. Congrats on perfect timing, pitch, tone and you were magnificantly fluid. You had one slight hiccup that I heard believe; but it was harder to tell.

If you're interested in how I achieved my tone, I might post a quick how-to :-).

awesome solo.

Tone was spot on and the timing was great.

Excellent playing

I've recorded that with Garageband, but I get a similar result with my stompboxes and my Boss GT-8.
Well, my 'secret' is:
In Garageband: A fender strat (with 3 single coil p'ups), some compression and at least two overdrives after each other. The first one(overdrive) is set fairly bright with semi-heavy distortion (65%), the second one (amp sim) is crunchy-overdrive-ish(British gain) with neutral eq. Then an eq which boosts a little mids and a lot of bass. This gives very fat and rich tone with endless sustain. A hint of upper-mid eq might be necessary.
On the solo of Money, the first part is double tracked (manually) with a different setting (like the middle solo). Both guitars oscillate between the left and right channel, crossing each other in the middle.

Live I do it this way: strat into Boss GT-8 (settings: rat(dist 60%,tone&vol 50%) amp sim (clean twin: little od, neutral eq), eq(upper mids boosted a little, lower mids cut a little), fx-loop out into my marshall DSL201 tube amp (dirty channel with crunch), hint of chorus to make it more airy and delay. You notice I have 3 different overdrives working. Which means it is noisy as hell! But as long as you play loud enough (that's right, the louder the less noise, with a good tube amp) it shouldn't bother you too much.
It took me hours to design my tone, but for now I'm satisfied :-).
