Arbor Vitae

Consisting of two basic sections, this modern rock track features a lead Stratocaster guitar with wah-wah. Twin acoustics form the background rhythms as they compliment the foundation laid by the bass and drums. This track also features some exquisitely placed electronic percussion tones that enhance the overall groove factor by filling out the high-end texture. The first section of the track uses a more choppy type of rhythm that features the lead guitar playing some distinctive single note hammer-ons. The second section switches to half-time, the rhythm guitars begin strumming open chords, and the lead wah-wah guitar begins playing double stops in order to accomodate this new texture. The entire track switches between these two sections until it fades out.

The basic flavor of this tune combines the elements of groove-based rock and techno flavored percussion. By combining these basic sound qualities, a modern type of very cool ear candy is created.
