we'l get along…

This weeks noodle is an example of when you try something and it doesn’t work - we went for an electric solo on this, thinking kind of Neil Young/Thurston Moore/Zappa(live)/Greg Ginn messed up soloing - we just ended up kind of messy. Thats what happen when you do last minute… Continue
