    Here's my effort with the song. Production is not good, it is too loud, and maybe guitar even louder. At some spots execution could definitely be better but I kind of like it so here it goes :


    gear :
    ibanez uv70p -> boss me-25 (some shreddy setting) ->Linux Kubuntu laptop:
    -> jackctl ( pulseaudio) -> Ardour5 (cab sim) -> jackctl (pulseaudio out) -> guvcview

    I really like the whammy work you did on this. It fit the song very well.

    WahFul it 'tis. Find the sweet spot.



    EDIT:

    Forgot to add the chain:

    Gibson CS SG (57 Classics) w/ old strings
    |
    Fulltone WahFul doing cocked wah ("Jimi" set to sweet spot)
    |
    Marshall plexi cranked -> HP Dummy Load
    | (Suhr ISO line out)
    UA 2-610
    |
    DAW
    |
    [VST] SIR2 (Celestion G12-65s / SM57)
    |
    [VST] Waves EQ Classic (80's-ish style)
    |
    [VST] Soundtoys Echoboy (360ms / 1 repeat)

    On the "2":

    [VST] Altiverb EMT140 (just a hair)
    |
    [VST] Waves L1
    |
    [VST] Kramer Tape

    neck pickup parts (intro / chorus / outro )panned L 15%
    bridge pickup part (middle starting with pick slide) panned R 15%

    Toughest part whenst soloing is coming up with something that isn't cliche'.

    Next toughest part is coming up with little "themes" that fit and sound cool.

    Then, somehow fitting all of that in a sequence that fits the vibe (build / release).
