Thanks for the comments, everyone! The concept I started with for this one was that of a background track for a racing game like F-Zero. This is one of my favorite tracks. I'm particularly proud of the tambourine.
Danthrax, your stuff is awesome. I love your guitar work. You've almost single-handedly given me hope of being successful with my next project which is undoubtedly going to take a lot of time. Got the main drum riffs done today, will need to work on song structure, bass and drum fills later. Not ruling out the need to multi track this one, either. :p
