This is the first mix done on the new Xubuntu system. It's a simple guitar improv, maybe some kind of a slow blues. Just a few tracks. The guitar is in one take. No edits, no comping, no retake, warts and all included. One guitar track, two synth tracks for the backdrop, one bass track. One main drum track plus one room and one hihat track. Plus some effects sends like reverb and saturation.

Comments welcomed - cheers.
