"Into Oblivion" is from my 2007 CD "The Impostor." The Impostor was the hardest album I have recorded. I started upping my guitar skill level by accessorizing my style with elements of jazz, various modes and a healthy dose of experimentation. I was also using a new software package and was learning as going. I've wrote about this elsewhere but this album burnt me out musically, creatively and mentally. I didn't touch a guitar for almost 6 years after I finished this album.
"Into Oblivion" motors along at a decent pace. It is one of the more accessible songs on "the Impostor" considering that guitar based instrumentals really are not that accessible in the first place. The guitars were cranked up to slightly distort the tube pre-amp when I really went after a note. I really like how I threaded the bass lines between the lead guitar and threw in a surfed up Tom Verlaine inspired chord for the rhythm guitar.
