Here is a trip back to my youth, and the wonderful Beatles. This is simply played guitar, using the SN Steel Guitar on the LWR Part, and the SN Nylon on the UPR1, with a little pad on UPR2 to support it all. I hope you enjoy, especially my clam right at the end! Nobody's perfect! :evil:

Thanks, Søren!

This is a technique I have long used, using two guitar sounds (or even the same one) and a split. Transpose the LWR part up so that both guitars sound in the same octave while your hands are well apart. This allows you to do very close voiced chords and arpeggio patterns without your fingers tripping over each other!

It also works well for banjos, mandolins, even complicated rhythmic synth stuff.

I have even used this (in Whole Chord Recognition/Pianist2 Mode) in style mode and it makes for an interesting way to play and still have the backing follow you. Often, stripping the style down to just bass and drums works well with how complicated your playing can get.
