    Andrew & I collaborated on his song

    Following Andrew’s challenge to improvise over his track, i sent Andrew a message to see if he wanted to collaborate on his idea for a song. Here it it. If there is any singers out there that want to sing on it let either one of us know, that would be awesome to finish it off. Hope you enjoy it!

    what sets them apart

    I was thinking when you have guitar players like Slash & Synyster gates, etc. Obviously speed wise and possibly theory wise someone like syn or Guthrie govan have the upper hand.
