...And the series continues. Much like the "Sinus" playalong, I had a couple of days in between sessions to spend how I chose and figured I'd rehearse this bugger a few times. "The Walk" is the first Periphery tune I ever heard, learned/eventually 'Orbinated', and is one of two tunes with which I was requested to audition. Of course, this was back in the old days when Jake Veredika was the vocalist; this version was released after I had left and features the mighty Chris Barretto.

If I had to quantify, I'd estimate about 90% of these parts were composed between when I joined -- Sept '06 -- and 2007, with the remaining bits and some trimmings added sometime up until I embarked to record at Audio Hammer (that story is recounted in my "Project 15" video). Because of this, some of this stuff certainly feels stale and I'd probably do a few things differently. However, I consider these performances 'snapshots' of my progress from the past, both developmentally and creatively, only executed with my current facility.

This video marks the 'debut' of the TRX ICON medium crashes that I've been using (18" & 19"), although I've already rocked 'em in three different sessions heh.

I'd like to state a few things before I issue the usual disclaimer. This isn't a feud nor is it a contest; I am not trying to prove anything. If Periphery had not gone on to blossom into what it is, I'd still construct these videos. These are artistic statements; nothing more, nothing less. It's alright to prefer somebody else's playing - that's the beauty of art, its subjectivity. One's goal should not be to sharply criticize but to be rather constructive. If you cannot leave an artistic exhibition having either learned something new or simply been inspired, then you may deem it to be 'bad'. Of course, this is my opinion and what the hell do I know? Enjoy!

Oh yah... up next is "Far Out". Hopefully I can squeeze more than one of these out per year so it doesn't take me a lifetime to document everything!

Disclaimer: In an attempt to stave off potential ignorant comments as I've received in the past, I felt the need for this nigh preposterous disclaimer. I am doing this for myself and for the sake of posterity. I put countless hours into these parts (composing, practicing, etc.) and wish to share them with everyone. I am in no way bitter or regretful; much on the contrary, I share a mutual friendship with everyone in Periphery and intend to keep it that way. Enjoy the videos!
