    instrumental light rock - One of the best examples of clean electric guitar I've ever tracked. Very pure and intimate sounding. The ride cymbal has a great character and the rim click has a sweet woody tone.

    rock trio - This track is also a rock trio. Mixed to be expansive and open sounding, it has many mood swings and even some improv from the musicians. As live sounding as a studio recording can get.
