I noticed someone posted earlier in the thread, the idea of putting some of Steve's naked vamps up for download. I thought this would be a great idea but perhaps take it a step further and rather than have just the vamps, see if Steve would be willing to remove the main lead guitar tracks from a select few of his songs and give us an "official" backing track for the final mix of some of his songs.
I know there are some backing tracks available from various books and websites but these are never quite "spot on" and there are some tracks which, whilst many performer's would love to perform them, no backing tracks exist. For example, I very much doubt we will ever see a backing track for "lotus feet" but if Steve has the option of simply muting the lead guitar track in pro-tools and exporting an mp3 then i'm sure many, many, many guitarists would pay good money for the official backing used on the album.
I'm sure a fair few guitarists on here would have certain tracks they wish they could get the real backing for. Perhaps if enough of us suggest this then Mikey might suggest it to Steve and see what he thinks ?
