This first SoundScape piece I did ended on a C, and so I started this piece on a C (and it ends on an Eb, which means starting the next one on Eb):

Sounded good until your guitars came in. Sounded like you had tuning issues or went out of key.

A short instrumental using the Le Lead preamp (by Two Notes) and the Rock Bug (amp-speaker sim) by Carl Martin. A bit of harmonizing in there courtesy of the Quintessence pedal and the delay is the Red Repeat by Carl Martin; playing a Kiesel Vader with a Switchblade V-Pick:
