Author Notes

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery
“Reach Down” starts with a doomy and droning electric guitar riff above slow rhythms through the verse sections. Giving this eleven minute track much of its mass the extended duo guitar lead by McCready and Gossard, while the predominant lyrical theme is “reach down and lift up the audience”. Mike McCready’s guitar solo takes off into a psychedelic stratosphere that recalls the explorations of Hendrix and the grime-spattered riffing of Mudhoney. McCready recalls, "That was my first lead on an album, and I was so excited. I'd been in a studio before, but never to record an album or anything. I did that in one take! I soloed through the whole thing and ended up with the headphones wrapped around my face. I was totally flushed. The guitar work in that track represents one of my proudest moments."

When I try playing this on my Xbox, it tells me that the song doesn't have a guitar or bass part, only the drum and vocal parts like in the upload from CrazyCanuck from January 16, 2016 that I previously had saved. I have removed that old file from my flash drive and replaced it with this new one but it still isn't showing any new instruments parts, but when I view it in the c3 tools song analyzer it shows that there are all instruments charted (minus keys). Any ideas?

I'm trying to make this work, but when I put it in my flash drive it is showing up as drums only. I've deleted the old drums only file and replaced it with this one multiple times but I can't play any other instrument. Even checked it in con tools and it shows all the instruments.
