Very interesting! That does help thanks!
Its funny how Fedora's style tends to be cold and clean - when the main
difference between Fedora and other distros is the warmth and life of the

I think I'll switch to a Les Paul and try with some compression and echo to
make a water-ey/galactic sound. Might work better?

Will resubmit sometime on Sunday.
Thanks chaps! :)
