So I lied, this is as far as I got making a cover of Dio's Caught in the Middle before I got bored with the idea. I'm sure I didn't do it right, but I think the tone is pretty close, albeit brighter due to the type of guitar.
I think the Sheffield 1200 doesn't quite deserve the level of hate it receives. A bit mushy on the bottom but sits fairly nicely in the mix with some good midrange crunch. Minor EQ on the guitars for mixing purposes but nothing to really change the tone, not even a high cut.
Rough draft of a song for one of my projects. Song is titled "Wasteland Rider". Just a fun song about driving at high speeds through a post-apocalyptic wasteland, looking for hapless wanderers to enslave.
