I think I will wait until New Year's Eve...wait until we all get home....wait until I am the only one left awake....wait until I am in a sufficiently altered state.....wait until the altered state becomes even more sufficient....then we'll give that clean tone a fair shake, post the video..... and I can always claim that I was too "David Crosby'ed" to get it right.
