A downloadable soundtrack

My entry for Tune Jam 2023. I love Surf Rock and I wanted to mix that with flavors of the early US space program, both from the early 1960s. This song features a countdown audio clip from Alan Shepard's Mercury flight and clips from Gus Grissom's Mercury flight.


Note that I'm a very amateur guitar player and GarageBand user and while I wish everything was better, it's the best I'm currently capable of. Constructive criticism is welcome!

Recorded and assembled with GarageBand, a Squier Jaguar, a Squier Jazz Bass, and a Yamaha THR30ii amp. Thanks to my family members for advice and tolerating the noise!
