Wow, that's great. I like Neil Young too, so it really doesn't offend
me. In fact, I played the cover of Young's "Powderfinger"
with my ex-band.

The cowbell is a little bit too loud, I agree..

There are three (and sometimes four) guitars there. I used Dan Electro's
Daddy-O overdrive and Cool Cat chorus in some guitars, and then there's
also TAP plugins here and there. Thanks!

Thanks! I am glad to hear that it sounds like a real drummer. I tried to
make it to sound like that, so it's very nice to hear that.

I used modified UltraAcousticKit, just replaced some sounds with drum samples I have.
