I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It not easy to make a distorted guitar sound right in electronic music, but you pulled it off very well. A bit too much of a fuzz sound for my personal taste (isn't the fuzz a love/hate effect?) but the strat tones shows through in a good way. Like the fuzz or not, it really worked well in the mix.

Thanks alot chaps!

Its not a fuzz effect in fact as such, though I definitely do like my strat tones to have a bit of fuzz in there. i forget exactly what I used now, but it was either a DOD250 or a treble booster - both pedals have a bit of fuzziness to them.
