    @roger@pennyflic thanks for posting. To me, it seemed like the track alternated between the keys of A and E.

    @Relaxing at Cam : Thanks for joining us man. Play on these Challenges/Jams for a year without making any judgement and then look back to the 1st one you did. I think you'll find these are a great way to enable your playing.:)

    @knh555 : Once again making this one your own Kev with themes weaving in and out of the song. :) I'm curious how you do some of that without a pick ?? (The chunka, chunka bits)

    @mjark : "Don Bernardo" I had a feeling you would go with this one. Nice sound and playing to suit the backing. Good work. :thumb:
    "VI IV I V" There is a beautiful run that starts at 1:27. For me the whole track (of course I listen to them all) was worth it just for that run. :)
    "Listless". Don't know where you got that dog picture from but it's classic. A great laid back track this one and you did it justice :thumb:
    @GuitarMechanic : Very tasteful, it seems you have an affinity for the Jazz ones (and you went the full 10 minutes:eek: ). WE should try and keep 'em coming so that YOU will. :thumb:

    @fretter : It sounds like the 1st tune is a popular one. I liked the delay you were getting after the slide down the fretboard. Nicely done. :thumb:

    @Nick Evans : B:Yep, nice thick sound and splendid playing with some great licks. :thumb: A: Another nice take, I can hear that you understand the track. Great work, I'm looking forward to more of your takes. :thumb:
    P.S. It's the ones you don't have a feel for (The Jazz one) that you learn the most from.​

    @Alan L Cole : Excellent blues track Alan. Those two guitars just wandered their way thru the tune, compilmenting each other while not getting in the way. I expected no less. :)

    @Chipper : Looks like you are up and about Chipper. Great to have you back, the layback one is probably a good choice (Don't wanna over do things:D) Good sound and tastefully done. :thumb:

    @Thrup'ny Bit : Sorry dude, I have no idea what song D is. I found a nice backing track site which links the videos to youtube. I didn't really look to see if their was any info. I do a youtube download and them upload them to soundcloud so I don't even have a url I could give you. Sorry man. :oops:

    After figuring a few things out, I did the main lead as an improv. Then I added the slide, b/c, well, slide. is. cool.

    Rhythmically, I found this one to be quite fun.
