    This backing track is nice and sparse, leaving lots of space for you to develop the chord and lead parts if you want to. I know I will! No obligation to approach it like BB, of course.

    @mjark - Nice use of the slap back delay to fill the spaces without over playing. Sweet licks too. Cool!

    @Ebidis - That was a pretty good Ebidis impersonation :thumb: Nice gritty tone and some classic licks. Very nice!

    To be honest, I've been feeling like crap all day, and spent several hours on the sofa in zombie mode. I think it's just a cold, but this one seems to have disrupted my cognitive abilities! Before I sidle off to bed, my fingers delivered this:

    @mjark I'm glad it was the whole time - I think when people start to get a little "bored" - they get creative. I notice a bit of inventiveness and things get maybe a bit more daring as the song moved on, which is cool to hear.

    @Ebidis Kept it sweet and subtle. A great laid-back take

    @Mellencaster Something about the tone here reminds of British Strat recordings from the 60s

    @simoncroft There's a few places where you do a bend, hold it, waver a bit - and I'm like "Ok, it's coming back down, kids!" and you just go "Nah!" and push it up another half stop. There's little surprises in music that make it fun. That's one of them.

    @Mellencaster - You may not have the Blues, but you can surely play them. Very nice track!

    @simoncroft - Clever track name Smooth licks and a mellow old school tone make for a really good track.

    @knh555 - I'll take track 2, it just seemed more together and expressive. Not like the first was bad by any means, but #2 has the mojo.
