    There is a lot of scope in this week's track. Do with it you what you will. Here's the YouTube vid:



    Here's the audio for that (with a quiet added count-in to the main section, because the tempo of that piano intro is slightly free-flowing):



    And here's just the main body of the track with a count-in:



    Apologies if this has arrived too early/late for your time zone. Just give me 24 hours chief...

    Sometimes ya just gotta hit the blower switch and go for it.

    So here we go. With right foot planted firmly on the stage monitor, and every bit of minor pentatonic wankery I could muster. :D

    This week it's all Peavey. Rhythm was on the acoustic and the lead was on my Patriot with those wonderfully raw Super Ferrite pickups.

    @mjark I really liked that! freakin' great tone! (which guitar?) The delay gave a great atmospheric feeling that was very pleasing, and added a cool feel to the melodic and cascading lines.

    @knh555 That was cool. I think it had a real strong Neil Young vibe. I liked it a lot. The repeating figure at 2:30 was great.

    Good morning everyone. I missed last two jams as I was busy practicing. I hope I can reflect what I’ve learned into this one...maybe surprise you ;)

    @Ebidis wonderful, I really liked it the tones and control at the faraway frets :thumb:

    @mjark @knh555 great tones as usual. Each one of you have a unique style in delivering solid tones that I can tell just by listening. (@knh555 no video? :D)

    Same ole, same ole from me this week.
    So I layered in loads of "stuff" that might have got in the way a bit... oh well! Listen at your peril, oh, and turn the volume up a bit! :D

    @Mellencaster - Great tone and licks. I don't know about the sixths, but it sounds damn good to me. That tone .... delicious!

    @s5tuart - Sweet smooth gain always gets my attention. Nice use of bends and a melancholy vibe set the track off. Well played Sir!

    @knh555 - Nice use of rests, dynamics and vocal like licks. Almost a call and return style of jam, but more together and fluid. Nicely done!

    @mjark - Nicely played. You used the changes to your advantage and really worked them. Nice tone too. Sweet!

    @Ebidis - Great old school Rock vibe and licks. Raunchy tone, aggressive and full of pentatonic "wankery" (are Americans allowed to say that?) Very cool!

    After being inspired by @Ebidis, I dusted off my RR1 for the last part.
    "OOOPS" moments left in, for flavor :whistling:

    Thanks!
    The 11R and a Strat are easily obtained (though my Strat isnt stock anymore) but the fingers, no.
    If I gave them to you, how would I scratch? :eek: :D

    Hardly pathetic @bluestringer
    Very Robert Cray like in places with a tone to match. Sounded good to me.
