Sounds good Omar. The use of reverb works well with you playing. Cool!
Beautiful bell-like tone via your finger picking Kevin. Very nice melodic riffin'. She sure is pertie!
I’ll keep it brief this week because I have a lot of songs to learn.
@roger@pennyflic – That’s really lovely. So nice to hear some acoustic guitar, and your arrangements are always super tasteful. Extremely well executed too.
@heltershelton – Always great when you join in. Very nicely played sir, and 1,000 times more polished than your down-the-phone recordings. Powerful and heartfelt.
@Raimonds – Interesting to hear how the composer hears a number. You’re an extremely good player, but it’s the melodies that shine brightest on this. Very nice indeed.
@CigBurn – This track is proving popular! I miss your considered aesthetic, of which this is a very good example. Exceptionally delicate and melodic. Hope you join in more.
@mjark – I always think of you as ‘considered’ musician, and this track has brought out the best of that side of your playing. Erik Satie would have approved.
@Mellencaster – Very tasteful and assured. Your trademark chime suits this track very well, and there’s not a note in the wrong place. Well done.
@Alan L Cole – Well, it sounds ‘proficient’ to me, to say the least. It certainly brings a touch of Knopfler to your approach. I think you’ve also beefed-up the low end of the mix?
@dogletnoir – Strat-Talk’s most distinctive voice goes for ‘pretty’! You absolutely succeed in your admirable aim, but I’d still know it was you from any single bar of this.
@montemerrick – 1. It’s a brave man who starts ahead of the track, but you pull that off and deliver some very sweet harmonized lines. 2. Less straightforward, but no less effective.
@Omar – 1. You are so stepping up to the plate these days! Your phrasing on this is really spot-on, and a real pleasure to listen to. Very tuneful.
@Chipper – Welcome! Hope you’ll stick around. That’s some very nice mando playing. If Kevin dragged you here, we should thank you both for enlarging the group.
@duzie – This was great from note one. You might not think of it this way but you write extremely memorable tunes, and these lines are hauntingly beautiful.
@knh555 – 1. What a pleasing combination! I hope the apple wine helped the notes flow, because you play together very nicely.
@Omar – 2. The fact you are capable of producing a second good take that is different from the first is impressive.
@Thrup'ny Bit – In lesser hands this could have been messy, but you are clever enough to make the quite complicated arrangement work. Love the title and artwork too.
@knh555 – 2. Nicely understated and melodic. This really floats along, and your two parts intertwine very pleasingly. Most effective.
@Dare1 – I hear no ‘flopping’, just some very melodic lines, some of which remind me of Jennifer Juniper by Donovan. I really liked your use of repeating phrases against changing chords.
Nice phrasing and melodic playing Dare1. Sweet tone and delivery!
I thought I'd have a go. Been feeling awful recently with a cold (?) and the most annoying cough in the world. This track transported me to the summer!
I just got over a week-long flu myself. I agree that this is an uplifting track help transition back to the living.
The opening figure was really cool.
Thanks for your comments gentlemen.
@montemerrick- Monte your playing has been very fluid of late and your transition on your changes has been very smooth .You've been wood shedding on your absence from here and it shows.
@simoncroft-Simon, you've ventured where most of us would not dare , to sing.Your efforts payed off well!
@Dare1- The intro is quite good ,followed by a sweet phrasing all through.
thanks Mike! well, I've been playing as much as ever, but if there's a reason for any improvement (and for the love all that is scared please let there be improvement!) it's maybe because a) that's really the only direction i can go at this point and b) in my own slow way i've been trying to put into practice @fezz parka's advice and look (with my ears, that is) at the chords, play them first, and not just launch in from the key. also, about a month ago, as an exercise, i decided to play every scale, major or minor pent, blues, the various modes using a major scale pattern as the starting point - just when i thought i knew the fretboard i looked down and it was a whole 'nuther ballpark... the multilayered aspect of the fretboard is a constant thrill that my poor old man fingers will never be able to express - like chasing the big bang, or riding bmx with my grandson. also after decades of using only open tunings i'm finally in love with EADGBE. of course, i'm still the same old awkward dope, i know that, but i am enjoying the expansive view, even if i am not able to do anything particularly good with it.
@Alan L Cole Thank you! I have no clue how I managed to get that tone, because I keep on changing amp’s settings
@simoncroft Thank you so much! It’s my pleasure that you liked my tracks
@Dare1 Many thanks! I’m still way behind you vey nice nice take, I loved that fast slide
@s5tuart lovely tone and playing! get well soon
My apologies in advance but I did another one .
This with a poor Jimi style vibe
Beautiful piece @Raimonds ...tried to do it justice
Just getting caught up here but absolutely dig all the different takes on this.
How cool is that intro! Nice one. Monster guitar solo starting at 1:06.
I write down associated settings for each track I do, just in case Omar.
Wow, beautiful, sweet Jimi vibe. Nice Duzie!
That is unique and very powerful Sam!
Appreciate that Alan! I’m kinda new to these challenges and my first instinct is to wail the pentatonic everywhere. I’m going through everyone’s now and am very impressed with all the unique takes on it.
I liked @Raimonds composition so much I did an extended version of my take. A little more polish this time round.
It's late here, so I'll listen to any other new takes tomorrow.l
Outstanding Simon! Great arangement. Love the synth and that gorgeous guitar tone and play. Your vocals are a very cool addition. I believe you've "got what it takes." Bravo!
