Impressive chops man !
I really enjoyed that
I love it Alan!This could be a theme to any modern western movie.
Thank you Mike. My inspiration was your beautiful acoustic version. I don't listen to other submissions until I have one of mine under my belt so I am not influenced but I have no problem in trying something different after that. I used my '72 walnut Gibby ES-325 on it. Thank you for the inspiration Mike.
Thank you for posting @montemerrick. Here's mine:
Artistic interpretation Stuart - just my opinion. I tend to bludgeon my listener with my tracks .
No need to thank me .Thank @s5tuart , that's were I got my inspiration .
@duzie - Well don't stretch them out - they sound great! Very nice tone and phrasing. I like the way you let the backer breath. That's important for this kind of track I believe. Nice!
@Omar - (3) Experimenting with reverb - adds a different dimension. A more aggressive tone here and a cool collection on this backer.
@mjark - Beautiful dance with the BT Mark. Dialed back that rich tone to a sweet spot for this track. Super!
@simoncroft - Very nice Simon. Love you tone and your inspired riffs (1:48, ex)!
You're right (it's been a long day). Thank you Stuart and Mike!
@Alan L Cole - the heartbreak is palpable... i know you'll say "Acting!" to which I reply "Brilliant!" seriously, love your attitude, appraoch, attack and tone - plus a story is told...
@Ebidis - nice slow jam, power ballad with a bowed feeling... maniacal sad violinist... beautiful tone, simple, sweet and effective!
@Thrup'ny Bit - funny title, i was just using the stones song of the same-ish name to demonstrate the idea of a rock band stumbling around trying to keep up with the latest R&B... yours is nothing like that! Extremely cool contrasting theme of old school surf/eddie cochran ballad against a more modern world that has yet to outrun the disasters that made nihilistic rebellion so meaningful in the first place... you packed a lot into those 2.5 minutes!
@roger@pennyflic - another scorcher! love your runs in the lower registers! and the octaviator (or whatever that is) is mega-cool! really nice feeling, sure-footed!
@Omar - the vibe you create is super cool - and gets groovier as you go! reminds me of plenty of solos i've enjoyed from all kinds of indie rockers passing through on the west coast circuit... check out Mary Timony - she's one of my favorites though the thread on her music that i started in 2015 was universally hated. lol.
@knh555 - that's some tonal delight! love your dynamic picking technique. also nearly baroque feeling! very Prog. the second one begins with that low bass and i'm already digging it. sinister metal dystopia - operation:mindcrime with a touch of Mahler.
@Mellencaster - i'm certain this is what i meant to play. intelligent americana is my weakness... so of Laurs Joamet tops the list! and you've got some of that vibe, plus your own dang self. killer tone.
@Omar - on this trimmed version i see that your feeling your way through it as much as thinking - even in these jams i think that's important. i think we are studying and practicing in all that we do and playing without feeling, without finding meaning is bad practice. but you play for keeps. also, loving the sonic blue sounds that you and @knh555 are bringing to the table!
@s5tuart - simply wonderful. totally dig it. totally.
@Mansonienne - cool melodic take with a lamenting feel that is hitting the soul ballad vibe very nicely...by the end you had moments that felt like you were playing down on a bayou somewhere - needs some accordion!!!
@bluestringer - that's what i thought, basically a minor blues with a III chord in there... or at least that's what i think i thought, i don't know what you thought! lol but you've got a good feeling soulful vibe and Robert Cray-like gritty something more... sounded great!
@Mellencaster - your acoustic take is also wonderful... hats off!
@duzie - another beautiful bluesy take with a rock and roll broke down stagger somewhere between Gram Parsons and the Black Crowes... heart on sleeve...
@Omar- each take is more powerful. nice one again Omar!
@Alan L Cole - love the tone on that guitar. super much! great playing, venturing into the terrain of one of my favorites, Gabor Szabo. But still rock and roll to me. Beautiful.
@mjark - very beautiful! a touch of the manouche. elegant and lush and simple and full. real darn good, in the words of my people. listening again for clues and tips and such. (during second listen codename: elsie came in the room, I said it was a gentleman in Baltimore playing, said she had thought it was me and that she liked it. i know that seeking external validation is a trap, but let me tell you: we both have reason to feel highly complimented...)
@simoncroft - My friend, you play the psychedelic country rock as a heron returns to his pond.
Dang, there was really nice playing from everyone. I appreciate the kind words too... think i might go play this one some more now...

Tell her thank you!
A truer arrow hath not been shot...
Someone else who uses the TONE knob as it should be used! Dark and broody take there Simon with a secret agent/western mix that's really quite involving.
That's a great effect!!!! Nice playing too.
A real attention grabber from the start. Great tone too.
@Alan L Cole - You have a unique approach to this track. Very nice bends, hammers-on and pulls-off.
@montemerrick - Very soothing tone. Lovely transition that starts at 1:35ish.
@Ebidis - Sweet intro. It's amazing how you switch from simple playing into more aggressive way.
@roger@pennyflic - Wonderful take! You make me feel jealous
@knh555 - Two great takes indeed. Is it because you've used the Sonic Blue?
@Mellencaster - I was interrupted several times while I was listening to your take. Very enjoyable and pleasing to the ears.
@s5tuart - Man..I'm speechless..Amazing take in all aspects! The acoustic guitar has added more sweetness to the track.
@Mansonienne - Great and flawless take Andrea! Simple and easy. Well done!
@bluestringer - Very nice track. Nice way of manipulating the notes.
@Mellencaster (track no.2) - ¡Olé! That was amazing. It sounded so Spanish
@duzie - Wonderful and soulful take. Great job!
@Alan L Cole (track no.2) - What a take! I should go back to my acoustic lol. Amazing playing Alan
@mjark - Impressive! Great choice of notes between the changes. The last part is well played. Great take Mark!
@simoncroft - You're the master of words. Lovely tone and sweet phrases. Very well played
@Thrup'ny Bit - Please forgive me, I accidentally skipped your track
Impressive production! I loved the idea of two different tones, each guitar answers the other.
Thank you so much Alan
lol send me a link to the thread. I'll look up Mary Timony for sure. Thank you Monte for your kind comment
I always try to let my feelings guide me through a track, you can see it on my face
Thank you again Monte. I appreciate your words
Killer tone you got on this one!
