    Thanks Ron. Damn, had I known I'd have asked you to join in on vox. Maybe another tune soon. ;)

    Thanks Mike. Yeah, the guitar is fairly subdued but like so many songs I was familiar with but never actively listened to, this surprised me too when I discovered the cool guitar lines running underneath it all.

    Ha! Thanks Ghost!

    Thanks Mike! That's my slightly customized "Groove Clean" sound on the neck pickup that I go to so often for songs like this.

    Amazing. Thank you for the double listen. In fact, here's a second thank you!

    I'm with you on that one brother!

    Thanks Cranky. That is about the best word to describe that tune.

    Wow great playing and awesome song too... The very reverend Al Green is the coolest singer.
    Oh... Question about your guitar... Did it get assimilated by the Borg? What is the tech behind the bridge? And you know resistance is futile! Juz saying!

    Indeed he does!

    Ha! The guitar has been assimilated…by a Roland synth pickup! :D

    Thanks for having a listen.

    Thank you my friend. :)

    Thanks Hazy. It’s the same for my wife and I.

    Thanks gmann

    Thank you sir!

    Slicker than owl poop, as a southron friend of mine used to say (that's a compliment, for anyone that doesn't get it).

    I’m not familiar with owl poop but I’ve seen my share of pigeon and seagull poop. I can’t speak to the differences in viscosity between them so I’ll simply accept the compliment as is. :D

    Thanks E!

    Thanks Antstrat.

    Honestly, the hugest compliment would be that someone were inspired to learn any of the songs I post themselves. I hope by now it's apparent that I'm just an average guy in his basement having a go at a few tunes he likes. Nothing I post is out of the wheelhouse of many on this site. Sometimes a visual representation of a song is all one needs to have that lightbulb click on and learn a song they may have thought was out of reach. That's certainly been the case for me many times.

    Hmmm not sure about that, I find your a great player that is able to pickup songs and do them in a flash :thumb:, something im no where near, but yes watching your diversified covers do inspire me, although i wont do songs youve already done, cause well i could never do them justice as you do, keep bringing those awesome covers :thumb:

    Cheers

    Speed of learning is simply a function of learning lots of songs. The more you learn, the faster the next one will come. I used to learn songs painfully slow.

    I can’t think of too many songs I’ve done I’d classify as “advanced”. There’s a reason you don’t see me posting For the Love of God or Cliffs of Dover. :D

    Sure, I can play but there are a lot of next level guys posting in this sub-forum. I’m content being the Everyman appealing to those who just want to play some damn songs.

    Don't sell yourself short.:)

    YOU and your playing inspire me and I'm sure others to want to play guitar, the song is just a pleasant vehicle.

    I thought I had replied, I must've click off before hitting the post button.

    One evening my SIL and I were finding common musical ground with Rev Green in the lead...

    One thing I really like about the songs you present here is...so often you bring out a part that I fail to "hear", you bring out something new.

    We're going to have to change your name from Mouse to Silky, 'cause you're so smooth! :)
