    what a subtle start...and then it gets going!

    It reminds me of Jorma Kakounen's sweet picking.

    And we ended on much the same chord

    There is a perceived ease, for me, in your playing David. Dig the bluesy intro and the cool theme / melody and range of technique, octaves, harmonics, chromatic 16ths (?), etc. Very cool professor!

    What a cool opening!

    You have the lounge style down, and from me that's a compliment.

    I love your B part!

    Good one!

    For those of us that have played on real bandstands - like with sheet music you have to read - yeah, no do-overs.

    Like my entry.

    But I'm really impressed by everyone's work on this. Makes me proud of S-T.

    Feel free to nick... I have no shortage of ideas and I make up in quantity for what I lack in quality. :whistling: Thank you for listening to my tracks and for your critiques David.

    Thanks...I'm just part of a team of players that what to share - and learn - musical ideas as applied to the instrument we love, the guitar.

    We've all played Strats, that's how we met on this e-space, but in the PMW thread, it's all about sharing how to play music better.

    Frankly, I want to learn from any/everyone as much as I want to teach.

    you obviously put a lot of effort into this thread's musical entries. I'm only the teaching assistant this go-round, but gold star.

    I string my guitars with roundwound 10s. I think I read that you use roundwounds as well David. I like the string noise - says I'm playing a guitar.

    Yes, my Tele copy is set up w/ 10's, which I like, usually D'Addarios.

    But the round wound comment was about my heavier strung so-called jazzbox, a full acoustic floating pickup carved archtop.

    Many if not most folks would use flatwounds 12 or 13's on it. I tried 12 flats...twice over a 5 year period. It doesn't work for me, no matter how well players I dig can use them!

    i just caught this.

    No, I imported your backing track as is. I just jammed with your rhythm section for feel. Maybe the phrasing is behind the beat, but that's me following you.

    Well, it definitely sounds great! So smooth... sweet and buttery as a fresh beignet!

    And an example of brilliant playing and not following the rules.

    play with the thumb only? plant 3-4 fingers on the pickguard?

    I'd "correct" Wes if he was a beginner.

    I'm glad I was not. Since he could hear all this music in his head.

    Thanks for your take @davidKOS. So much mastery in one take that my words wouldn't do justice. Some licks reminded me of Steve Howe, of whom I'm a fan. But of course you have your own voice and I'm glad to hear it this time. That swing, phrasing and tone - impeccable.

    Thank you..that means a lot because I have been a Howe fan since the early 70's.

    I think he's one of the best and now often overlooked rock players ever.
