    I should get back to my old system of micing the amp and recording a separate audio track. Sounds a bit crap using just the phone.

    Tele sounds terrific. Song sounds so familiar but can't pick it. I thought tone was really good.

    My previous clip above yours was just Guitar IbanezRG>>>MI Audio Super Crunch Box>>Laney IRT Studio amp 1watt setting Boost on>>Mesa 1x12 Cab>>Zoom H2n recorder>>DAW added some compression. Plus I have TC Flashback delay using a Paul Gilbert Toneprint & a Boss seven band EQ in amps FX loop.

    @Mouse should have had this one in the bag as the bands name is related to his forum name:D

    This is more of a part than a riff. It's a snippet from the guitar part played under the vocals of this song. Rather an obscure song too. As a clue I thought I would do the riff from another song by this artist.

    Every kind of People Sly and the Family Stone and the great cover by Robert Palmer.

    I didn't even realise it's a Sly cover! Must have a listen. Yes, Palmer's version is fantastic.

    Indeed! I like how they used steel drums for the main riff in Palmers version!
