    I just listened to "Moonglow"- beautiful playing doglet. I love the way you play on standards. This was an excellent solo - really fit perfectly.

    Nice hypnotic groove doglet. You played really funky here. What is the effect at like the 3:00 mark? Is that the Micro Vibe? Cool!

    Hey, doglet-Buddy

    Moonglow made me smile..It was almost like your guitar was speaking the lyrics :) .

    This is sort of a related question-is that an example of chord tonal soloing where the lead is hinting back at ones common to the rhythm?

    Just listened to 40 Acres and a Mule, very nice! Somehow reminded me of a John Mayer tune of which I can't remember the name right now(I'm on the side that loves John Mayer's Continuum and Live Trio album by the way). Very catchy little pentatonic melodies. Thanks for sharing this Dogletnoir :)

    stratosdane, you're quite welcome !
    mshivy, thanks ! That is the Micro Vibe you're hearing on 40 Acres; i'm really enjoying it at the moment.
    stevierayfan91, thanks for listening. When i learn a standard that has words, i learn those as well as the chords and melody, and yes, i was really doing my best to try to stay tonal and outline the chord changes in the solo on Moonglow, foregoing my usual leanings towards odd and dissonant note choices. It's such a sweet tune, it just didn't seem appropriate there. i think i'm making up for it a bit on this next one, though. :)
    wiry, glad you enjoyed 40 Acres; i happen to love both Continuum and Try, so if it reminds you of any of that stuff, i'm flattered.

    And, since it's STrange Thursday, here's tonight's tune:
    Riddim Fix

    A kind of reggae groove, using KT again... gosh, i do love this guitar.

    Excellent! Totally cool groove, bass line and lead melody.
    Around the 4:15 mark you remind of Holdsworth with that flurry that you then resolve. And the Microvibe really fits in w/ your playing. You get a nice straight tone, but it's cool when you add that effect. You are a fantastic, unique guitarist and writer, doglet.

    love the groove, dog .
    And your solo around 4.00 when you get even more psychodelic.

    I think the second take was more fluid, although I like both the same way.

    Hey Dogletnoir,

    The second take of Riddim fix, I love the high bend around 1.33 very expressive! A cool tune, with a lot interesting notes happening in between, creating a lot of flow and dynamic even with the steady rhythm behind it.

    As for the first take, I think it is as good as the second take even without the percussion/drum behind it. I don't personally prefer which one over the other but it seemed that the first one is somehow more "laid back" with a little bit of tremolo bar stuff going on(am I right about that tremolo bar thing?) which reminded me a little bit of Jeff Beck. The second one has more dynamic although the first one didn't lack any dynamic at all.

    All in all, both solid takes and what a lovely tune. Thanks for sharing, Dogletnoir :) It always feels great to stop by at this thread and listen to your tunes!

    Thanks, rafa, and wiry!
    There was definitely some subtle trem action going on in the first take of Riddim Fix.
    Jeff Beck is probably one of my all-time favourite guitarists, so once again, i'm honoured just to be mentioned in the same breath as him.
    i was happy with the first take playing wise, but then i wanted to hear the drum part a bit more strong in the mix, so i went for it again, and of course, i played a bit differently once that part was more prominent.
    Glad you enjoyed both takes.
    And now it's Spacey SaTurday again, so i'm playing the Duo-Sonic in NST, Frippertronics style tonight.

    This is cool doglet- I like the way you build the sounds.
    The chords remind me of Pat Metheny meets the Who for some reason.
    The note flurries at like the 5 minute mark are super cool- they just tumble out.
    Fantastic and original player you are, doglet.

    Always love your playing Dogletnoir, as with Dawn Wall, it's very spacey indeed! I would never come up with note choices like that, those are really unique and interesting! I love the little melodies being played freely but still maintaining the integrity of the song definitely very tasty :)

    Thanks for sharing this Dogletnoir :)

    Thanks for listening and for all the kind comments, my friends !

    For the sake of completeness in this thread, here's something i recorded a few days ago for S-T Improv Challenge #92:
    Mermaid's Song
    https://soundcloud.com/frostyjr2/mermaids-song
    linky for mobile>
    https://soundcloud.com/frostyjr2/mermaids-song

    And finally, since it's STandards Sunday once again:
    Let's Fall In Love
    https://soundcloud.com/frostyjr2/lets-fall-in-love
    linky>
    https://soundcloud.com/frostyjr2/lets-fall-in-love

    A Harold Arlen tune from 1933. It was heavily featured in the 1954 film 'It Should Happen to You', which starred Judy Holliday and Jack Lemmon.
    It has been recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Shirley Bassey, Lee Wiley, Art Garfunkel and Diana Krall, among many others.
    My version is not the most smooth, but still soothing, i hope. :)
    i was playing KT on both tracks, btw.

    'Let's fall in love' is one of those great old songs that just makes you smile inside, and you certainly do it justice here, nice tone and really nicely played.
