    I got to listen to "Snow Day"; really nice groove on that track. You kinda sound like a bluesier Pat Metheny on that one. I really like the solo lines toward the latter part of the tune, at like the 5 to 6 minute mark.

    hey, buddy
    I really loved this track and your style on it..Also, I thought Bentley-Beagle's breaths as he listened was cute because it shows he appreciates music :) .

    Also, feel free to PM me if you need someone to listen-I didnt realize you had some of same ailments..I have struggled with early onset diagnosed depression from childhood on. I think from a combo of things then.

    that may be why i was blessed with such a gift in abilties of helping traumatized/scared doggies recover.?..they can tell I understand and want to build them up.

    I am grateful for the generosity that here has bestowed on me too. Those gestures often made me smile /lifted my spirits.

    Working on paying it forward as able!!

    Snow Day, Bluer Shade, How long, just what I needed today. Beautiful playing my friend, so laid back and enjoyable...

    Lamb was a bit of a departure from what I'm used to, and a very nice complement to the mellow pieces. Love this thread.

    My thanks to you all for listening and taking the time to leave comments.
    There are so many great players around here, it really is inspirational.

    It's STrange Thursday, and tonight i have the odd idea to let you all see a bit
    of how i work. This is an idea being developed over the course of 3 takes.

    Hello dogletnoir,

    I flipped a coin a few times to decide what take to listen to, & take 3 won LOL !

    Your tone was great, & you seemed to sit-easy with your choice of tune, with a laid-back easy-going vibe happening that was never over-stated. Being take-3, it seemed that you had your intro, solo, & outro well planned & executed. Your solo was great, never reaching too far outside the tune, & the faster single-note playing never a worry. With all improvisations, there's always going to be a few "fluffy" notes, but as a whole, you did extremely well & I enjoyed the listen. Thanks for posting.

    Cheers,

    Rastus

    OK, the opening riff is great. I listened to the 3rd take. I think this solo is really good.
    You did the man a nice tribute here, but the playing still has your original style and feel on it. I think I know who's licks I'm going to steal next….Yours Doglet!

    Hi Dog
    I also took the 3 take for now.
    Very good sound and playing. Your tone are getting very consistence
    Nice to hear some smooth jazz from you.
    It´s a good turnaround to jam over.
    Your backing could be used for a challenge thread !?

    HNPD (even though I'm a bit late) nice to see you enjoying your new fuzzface! Loved the track and the interesting thing is not just the way you phrase things in a unique way, but even your fuzz tones are different compared to say something I would use. Keep up the awesome work!

    Thanks for the kind comments, folks! i really had fun working that one out, so i'm glad you enjoyed it.
    The 3rd take is the best one to listen to all by itself, although there are some interesting moments in take 1 that i like. :)

    Anyhow, on to tonight's Spacey SaTurday tracks (yes, more than one again, and you'll see why in a minute).
    Both of these tunes were recorded with a Classic Vibe Duo-Sonic in NST.
    [​IMG]

    NST is New Standard Tuning, the tuning used by Robert Fripp when he teaches the Guitar Craft seminars.
    It extends the range of the guitar in both directions, going from low to high C G D A E G.
    It gives a nice consonant overtone series to the instrument, and i like playing in NST a lot.
    It isn't great for standard guitar repertoire, but it opens up some different possibilities for playing in other styles.
    The shorter scale of the Duo-Sonic helps to compensate for the increased tension on the neck caused by the NST pitches on the higher strings.

    This is my 'Flippertronix' style, a takeoff on Frippertronics filtered through my own weird sensibilities:

    You've already heard that kind of thing from me before, so now here's the 2nd track:

    Anoushka

    Again, both tracks are in NST. Hope you have enjoyed this little trip.

    on "Anoushka" you really combined the Fripp style stuff w/ your more melodic playing and it worked really well. I like that you did alot of soloing on this one. This really showcased the Dogletnoir style - it has ambience and atonal playing but also had a sweet melodic side. Good stuff Doglet.

    mshivy, sole comment honours go to you once again!
    Thank you so much for being such a good listener, and always finding the time to
    leave an encouraging word!

    And now, since it's STandards Sunday, time for another jazz tidbit...
    Another Harold Arlen tune from the early 1930s, first recorded by Cab Calloway.
    It was subsequently waxed by the Boswell Sisters with the Dorsey Brothers band,
    Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and even George Harrison (on 'Brainwashed').
    One of my personal favourite versions is the quartet recording by Thelonious Monk,
    from his 1967 LP 'Straight No Chaser'.
    Coincidentally, today just happens to be the 110th anniversary of Harold Arlen's birth.
    He was born 2/15/1905. Something told me to pick this tune to play... :)

    Used Sakura on this one, and that had me playing a bit differently...
    that and listening to all the submissions for ST Challenge #119.
    i got a little more... 'bendy' than usual, LOL.

    So soothing to get my sunday standard shot from you, my friend
    Sakura has a exceptional wonderful clean strat sound.

    Doglet, I really dig when you play the old stuff. (I like your originals too of course.)
    This was some beautiful playing- the guitar is really the vocal here, and it's exquisite. People like Hendrix, George Benson, Mark Knopfler, and Pat Metheny can play guitar like it's someone singing- so vocal and eloquent. It's something I could never do, but you can, and you really shined here. Bravo-

    stratosdane, thanks!
    Sakura has a set of CMD 'Dipper' pickups, and like Mayer's Black1, she has exceptional tone in that #2 position. When i want that sound, she's my go-to girl, no other guitar i have does it quite as well. :)
    mshivy, glad you are enjoying the old standards.
    i was doing a bit of tonal experimentation in the middle section of the tune, and i'm not convinced it fully worked this time around, but if we don't try new things we can't grow as players, right?
    As always, thank you for the compliments. i will keep at it!

    Now for tonight's STrange Thursday offerings.
    First up, my warm-up. This is a demo of Alnico II pickups i just recorded for OLDGREYGIT.
    He wanted to hear what they sound like, so this is my Seymour Duncan Alnico II equipped Tele.
    Brazilian Wax
    https://soundcloud.com/frostyjr2/brazilian-wax
    linky for mobile>
    https://soundcloud.com/frostyjr2/brazilian-wax
    The track is a medley of 2 Bossa Nova tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim: Corcovado and Meditation.
    i should have warmed up for my warmup, though. It's a little rough at the start
    but it is really more about the sound of the pickups than about my playing for this one.

    Then there's this:
    The Day After The Day Before
    https://soundcloud.com/frostyjr2/the-day-after-the-day-before
    linky>
    https://soundcloud.com/frostyjr2/the-day-after-the-day-before
    This is the Duo-Sonic in NST, actually, even though it's got more of a jam vibe than a Flippertronix feel to it. i like NST... a lot. :)
    This song is me trying to see things from my dog's perspective. It makes me happy that he's happy to see me when i come home from work, but i often wonder what his day is like while he waits for me...

    And i'm not done yet... hot off the MP3 recorder, Alnico II tele again:
    Funky Sandwich

    Droppin' the beat, and sharing a sandwich with my homegirl Taylor Swift. :)

    I got to listen to "Brazilian Wax"; you really have a clear, articulate voice on the guitar. It's in your touch and the way you snap notes. I guess you might have developed this because you usually play pretty clean - you rely more on your fingers for your sound. The Alnico II's sound real good, but you always get a good tone- it's in your hands really.

    The day after the day before was pretty solid, sounding good. funky sandwich was sounding pretty good too, really getting into the groove on that one.

    It's been a while since I last visit this page! Anyway I just listened to Funky Sandwich and I really enjoyed it Dogletnoir, thanks for sharing! The song sparks an image of a very cool guy with a hat, a coat, and leather boots, walking down the street on a cold night and he was mesmerizing people around him with his coolness, how cool is that!?

    Thanks for the kind comments, folks!
    wiry, maybe the reason that guy was so cool was because it was -18c that day.
    He was beyond cool, he was COLD! :D

    And so, on to tonight's Spacey SaTurday tracks!

    First up, a little bit of KT in Eb tuning, dedicated to rrben29:

    https://soundcloud.com/frostyjr2/crazy-eights-1st-take

    i know it sounds sort of like everything else, but this one is featuring a new toy, an Ibanez (gasp!) RG852. 8 strings, no djent... yet. :)
    [​IMG]
    i'm still figuring out what i'm doing with it, but i think it has some potential for my own thing. We'll see... :)

    Love "From Dusk 'Till Dawn"..had me snapping along..The main riff/theme you go back to is just so catchy. It makes me as if I were transported to a club listening to Wes Montgomery, or Charlie Christian, just jamming along to the music.

    Btw I saw on SC that you used a blues driver and Ds1 on this one... holy crap you get tones that I wouldn't typically associate with those pedals...if anything I wouldn't even think you had a ds-1 at all on during the track. How do you use those if I may ask?

    Also amazed at "crazy eights" I honestly wouldn't know what to do with 8 strings..in my opinion I can barely handle 6 lol Nicely done!

    From dusk:Its swinging so gentle . Can´t stop tapping along. What a unpredictable and wonderful chord progression at the end of the chorus. Also the break is a nice surprise.

    Crazy eight: Very groovy and mysterious.
    Hate to say it , but that Ibanez has a great (humbucker?) sound.
    Does it have a whammy, too ?
