    Here's this week track, I hope you all can work with it because of SC keeps flagging the tracks I upload. Growing frustrated with SC.

    I'm just finishing up with finals, and I'm a prog geek. gonna have to give this a go. Have you tried bandcamp? less likely to get flagged there.

    Dear fellows, here is my track. Due to a lack of time for exercising, it´s a one shot after two playthroughs. I am totally aware that there are some warts in it, tonally as well as rythmically, but I had to let it as it is, and some passages I like.

    You hear my 2012 American Standard Tele via the Mesa Lonestar, recorded with a Cab Clone.



    I will now visit my daughter and grandchildren, staying there over night and watch the ESC with my daughter. Coming back tomorrow, I will have to pack my things for a trip to Cambridge (UK) from monday till Thursday, visiting my other daughter and attending the Cambridge Beer Festival.

    So I will not be able to listen to and comment on other tracks in time. Welcome @bricksnbeatles, I am looking forward to hear your track later on.

    I made it about in minute or so. You did much better than I. Have fun with with your kids and grandchildren. We're waiting for our first right now. My daughter was just admitted to the maternity facility a few minutes ago.

    I went back to it because I need to keep myself occupied until it's time to go to the hospital to be there when the baby arrives.

    I had no idea how to play over this till I listened to your playing, it still sounds hard,,,, I had to listen twice as I thought you were just part of the band lol. Good job, but you're merconium inspired so of course you will sound great lol, congratulations.

    Really nice tone, you were totally engaged in telling a "story". I love it.
    And I'm learning how to play over this even more. So this is Prog?

    @udoering You've done well enough to express yourself Ullrich , melodic and a nice fat tone! Enjoy your family holiday.
    @Mjark Mark, your tone and lines fit well. Imaginative track to the end.
    @knh555 Nice mixture of adding a second track .I get a 70s progressive rock vibe and nicely played track.

    I'm a sucker for a melody and couldn't find one.

    @Mjark Great ideas and nice playing within the chord structure. Congrats on your 1st grandchild!
    @udoering Nice tone throughout. I enjoyed that.
    @knh555 You nailed the progressive rock vibe and nice playing.
    @Mellencaster Not a mess, some cool lines and ideas from the get-go.

    fendrguitplayr Truly a progressive feel, Mike. Some sweet lines and tones.

    NWinther Nice build up to the end. I think you've found your path nicely with sweet effects

    You really settled in from the second section onward. Pretty gritty tone from you too!
