    Phil, nice work in the background with the "Skank" and the "Baritone" - whatever this may be :). You also had some nice ideas and lines on the solo guitar. Can you add some reverb or delay with your BR600? A little of that can improve the sound.

    I agree with Ullrich on the background, it sounded nice .

    Phil, I don't like suggesting ideas because I don't feel qualified to say so but this one I would like to give you a friendly suggestion,I would've backoff on the lead playing and pick your spots on this track .Sometimes it is just best to let the bt take the load , especially on this bt ,it's repetitive from start to end .It's something I'm realizing that I need to do more on my tracks .

    Repetition isn’t always a negative. Feel is what makes a musical passage good/bad.

    I definitely like the change in the dynamics on your track, it flows with the track and the baritone fills the lead breaks in between .Nicely done

    Hey everybody!!! Been pretty busy past couple weeks at my new job. After 2 months shy of 2 years trying to find a "good" job I landed one. Working at the Beach everyday, making decent coin again, in charge of 3 departments a lot of responsibility a good staff working in all areas. Just learning where everything is and trying to make things better than they were when I got there...

    Anyway I got a chance to pick up a guitar today for a little while for the first time in what seems like forever. Started with week #4 and hopefully can work them all out before the month ends.

    I really like your version Joe! It has Livin' On A Prayer flavour to it. I'll have to keep Mrs from listening to this.She use to be big on Bon Jovi or I'll never will hear the end of him!;)

    Joe, congrats on the new job. It sounds like a great find. Really enjoyed the tracks; especially week 4. Have to agree with Mike on track 1, you kicked in another gear at the end.

    Phil, the second version really sounds better.

    jjpish86, week #4 was really wild; on week #1 I like that though you used a crunch rock guitar sound your playing sounded very much country-like. Nice pinched harmonics. On week #2 I would have preferred a less distorted sound, but you had wonderful lines in there.

    Hey, amigos! Been off on some adventures and such; every now & then, I've been listening in and y'all are doing good stuff! Finally had a chance to sneak in a little work on one of the BT's - couldn't resist some JJ Cale...so here's a version for you:
    https://soundcloud.com/colotexardo/tdpri-june-twang-call-me-the-breeze
    ...all the usual suspects; squier CV into garageband with a BF super; a tweed deluxe and a vox emulated. nothing fancy and couldn't resist singing along either.

    Did my usual mini-tour this summer, which includes a benefit gig I do in Colorado (near Boulder) for a friend who is doing some great medical research. I put together a band with long time friends in Colorado and some folks that come from Texas and we all have some great fun. (photo attached from gig, in the red shirt, armed with trusty tele...) Also did a coffee house type gig down near C Springs. About to take the dogs for a walk, check in with y'all later.
