Hopefully I can get one done the next day or two. Feeling up and down with the flu since Friday
Get better soon buddy.
I'm hoping to get mine finished soon also.
Oh! No good. Get a shot next year! No way I could even listen to music last time I had the flu.
I hope you feel better soon.
I'll play. Just got a new recorder, a Zoom R8, using for the second time here. First time poster in Backing track threads.

Strat56 - Very nicely done.
Was able to lock myself away and get a track done for Week 3. Just previewed Week 4 and I will need to get on that one. It could be real fun!!!
I need to go back a lot of pages and listen to all the tracks everybody has submitted.
Week #3 EC Stratocaster into Audiobox recorded in Cakewalk Sonar 3
Here's track #4 for the month. "What the Funk"
The pre-loaded guitar noodling in the backing track gave me some troubles earlier on, but then I had a brainwave. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em as the saying goes.
As always any comments +/- are most welcome.
I hope you enjoy it.
Strat56 - Jack, that was a nice, worked out piece of playing guitar (repeated themes with variations for example). But my personal favourite are those chickenpicking-like staccato-muted notes you played now and then!
Jjpish68, so you also made your little intro to that track! I think I have heard that synth notes before, but I may be wrong. I like those few a little weird notes embedded in your otherwise melodic playing.
Phil your track is bubbling over with ideas: two additional rythm guitars (that bubbling wah), the synth, horns - wonderful. And, as far as I hear it, you also used more than one pentatonic scale!
Oh, nearly forgot: Mike, get well soon!
Both of you, thank you very much, appreciate the kind words.
I wanted to do more chicken picking but it wasn't happening for me on that song for some reason. Maybe it was my tone. Still learning about the built in "algorithms" in the R8 and haven't found or been able to set up a clean one that I like.
Anyway, thanks again.
I'll have to check all this new tracks a little later
Phil - I liked the woka woka wah stuff (the only thing it's good for) and the first horn part a lot. You buried or overwhelmed the the original track somewhat though. You're very creative, with your ever more lush arrangements!
Quite the intense tone and lines. I like the deep reverb as well.
When this backing track came up I instantly thought of giving it a Sly & The Family Stone / Isaac Hayes treatment.
I admit it was a bit hard getting the separation I wanted across all the instruments, including those in the backing track. The bass line for instance sounds like it was recorded by James Jamerson with those infamous dead strings of his. The drums also with the heavy kick drum in combination with the softer rimshots in the verse section (the 8 bars of A) made it interesting to mix. Plus I had to do a fair bit of bouncing on my own tracks, which meant it ended up a bit more Phil Specter / Wall of Sound that I would've liked. Anyway I had fun doing it.
strat56 really nice track I enjoyed that!Welcome aboard
I liking this Joe I'm with Ullrich the weird few notes work with this and where some really nice lines in your playing track
Very Nice Phil You made this track your own .Very creative!Your style playing and tone has changed with your new amp which I like a lot ...I hoping this your new amp
Well I wasn't feeling this 4th track like some of you ,I did some experimenting cause really I had nothing
Baritone? I'm tripping!
