    Yoiur tone is stingin'! Perfect for the song. I liked the ascending runs you did at the intro.

    Heh. Thanks, and yeah, it's kind of raw, but it more or less what I was going for, to go along with the ragged playing! Those 2 at the beginning showed up the time before that take (i.e., next to last time I was trying to get through those 5 go-arounds), and it was the only thing I remembered from that take, lol. Wish I'd done a better job of it!

    So much good stuff again this month. I'm hoping for more time next month but that's all I have for now - hope! Still impressed by the variety here. Lotsa fun, too. Thanks to Mellen- and everyone else for doing the grunt work to kick things off, and then the words of encouragement along the way.

    It's still October so I thought I'd have a quick go! First time using garageband - just recorded one take and here it is. Played using a 59 LP reissue through the small fender combo in garageband with vol and output maxed out, no effects.

    Dude. You guys are all awesome.

    I just stumbled onto these threads whilst trolling the forum waiting for some code to compile and I'm seriously inspired.

    I'm not good, even remotely, but I've made a goal that starting no later than January I want to post something I played on SoundCloud at least once per month, in the hopes of forcing myself to polish things as much as I'm able, and to have a way to track progress.

    I hope to be participating in my own meager way in these threads soon. :)

    jjpish68 - Firstly I'd like to say welcome back. It's good to have you around. :D

    Man, that first track was smokin'. Love the atmosphere it projects, smokey nightclub late at night. Fantastic. :cool:

    I got blisters on my fingers just listening to your second track. Really good phrasing and execution. :D

    Alesplin feel free to jump in anytime you like. Like Mellencaster said, this is a very friendly forum and a great learning experience. Until I started posting here back in Feb, I'd never played anything of my own for anyone, let alone posting it to the internet.

    So don't be daunted, be encouraged. It's a lot of fun (and a little addictive).
