    I enjoyed your track, Don. I'm a big fan of the J-45 and I liked the sort of relaxed feel you recorded here.

    I agree, Ullrich, this was kind of hard to work with - but I thought your version was really good - reminded me of the Peter Green era of Fleetwood Mac. Nice stuff.

    There was some real good stuff here - I was kind of hearing it like a sound track for a movie - the part where the characters are hanging out on the beach or in a park and starting to fall in love or something? I enjoyed it.

    I enjoyed all of it - I especially like the mandolin lead part. Nice playing.

    btw, sorry for multiple posts for feedback, haven't figured out how to quote more than one post at a time...

    Gentlemen, I had started to record something on the last track, but getting a little ill I think I will not be able to finish it. So I decided to listen to Your new tracks now.

    Mjark, I like the breaking sound of your guitars you use recently. On this track, the opening figure with the two double stops is very interesting and followed by a decent playing with some good ideas.

    Mike, a very dense guitar work, seemed to grab me from the start and hold me tight till the end.

    Teletimetx, a good idea to arrange it with three different types of guitar. I like what you played. While listening I had the idea it would have been nice if you let the single coil play on in the background when coming in with the humbucker guitar and maybe even let the acoustic play it´s chords again.

    Phil, you really made an instrumental out of the track. Nice arranged, the different stringed instruments sound well together. A very good work!

    Thanks Ullrich. I'm not sure what you mean by breaking sound but I like it.

    Well, it´s not really clean anymore, it is starting to break up, getting saturated, a little dirt, the power tubes start compressing etc. That is exactly the sound I love most.

    Nice Ullrich ! Great tone from your gear and no noodling sounding at all , just some good playing . Thanks for your comment on mine , I should've went with my single track version but I was feeling a little rebellious when I posted it.

    Ullrich - this is my favorite of your tracks so far. I think sometimes we do better when we're not trying so hard? Anyhow, like it a lot very good stuff. Played a couple times at work. Thanks for posting.

    Udoering, I have to second the comment by teletimetx, this is my fave thing you have done thus far as well!!! I absolutely love the #2 position Strat sound at the beginning. Your playing is really spot on with the track!!! Very, very good job!! I been out of pocket and will be for the next couple of days. When get settled I will listen back to all that I have missed...

    You must have had the Rockin' Pneumonia & Boogie Woogie Flu! It is indeed a very nice piece of work.

    I have to second everyone else's opinion on this track. Very good and right on theme with the track. Lots of good stuff.

    Gentlemen (where are the women, by the way?), thank you all for your esteeming comments. I really wasn´t fishing for compliments when I said it was noodling. I felt it this way, uninspired. I had some flaws in it (the really bad parts were cutted out), but on the other side I noticed I had some functioning "speed" parts in it (compared with my general playing speed).

    The sound: no strat, but the Blackout Tele with the Area T´s in it. My Mesa has a vacation at the repairman, so I used the Superchamp X2 with a 1x12 Cannabis Rex cab. The clean part at the beginning is channel 1. The slightly distorted sound comes from a bassmann model I put on slot 15, and somehow it sounds very different from the already implemented bassman model in an earlier slot. Some digital mojo I guess, maybe a kind of malfunction, but a pretty nice one.
