    Both tracks are beautifully played. Very sweet and passionate soloing on both especially the clean version. Just beautifully played JCL50!

    JCL50 I really quite liked both versions very much and each do have their own merits .I would lean to the clean version but that's what appeals to me now but nothing wrong with the fuzzy one either .You've played a lovely melodic and soulful take.

    Great pacing and playing lends to a nice blues moody atmospheric piece. Your soloing fit nicely within the backers framework Niels providing a great vibe. Oh, and cool trailing outro - maybe it's me but I always think that is a cool thing to add - maybe some insight into another subconscious take on the track.

    I doubled the track for my submission as I thought it was too short but I really like the idea of two version submissions like JCL50's and Mike's.

    I don't mind the short tracks, they're simpler to complete :) especial on doing two versions. I have a hard enough time with one track every week :D

    @JCL50 : Alan again was faster and nailed it:
    I too liked the fuzzy version, but I liked the clean version even more - although I wouldn´t call the sound "clean". Let me ask you how you recorded that?

    @NWinther : lovely, some parts are truely great.

    NWinther : sadness/melancholy well transcribed.

    It'true that my clean sound already has a little grit.
    For recording the path was :
    Telecaster -> CS3 comp -> ODR-1 -> Carbon copy -> Marshall TSL 601 clean channel miked with a (cheap) condenser mike. Reverb added in my daw.

    By the way, I had lowered the backing track level for recording. I've realised after uploading that the overall level is too low. Sorry about that (I'm new at recording and using a daw).

    Wow, if you felt lost with this backer I'm going to lose my way on the next one. I thought the intro was cool at the guitar work good throughout. I think I detected your angst with the track later into it (maybe that gave you some freedom to let loose?) and as exhibited by the abrupt ending but I think it's a lot better than you think it might be telefunken! I'm going to relisten but I think I'm right.

    Update:

    Yep, on relisten, I'm right - it's pretty good IMHO.

    This track was different from the "average Telefunken" track, I think. You played slower than usual, maybe you were feeling your way into the track, and maybe you didn´t know at the start where you would end. Like the others, I think you played that very well. Your playing reflects the slightly ambiguous harmonic chracter of the track.

    Nicely played and the effects choice really suit well that theme.

    More effects would have been fun. I should probably learn how to do that violining gimmick that everyone loves ^_^




    Sorry, there's a little skip in there - I run my DAW on a laptop that practically wheezes smoke out of its vents every time I try to open Explorer, and sometimes it drops out briefly.

    Great guitar tone. Your guitar work is very sympathetic to the backer and is very cool Alainvey. Nice track and playing IMHO!

    That was a very unique approach to the backing track; almost giving up playing melody / solo, instead enriching the track´s atmospheric, dreamy character. The delay used was perfect for this purpose. Well done.

    What do you mean by "violining gimmick"? Volume swells?
