    @udoering - Ullrich it seems we were thinking along the same lines. Nice double stops, I meant to do that as well but didn't get to it!

    @NWinther - Spare works here too. Nice lines on the verse when you get to it.

    @udoering Love the dble stops and especially the tone starting at 1:12 and again at 2:52, really nice Ullrich. Nice melodic riffin' throughout. I hope you are doing better then the news from last week Ullrich.

    @NWinther Way to rock it out with some cool chordal tones and slashing soloing. Hitting your stride at 3:45 - cool Niels!

    @Mjark Man that guitar tone is awesome! Very nice melodic riffin'. I now think this is my favorite from you Mark.

    @estreet I agree with Mark and I think you always nail it Carl. Great execution and technique on the solos and some nice attack and tone. Love the little additions like the defretter fxs. Awesome Carl!

    @JCL50 Wow, big and bad and in your face guitar tone! Great emotive soloing and technique. Nice rocker JCL50!

    @udoering I really like the clean double stop part. good melodic playing throughout the song.

    @NWinther I think i didn't understand

    @Mjark Nice playing. I don't like the tone (like a fuzz into a solid state amp?) but it's only a matter of personal taste.

    @estreet very professionnal sounding. Great playing, awesome track

    @Alan L Cole Sounds like you play A minor blues on a A major track (A is an exemple, I don't remember in which key it was), try moving your pentatonic pattern 3 frets down (same pattern but not the same notes to emphasize) and insert those minor licks from time to time as an effect. Just an idea.

    @JCL50 - Is that what a scooped mid tone is? It sounds a little like something Steve Morse might have used way back in the day. Nice lines.

    @Alan L Cole - JCL's suggestion is a good one. As much as we love the minor pentatonic scale it doesn't always work. This is I V vi V in A major. Otherwise played with your usual fire and intensity. Thanks for your comments.

    This track was describe as Toto style Rock track ,I honestly hear more of Journey than anything else.

    @udoering Yes, that clean tone with the dbl stops was stellar. The harmony and lead guitar complimented each other well . Over all it was a very pleasing and well played track.
    @NWinther I can a see a singer jumping in on your track the way you structured with the rhythm . Lead lines were sweetly played and with a great tone.

    @Mjark The melodic phrasing did indeed enhance your take quite well and liked your tone.A few brilliant lines above what was already a well played take .Very good!

    @estreet Very polish take.Very imaginative lines that went well with your track .The silly section as you describe is the highlight of this track, in my opinion .Love it.

    @JCL50 Lovely tone . A well played track ,lots sweet lines and riffing on this one!

    @Alan L Cole As some already mentioned about playing in a major scale would've been more suited for this track but you seem to have the knack to pull it off more than most others could .As usual Alan , your fierce playing and zeal is always a joy to listen too!

    I thought about this a bit Mark and listened to my track a little more critically. I remembered working up a minor (no pun intended) melodic element and I guess I ended up forcing it on the track. What bothers me is that I didn't catch how bad it was. Guess I'm getting old or deeaf or both, but the hell with the rules; it's rock and roll and that's the way I like it :cool: Thanks to all for the great feedback - very cool of you guys.
