    Hah! Sounds familiar! A nice track to end a year! BTW, thank you for your efforts, Mike, to keep this thing going! And, are you aware that we started that in 2014? We have played about 200 tracks until now!!

    It might be familiar:). It is getting more difficult to remember if we had done these tracks or not and like you said, we've played a quite few tracks over the years .I still remember my first track here .I had just started playing electric guitar a few months prior , I was quite nervous posting my track but everyone was very supportive and it inspired me to keep playing , I'm thankful for that.:)

    Oh no, it´s not familiar because we had it here already on behalf of your long term memory performance level! There´s an older song about a comparative amount of emotion which made the guitar sound of a Mr. Scholz quite popular at that time, and the chorus sounds very much like this.

    Here is the outcome of my efforts. Hope you have a little fun - I had.



    I wish you all the very best, and may the "Weekly Challenge" never turn into a "Weakly Challenge"!

    Ullrich gave me my idea. I choose Strat quack rather than creamy Les Paul though. I tweaked the mix a little bit. It didn't have enough delay to be worthy.

    @udoering - Ullrich, You went a little bit grittier than usual! The powerful chorus shines here just as you mentioned. Wonderful.

    That's awesome Ullrich! I really like the range of tone and your delivery on this one. Nice pacing and melodic soloing.

    Mark and Ullrich, you guys really nailed this one! I usually don't listen to anyone's version until mine is done but I struggled with this one today - I really sucked. I may try again tomorrow but if not I wanted to say well done!

    @Mjark : I love your track! You found a line for the chorus that hooks up; simple and effective. The lines you play along the verses really shine in my opinion; you keep them slow and simple in a good melodically way. In the outcome you tell a story there, amplfiied by that beautiful strat sound.

    @Alan L Cole : I am shure you will nail it; it´s your home territory, isn´t it?

    I did the chorus first, then the harmony part, then the verses.

    I must be really sick. I haven't been feeling too wel for the last couple of days , it has to be some kind of flu but I just realized, I uploaded the wrong backer :lol: . I guess I mixed them up ,they both started with American ,I'm a dope,ha. Well I'm glad Ullrich and Mark jumped on it.
    I've taken a few ibuprofen to take the aches out my joints , then I will give a shot and listen.:)

    Thanks Ullrich but it's a little too commerical / popish for my tastes. Maybe I was just having a bad day yesterday but I wasn't happy with my efforts. Will give it another shot today.

    Oh yeah baby, now we talking :cool:. And don't get me wrong, it's good to stretch. It's my bad or shortcomings to have struggled with it. Thanks as always Mike for the challenge to get better and get well soon.
