    Little Reggae mixed with Pentatonics, maybe a new genre, southern Reggae?

    @G-52 : that´s an interesting mix: reggae, blues, country picking; well done, Andrew!
    @fendrguitplayr : lovely guitar sound; nice, relaxed - very relaxed - playing! Rastaman got the blues!
    @jimilee : indeed a special tonality; sounds rather good. Nice buildup as well!
    @Bullfweet : what a sweet guitar sound! Not to forget the playing - beautiful lines and double stops. The harmonizer brings in a little hawain feeling (or something like that). By the way, nice to hear from you again!
    @Mjark : ahh, I already began to ask myself if noone wants to do the country track!? Well played, Mark! Like the semi-rythm opening and the melody you played. The reggae track is done very expressive, my friend! Lovely mixture of reggae and blues style. Say, do you play more since you have retired? Seems to me you developed your playing in the last months.

    - Yep! Nice pace to your phrases.

    - Smooth. Playing and tone.

    - I guess we're only hillbillies here! energetic playing all the way though. On the Reggae your tone has just the right bite. Lovely stuff.

    Good riffs and edgy biting tone.

    No, I used a Flanger (close though).

    You guys are too kind. This was a one take recording after running through it many times. I watched a couple of YouTube videos to get the feel and jist of what a reggae style solo should be.
