    After running through it several times, this what I have. I used my Santana PRS SE. No haters please, it was inherited from my brother.

    Didn't have a lot of free time today so I banged this off quickly - DI'd through the Zoom Ms-100bt using the 'Governor' emulator. PRS Vela and Godin A6 Acoustic.

    @montemerrick : nice, melodic playing; somehow you avoided to sound like Carlos, which is not meant as a critique, more like a folk melody.
    @jimilee : "Santana PRS SE", what else if available!? I hope you didn´t want to sound like Carlos, because to my ears you don´t, and again, no criticism. I have the association of a late 60s track.
    @estreet: professional as always! Good idea to use the acoustic guitar for the quiet part.
    @Mjark : love what you did here; the chords at the start, the chromatic run following, changing the pickups. Good track!

    Sorry I am too busy these days, had some repairs to conduct and some parts where late....grrr Danish Postal "service" is not all that great!
    And since stores are getting scarce since that monster down south has eaten up all competiton, it is not easy getting parts anymore.
    Anyways it was a good little break with this track....but it was a fast one to make....oh well..

    What do you you mean by that? Is Godzilla back and I missed it? Anyhow, beautiful guitar sound and expressive playing, not too Carlos.

    @udoering nope, it just happened to be my guitar of choice for the week. It was merely a coincidence.

    @montemerrick Nice melody! Nice fluid playing Monte,it sounds very good.
    @jimilee Nicely done.I hear the late 60s influence like Ullrich mentioned.
    @estreet Sweet lines and tones, Santana like .Very nicely done.
    @Mjark Your playing is really evolving since your retirement.Really nicely constructed and played Mark
    @udoering Your gear sounds very good .Nicely played lines and the break section was spot on
    @NWinther Nicely executed with your dynamic tone and playing, lovely.

    - I like the melody you used right out of the gate.

    - Nice Bluesy lines.

    Yes, the quiet part was cool, thoughtfully done.

    Yours is Bluesy too with a hint of Latin.

    - Busy is good! It doesn't show in your playing!

    - Nice clean Canadian tone! Good minor lines though out.

    I don't think I could get my wife's iPad to do that! Thick tone, much like Carlos favors these days. Good one.

    @Mellencaster : truely your very own version (typed "style" at first, but that is not your style as far as I know). Very clean guitar sound, down to earth, melodic playing with a hint of spanish music.
    @fendrguitplayr : nice blend of latin, blues and hard rock, I should say.

    @montemerrick Your Emperador and playing sound fine.
    @jimilee Nice ideas and playing throughout.
    @estreet Very nice tone and speedy riffs.
    @Mjark Lovely intro and great clean lines with a warm tone. (You COULD do it with iPad and an Apogee Jam I think).
    @udoering Soulful phrasing and tone is very good.
    @NWinther Good playing and ideas throughout with some great riffs especially after the break.
    @Mellencaster Love the sweet tone you have here, nice clean riffs.

    @fendrguitplayr Nicely done with the Ipad guitar software. Carlo's tone and phrasing were interpreted well.
