    This is an open thread to all to post their own track and not a challenge against others but only to challenge your own self.

    Download to your DAW or portable digital recorder and go for it. Remember to have fun.:)

    I love this type of feel tune. Did a take an hour ago. A bit saturated but oh well. :) I tried to keep simple and search for melody by tracing underlying chords. I dove into a little legato later on in the last verse just to give the illusion of some speed.

    Another MDent track! You’re spoiling us!

    Plus: a pic of Gary Moore with a flaming red 335! I don’t recollect ever seeing him with anything but a Les Paul and the occasional strat? Oh well…

    I payed money to listen to musician like yourself and yet you play free for us . now that is awesome!:p
    Great take Michael! I loved just about everything you did on this from the intro to legatos . You kind of set the bar on this but that's a good thing ,it challenges us to perform our best :)

    I don't recall at all but maybe why I was drawn to it.

    That was a very kind thing to say Mike!

    Just play a solo from your gut. It'll work.

    Mike, (wow, another Mike...it must be a guitar name :)) Hopefully you like the backtrack and enjoy ripping a play a solo to it.

    Like the rest of the players, take a few days and make it your own. I find it incredibly fun to play to.

    Ha !!! Just realized, you're a Michael too ;) Now if it turns out we're all left-handed that would be really weird !!!

    Yes, I love the track. Great job laying it down so nicely...it does sound like a "Gary Moore" inspired groove for sure. He's one guitarist whose style I've always admired...even had a doggie named Thin Lizzy back in the 70's. She was a real sweetheart...

    I'll start thinking up ideas tomorrow, after I cut the grass...it's getting knee deep out there (inspiring does not come to mind here at all o_O) Then maybe I can get with it. It sounds like a really great track to jam with !!! And now the bar is set way high...I'll have to play up to the standards of "The Michaels"...or I'll have to change my name :oops:

    Mike C. :)

    Really good take there @MDent77 as usual. Very melodic, interesting, and proficient, top marks from me.

    Nice Raimond. I liked the bending to the 2nd and back down to the root note in the intro. You captured a real sweet bend at 2:10 – very Santana-esque. Parts reminded me of Neil Young.

    Gentlemen, though I tinkered a a little with the track this morning, but I am not ready to post anything listenable here. But I can tell you that my second granddaughter was born yesterday. She was born after just a few hours after birth started. She was named Matilda and is healthy, as well as her other. I didn´t see her yet, maybe will do a visit at the weekend.

    Furthermore, today was NPD. I received the Source Audio tremolo and chorus, just had a quick test, they are working beautifully. So, days of joy!
