    Indeed, that´s the first track I played without a plek completely.

    Did write an intro to go with that link but seems to have disappeared! Anyhow been lurking for a while, have no DAW and so humbly am putting up a very poor quality first post. Hope to do this a bit more regularly and sort out a proper way to record not in an iPhone in the future... Nice to meet you all :)

    been a while
    I found 10 minutes to get this one done

    one take, mistakes free of charge
    straight into the computer, no effects etc

    @udoering I have to say, I agree too...love the octaves...they just fit... the smooth, clean playing, lends to a very layed back enjoyable listen...no pressure, just music. Matilda's Tune...a fine name :)

    You need to burn some of these to a CD, along with Matilda's Tune for your granddaughter. I'm sure she would get a big smile listening to grandpa laying down some sweet guitar work :)

    Tele Wogan, willkommen im Club! Even if the sound quality of your track was not top notch, it was easy to hear that you played a rather good version! If you wanna start the recording, there are many ways to do so, from low to high budget.

    Paul, a sweet clean version of that track. You found a nice hook line in your improvisation!

    Sorry it took me a while to respond to this. I really like the tone you have here, and I agree with everyone else that your double stops make for a very pretty melody. It does sound like Knopfler! Very nice touch. I like the dreamy sound it gives to the back cycle bit (I dunno, I just mean the interesting chord changes).

    Really lovely take and worth the wait, thank you.

    @Tele Wogan Ah, the lonely bluesman wails his tragic story from out of the darkness. I like the chunky sounding palm mutes you do quite early on, if your setup were better I'm sure I would feel the bass go through me on those :) A nice stinging tone you've selected too. The phrasing around 1:53 or so is cool, then more palm mutes, mmm. I think you have a nice vibrato as well, but it's hard to hear sometimes ;) Thanks for posting!

    @pauljo1963 I was sad you didn't use the greatest guitar tone of all time on this one. Everyone else: see pauljo's below track at 2:35 for what I mean. More lovely double stops, I need to get in on this. Some very tasteful and soulful blues playing here, I think the simple tone you used is hard to hide behind, and that's ok because you have nothing to hide :)

    You made it all the way across the border! I love your vibrato. It stings!

    That was very expressive playing. The intro was cool as well as the coda.

    @Mellencaster - the delay you used and languid lines adds to the melancholy inherent in the changes. Very nice.

    @tooloud - that was great when you let loose towards the end. You found the last note!

    @Bullfweet - What a pretty melody, well executed as well.

    @udoering - Ullrich, what a beautiful start for Matilda! As usual you took a different path than the rest of us. I love your cleanish tone and double stops.

    @Tele Wogan - Welcome! You'll have fun here whatever you use to record. A great first submission.

    All thanks for your kind words and encouragement. Ive was inspired enough to get myself an Irig as a starting point and have had a second go at this just now. This is far from perfect as I was as focussed on working out how to use this and garageband/soundcloud as I was on what I was actually playing. it takes a bit of getting used to as using a digital source has a very different feel to the valve amp I am used too - its a lot more unforgiving IMO. SO you can certainly hear things a lot better than the earlier version - although that might not be a good thing ;)

    but if this thing works and if this link actually results in some music coming out then I'll try and do this on a more regular basis.

    thanks, Martyn

    Martyn welcome to the digital world of music , your second take was very expressive and dynamically played.The chromatic lines was a nice touch in the mix.Looking forward hearing more from you .:)

    @Tele Wogan Tele forum membership can be hazardous to the health of your wallet.

    Needs more sweep picking.

    Just kidding, that was fantastic: I really enjoyed that take. The lines at the start (though it was all great) were especially refined and melodic. Lovely phrasing and emphasis on show. I can also hear you loud and clear, and your vibrato is confirmed good :D

    Beeing no Apple user I am not really sure what an iRig is and what it does, but recording your valve amp isn´t a big thing. Garageband is sufficient, and all you need is a 1-2 channel usb interface and a microphone; a SM57-clone will do (of course, you can spend a lot money on this if you wish :)). For my tracks I (mostly) use a Mesa Cabclone, which has the advantage that you can record completely noiseless.

    I can see this spiralling into yet another way to spend cash !!! :)

    Will give it a few goes with the digital version and then look at the recording options too. Might get some opinions before I splurge though...

    Thanks all. Alainvey - I must admit to being guilty of a sweep picking, habit. I reckon might set myself a challenge of a non sweep picked take one week ;)
