    Very laid-back, very simple - C Major, no surprises.

    I noted the key, plugged in and played. It's past my nap time.

    @Mjark Beautiful playing. I could listen to that for hours.
    @heltershelton Very nice. Love the unison bends.

    My attempt:

    @alainvey : lovely sound, ands as already stated, melodious playing with surprising licks which keep the track interesting.
    @Mjark : beautiful, laid back playing. Playing it slowly keeps up the tension.
    @heltershelton : nice transition from melodic playing to rock territory
    @Wayfaring Pilgrim : sound reminds me strongly of "Brothers in Arms"; you have a lot of energy in your playing! I like that chordy stuff al about 3:30.
    @estreet : a lovely country version, chicken pickin´ and all necessary ingredients! By the way, thank for for posting this!
    @NWinther : just like that guitar sound! And, to make it short, your always surprising playing!

    I'm not able to participate until I resolve my computer failure to start up since last week but I've been too busy to look at until last evening and no luck so far but I'll join in when I can

    I'm not ready to run with the big dogs just yet (and you guys are some pretty big dogs!), but I hope I can hang out on the porch (or inspire someone else that would like to). Hopefully some of the great playing from you folks will rub off on me at some point. Truly inspired playing from all of you!

    Anyway, took a shot at it and at least I have something I can listen to in the background:

    Sorry, no tele on this one. I had my Gretsch Streamliner handy so I went with it. :)

    Welcome, Clint! Those of us who participate for longer time have developed their playing, and surely were inspired by what others did. If you have to deal every week with a new track in different styles, learning is inevitable. But please, don´t make yourself so small. You don´t deserve it. I heard a melody, a theme, and expressive playing. Hope you will stay here a little.

    @udoering thanks for the kind words and thanks to all for the likes!

    This was a fun backing track for me and a good exercise all the way around. As an experiment I recorded two lead tracks, one using major Pentatonic and the other was with the Ionian scale. The final result was a mix of the two tracks. I think I'm going to approach my recording sessions in that manner moving forward, but with more tracks, methods and approaches. I'm interested in learning how other folks approach their solos as well.
