    For this track, a Telecaster and Mesa Express blues mode seemed appropriate.



    Hope you enjoy.

    @Wayfaring Pilgrim : solid rock´n roll playing with a more modern sound; reminds me a little bit of Cactus, though Bogert and Appice would have played it differently.

    @Wayfaring Pilgrim Solid rock playing , nice raw southern rockin tone. Good vibe all through.

    @udoering Remind me of a Louisianna blues with a little of Cajun country style and to add another for solid playing .Rhythmic lines and sweet tones , a cool track to listen too.

    It's evident you had fun!

    - You brought some Rock ideas to this swingy track.

    - Really solid. Great Bluesy lines.

    @Mjark : I like that you did not let the tempo strain yourself, and I like your mixture of rock´n roll and melodic major lines!

    @estreet : after your last video postings I exspected something like this, e.g. this kind of playing and your precision. Very nice!

    @Mjark You have a very good techinal sense of mixing the minor and the major in your phrasing , I always enjoy listening to your takes and liked how you've got the intro and outro lines down pretty good.
    @estreet You've nailed this track nicely with a 50s vibe from start to end .Well played Carl.

    :) The last track I posted was indeed challenging for the changes.

    Here's mine. Baja 60s Telecaster. (Maybe I was a little heavy on the limiter)

    Here's mine. I had to give my slide playing a bit of a work out on this one since it was fast. It was a challenge. I used my Rondo SX STL-50 (neck P90), Ammoon Opti-Comp, SansAmp, Trelicopter and Mosky Spring Reverb. The slide show is vintage apple crate ads.



    I don't start playing until about 20 seconds in and I chopped the outro part off. I couldn't come up with anything I liked to play over them.

    JCL50 The intro and the outro was very nice and love the tone . Very solid playing all through JC!

    bgmacaw Great idea, the slide gives it a cool western swing sound .Nicely done.

    @JCL50 : good track! Mike is right with every word!
    @bgmacaw : yes, very unique! I would never thought of this. Sounds good!
