    G-52 The bt is a little low in the mix but a nice use of 3rds and 6ths and that sigh at the end still caught me off guard , I laugh when I heard it :)

    @G-52 : Mike´s right again. Lovely country-style-playing along the bt. You have a beautiful characteristic clean sound.

    This is my first plunge into Rockabilly, which seems odd for a dude that owns a Gretsch, and who loves the Gretsch sound, but that's what we have here. This backing track was a real toe tapper, and great fun to play over! Looking forward to hearing everyone's track now.

    I thought it was interesting to hear all the different approaches to the intro. Just straight up fun this one was!

    @Wayfaring Pilgrim you rocked the EF outta that S. Nice face melting.

    @udoering super tasty chops as usual, and they sat perfectly in the mix. Stellar as always.

    @Mellencaster you nailed it. Had me totally rocking all the way, with great blues overtones. Sweet!

    @Mjark you had me from the 60 cycle hum beginning. There’s something organic about that sound. You took the melody to a very nice place. Great listen!

    @estreet those are some next level great chops (again) for this track. Man you better sleep with one eye open, someone might try to steal yours hands in the middle of the night. Flawless playing, great tone!

    @JCL50 nice 50’s sound. A lot of good phrases in there. Great twang!

    @bgmacaw cool take with the slide. I want some pineapple now. Nice work!

    @G-52 your take had a nice dreamlike quality. I really enjoyed your offering.

    @Wayfaring Pilgrim - crowd goes wild, nice!
    @udoering - lots of interesting phrasing; descending thirds, triplets, major minor mix. Sounding good:)
    @Mellencaster - tone was spot on. Boogie and blues, one of your best I think, really well played
    @Mjark - nice melodic take without being overdone.
    @JCL50 - enjoyable thoroughout; awesome tele lead guitar with some cool rhythm:)
    @bgmacaw - how about them apples?! I enjoyed the slide and the show:)
    @estreet - beautiful rockabilly playing! Nice strong melody throughout. I would like to see some pics of that tele:)

    montemerrick Appologies are not required here and I see you've got a listening partner of the furry kind behind you. The lines that caught my attention the most are the intro ,00:45, 1:31 ,2:05 other than that it was a fine take Monty.

    @montemerrick : this might not be your best track up so far, but there sweet lines in it fo sure; the opening, for example, was really good; an interesting note choice. See, I rarely post tracks which are one shots; in most cases there are a lot of trials, adding parts of different length and short overdubs; so, respect for everyone who posts one shots captured on videos.

    Bluesrock at it´s best with swift fingers! And yes, there are anarchistic moments; the ending reminds me of "smashing the amps" :)

    Was really trying to get it in before a new challenge was posted but I see I missed it. Well at any rate this was a fun one not sure I got what I was going after but I had enough time to pick up a guitar again and figured who better to hang out with and play with than you guys.

    Sorry for being late with listening; anyhow, a lovely track! I really dig that slightly aggressive, bluesrock guitar!
