    Looks like you found your place, you must have done something right,
    One-Beat Joe looks at you and says:

    "What are waiting for? Plug that thing you call a geetar and try not to suck!"

    Hey Miguel, I'm Derek the dreaded Craigslist jammer you contacted, I've come to mess with your head for the next couple hours.. Set up over there? ok. Tuner? No, Never use them, thanks anyway. Where's the beer?

    So I had fun trying to sound like the dreaded Craigslist jammer. A bit out of tune, and hopefully just obnoxious yet still kind of interesting. A musical parody of sorts.

    All they had was a Pathfinder 15R miced with a 57, I plugged straight in and went with it. Sounded terrible, but had fun anyway.

    “My grandmother would riff you out of here if she could still see!” - said One Beat Joe

    @ASATKat , cool take, aggressive riffs and good rocking vibe!

    @telekaster1999 , sweet tone, cool riffs! You got a second(third) guitar into the mix as well, nice!

    @SbS , really cool riffs and use of the wah pedal! I'm writing this while listening, cool stuff! Nice ending and glad One-Beat Joe didn't see you arriving with that pedal

    Thx, you have some good ideas for backing tracks that I like. I would advise to get
    a better mix with a looped drum track (YT?) - it was fun!

    Here's a more serious take. Thanks Miguel,

    The BT sounds very British, like The Zombies. I like, takes me back to those days

    @ASATKat , cool second take! Great tone you got there!

    @bgmacaw , now that's some screaming rusty tones! Loved it!

    @Alan L Cole , cool, bluesy, stylish licks and riffs, Bravo! And the tone was great btw

    @Len058 , cool riffs Len, very cool. Brilliant how you changed your playing mid-song and went back to it later.

    Thank you so much for your takes guys! I promise to deliver better, more challenging BT's in the future!

    Thanks! Just do what you want to do. I really liked the raw and honest sound, makes it feel more real ;-)
