    That's very nice, and an interesting tone, at times I heard a John Cipollina vibe with the whammy, and that's cool,

    This "tune" bt was almost complete on it's own so I felt it better to play as part of the texture of the piece. Any sparse soloing is also part of the fabric as well. Interesting, different, challenging, and lots of fun.
    I'm the tremolo part, duh,

    Prog Fog,

    Not many of of jam out in 9/8, it's a bit of a thinking cap song for sure.

    I would say you sounded like you felt, and the extended ending, was that an anxious nerves release? =)

    How is the little future geetarist doing?

    He's had a slightly rocky start but he should be home with a day or so. He' also huge. my tiny daughter had an 11 lb boy.

    Whoa! That's a big baby boy! I don't think any of my children and grandchildren were bigger than 7 lb. I'm glad to hear they're both fine and should be home soon.

    @ASATKat Nice ideas with some harmony lines and the trem worked well here.

    Thanks fendrguitplayr, I was progging out lol. The tremolo is a formidable effect, it can work for me where my 8th notes sound like swells, or it could give me the opposite effect of cutting the note short , I had a lot of good swell moments and some undesirable deswelling moments. Getting the analog trem to nail the tempo just right with a rotary knob, no tap tempo, takes time and some luck. My Red Witch Pentavocal trem has a super bright green pulsing light that causes my vision/nerves/brain to respond to the pulse in time, I mean I can feel the pulse without having to play. it allows me to dial in the pulse in silence when on stage or whenever. A totally top shelf all analog trem, it kills the digital trem in my Katana.

    This is like the 3rd time I've done a bt with trem. I guess I'm a trem guy thanks to Bill Frisell. But I must find other effects lol. My Yamaha Magic Stomp has some very unique effects.
