    I've come to the realisation that I never have more fun with these backing tracks than when they are outside of my comfort zone. I never listen to or play this kind of thing or Jazz but always it's a hoot to have a bash. PRS Vela, (t)rusty Line6 Crunchtone pedal & DV Mark GH250 using the D.I output

    Some timing issues, the pitch effect has a slight lag other than that it's my typical playing.

    @Mjark Nice and melodic. cool harmony! Real powerful tone, it fits very nicely.
    @tooloud You've set the bar high on this one, the harmony and the tone were spot on.
    @estreet A lost opportunity for you not playing metal you do it very well

    @Mjark : lovely melodic playing; love those bendings against the target note and the less distorted chord work.
    @tooloud : that´s classic heavy rock at it´s best; nice dual guitars. The track needs a wind machine!
    @estreet : as if you have never played anything else! Lovely gimmicks (tapping, screaming guitar at the end).
    @Mellencaster : that deep guitar is a wonderful ingredient! Like your "typical playing".

    @Mjark - Cool tone, sweet runs and nice second harmonized guitar Mark.
    @tooloud - Nice harmonies, LP tones and rock rifferaging. Rocktastic!
    @estreet - I'd say it was right in your comfort zone Carl. Way to wring emotion from and showcase technique on the guitar here.
    @Mellencaster - Cool theme, pacing and fxs. Sounds great Mike!
    @udoering - Pretty melodic playing with just the right amount of spank of the plank Ullrich. Nice outro.

    - You're 100% at home here. Was that a harmonizer or just you?

    - Yeah I hear you're having fun!

    I considerd playing inversions to get some really low chords but...Your typical playing is good!

    Very pretty melodies and use of dynamics.

    And a Metal title to boot! Great stuff Alan. This is in your wheelhouse too. You sound extremely comfortable and confident.

    I recorded the first part and then played around till I liked the second then recorded that and split them left and right.

    Alan L Cole I can see the spotlight directly on you as the band sits in the shadows while you perform your very emotional solo. Well played Alan.

    Here's mine. Out of the comfort zone to be sure so I tried a few things outside my usual gear too. Gear is Carvin Bolt kit (SD StagMag bridge), Biyang Fuzz Star, Eleca Tube Distortion (clean channel), Rowin Flanger (Mooer Eleclady clone), Mooer Radar (G12H IR), Mosky Spring Reverb.

    bgmacaw Pretty good for being out of your comfort zone, I quite liked the tail off with the finger vibratos.

    This was a quick one-take from me, clean with distortion added after. A rag-bag of old clichés, with a few clams for free!
