    I liked the Spanish vibe you started with and then came back to after rockin' out.

    Some sweet tones and lines that compliment each other, Alan. Nice trills!

    Cool range of fx Mike, with a psychidelic vibe.

    Kind of spooky with the distant guitar. I liked the how you used the left and right channels.

    NWinther I love the high notes they're really were expressive and the outro was a really nice touch too

    fendrguitplayr If that isn't an induced purple haze experiment track, then I don't what is? Love it, good stuff Mike.

    @Mellencaster – Thank you for taking the trouble to post the backing track. I thought your take was very tasteful, and I enjoyed it.

    @Mjark – There is a lot of light and shade here, as well as an air of danger that would complement a cowboy movie. Nice.

    @tooloud – Digging the harmony lines! Your heavy sections get suitably rocky too. Flying fingers in the solo.

    @estreet – I'm amazed at the authority you lay this down when it isn't really your thing. Very impressive!

    @udoering – Very sweet phrasing and tone. I like the way you tackled the heavier sections while remaining melodic.

    @Alan L Cole – Very nice phrasing, expression and tone. You build this very well, rather than letting off all the fireworks.

    @bgmacaw – What you're playing is so well constructed and executed, it might have sounded even better 'clean'?

    @MrClint – Expressive, clever use of harmonics and different guitar tones. Loved the harmonica, and your video.

    @NWinther – Pretty intense at times, but also very on the money. You really rock, but you know when to rein it in too.

    @fendrguitplayr – Very ambient at times. Nicely played, and a real sonic landscape.

    @NWinther : Alan is right. What you play after the 1:00-mark is gorgeous.
    @fendrguitplayr : alas, the first guitar could not be heard very well; but I liked what I heard. You surprised us with your guitar sound; nice effect at 1:49!

    Haha, the harp caught me by surprise, I thought it was a cool guitar effect for about three seconds. Nice buddy.

    Were you influenced by Blind Faith?

    That may sound really weird if you don't know Blind Faith was a band lol.

    Yea, BF was a bit narrow, the 3rds reminded me of BF but 100 other songs too. Nice job.

    cool you mention 3rds...i usually throw them in on bass in a band to really add some pull then a root & 4th for dissonance..a guitar player then can stay in the chord progression & bass can color or move the mode..my studio guy goes nutz when i throw a note out of progression in the song..but in the end it moves the song...
