    Hi Mike. I'm having trouble downloading the file.

    Nice track though. :)

    I have no idea why it didn't work on the first upload, I deleted the track and re-uploaded the track again. It seems to be fixed, now. Thanks, Phil.

    Beeing an ignorant, I had to google the original tune and found out that it was that kind of music where I can´t really remember the melody. So what you hear is just noodling on base of the chords.

    Pretty much at sea with no rudder.

    You have a much better grasp of the changes than I do. Well done.

    Maybe I should have too, what you did sounded cool with the two guitars.

    Another cool take and many nice runs along the way.

    @Mjark : sounds good! I don´t think you didn´t match the changes. Only thing to critisize is that your guitar could have been a little louder.
    @fendrguitplayr : well, you found a nice melody. I just would have make the main guitar (on the left channel) a little louder and lower the guitar on the right, as long as it is not playing the main melody.

    This track made me feel like I was in Vegas lounge in the 1960's, on stage in a monkey suit, maybe after having swigged a couple of Old Fashioneds...

    Gear is Ibanez Artcore TM-71 with Guitar Madness P94's (neck), Hotone Mojo Diamond, Hotone Binary IR (SF Twin 2x12 IR, R-121 mic) and Audacity reverb

    Clearly not in my comfort zone on this one.

    My attempt with Gibson Nighthawk into Boss CS3 into Marshall amp (clean channel). Reverb added in reaper.

    @udoering The "back" guitar complement the main guitar well, nice crescendo in energy.
    @Mjark You 're trying to hide in the mix, but you don't need. It sounds OK to me.
    @fendrguitplayr the left guitar sounds a little strange to me. nice melody
    @bgmacaw nice clean tone and playing

    @bgmacaw : the picture you describe - can´t get it out of my head :)! Besides that, nice clean playing. I like those double-strokes (if that is the right word) you strat with at about 0:37.
    @JCL50 : lovely sound from the Marshall; had exspected something different (omitting the "clean channel" when reading firstly). You got some really lovely lines and double stops.
    @Alan L Cole : sounds a little as if a blues guitarist has been abducted by a man with a monkee costume on to a Las Vegas stage ...;)

    Sweet tone and phrasing especially around the 1:02" mark. Very cool take!

    Another very ear pleasing take with good lines and tone.

    * Note to self - stop pressing go and just winging it.*

    I heard the great jazz classic Every Time We Say Goodbye, and I thought of Ella,

    Katana clean fat, ASAT tone knob down to zero, I thought of Burrell,

    Thanks Mike,

    Every Time We Say Goodbye
