    @Mellencaster : you played it more country-like than bluesy style; nice laidback melodic playing. I think your guitar track is a little too loud.
    @bgmacaw : quite a special mood on your track, have no name for it, but sure a beautiful one.
    @knh555 : lovely strat sound! Very delicate playing as if you don´t want to disturb; nice mix between bluesy licks and major scale melodic stuff.

    @NWinther : the title of your track expresses perfectly the vibe of your playing; I like the more quieter parts a little more, just a matter of personal preference.

    @knh555 - Nice country blues and not too far from the rockabilly sound.A sweet mix of the major and the minor scale and the Strat sound very good with the track
    @udoering - Swampy, nice! Very good mix of both guitars, they play off each other quite nicely and a lovely southern blues vibe, my only one observation, I think you could've introduced the lead intro until the 45 second mark, for me, it would've established the first guitar presence.if that makes sense.
    @NWinther - Nicely played, very emotive track and I quite liked the drive tone on this, Niels.

    Kept it to a couple of minutes or you'll all fall asleep. Baritone Strat with a bit of Telecaster in the middle.

    I always worry about SC compression of the track, it's hit or miss sometimes :) but anyways, I adjusted the track mix and it seems to blend in a little better

    estreet That baritone sound so good on this and not once did I drift off to lala land listening, Carl.You've kept it interesting to the end, love those staccato notes and blending of both guitars Very nice! Out of curiosity, what is the standard tuning for a baritone guitar?

    I usually tune mine to B Standard, B E A D F♯ B. Some people tune down to A Standard.

    @estreet : lovely clean as well as hairy Tele sound and well built up. Those muted notes are really nice!
    @Mellencaster : much better now! And i agree with your observation.

    I got my Gibson Blue Ridge off the top of the book case. It has a K&K pick up in it now. One go round.

    I love the tremolo it really fits here.

    Nice restraint and lovely Strat tone.

    Bluesiest take so far!

    - I miss having a baritone guitar. Great fit for this.

    - Pleasant listening.

    @Mjark : sounds really good! I mean the guitar with the pickup as well as your playing. Blends in perfectly.
