    f69tele- What a very nice version. The harmonics and the harmonies are great, lovely lines all through. Well done.

    I think this track is right in your wheelhouse f69. Great production and tone and first rate playing. Awesome!

    @ndcaster - Nice playing and cool use of tremolo. Maybe bring the guitar track's levels up a tad? Nice overall track.

    @ndcaster - I like how you played mainly in the middle and lower registers, then reaching up to the upper octave towards the end. Nice grit and tremolo. Good all around playing on this one.

    @f69tele : very nice playing throughout; I like that run very much starting at about 2:05 and especially the notes you play at the change at 2:11. And, btw, I also don´t listen before having mine loaded up.
    @ndcaster : like said before, cool sound and nice playing.

    @f69tele sounds very nice. mastered playing and effective melody, it's a very good version.
    @ndcaster good use of tremolo (and phaser?), nice playing.
    @NWinther nice creative take. some lines sound a little like backward played guitar tracks, some lines remind me of Jeff Beck style. Innovative take.

    @ndcaster - Ah yes, tremolo! Liked your patience and the soft build up, sweet lines on your version.
    @NWinther -I liked how you allowed the piano intro to play through unobstructed. Lovely tone and playing.

    how do you make the @ sign links? I'd like to comment like that

    nwinther, nice space, generous, and a wonderful Beck-like line from 2:38

    JCL, harmonic tremolo

    @NWinther - Sensitive playing and nice tone Niels. The volume swells work well. Nice playing.

    I’m so late to the party it’s not even funny. But I thought I would not waste the occasion: one week without any rehearsals, and a new tele in the house!

    Here’s the first public outing of my new (new to me!) AV64 tele bought from friend @mimmo . I am a crappy player, but she’s an amazing guitar. (Yes, even through my cheap-o Mustang I).

    Here’s my take!



    Now I’m off to listen to your tracks gentlemen… I’m really happy to be among you anytime I can!

    @Alan L Cole : very nice sound, wonderful passage from clean to lead tone. Like the others I like your use of the harmonics. And a rather psychedelic finale!

    @udoering : tasty use of the blue note and flat 7! Double stops! Many specials here!

    @Mellencaster : the start is perfect. Love how you make the change to C. Some really epic moments, round 2:20. Great track!

    @Mjark : the chords at the start are great… wonderful tone choice. I also love the minimalist way in which the other tele enters the picture. You’ve done a great job of improving the music. Frankly, super good.

    @fendrguitplayr : very nice tone and very nice phrases up the neck!

    @JCL50 : very good use of your initial theme. I like it when there’s a musical idea that informs the whole thing. Great pinch harmonics. Baja 60s sound great, and yours is no exception!

    @bgmacaw : wow! That’s a powerful start! It’s cool how you nailed a lap steel sound

    @Mikejazz : maybe I should get a LP Jr! I like how you follow the dynamics of the track. The finest moment (to me) is the quiet central part.

    @guitarsophist : my browser would not load it :(

    @f69tele : Whoaaaa! Full of inventions, full of musical themes and ideas (harmonics at the start, nice theme, harmonization), and such a spectacular tone. My hat’s off to you!

    @ndcaster : I like how you embedded your track in the overall sound of the backing track, letting the strings and the rest of the arrangement come out.

    @NWinther : all this time away I had forgotten about your swells and your magic fingers… on this one you manage to be at the time cheerful and melancholy. It’s a very special, personal track.

    RadioFM74 Welcome back RadioFM74, it's been some time since you've done one of these. You still sound very good and congrats on the new tele. Quite an enjoyable take, sweet build up to the alternating guitars and lovely lines all through.
