    @udoering - I appreciated your phrasing with the melody and landing on target notes; and the rhythm was a nice complement also.
    @Mellencaster - glad you posted Mike; nice jazzy riffs blending well with the bass line

    I want to thank everyone for participating in this nutty track of mine. I'm impressed you guys weren't scared away by it. I've found it difficult to play myself track but somehow find it compelling and I applaud everyone who has given it a go (or still will!).

    I'd also like to thank everyone for their well-wishes. We're doing much better now and will be down in Maryland for the Celebration of Life early next week. When I recorded my take, I had literally just found out and the music gave me an outlet I needed in that moment. Thank you for listening.

    Almost passed on this one but gave it a shot using standard tuning slide and a double compressor setup. Gear is: SX Tele copy (neck P90), EHX Tone Corset, Ammoon Opti-Comp, Hotone Mojo Diamond, Rowin Trelicopter, Hotone Binary IR (Dum M160 IR).

    This thing is called the "weekly challenge", and it runs under this title since some years. We have had all kind of music as backing track; I remember when my first country bt appeared, and I was scared if I could manage that anyhow. Well, I could. Sometimes there are tracks that welcome me with arms wide open, and sometimes there are tracks that require work from me. This is definitely a work track, but that also makes it so interesting:
    "Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds. ... To boldly go where you have never gone before!"

    I wasn't scared away by it, I've just been busy, but I've listened to everyone.

    @bgmacaw : aside from the volume of your guitar track which i think is a little too high, I like your slide playing; just a few minutes ago I tried slide myself, but dismissed it. You succeeded.

    To explore new worlds of guitar music, yes. I love that idea and think about it all the time.

    Might I suggest some different blues such as a rhumba blues, or 16 bar blues, or 8 bar blues? Those are all popular. Jimi's Little Wing or Maggot Brain, those are perfect tunes for a bt.

    That would be all new territory since I've been here.

    More challenging tunes that would work might be,,

    Riviera Paradise - SRV at his jazziest, beautiful lush chords, totally moody

    Cissy Strut - great classic 60's jazz/rock, it's easy to let loose on this one.

    All Your Love I Miss Loving - early Mayal/Clapton Beano, with a change of groove from straight to swing then back.

    Good Morning Little Schoolgirl ala Muddy Waters, a 19 bar blues

    Etc,,,

    Ok, thank you, I'll go back under my rock now.

    Pitch is spot on, nice exotic ideas. The reverb and tremolo really add to your hypnotic "on the range" theme, could be a movie, Frisell like.

    @G-52 - Like the timing of the duel guitars Andrew. Has a classical feel.
    @Mjark - Cool reverse fx and tone.
    @udoering - Nice melodic theme Ullrich. Liked your backing guitar work too.
    @Mellencaster - Lush, blue and cool Mike. Nice!
    @bgmacaw - Has a western film score vibe to it.
    @NWinther - A cool pychedellic romp Niels

    Some hints of middle Eastern vibe. Very cool modes.

    Yes you did really take off with this one.
    One of your best takes in my opinion.

    Hey buddy, you were on your game. Sounded good to the very end. I could hear the moments when you freely played. Nice you captured it.
