    Not much to say about it but I found it difficult to stray away from the original version

    G-52 Very nice Andrew. I'm amazed at how you manage to get a country beat on a rock track but you did it in a tasteful way

    @fendrguitplayr - nice; great southern rock sound; tasteful lines, I especially liked @1:40 mark
    @Mellencaster - beautiful take Mike; lovely soft tone like a woodwind, and really nice expression throughout

    Sorry, but I have to ask: what does "MTB" mean? Anyhow, my contribution:



    The usual suspects: St Vincent on Mesa Express clean mode and a little Tele.

    @fendrguitplayr : I like how how build it up very slowly; some lovely lines.
    @Mellencaster : tasteful, very tasteful! Sweet sound and dynamic playing; beautiful delicate opening.
    @G-52 : Mike nailed it. Rock track and country playing go well together.

    udoering The harmony , rhythm, and lead all were very nicely played Ullrich. You've captured The Marshall Tucker Band's (MTB ) vibe, a lovely intro to a dynamic build up and sweet tones from both guitar tracks.

    Nice buildup with some sweet riffs and tone.


    Nice twang and riffs throughout.


    Marshall Tucker Band. Nice lines throughout and liked your dynamics.


    Best title award and cool dual tracked guitar lines that complimented each other.


    @Mjark - That tone is very good, the riffs and phrasing sound fine too.

    And you did. That was cool.

    - How about expertly rendered? Really smooth.

    Another really interesting spin. Very cool.

    More creative work. Excellent rhythm guitar too.

    - More dueling guitars that compliment each other instead of fighting.

    @Mjark : beautiful sound and runs; some of them remembered me of lines I heard from the Allman Bros. You must have had some Southern Comfort before playing this :)

    Ha! I don't drink anymore but that stuff was the worst. One time in my youth was enough! I did most of this late last night. But re-did the beginning and end this morning.

    Here's mine. Long intro so I don't start playing until about 35 seconds in. Gear used is Mosrite JR kit (neck mini-HB), Hotone Mojo Diamond, Hotone Binary IR Cab (SF Twin IR), Audacity reverb.

    @bgmacaw : sweet fat sound. The way you play it sounds less southern to me, but I could not find the adjective that would nail my impression.
