    I'm a little late posting this, it has been a busy week and was a quick pick. Enjoy.

    It took me a while to work this out, because I had the idea that I wanted two guitar tracks. It wasn´t easy to balance this out, but I think I succeeded. Hope you enjoy:

    Thanks. I feel like I'm getting really stale. Your take is an anthem. Great opening line sounds like a bold horn!

    - Pretty sounding Strat to start it becomes aggressive too! Deep dives!

    @Mjark - Great classic rock tone. I know the feeling of getting stale, but it doesn't sound stale to me.
    @udoering - Nice change-ups with the guitars. Interesting tones on both of them. Great pull-offs and hammer ons.
    @fendrguitplayr - Sounds like you're making a statement, principled and angry. Lots of feeling.
    @JCL50 - I used to have a Japanese strat that I wish I had never let go. Yours sounds beautifully mellow. Kind of a Mark Knopfler tone. Ah, and now you have engaged the distortion. Nice!

    @Mjark great phrasing and tone. I agree with Ullrich, some phrases sound like surf music.
    @udoering sounds good! the two guitars work well together.
    @fendrguitplayr sounds wild.
    @knh555 Nice tone and playing.

    @Mjark - Nice tone and great playing throughout.
    @udoering - The two guitars worked well together here.
    @JCL50 - Melodic start with sweet tone then you dug in and let it rip.
    @knh555 - Your guitar is singing this and it sounds great.
    @Alan L Cole - Creative intro and nice followed up flow with nice phrasing.

    @Mjark - Sweet tone, love those low notes and great phrasing.
    @udoering - Two guitar track sounds very good, sweet classic rock motifs and all with lovely guitar tones
    @fendrguitplayr - Very nice crunchy tone. Dynamic with a bit attitude and it went a long way. Sounds sweet with the wiggle stick, Mike.
    @JCL50- Nice Strat tone all through! I love the dynamic tones you've express from soft to saturated with your playing. Good stuff.
    @knh555 - Melodic and the slide give a cool surf vibe. Sweet tone and playing.
    @Alan L Cole - Expressive and emotive, very sweet lines played. Lovely tone, Alan.

    Being a bit of a contrarian, I decided to rock out on my guitalele for this one. I think I have thoroughly demonstrated why the guitalele has not become a go to instrument for classic rock leads.

    This is guitar rock at it's best. Great tones and effects done right and nice wiggle stick.

    guitarsophistVery unique but played sweetly, it kept me captivated. You've made it fit nicely with the BT, it also seems to tame the rock overtones from the track. Nice out the box thinking!
