    I feel like I want to redo the lead on this one, but here it is with a few clams scattered about. The tone isn't quite right either. Rhythm on the Yamaha Revstar P90s on the Princeton tweed. Lead on the Gretsch Duo Jet w/Dynasonic singlecoils on the Princeton BF.

    @knh555 - I like the rhythm pattern; nice melody lines also. Minor pentatonic seems to work well over this track.
    @fendrguitplayr - rockin’ out and sounding good. I liked the trill-filled intro. The guitars are well coordinated. An interesting, fun track.

    @G-52 - Really twangy! Nice country bends! Sweet licks!
    @knh555 - Really interesting approach. The guitars play off each other well. I really like the rhythm part.
    @fendrguitplayr - I hope those rail cars weren't full of telecasters! This track has a lot of cool stuff going on simultaneously. Nice sort of guitar moan at the ending.
    @alainvey - Nice big meaty classic rock tone put to good service in a country rock context. Works really well!
    @Mjark - Nice ascending intro. I don't know what guitar you are using, but the tone kind of reminded me of John Lennon playing his Casino on the Abbey Road album.

    @ASATKat - I don't know about Barney Rubble but it's a raucous rockin' track that leaves rubble in its wake.
    @Alan L Cole - Great tones and licks, but at times the two guitars got a little busy walking over each other and it sounded a bit like a beehive. It seemed like either part could have stood on its own. But I have a minimalist taste, so grain of salt and all that.

    @G-52 : lovely clean sound, nice country playing. Why hesitate?
    @knh555 : the rythm guitar sounds especially good; the lead guitar reminds of Neil Young tone. You found a good way for the guitars not to get in each other´s way. Partially intense interplay.
    @fendrguitplayr : I´m not quite sure how many guitar tracks you played, but the title seems to fit; it sounds a little like country-blues-punk, transforming the bt into another musical landscape.
    @alainvey : with that track you earned your cowboy hat! Happy week too!
    @Mjark : nice ascending riff (with a hint of Fortunate Son)! I like your laidback playing style; good mix of minor and major sequences.
    @guitarsophist : I have no idea how that style you play could be named, but I like it. It makes think of the sixties.
    @ASATKat : I have heard the name Brent Mason, Barney Rubble I have never heard of. I think this track was not easy to work with because of it´s repeating simplicity; you chose to use unpolished rock´n roll, and that is a way.
    @Alan L Cole : seems to me you fell in love with using two guitars! This track has some Lynyrd Skynyrd (live) vibe; nice!

    @knh555 - Wow I like what you've done here, it changes the whole sound of this bt . Very nice!
    @fendrguitplayr - Nice hammer and pull-offs intro and slide work. You've played a sweet delta blues style , Mike.
    @alainvey - Nice thick tone and sweet singing leads, sounds very nice.
    @Mjark - The sweet ascending intro and a fat tone with the harmonies, sounds very nice, Mark.
    @guitarsophist - You have a nice Allman's styling to your track , melodic playing and nice lines all through.
    @ASATKat - Smokin rockin take and a nice raw rock feel to it , it reminded me of Link Wray
    @Alan L Cole - Nice guitar mix I liked how they played off each other and sweet tone all through .Nice one , Alan!
    @udoering- Your country chops never disappoint. Nice interplay with the slide and second lead, sounds very nice.

    I found this one a challenge as well. I did about 30 takes or so (not counting total screw-ups cut off early) and I'm not so happy with this one but here it is. Gear is Mosrite JR kit (neck mini-HB), Peavey Hotfoot Distortion (a Rat variant), Hotone Binary Amp (Matchless Chieftain), Hotone Binary IR Cab (Celestion G12H 2x12 IR), Audacity reverb.
