    Here's my unexpectedly hurried take (my wife changed her mind about going shopping this afternoon). I did get to try out my new pedal, a Rowin Slow Hand (Mooer Slow Gear clone), in the first part and experimented with some high gain models on my Hotone Binary Amp with matching IR's on the Binary IR Cab. I started off with the Tweed Deluxe, then the Friedman BE100, next the Matchless Chieftain (my favorite) and lastly the Soldano SLO100. I used the Mosky Spring Reverb throughout, an Ammoon delay on the quiet part and a Rowin Flanger on the last part. Guitar is Carvin Bolt kit (SD StagMag bridge parts 1 & 2, SD Jazz parts 3 &4)

    bgmacaw The intro was nice with the swells or a reverse delay if I had to guess. Nice phrasing all through and a good mixture of tones to keep it interesting to the end.
    ASATKat That was sad news and to all was lost on that day. Very nice intro and the melodic phrasing was emotive, the break and into the modulation was a quite nice transition to the outro

    This is nicely expressive, great soft yet bold blues like tone, that's the great thing about blues tone. What's your tone chain?

    I love swell fx, and with some beautiful playing. Very nice take.
    I like your high notes.

    Thanks Kat. Your track was very nice; sweet melody and great tone.

    Here is a graphic of my guitar recording chain:

    Hmm, I take it the monster on the left is you lol? It looks pretty simple, I take it your daw has modeling? Is it COSM? How old is the recorder, year I mean?

    I picked up my guitar after almost a 40 year break in 2014. That's when I also bought the BR-800 pictured and started recording. It does provide COSM. I don't use DAW.

    @Raimonds - Lovely tone, nice slow relaxed feeling, builds intensity naturally into a frenzy.
    @knh555 - Big spacious tone, like a canyon.Very melodic licks. All very track appropriate. Nice ending flourish!
    @Mjark - Slow, relaxed, reflective kind of feeling. I like the way you handled the quiet passage and the modulation.
    @JCL50 - With that pun-ish title I was expecting something that sounded like Jimi Hendrix playing the Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock, with lots of dive bombs and pyrotechnics. But this is sweet in tone and attitude. Nicely played. What's a pincaster?

    @bgmacaw - I couldn't keep track of the models and pedals you listed, but it sounded like an cello at the beginning, and them more violin-like, then like a hammered instrument of some kind, then a kazoo, all very interesting.
    @ASATKat - Sounds almost acoustic at the intro then starts to sing a bit. Interesting chord melodies.
    @Alan L Cole - Nice tone. The quiet part is very melodic and nicely played. Lots of intensity after the modulation.
    @boop - I like the little "boop, boop" stuff in the space before the track starts. Cool. Nice tone and phrasing. Rather abrupt ending though.

    I was thinking of playing like Jimi but I couldn't find my silk kimono jacket :).

    Sorry if I don't mention you. a few thoughts:
    @Mellencaster tone and playing suit the track very well.
    @guitarsophist your clean tone and sensitive playing are very enjoyable
    @Raimonds awesome playing, about the tone, in the first few bars I was thinking I wouldn't like it, but it works really well indeed.
    @Mjark I like what you did to this song. sounds great. I would have just put a little less modulation on the chords part, but I may be wrong about that.
    @Alan L Cole What a tone!

    Alan L Cole A dynamic take! Sweet tone, it definitely sounds like P90s, manic and sweet melodic lines. Nice!

    boop Sensitive playing intro, nice! Nice soft cleanish tone and good phrasing all through, the ending was unexpected :)

    Isn't your BR-800 a DAW?

    @bgmacaw - Nice volume swells and riffs throughout.
    @ASATKat - Melancholy and nice tribute with good riffage.
    @Alan L Cole - Sweet tone and lines throughout, Alan.
    @boop - Very cool noodles and expressive lines but the ending?
