    @Carl_Tone : did you make that thing longer? Or did you have another, unshortened version? Ahh, no, there is two minute silence at the end! Well, before that I hear a lovely jazzy version with notes out of d minor scale, and those octaves are always nice to hear.

    Thank you Mellencaster for the sharing. Love those fusion funk backers.
    Here's some noodling around it.
    Gear: Fender Telecaster Elite -> Axe-FX II, Bad Cat amp based preset.

    @Mjark : I really dig the carefulness (I have no other word for that) of your playing; it´s like singing a delicate song.

    @Mikejazz : lovely strat tone and a lot of fine lines; sometimes your playing remembers me of Alan´s style some years ago.

    @Mjark - Dig the bluesy and fusion phrasing, sitting perfectly over the backer. Nice dry warm tone.
    @udoering - What a great piece with so many different flavours and tones. Tasty fusion blues lines all along.

    @Carl_Tone - Awesome jazzy articulate phrasing, some complex fast run lines with a super mellow tone, is it a hollowbody guitar?

    @Carl_Tone - Cool and jazzy playing.
    @udoering - Lots of tones make for a cool soundscape.
    @Mjark - Warm tone and cool riffs.
    @Mikejazz - Nice rip, plank spank and bending steel.

    Thx, it’s a 335 type. Yamaha SA 2000 and I used one of “cool picks” jazz style with the black oval. They sound like fingers with a soft attack. :D

    @Carl_Tone nice jazz tone and playing
    @udoering nice bouncy feeling with jazz phrases.
    @Mjark sensitive playing and nice tone
    @Mikejazz lovely tone and playing
    @fendrguitplayr the enveloppe filter (autowah?) sounds good in that context, nice playing

    Tele neck pickup. Like always, I'm dancing around a melody. The turtle has nothing to do with anything.

    @Carl_Tone - Great jazz tone and riffs. Speedy melodic playing. Nice to listen to.
    @udoering - The tone had a nice contrast with the mellowness of the track. A freshness to the riffs too. And wah!
    @Mjark - Your version sounds sadder and more melancholy than the previous ones. Maybe it is that tone which is sort of a beautiful mournful moan.
    @Mikejazz - Nice fusion tone. Jazz/blues fusion style too. An enjoyable listen.
    @fendrguitplayr - Man, you are really spankin' those strings! The pedal (auto-wah of some kind?) gives it a kind of trumpet-like quality.
    @JCL50 - Nice growl on the low registers and then it sings on the high ones. The rhythm guitar definitely adds another dimension.

    Thanks Mike. Spent the day with my Grandson and he kicked my butt (10 months old) so I don't have much in the tank for this one:

    Static is so bad right now, it had taken me 2 minutes to uncling a piece of plastic wrap from my hands, sorry for the static pops.
