    I was hoping to do a collaboration track this week but I don't have the time to edit a track and make it work for this weekend , maybe at a future date.

    Here's this week's track . Enjoy!

    Hey, I wasn´t sure if I could make something out f it when I heard the track initially, but I think I could. Tried to use the guitar more like a voice. Hope you like it.



    Ha, I was thinking (and trying) to add a second guitar track, but could contain myself!

    udoering You didn't need a second guitar for your take, it sonically feels right. Your phrasing is quite nice all through and with emotions. Nicely structured!
    NWinther Has an acoustical tone, very nice. Sweet lines and as always very dynamic playing with some unfamiliar styling that we don't hear you play regularly. Nice!

    @udoering - Smooth tone and riffs in the groove from the get-go.
    @NWinther - Breezy, airy and different from what you usually do, but still cool.
    @Mellencaster - Cool intro and then some sweet lines with a jazzy vibe.
    @beagle - Your playing and tone is very cool but wish it was a bit louder in the mix.
    @Alan L Cole - Your signature vibrato and tone with fluid runs make this a great listen.

    Went back to my 'standard' gear on this one. Mosrite JR style kit (neck GM Songbird mini-HB), Hotone Binary Amp (Matchless Chieftain model), Hotone Binary IR Cab (Matchless 2x12 + Room IR).

    This one seemed really familiar, so after doing this...




    I poked around and realized that two years ago, I did this...




    The older one is a bit heavy handed.

    @udoering - Sounds good Ullrich. Nice guitar tones and melodic riffin'.
    @NWinther - A different vibe from you Niels, almost acoustic in nature. Pretty playing.
    @Mellencaster - Beautiful intro Mike and sweet tone from the semi-hollow body. Cool delay and playing.
    @beagle - Indeed a Lovely Lady Dave. Nice tone and melodic dance with her.
    @fendrguitplayr - Lovely melodic playing Mike. Sweet tone too!
    @bgmacaw - Nicely emotive and melodic BG. Sweet take.
    @Raimonds - A different and cool approach tonally but still strongly emotive.
    @Mjark - Another beautiful track with great tone and sweet melodic elements. Nicely played Mark.
    @knh555 (Familiar) - At the risk of sounding redundant, a beautiful track and tone, sweetly played.

    A little late on this one. Agile AL-2000, neck pickup, a GFS Vintage '59. Cheap guitar, cheap pickup, but I like it.

    @udoering - Pleasant, happy sound. Just groovin' along.
    @NWinther - Sort of a Munchkin tone, unusual for you, but works well with this track.
    @Mellencaster - Mellow tone, relaxed playing and nice trills!
    @beagle - Nice intro! The reverb and delay makes it sound a little far away, but nice playing.
    @Alan L Cole - Nice tone and nice jazzy playing.
    @fendrguitplayr - Mellow tone, sweet lines, very listenable.
    @bgmacaw - Relaxed feel, nice lines, and your distinctive tone.
    @Raimonds - The sustaining tone is almost organ like. An interesting take.
    @Mjark - Nice arpeggios at the beginning. Nice hammer-ons and slides. Actually, nice stuff throughout.
    @knh555 - New one: Sweet and slow. Almost reflective. Nice. Old one: I like the tone of the new one better. Still, nice lines.

    @NWinther : the acoustic guitar and your playing gave the track such a sunny atmosphere, that I immediately thought of brazilian music, though there is no latin vibe in it.
    @Mellencaster : sweet sound for sure, and expressive, vocal-like playing!
    @beagle : I agree with Mike, but your guitar needs some more volume - it´s hard to hear it against the background.
    @Alan L Cole : lovely playing throughout, Alan. But how did you get that sound of your guitar? There is something in it, sometimes I think it sounds like a fretless instrument!?
    @fendrguitplayr : very nice! Sounds like this is your song.
    @bgmacaw : another lovely version, making it fully your own.
    @Raimonds : a quite different approach; what did you use to get this sound between guitar and synth? Sounds good, anyhow.
    @Mjark : yes, like Alan said, another beautiful track. Lovely tone indeed and melodic playing.
    @knh555 : I am repeating myself, but: lovely tone and playing!

    @guitarsophist : your guitar has a round but clear tone; no matter what the cost, it sounds good (as your playing).

    I knew as soon as I heard the backing that we'd played it before, in a Strat-Talk jam, so I had a dig.

    I only had the finished track. The low guitar volume is a pity, I tried to boost it and seemed to have succeeded, but it doesn't seem to come across when it's uploaded to Soundcloud.
