    After some trials, I decided to do this:



    Some warts happily included.

    udoering Nice slide playing, that could be a challenge in itself but you've managed quite well. I enjoyed the wah effect it adds to your phrasing and like always you played a solid track.

    I'm finding this track is a little more challenging :)

    @udoering - Intro reminds me of Steppenwolf's "Born to be Wild" Ullrich. Taking no prisoners! Nice job on the slide and the addition of the wah works and is cool.
    @fendrguitplayr - Nice playing with the melody Mike. A nice Country-Rock vibe with nice lines, vibrato and tone.

    Strat neck pickup. Didn't quite know what to do with the second part of the chorus.

    @udoering - Slide sounds great. You somehow countrified some of it. I struggled with the second part of the chorus, but you found something interesting to do. This track inspires melodic playing. The tone got pretty nasty at the end! My oh my!
    @fendrguitplayr - You found a way to fit some nice licks in there that I wouldn't have thought would work. Some creative adaptation going on there.
    @Alan L Cole - The back and forth guitars are very cool! Makes my head turn back and forth. Sweet tone too.
    @DrB - Rockin' hard! I like what you did with the chorus. Lovely raunchy tone too.

    I like the theme you used, nice melody. Fits the tone of the guitar. It is a bit sad tho...

    Nice one!

    Cuttin' slide... Like what you've done. Thanks for sharing.

    I like the direction you are taking... Steve Gaines is a hero of mine. Nice phrasing, double string action. Like it.

    @DrB - Nice rockin' track DrB. Dig the vamp and sweet and gritty riffin'.
    @guitarsophist - Very cool and laidback GS. Dig the approach, great tone and melody.
    @klasaine - Smokin' guitar work and tone Ken. Like how you doubled the BT's melodic elements and the harmonized riffs too.

    @fendrguitplayr - Indeed this track is hot but you made the best of with your Strat. I quite like the double stop it adds some soul and phrasing was very nice
    @Alan L Cole - The dual guitars play off each other very well, sweet tones and phrasing Nicely played, Alan!
    @DrB - Good rocking tone! Melodic with classic rock motifs and you've really got into the groove. Very nice.
    @guitarsophist - Sweet melody and very nice tone. You're telling a tale, very enjoyable.
    @klasaine - Love your tone and tight with the track, sweet phrasing with the harmonies. Sounds very good!

    Squier Jazzmaster deluxe through a Joyo American pedal and added effect for the second guitar track.

    Good slide playing and the wah adds a cool touch.


    Beck and recon with great tones and phrasing, Alan.


    You rocked it and nice riffage too. Yes, Gaines was good, sad tragedy in crash.


    Very pleasant listen, nice tone and lines.


    Great rocker and nice use of the whole fretboard. Liked the low twang a lot.


    This reminds me of the Ventures or what they might sound like in 2020, very cool, Mike. I used a Tele on my take.
