    After the one shots it was fun to make somewhat more sophisticated:

    Thanks!

    Trying to learn recording without excessive sound clipping.

    @Alan L Cole : very spacey indeed! Really nice playing.
    @Squier by Squier : so you also added a rythm guitar with wah! Your melody playing reminds me of the early seventies.

    Thank you!

    @Alan L Cole : Tones, sounds and flow are like from outer space, but some of the licks are yet traditional. I like that, it's a powerful combo.

    @udoering : Two guitars are separated nicely, but still playing together and talking with each other. I like the strong tones and Wah got some time in the end too.

    OK. I tried but I can't seem to connect to this backing track :( ... I might try some more later. What I had really isn't worth sharing...

    @Mjark Psychedelica mixed with "Black and Blue" period Stones - I like it!

    There was a guy on TDPRI who was asking about pickups to sound like Jimi Hendrix and people said that other parts of the signal chain were more important, but this inspired me to try. So this is a strat neck pickup through a Fuzzface sim that is nearly turned off, a Plexi sim, and a 4x12 Greenback sim, with a tad of compression and some Dragonfly Early Reflections. I can't play like Hendrix, but the tone is kinda, sorta there. See what you think.

    There’s nothing funk about that backing track.

    Please enlighten us all with a recording of you playing.

    It's fun whether or not it's funk!

    @Alan L Cole - Flying in space! Great tone and I like the way the phrasing changes up.
    @udoering - When you do a double guitar track, they always converse in interesting way. The low register stuff is especially effective, and then it is repeated by the other guitar way up the neck. Very cool.
    @Squier by Squier - The wah rhythm and the long sustained notes on the other guitar go together well. Very nice!
    @Mjark - I like the tone and the repetitive riffs. It all adds up to an interesting approach.
    @Peegoo - I like the opening riff. It establishes a theme for the whole track. Lots of interesting hammer-ons and bends too.
    @NWinther - Your signature cosmic tone. Really soaring riffs. Very nice.
    @ASATKat - Haunting tone as always. An emotional expression. Very intense. Nice stuff.
    @klasaine - Sounds good completely in the box! But my tracks are always in the box these days. I liked the Wes Montgomery sounding octaves. Very cool. Some Steely Dan sort of stuff at the end.
