    Thanks! I used as much staccato Peegoo as I could muster.

    Hi Alan , your tone on this track has a nice ballsy Space Rock Vibe Tone going on . Very expressive too.

    Hi Ullrich , I like how you decided to give the track a song treatment with both your left and right side guitars .Good playing on both sides .
    I Love what you did at 2:05 ...you backed off on the right side to give the part on the left side its phrases then you sneaked in the wha part gradual w dynamics ...that was excellent ..I would love to hear how your track would sound if there was more of those type of dynamics in the mix .This is not meant to be a crit it's meant to be more of a pat on the back w the hope you try that type of thing out in the future.
    as it stands you had some great stuff going on .

    Hi Mike ! Wow Loud And Proud Big Arena Party Rock . Your track came out pretty cool actually .....Guitars could come down a tad but over all conceptually and playing wise I applaud what you did here the playing was Badass

    I like your added Funk chord accent parts . Nice melodic playing , also I like how you mixed the guitars volume wise to float within the songs pocket ...this gels nice with the track ...near the end changing up to a more crunchy tone was also a nice touch ...your playing and ideas exhibited a potential of you having lot of creativity ...

    I don't know if I'd call this funk. I don't really know what it is.

    Thank you sir.

    I'm using these challenges to work on compositional skills--to approach a tune from the angle of having a beginning, middle, and end. I'm nowhere near the chops level as most of you guys but I'm here to learn as much as I can from you all. I do appreciate the critiques--both positive and negative.

    Here's what my actual session looks like .

    My guitar was done in one take . I wound up doubling it and working 2 different EQ settings for the 2 tracks .

    That was cool! You 'really' made a song out of it.
    Phase or flange? I love it.

    You have good melodic 'sense' and the tonal changes you employ help the song to develop. Keep it up!

    @HoodieMcFoodie : well done, Phil! Guitars sound good and, as stated above, you made a song out of it.

    Thank you very much for this detailed feedback. I understand what you are aiming at, and you´re right. I have worked with different volumes, but I was not completely satisfied with the result.

    Hi Ullrich !

    I'm glad you took my feedback on your track in the spirit it was intended too be .In the grand scheme of things I'm just another set of ears ...lol

    I realize most guys here are just looking to have a little fun to play over a BT and then listen what everyone else has played all in good fun. I'm pretty much here for the same reason , yet I am open to hear critiques Yay or Nay on my playing on a BT .

    nice rapping with you

    Kenny

    :lol:

    My first real Guitar Lesson was in or around 1967 . The Guitar teacher asked me " hey kid what do you want to learn ?"
    I told him I wanted to learn how to play Secret Agent Man .He looked at me and then down at the floor and slowly shook his head a few times. Then he got up , walked across his studio to a file cabinet , reached in and came back with The Mickey Baker Book , a book of clarinet studies and a book of Sax studies ...
    He stood over me while he handed me these books and he said too me " this is what we will working on" ...
    Funny thing , I still don't know how to play Secret Agent Man :p

    I worked through Mickey Baker's book about 10 years ago. The line that has been burned into my brain is, "Play this exercise in all scales and modes."


    It certainly is quite a journey from Johnny Rivers.

    @Raimonds : you have been off quite a while, and I am pleased that you participated again. Seems you didn´t unlearn how to play guitar :)
