    @Mjark : gorgeous sound, sweet southern feeling in your playing. Dual guitars are lovely! Did you put a tremolo on the bt or a sidechain compressor?
    @NWinther : I think you are right, a little too much compression, but asides that a typical nice Niels track:)

    Thanks again!

    There's been time to play, got a little flu.. fortunately nothing more serious than that. This is the best medicine.

    Edit: I think I had some latency issues.. and tried to fix it in Audacity like freehand.. cutting a smallest amount with touchpad mouse. Not the most scientific approach.. dunno if it actually went worse the other way.

    - No tremolo. There's some compression on the guitar tracks and final mix.

    Will do that!

    This all is kind of weirdly awesome. Since early this year I didn't touch my guitar like a decade. I'm like former "punk drummer" with no sense of rhytm. Well, everyone had their bands as a teenager.

    Plus a wannabe blues guitarist. Played like piano and stuff as a child, but mostly forced. Fortunately our children play music voluntarily. And they're very gifted.

    Last year couldn't even imagine putting anything public, although being anynomous. But this already been a huge learning experience. I'll never be a finesse player, but I'm listening, sharing, stealing and learning everything I can from you guys and gals and folks..

    Ok, that's whisky talking in me. Back to normal :cool:

    Edit: I mean, you folks still rock!

    Thanks to Paul Franklin for the steel guitar and Rob Ickes for the dobro.

    Wow! Some big names landing here. I’ve seen Paul with the Time Jumpers. Unbelievable, he can alter space and time.

    Special guest visit from a famous riff in the end. I can play to this track all day ... HSS Strat bridge.

    I have missed a few tracks and I am late on this one because I put in a new SSD and had to reinstall everything. What a pain! But now this old computer is fast, fast, fast. Strat neck pickup.
