    Don't know if it's just me, but I often find it surprisingly difficult to improvise convincingly over progressions based on pure major chords in a rock, fusion or jazz setting. It can very easily start sounding a bit dorky.

    Speaking for myself, when faced with a track like this, the Dickey Betts licks tend to start coming out :oops: Or Metheny and Mike Stern if it's jazz or fusion...

    Old guy and very new to recording. And with all life has been handing me lately it took a little time to get to this, hope you like it.

    edit: if someone would kindly clue me into how to embed the track rather than just the link I would appreciate it.

If you open your song in sound cloud there's a share icon. It'll give a short link -Soundclound/user name/ title which will automatically embed here.

    Nicely played!

    Thank you @Mjark. That is what I did for the above post. And that's what I see, soundcloud/user-9 digit number/title.
    Should I have put that on the media icon in the tool bar?

    thanks for the kind words.

    That was very nice, a slightly fuzzy od just enough to let you know but not at all overriding your pretty emotive msg
