    As Jimmy Rogers told me---'Play the lump.' Nice Lockwood/Louis Myers style stuff though...

    Thanks for a such a straight up Chicago blues. This would be played at the blues jams, sometimes 20x a night lol.

    I Haven't been to a blues jam for quite a while, years =/ , I used to go 2x week,

    This is kind of raw. Also, this track is long! The only way to not run out of ideas is not to have any ideas at all and just play. Casino neck pickup through a Tweed Bassman sim.

    @Mjark - Blue, smooth and in the groove Mark.
    @ASATKat - Raw and Blue ASATKat.
    @ghostchord - That's what Anton Chigurh would say, GC.
    @bigbreak - Sweet blues track and killer harp wailin' Russ. I bet Buddy would've loved to sit in.
    @Squire by squier - Gots Blue's juice SBS. Cool.
    @fendrguitplayr - Creppin' Blues - dig it Mike. Nice tone and dynamics. Sweet vibrato too.
    @NWinther - Barroom brawlin' Blues Niels. Cool chicken wire wailin'.
    @guitarsophist - Sweet tone, bends ad phrasing GS.
    @DrB - Sweet ride, and the car's cool too. DrB prescribed Blue's horse power - smookin'.

    My take on this sounds sort of like the cheezy stuff you hear in...'adult' movies.

    All that's missing are the line, "Hey, did you ladies order a pizza?" and a wah-wah guitar part.

    @Mjark : lovely sound and straight blues playing. Like the variations, theme and improvisation.
    @ASATKat : some sweet licks and audible passion.
    @ghostchord : a nice little random! There is some disturbing background noise on the guitar track; maybe you can find out what it s and eliminate when you do that track again.
    @bigbreak : short and sweet! Great harmonica playing!!
    @Squier by Squier : some sweet stuff in the interplay between the guitars! Like it quite a lot.
    @fendrguitplayr : a surprisingly clean sound, I mean very clean.Dynamic down to earth playing.
    @NWinther : I guess this is not a classical Chicago Blues, but it´s danish variant. The longer it goes, ye more fierce it gets.
    @guitarsophist : "smokey" is an adjective that describes your sound quite well! Like how give the notes their room and the quiet passages, giving yourself and the listener a little halt.
    @Alan L Cole : your guitar seems to rant at us :) It´s more a matter of sound than your actual playing, I think. Anyhow, you played that thing expressive if I perceive such emotions.
    @DrB : in the very first seconds your guitar sounded like a harmonica; very powerful blues playing.
    @Peegoo : I don´t think I understand what you are talking about, but never mind, you are playing a powerful guitar, too. The last part comes a bit surprising. And I had pizza today.
    @Thoughtfree : some quite creative lines!

    @Peegoo - I didn't think that was cheezy at all Geno. Nicely paced and executed classic Blues based playing - great tones too.
    @Thoughtfree - Great phrasing and tone Throughtfree. Sweet and blusey riffin' - nice!
    @udoering - Another track with nice phrasing and clean tone Ullrich. Dig the raunchy tone starting at the 2:52 mark.

    What sort of noise? Just white noise? I do find out that on GarageBand when I go to distorted sounds it tends to sound quite noisy by default ... I'm not quite sure why. I need to debug that a little. I can filter that out with the noise gate usually.
