    Thanks!

    Tried something called normalizing in Audacity. Not sure if good or bad thing.

    Experimental track for recording. Using a Fender Strat through a Yamaha THR100 on the right channel and a Blackstar HT1R on the left channel, a multitude of delays and both set on the high gain channels. I was really surprised at how much more the Yamaha has a touch sensitivaty than the Blackstar when I dug in on this track. Usual slip up and clams :)

    @fendrguitplayr - That canyon sure does have an echo! Some really cool bends too!
    @ASATKat - The BT sounds distant, kind of like in "Hey, Mr. Spaceman" where the aliens are listening to the Byrds on their space radio. This one is almost ambient. Very relaxing!
    @udoering - Crunchy yet melodic. I don't know what the makers of that video are thinking when they suggest playing a B minor scale. It won't work. I went with A major (or E mixo, as Mjark suggested, same notes different feel), as it sounds like you did. Your track ends up sounding very positive, upbeat and entertaining.
    @warthog - This is the arena rock version! Nice tone and nice combination of freeflowing and staccato lines. Got bluesy toward the end.
    @NWinther - Wow lots of stuff going on in the intro! Soaring onto the stratosphere, or maybe even the ionosphere, like always.
    @Mjark - Volume pedal? Sounds cool. I haven't had a dog in years, but the condo complex where I live is run by little dogs. Most people have two so they can keep each other company while they are at work, but now no one is going to work, so the little dogs get more walks. The dogs make their people get up at 7:00 am. I think the dogs run the Homeowners Association too.
    @Thoughtfree - I think I know that song but I can't think of it. Your track sounds carefree rather than thoughtfree. I like the clean tone.
    @Seasicksailor - Interesting tone with lots of texture. Nicely structured melodic lines too.
    @bgmacaw - The slide glides nicely over the progression. It certainly has a voice of its own.

    Hi all,

    Here is mine:



    I did not stop... I think I am in this "elevator music" phase.

    @fendrguitplayr - Love your lines especially the one ASATkat referred to . The flanger and a strat are a perfect combination.
    @ASATKat - Very pleasing ambient tone to the ears and lovely lines played. Dreamy!
    @guitarsophist - Very nice add with the harmonic notes and the organ track. Very good clean tone and your subtle playing work well with the track.
    @udoering - Lovely crunch tone and a fine melodic theme . The chord riffs sounded great!
    @warthog - Very good rock tone and expressively played , some classic motifs nailed.
    @NWinther - Your tone sounds great.Sweet dynamic playing all through , Niels.
    @Mjark - Your thick tone fits quite nicely and lovely lines! Congratulation on the new dog, mine lays beside me at all times and I mean I can't move without him following me :)
    @Thoughtfree - Lovely intro and melodic phrasing. A real nice clean tone with lovely lines.
    @Seasicksailor - Rotary effect was one of my thoughts to use. I'm glad you used it sounds very nice and sweet lines.
    @bgmacaw - The slide fits nicely with the track, the phrasing sounds good!
    @SbS - Chordal intros are always good and what a pleasing fat tone. The wah was cool and nicely played.
    @Alan L Cole - Nice intro, sweet tone, and love the style and playing on your track.
    @simoncroft - Love the tone and theme, sounds sweet Simon.
    @JCL50 - Great tone and playing JC.
    @DrB - Wow you did the full 10 minutes, impressive and kept it interesting all through! Just like JC track, lovely playing, and effects. The fingers must be raw after that :cool:

    Volume pedal? No you probably heard that fadd in not I was trying to get rid of! We had two little dogs too, now a kind of big one.

    I wouldn't mind having a dog again, but I am going to wait until I am fully retired. The last dog I had was a free spirit who could jump over any fence designed by man. I think she could have jumped over the 30' tall border wall. My next dog will have short legs.

    Thanks again for the tracks... This is one where I feel there's more potential but here's a take:

    First off, I'm not normal, so it all sounds great to me.
