    @Mjark Nice one Mjark - it's a great warm sound, nice licks and it's always nice to hear someone responding dynamically to changes in the track. Towards the end I can feel you willing the track to build with you as 'live' musicians would.

    @Thoughtfree That's great backwards sound and you've managed to avoid the over-random effect it sometimes results in. In facts some parts worked really really well - almost like a jazzy muted trumpet. It would be interesting to hear a conversation between that and a forwards guitar part too.

    Thanks....hehe I do try to change sounds......and since I used to make pedals, I have a few reference units left from the days now gone....some of them are moddet slighty now that I do not use them for reference anymore, and have a few more somewhere....but I sold most as I do not like have too much gear...it is a distraction....these are the ones I use the most...just to entertain myself....and I always end up sounding like my self for better or worse...haha but no news there....
    Have some extra fuzz pedals and a few delays....and one old Guyatone compressor that I always use....

    @Mjark : guitar sounds very good indeed; your playing is relaxed, multiple guitar lines sound good together.
    @fendrguitplayr : solid playing, your guitar sound fits here so well. Nice track!
    @HoodieMcFoodie : merry christmas down under!
    @ASATKat : the southern bt seems to have carried you away, nice!
    @Thoughtfree : how did you made that? At first I thought reverse echo, but the notes fitted too well with the chord changes and the timing. Some sitar effect? Ah, I just saw your explanation; very nice idea!
    @bgmacaw : kongpressor sounds good. I am sure it enhances your slide playing. Good track!
    @estreet : well played, Carl! Good idea to combine acoustic and electric slide.
    @NWinther : Niels goes southern! But it´s more Niels than southern. Like your expressive playing.
    @warthog : lovely southern rock, yes! Dual lines are great.
    @JCL50 : a powerful track; the guitar lines in the background sound so good, enriching the track.
    @tooloud : beautiful dual lines, energetic solo playing!

    just a few comments:

    @Mjark this amp sounds good. looks like a very interesting piece of gear.
    @bgmacaw compressor and slide work well together.
    @NWinther your tone is perfect with the track.

    Nice track!

    A couple of curveballs I didn't quite get used to here and there, but I couldn't give it the attention it deserved.

    @Mjark - Very cool new amp and sounds very nice! Soft opening lines to a sweet build up! Nice spacing for tension and lovely lines.
    @fendrguitplayr - Southern rock all the way, Mike! Sweet lines and playing.
    @ASATKat - Those incidental chimes add to the mix in a cool way. A sweet blues-rock feel and one of my favorites that you've done on here. Very nice!
    @Thoughtfree - Very cool effect and interesting how you've come up with it .Melodic and very entertaining interpretation.
    @bgmacaw - Your signature slide playing sounds very good with the BT and very nicely played.
    @estreet - I think it's the first I've heard you play slide, nice! Lovely contrast between both instruments and a sweet polish version, Carl.
    @NWinther - Sweet lines and great tone! You couldn't resist the full length track, lol. Nice!
    @warthog - Billy Gibbons vibe! Very nice harmony and that saturated tone sound very sweet.
    @knh555 - Quite liked the clean tone with the reverb. Dreamy and the slide add a sweet element to your track.
    @JCL50 - Sweet mix with both guitars. The B bender sounds very nice and a cool interpretation.
    @tooloud - Allman Brothers come to mind.Great take.
    @udoering - Very nice harmony and lovely guitar track mixing. Good Southern vibe and phrasing all! through
    @Seasicksailor - Sweet interpretation and it rocks.
    @Alan L Cole - Very nicely played. Love the harmonics and trills, Alan.
    @KennyWTelejazz - Lovely version, Kenny with all the added mixes!
