    In my defense I'll say I started mellow and melodic and ended needing to get some aggression out:


    Thanks for the track! I had some cool jams with the record button not running...

    I can tell, nice harmony parts. That was a good idea.

    Don't we always! You have a good sense of melody. That was an unusual tone choice.

    You see, I play southern rock over country tracks because I don't have the country licks you have! WOW! That was Killer! Your licks and tone were super!

    @ghostchord It took me a second to realize you were playing to the same track. You added chords as well. I liked it! It had a real 80's vibe with your tones and playing. Very nice note choices and melodies.
    @fendrguitplayr That sounded really good! I especially like what you played in the middle when the band dropped out. Tasty!

    I hadn't listened to your track prior to playing/recording mine Carl - I see we shared some ideas. Nice playing.

    @ghostchord - nice job on the melody, and i like the comping
    @warthog - melodic take, smooth riffs, and the bridge was cool each time; ala Marshal Tucker, nice
    @fendrguitplayr - toe tapping melody, nice bends in the bridge and throughout; clean tone, nice
    @Mjark - beautiful country tone, very cool bends @ 0:25! sweet phrasing throughout, and I liked the sixths
    @estreet - beautiful dynamic sound, nice swells, sweet aggressive lines, cool triplets; nice track
    @NWinther - big country tone, great riffs as always, some nice hints of the melody in the mix
    @Mikejazz - nice opening bend, sweet clean tone, cool scale runs, nice double stops; pleasing track
    @Alan L Cole - nice baritone intro, well played bridge, I like the lead tone... wild duet and well coordinated; nice country take with personal flair
    @bigbreak - recording skills are incredible, mandolin.. nice; beautiful lead guitar, and the violin-wow! All inclusive exit was cool. Great to hear, thanks for posting.
    @McGlamRock - very cool single lines and double stops, nice ideas and phrasing, twangy and well played
