    This is my take, man, I had a bad time being lazy on the beat, two hrs later and nothing left, I pulled this one off, the rest is history lol, tomorrow I'll try again, not my bag, so it's good schoolin' for me.

    Not the best Tele tone for this, this is where my ASAT sort of fails me, it's much more a blues/jazz guitar, makes me want a straight up Tele, I change that, I want a Nacho Tele.

    Bigbreak, this sort of production just might give you that big break.

    For some reason I keep wanting the chord progression to go somewhere else. I'm sort of wanting Bm-A (what a beauty) - D to go Bm-A again and then to resolve somewhere else. So I kept finding myself at that last D in my lead wanting to do something else but needing to restart, which was quite odd. Anyone else hears this?

    EDIT: ok so for me it just wants to repeat for another bar it seems (ending on D again sounds good).

    I guess it just sort of reminds me of another song... Summer of 69 maybe so that song is pulling me a certain way... 'Cause Bm->A->D->G and repeat.

    EDIT: Pretty sure this is what's going on, I played that progression so many times it's drilled to go a certain way.

    Well, I am late again. Started to record yesterday in the morning, finished the song in the evening and then, luckily, I decided to let it rest over night. Relistening today, I made changes in the mix and re-recorded one section. Now - I think - it´s hearable. Albert Lee MP 90 and Standard Telecaster.

    @ghostchord : sounds good! To the way you record: I think you record both track and guitar with a microphone; if so, Ithink having less reverb / delay on your guitar track would help the sound.
    @warthog : when you start it sounds less Southern, more country. But then the harmonized guitars come in, and from now on it sounds southern. Well done!
    @Mjark : sweet clean sound, good country playing throughout. Love the part after the break.
    @fendrguitplayr : like how you start in the deeper registers and then go up.
    @estreet : is that still pure country? I hear a lot of rockabilly. Like the pedal steel (?)
    @NWinther : Niels, you can play whatever style you wanted, it´s always so unique you. Great swells.
    @G-52 : nice clean sound, sweet country licks. Bt is a little low in volume.
    @Mikejazz : from your previous contrbutions I somehow had exspected something with more rock sounds and playing. You really got in touch with country playing, cudos!
    @Alan L Cole : at first I thought "classic country", but then you soon went southern, the guitars go so well together!
    @bigbreak : diversified and skilled - love it!
    @McGlamRock : nice and fast with a little bit of rock´n roll.

    Nice duel guitar tracks Ullrich. The double stops are nice and the guitar panning sits well, IMO. Cool!

    @ghostchord - I think you've made it your own and nothing wrong with that . Very nice.
    @warthog - The harmonized guitars fit well, a sweet theme, and very nicely played.
    @Mjark - Sweet country licks and playing!
    @fendrguitplayr - Sweet lines and a nice vibe all through, Mike!
    @estreet - A bit of country and rockabilly and very nicely played. Those guitar swells sounded sweet.
    @NWinther - It has an outlaw style and a sweet version played.
    @G-52 - Very nice lines and playing, Andrew!If If I had to name it, country shuffle would be fitting.
    @Mikejazz -A sweet country tone and a well played version.
    @Alan L Cole - Well done on both guitars, they sound very good together and I enjoyed your interpretation of this track.
    @bigbreak - Hats off to the fiddle player and yourself!
    @McGlamRock - Nice! Very nice lines all through and well played.
    @ASATKat -A well rounded version maybe not a country vibe but still a sweet interpretation.
    @udoering - Sweet melody and both guitars work in unison. A lot of ear candy on your track mixing.Very nice.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Pretty much all my recording is direct into the computer (through an audio interface, no pedals/effects outside the computer) and the track is also imported into the computer... There is probably ton of reverb on the "lead" track, is that what you're hearing? It's also possible there's some delay I haven't completely dialed in (I'm basically with the default settings there and it sounded ok to my not so good ears). This had four tracks/guitars playing rhythm (2 using open shape chords and 2 higher up the neck) and another single track playing the melody/notes/lead (that last one had a lot of reverb/echo/drive/weird stuff, drive doesn't go to 11 on my virtual amp here).

    Lead track:
