    I cut it down to around 1:45 - otherwise it may have been a bit too much for a man of my age :twisted:.
    It was fun - bit of guitar harmony in there.

    estreet- The harmony was a sweet touch. I enjoyed the two lead guitars in their call and answer mode. Very nice take.

    Yes indeed, a lot of fun. At first I thought it would be a long time to fill with fast playing, but then the track filled like nothing. Spent more time with the mixing than the recording. Albert Lee MP 90 Mesa Express crunch mode; slide on St Vincent, burn mode with low gain.

    @estreet : southern rules!
    Too old to rock´n roll, too young to die? You don´t sound that way!
    @NWinther : you didn´t let me down!
    @Alan L Cole : there´s the old Alan again! Sweet Rock´n Roll, enjoyed it very much.
    @warthog : nice! Lovely slide playing! Some really great lines there.

    @estreet Really rocking track. Loved the lead in to the "refrain". I'm always a fan of harmony guitars and the dual leads worked darn well!
    @NWinther Wow. Seriously soaring leads during the "refrain". All in all another "NWinther played this" track.
    @Alan L Cole Kinda felt I was driving over the plains in my M1A Abrams, flag flying into battle! Let's Go! Nice transitions from tone to tone.
    @udoering What a great tone for this song! I really dug the Slide playing with a wah... Great theme throughout the song. The end with all the guitars was wild!

    Unpolished noodling but the polished version is still in my mind and I couldn't figure how to get out :p

    @NWinther - Intense and dynamic playing .Tone with some hair on it and the track sounds very nice.
    @Alan L Cole - Great tone and track mix.A sweet rockin track.
    @warthog - David Lindley vibe with the slide. Sweet playing and cool harmonies, definitely in your wheelhouse.
    @udoering- Very nice tone right at the start. The phrasing on both guitars and effect sounds very good . A fun and very good rockin track overall!

    I didn't fix it before the mix so it is what it is. :(

    I don't have this much energy these days. Here's 1:52's worth.

    That's really good playing Mr E, and the 2nd guitar was sweet.
    Holy moly,

    Nice, more of a 90s guitar sound over a hard 70s progression, Killing rock playing, the ending sounded like I went down a black hole,,,
