    Thanks for the track. Another one I couldn't quite chew on. Be warned, this is a weird one:

    Thanks! Had some good fun here. And my hand felt a whole lot better today, as the weather is warmer now.

    OOf, I'm calling this one the Ugly Duckling Funk cause I couldn't find a theme and ended up just jamming over it. Some good parts in it. :)

    Thanks Mike for a nice backing track that makes you think a bit .
    I chopped between the Keyboard/Non Keyboard versions again and also shortened it.

    Thoughtfree That's a sweet funk track! Lovely playing!
    ghostchord Made it your own , nice! Great tone and with the delays and a sweet theme.
    NWinther Sweet 2 guitar track, they complement each other well. love the soundscape swells and lovely tone.
    warthog It was an enjoyable track and your tone sounded sweet, you've stayed true to the funk style and transitioned nicely into rock style ending. Very nice.
    estreet Your tone is great. A slight jazz vibe adds refinement to your track and editing the keys later in the track worked well and with the panning guitars . Lovely take, Carl.

    Mjark Very enjoyable to hear your spin on this track and the originality of your phrasing and the multiple guitar tracks. Very good.

    Started out great, loosened up as you went along, but you kept it together. Not so ugly, duckling.

    Great tone! Lovely major key jazz-funk licks. Some nice Roy Ayers feel... loved it.
