    This is for all those minor chords that always got stepped on and bullied by the major chords,

    A little late I am; had recorded it yesterday, but decided to wait one day and relisten before putting it up - I wasn´t sure about it.

    Beside your playing, I like the way you do it, giving room for THE SONG.

    @Thoughtfree : really good, non repetitive rythm stuff!
    @ghostchord : I think the chosen title is quite appropriate, and the soundscape you created goes very well with the backing track, as if it was intended that way.
    @NWinther : it´s unusual that you work with (occasional) multiple guitars. You dialed in a really nice sound, note choice creates a certain easiness, so Cappucino is a good title. Lovely track.
    @warthog : you are right with the good parts. And I also found it difficult to create a catching melody.
    @estreet : lovely melody with a jazzy flavour, convincing clean sound - professional outcome again!
    @Mjark : a different approach to deal with the bt, and it works beautifully. Great riff!
    @fendrguitplayr : your text indicates that you are not quite satisfied with your track, if I got you right? Well, yes, there are some passages that could have been realized with some changes, but all in all you delivered an interesting and varied track with multiple instruments. When the horns came in, it took me while to realize that they do not belong to the backing track. So, to sum it up, a good track!
    @JCL50 : sweet sound on the clean guitar! Are those swells or did you use an effect? Good interaction with the second guitar, too. I wished you played a longer solo with the distorted guitar.
    @Alan L Cole : you really took us on a ride through the scales! I like that you gave the Rhodes it´s place.
    @middy : like thoughtfree, you created a good rythm track, I dig it.

    Far from funk and raw.

    @fendrguitplayr - Cool brass ensemble with your lead guitar and a very sweet take.
    @JCL50 - Awesome clean tone. The wah and lead guitar complement each other very nicely.
    @ASATKat -Sweet lines all through and a lovely take.
    @Alan L Cole - Lovely tone and playing all through, Alan. The video fits well with the track.
    @middy - The funk rhythm playing and lead sounded very good, just like thoughtfree.
    @udoering - Lovely sound and the wah through the Rhodes lead section fits well. Very nicely arranged and played.

    It's a wah pedal. It sounds a little like a volume pedal in the context of this track.

    Log in to SoundCloud and look at your tracks. Click the button with 3 dots by the track you want to share. Click share, then copy the URL that appears in the text box and paste it into a reply here in the forum.

    alright! I think this worked. Ok, my best attempts at something 70s sounding. It was fun and challenging working around and with those electric piano changes.
