    Thanks man! I enjoyed your take on this as well. I really liked the chordal approach of your first one.

    Yea, it really does stink, to hear you put your playing down, don't do that.

    Digging your micro bends, b3 upwards but not quite to the major 3rd. So funky. You sound like you have good band experience, remember bands, when people would come together to play music? that was a long time ago.

    Yes, 70s was a good call, you play really nice classic 70s LA. You do sound like you've soaked up some Carlton.

    Yes. I do remember bands. Good lord hopefully someday soon again....
    Thanks! Yeah the keyboard track with those shifting maj/min tonalities really offers up a lot of places to use half step bends and movement. You were zeroing in on that as well I think.

    @Mellencaster : you really surprised me! And you are right, you are as far away fom funk as one can be; you made your absolutely own thing of it.
    @SbS : I like the clean guitar sections, nicely built up. And I like the fuzzed solo guitar in the last section. Those thrown in fuzz guitar licks in between seem to have no relation to the rest of the track (just my 2c).
    @Bullfweet : such a lovely clean sound! I also like your playing, you found somethig like a theme for them changes!
    @Alan L Cole : cool idea to use two identical souding guitar tracks.
    @notroHnhoJ : sounds very good, glad you joined us!

    Yeah. I had to make sone patches and somehow got an idea about hooligan -like guitar coming in between. But the execution might not worked that well.

    That was way cool. Nailed the 70's vibe and tastefully interacted with the keyboard solo. Man, you hit those changes well!

    Thanks! This was a fun one, I really dug the keyboard track, it was a challenge to track with it.
