    @bullfrogblues : lovely sound; didn´t understand what you meant with the break, but your playing clearly shows Blackmore influences - nice!
    @ghostchord : reminds me of Thunderstruck; well, you found your way to deal with the track!
    @KennyWTelejazz : like Alan said. Wondered if you would play this without any jazzy influences - mostly, but there some runs ... :)

    Hi Alan ...Wow , Love what you did here and where you took this song with your creativity ...
    Great Ideas and real nice playing

    Hi Ullrich , I like to do what you do workflow wise by sleeping on it and revisiting the song the next day w fresh set of ears . Your song sounds very tight . All your guitar parts have a real nice tone and very good phrasing . I like how you changed it up in the section where the BT has a little gtr solo ...
    The sound of the Wah part was a good sound choice and it added a lot to the treatment of the songs elements ...

    all the best,
    Kenny

    Hi Alan ! thank you for the kind word . I sincerely appreciate hearing it .

    I feel happy to be living at a time where I can drop peanuts and or paper boy money on a guitar and still have something that I can play that sounds good and feels OK ...

    all the best
    Kenny

    Hi Ullrich , I think I lasted a little over a 90 seconds before I started sneaking in some Jazz Phrased Runs ...

    Thank you for saying the kind words you said .

    I Love how you added the Organ parts ...if I had more time I would have loved to do something along those lines myself ...
    I always dig how you take the BT and make it your own by adding your own spin on the extra instruments you choose.

    all the best,
    Kenny

    @ASATKat - Interesting start. 60's style jam style
    @NWinther - Nice playing, especially second half and the extended ending
    @Alan L Cole - Kind of a fusion-ish take.
    @warthog - Synth-like tone is interesting as are the ideas you played.
    @Thoughtfree - Bass solo! Disco! What's not to like?
    @estreet - Nice wah and good playing
    @Mjark - The track wasn't my kind of thing either. I should have cut it short too. For me, you got kind of an early 80's MTV or Heavy Metal (movie) feel.
    @SbS - Started laid back, kind of quiet, then it picked up
    @sdsy1212 - Good playing
    @Mellencaster - I think you got 70's rock feel
    @bigbreak - Welcome to the Electric Banana circa 1968. Amazing playing as always.
    @udoering - Nice wah near the end. Had kind of a late 70's feel to me
    @bullfrogblues - Nice clean playing with some overdriven tones in places
    @ghostchord - I had the same problem. Your experiment came out good though
    KennyWTelejazz - Good rock playing
