I had to struggle with this track - or with me, depends on your angle of view. Anyone here who knows this, when you can´t find something significant to play along a track? Well, 'I finally managed to record something that is far from good but is a little above noodling. Contains technical issues, of course.



Will listen to your tracks later, now I need a rest from the bt :).

Here's my one take on this track. I went for a clean sound and put a lot of reverb to hide the mistakes (I hope it works :))

Homemade tele-shaped guitar neck HB. a little compressor, tremolo and delay.

A little remark: to me the title of the track is a little confusing. To me it's in D (notes are the same but not their roles), and the "choruses" are in Bm.

udoering- What I hear is a very nicely played version, Ullrich with a lovely tone with an emotive feel. If you mean technical by "this will work " then "will this work?" is noodling, I guess I live in the latter quote :(
JCL50 -Is it mistake free I don't know it's jazz, so it's hard to tell ;).Lovely playing J.C and that tone is great with this track. Love that fast run near the ending.

@Alan L Cole : your sweet clean sound and that easy playing chaning with faster passages - very soothing.
@G-52 : your playig style fits beautifully here. And, I think you improved your playing skills.
@ghostchord : if it was me, I would haven chosen another sound, but that´s only my 2c. For sure you found a nice catchy theme!
@NWinther : I wish your lines would have come to me! Especially that around 1:45, where you (accidentally, I assume) play a phrase from "Running up that hill" that I love.
@Mellencaster : lovely clean sound, a little tremolo now and then; calm melodic playing => pleasant to listen.
@fendrguitplayr : nice, slow mwlodic playing. Like your strings.
@bigbreak : like Mike said. A steel guitar to die for and the e-piano. Like it very much.
@telekaster1999 : like your playing, and the baritone sound in a track like this is so unusual that it enhances your good playing
@guitarsophist : and it´s a lovely conversation! Very very well carried out.
@bgmacaw : the autowah effect sounds a little like someone singing, that´s nice. Also like the organ. I thought about what if you would have played some guitar tones (I mean with the autowah) while the organ takes the lead, just in the background so that the parts are more together? Well, just my thoughts.
@ASATKat : very nice and calm, lovely octaves.
@JCL50 : the first seconds I didn´t like too much, but then you came with those beautiful clean, soft single note playing. Sound and playing are superb.
@SbS : like your calm and emotive, melodic playing, but I think the tremolo effect is sometimes a little too intensive.
@bullfrogblues : the effects in your tack let me think of a 80s movie theme.
