    I haven't touched a guitar for 8 days. It's good to be home. This is where we stayed.

    udoering Sweet combo of guitars and tremolo! No cheese was heard, just a lovely take.

    guitarsophist Very nice theme, it reminds me of an Irish folk song . Well done.

    @Mjark nice arpegios and peaceful playing
    @udoering I hear nothing cheesy in your take, the double stops with tremolo sound awesome and the melodic part suit the track very well.
    @guitarsophist nice melodic playing, it sounds a little like a sort of irish ballad

    A mild case of crunch,
    No jazzy cr4p.

    This is probably the only solo I've posted here that has zero bends.

    Very nice, You brought out vibe that was country the way Frisell might play it. Of everyone's contribution yours stands as the most Frisellian, minus his wacky jazz.

    That's a very nice complement,

    Well, you certainly got to the soul of that cheese.

    Actually I am a big fan of Bill Frisell, including his wacky jazz. If I had been thinking of playing like him, I probably would have chosen my Tele instead of the LP clone with humbuckers, but now that you say this, I can hear the influence, like in his album with Nashville players, and that is indeed a big compliment. Thank you, sir!

    I like the way the two guitars contrast and support each other. Very nice.
