    I like the way you play along with the repeats from the delay so that the new notes and the old notes interweave. It is a nice way to use delay. The first time I heard this was on "Red House" by Jimi Hendrix.

    @G-52 - Nice intro! It really gets cooking as you progress. Great country riffin.
    @ASATKat - Sweet tone .Dreamy and melodic.

    Nice, playing and tone. But the noise gate was kinda being a bit pushy. You're too good to be pushed around by a gizmo who's only purpose is to shut you up.

    @Mellencaster - beautiful country sound, and I liked the twangy bends
    @knh555 - nicely thought out; enjoyable listening, nice intro too
    @Alan L Cole - I’m enjoying those clean tones, lovely vibrato and riffs
    @JCL50 - beautiful track; I felt the emotion
    @bgmacaw - I liked the melody you chose, and the half step slides
    @Mjark - southern Utah perhaps... a singing quality to your take, peaceful, like you’ve been on vacation:)
    @udoering - nice acoustics intro, guitars were working great together; theatrical sound like an orchestra
    @guitarsophist - dreamy, with rich tones; I like the story you told
    @ASATKat - very creative, and beautiful really; interesting affects; nice

    @Mellencaster : lovely clean country-style guitar, laidback melodic playing. Your one-shot sounds well thought-out.
    @knh555 : oh man, that feedback - great! You found a nice melody. Good work on the quiet and louder pasages. The second guitar supports your playing well.
    @Alan L Cole : though you do not play with much overdrive, your guitar tends to fall into the overtones; sounds awesome. Good playing throughout and reacting on the different parts of the track.
    @JCL50 : I had to listen carefully for the second guitar, which means that you play and mix it in a way that blends perfectly with the bt and in no way messes with your delicate lead playing in a country-rock style.
    @fendrguitplayr : happy birthday to you!
    @bgmacaw : nice melodic playing, going well with the different parts of the tune. BTW, I also had to convert the bt, though I use the newest version of Cubase.

    @Mjark : beautiful guitar sound; lovely laidback and melodic playing. Is it possible that you used a gate that sometimes took away short pieces of guitar?
    @guitarsophist : your track sounds very much like the guitar playing the vocal part, which also means that you composed that thing. Nice!
    @G-52 : by starting a few seconds before the track comes in it sounds as if you were starting a session; nice country-pickin`track!
    @ASATKat : nice use of delay is the first thing that drew my attention. Nice melodic playing and very skilled interplay with the delay.

    @G-52 cool intro, good phrases, I like the bouncy and happy feeling on the "chorus" parts.
    @ASATKat nice use of the delay and playing with it
    @f69tele nice volume swells and western sountrack vibe. job done.

    f69tele - Just Like the other track, the baritone notes and also the swells are very good on this track . Someone had mentioned James Wilsey earlier, it was the first thought when listening to your track. Well played.

    @G-52 - Cool intro and nice country riffin' that builds need celt as the track progressed.
    @ASATKat - Very pretty playing. Nice!
    @f69tele - Nice range of tones and phrasing here. Very nice melodic theme and sweet harmonized parts.

    Monday, a little late, a little rushed, but it is what it is.

    @Mellencaster - Sweet tone and lovely intro, Mike, followed by a sweet country and melodic take!
    @knh555 - Nice sounding sustain and mid range tone, Kevin. Thanks for the track!
    @Alan L Cole - Nice fluttery runs and trills, Alan and you got very good dynamics too.
    @JCL50 - The mix and playing are sounding nice with both guitars, JC.
    @bgmacaw - Nice riffs and playing throughout with nice slides.
    @Mjark - I liked your pace on this and 8 days without playing didn't change anything in your fine track, Mark.
    @udoering - Really liked your intro and then the guitars sounded sweet all the way through, Ullrich.
    @guitarsophist - Nice twang and playing with some creative ideas throughout.
    @G-52 - Lots of creative ideas here as well with nice playing and kind of funky country vibe, Andrew.
    @ASATKat - Soulful intro that moves along well with nice riffage as the track goes along.
    @f69tele - Nice volume swells and really fine twangy tones after the intro and throughout.

    @f69tele : how did you do the opening? Volume pot, pedal? Anyhow, sounds great. What´s coming then sounds very good also; classic cowboy guitars, composed and arranged like a soundtrack. Very nice!
    @fendrguitplayr : nice clean sound with noticeable compression, doublestops and bendings - what could one want more?

    I track with POD 2.0. For the volume swells there is a Delay/Swell setting that makes it really easy! Thank you for the comments!!

    Thank you. Never heard of Wilsey before. Had to look him up.

    Wilsey played on Chris Isaaks' "Wicked Games." His solo album is called "El Dorado" I think. It sounds like spaghetti western music for space aliens. I unblocked the trem on my strat after listening to Wilsey. Unfortunately, I believe he passed away a couple of years ago.

    I believe he was a member here and some of the members on this thread conversed with him. I did not have the honor as that was before my time here, I believe.
