    - Last Christmas Eve. A terrible tragedy. I knew him from a few places on line for years. He was a really unique musician. Unfortunately his demons did him in.

    Yes, very tragic. I do have Wicked GTR's autographed El Dorado CD beside Sugarbeet's.

    I did try a noise gate but it was too much. What I think you're hearing is a couple fade ins and perhaps where I muted the hum where there were long rests.

    He sent me a zip file of El Dorado before it was released for my comments. I have no idea why.

    Rainy morning, was looking for new jobs....converted that MP-4 to a wav and had some fun...have not played much guitar the last month, but get back to it now and then, and this was a nice track, thanks :)

    fendrguitplayr Your wistful playing and the organic electric guitar tone sets the mood for a soulful take.

    NWinther Lovely tone, Niels! Expressive and also subtle at moments .Very sweet take.

    @fendrguitplayr nice playing, good double stops and reverb. what you play from 2:40 to the end is awesome.
    @NWinther nice sound texture and delay. high notes sound really good

    @fendrguitplayr - Nice guitar work, doublestops and melodic development Mike.
    @NWinther - Sounds great Niels! Played with passion and grit. Sweet wailin' phrasing and tone.

    @Mellencaster - very nice tone! Nice articulation.

    @knh555 - nice overtones/harmonics; smooth playing

    @Alan L Cole - nice soulful take and tone, lots of emotion!

    @JCL50 - digging the "bender" so keel! nice overdrive

    @bgmacaw - cool Mosrite - tone is a mile wide!

    @udoering - nice tremolo, very "fendery" tone. Nice duo guitars.

    @G-52 - like the solo intro idea before the "band" joins you. Nice old school approach.

    @ASATKat - love the opening chord and the delay/reverb is a cool effect, haunting sound.

    @fendrguitplayr - nice old school reverb tone.

    @NWinther - nice throaty sound, nice attitude here

    @alainvey - really dig how you really let it fly starting around 2:25 and on…

    @NWinther : lovely guitar sound, expressive and energetic playing.
    @alainvey : nice you dropped in! I already thought "surprisingly conventionally played compared to his other tracks", but then there was this unconventional note choice which is so typical for your playing.

    randomly it seems i drop in here... i did this one pretty quick so it gets kind of ragged in places - like right after it starts and then all the rest of it too...

    @montemerrick : I see, you found your electric again :)! Nice you dropped by after a longer vacation. Melodic playing that reflects the dynamics of the bt; well done!
