    Well, this is my first jam post, based on Fresh form K&G. It is a bit repetitive and maybe too long (feel free to cut it), but still learning how to do workable backing tracks, hope you can have fun with it.

    I saw them once . They opened for Santana in Philly . 1/3 of the audience left after their act which made it easy to move to other seats .

    Cool straty tone and funny added voices. Dig those wahs towards the end.

    Thanks...that was one fun track!! Keep them coming :)
    Another stubborn take....my hands really hate this winter.
    This was the third practise take, liked the energy of it and kept it.

    (valley girl OMG), where are my disco shoes? In 85 I was deep into jazz school, still this song somehow got into my memory. And back then I'm guilty of using it to shag, but that's all,

    Still a lot of fun to arrange and jam on, I hung around the melody pretty much, thank you Miguel.

    I had to fix a mistake by recording the soft guitar at the end, not the best fix,

    Wow, that has a kinda psychedelic rock feel. Nice lines floating above the track.

    You walked the same way as me going along with the melody. Fine crunch tone and chops

    I've been watching and listening to these backing track threads for a while (hoping that one day I might finally get set up to record something and contribute) and I have to say the usual suspects contribute in most if not all these threads. The other thing is that you guys are genuinely talented guitarists and your recording prowess leaves me a little in awe. Props to all you guys you all sound great!
