    A short one in the style of Otis Rush. Let it rip!

    That was a nice one; short enough to do it before going to work:

    Nice the way you built it up from the start. The second guitar track complimented nicely. At about 1:58 nice dynamics and tone.

    Coming through loud and clear. Nice tone and riffs and seems you were ready to keep going at end. Nice one!

    Still working? I like the way the spare tremolo guitar sounds and the nice licks.

    _ Cool use of 3rds here.

    Maybe it was a critique!

    I played my modified Welch Tele with the Bill and Becky Lawrence Micro Coil pups. I love playing the blues. Here in FL we were just today issued a stay at home order by the Governor. That means no golf for me. Just stay at home, do projects outside and in as well as play music. I hope you like listening to my entry into this week's mid week blues.

    Very cool riffs and tone. I think there are only maybe 15 states without a "stay at home order" except for
    essential jobs. My wife's job is considered essential. Can't have too many Patriot missiles I guess. Again, sounds great!

    Just finished trying to fix the headpiece on my headless kit guitar, again and hopefully for the last time, so I used it. Artec Crusader bridge pickup, Hotone Binary Amp (Tweed Deluxe model), Hotone Binary IR Cab (EVM 12L 4x12 IR + room IR), Mosky Spring Reverb.

    Kind of has a middle eastern vibe in your tone. Graphic looks good too!

    Bluesy lines with a touch of reverb sounds great!

    Agile LP neck pickup. I got to use my one Otis Rush lick!

    Thanks. That’s what I made for dinner for me and the kids tonight. A nice Chinese-style chicken, broccoli, and egg over rice.

    I played both parts on my Gretsch Penguin with TV Jones classics.

    @fendrguitplayr : sweet clean sound, classic blues licks. Also dig the double stops towards the end. Nice take!
    @Mjark : your sounds has a sweet edge on it. Nice licks throughout with some especially good ones, and I like how yo integrate the arpeggios.
    @Swingbass : you have a very specific way of playing; lots of chords / arpeggios and jazzy elements like octaves. Yes, it sounds quite jazzy in the end.
    @knh555 : while I know that broccoli is a very healthy vegetable, I just don´t like it at all. Which is quite different with this broccoli!
    @bgmacaw : like your thrifty playing here; it gives more meaning to the oarticular notes played. Nice sound also.
    @guitarsophist : sounds like a classic blues track from the early seventies; but then there are some lines that fall out of the scheme.

    Blues you can use and played nicely with good tone!

    I heard that one lick (All Your Love) - I loved the John Mayall "Beano" version of that song.
