    Very cool. What did you use for the organ sounds (EHX?) - a terrific take and great pickin' and plank spankin' on the main guitar!

    G-52 It's a sweet upbeat phrasing and both guitars sound good in the mix. Nice!

    f69tele Great production on this one, f69. The time signature sure didn't hold you back, it sounds awesome.

    @fendrguitplayr - very creative; the melody and use of space made for an interesting journey
    @knh555 - rhythm track was really nice; ZzTop comes to mind; raw, heavy on the testosterone; well played
    @guitarsophist - nice; pleasing jazzy melody, rhythm well placed on the upbeats
    @ndcaster - soothing and well played; futuristic funk
    @Alan L Cole - that was some kind of wild extravaganza, like a movie track; nice creative transition @3:00 min. and the bass line was cool; take a bow please:)
    @Mellencaster - tone and playing were beautiful; very tasteful and efficient lead lines
    @Mjark - nice melodic take, full of interesting patterns
    @f69tele - the 69 is sounding great; aMazing riffage, crazy good

    Whoa, I'm having a flashback.
    SF 68, in a reconverted warehouse full of body painting hippies,,,,,, and you were there playing that music, I remember.

    Yea man, I hear the boogie.
    And then it morphs into a boogie shuffle with swinging 8ths. That's creative.

    Nice following the changes when they happen. Sounds like Grant Green playing with distortion. Cool.

    @G-52 - Kind of a chill chicken pickin' funk fry Andrew. I think you got some funk in the Tele's trunk.
    @f69tele - Nice range of techniques f69. A unique vibe and track, as exhibited by that keyboard intro, and very cool.

    Very bluesy take with that b3 to 3 and other goodies. A bit short after you get me all pumped up, leave it on a tease.

    Cool effect, what is it? Very vocal. And the "all falling down in a cascade" effect is also totally cool. Awesome!

    I dig it, blues jam like, your butterfly vibrato is strong and fast. Good job.

    Bad time? I heard good times, the subtle comping chords sound great.

    Converting it to a 4/4 feel makes the drums sound interesting. Funky chicken feel. Really, country with a funky drummer which makes you a funky bad arse.

    Hi Kat. I added a complimentary drum track, and a second bass track played on my Ultra Nova synth. The main riffin' / fx is just another patch on my synth. No guitar until the 3:40ish mark. Thanks for checking it out.

    Thanks! Hmm, I don't know what EHX is. ?? Organ sound is (2) effects stacked - a fast, deep stereo chorus, and a tremolo.

    Thank you!


    Many Thanks!

    Thank you Alan! And... no keyboard - it's a chorus and a tremolo stacked on the guitar to sound like an organ!

    Thank you!!

    Had time enough to do a one shot this morning after a playthrough. Had no plan for this, I looked at it like an improvisation live at stage. Mistakes are recorded as well as the not perfectly tuned guitar.

    @fendrguitplayr : a very unusual mixture of elements. Seems like the track forces us to intensive playing. Love the octaves.
    @knh555 : boogie! Quite another way to deal with it. The track has a "classic" (i.e., Woodstock) vibe. Nice interplay in the last third, when the rythm guitar stops to play plain rythm.
    @guitarsophist : your track immediately let me think of "Take Five", although it´s another time signature. Regarding the melody playing, it seems we went similar ways.
    @ndcaster : yes, funky indeed!
    @Alan L Cole : a complete transformation, first into the future, then back to recent past. Very creative job!
    @Mellencaster : you let yourself float on the waves of rythm, delay and reverb, didn´t you? And why not!? Only criticism woud be that the rythm of the tremolo guitar doesn´t fit too well.
    @Mjark : nice take with the rythm guitar, good lines.
    @G-52 : as said above, the track brings us to intensive playing, reacting to the drums & bass!
    @f69tele : another skilled and creative transformation of the track. Adding the forth step was genius. Very good playing.
    @NWinther : you let the track take you on a trip; sounds completely improvised, born in the second of playing it.

    NWinther Sounds and feels like jazz fusion and you've made the best of it. Nice!

    udoering I think it has come and gone recently but anyways Happy Birthday, Ullrich! Very fine jazz like playing and the phrasing all work nicely.
