    Here's a short 2 minute 8 bar blues jam I put together. People had requested an 8 bar blues track so here it is. It's kind of an R&B blues.

    Here's my quick lunchtime shot at it. Gear is Mosrite JR kit (neck mini-HB), Hotone Mojo Diamond, Hotone Binary Ir (Tweed Deluxe IR). Reverb in Audacity.

    Thanks for the track bg, it's a great progression, reminds me of Clapton-esque 60s,

    Good riffage on your take with nice phrasing.

    Yes, you went for a 60's Bluesbreaker-ish vibe. Nice take.

    Here's mine. It's my Casino. By now you can tell that I tend to try to turn most of these tracks into songs with melodies. I can't help it!

    @fendrguitplayr - Interesting tone with lots of room ambience. I like that last unexpected note!
    @bgmacaw - Very mellow tone, and nice melodic lines. Nice wobble at the end. Thanks for the backing track!
    @ASATKat - Cool flutey but raspy tone! Fits nicely with the track.
    @Mjark - That has a country blues flavor. The rhythm guitar adds a lot.

    More Country than Blues, I think, but here's a take...
    Tele Bridge Pickup

    @fendrguitplayr - nice strong intro. Great playing all the way thru. Nice stinger on the end!

    @bgmacaw - nice laid back bluesy tone. Nice playing and simple style compliments the track nicely.

    @ASATKat - great attitude in that tone and playing. Really like the riffage starting at 1:14. Nice resolve at the end.

    @guitarsophist - nice applied melody. Really dig the bluesy licks starting around :58

    @Mjark - like the driving rhythm guitar you added. Great lickage all the way thru.

    @pj1440 - nice approach on the intro and your choice of octave/register; great playing.





    Great takes from everyone here, and tasty tones to boot!

    @pj1440 - A nice, snappy, take

    Nice countrified take. When I originally picked the VST's to use I had an acoustic piano and it sounded a lot more country. I switched it to a C3 plus a Rhodes VST to try to move it more toward R&B but I guess it wasn't enough.

    Interesting double guitar parts

    @fendrguitplayr - Nice Country blues vibe Mike with nice phrasing, verb and tone.
    @bgmacaw - Some pretty Country lines here BG.
    @ASATKat - Building a melodic theme with some classic blues phrasing Kat.
    @guitarsophist - Yep, nice melodic playing. Nothing wrong with that GS!
    @Mjark - Cool backing guitar work and tone Mark. Solo guitar sounds great with nice melodic phrasing.
    @pj1440 - Nice production and tone on the Tele Peter. Sweet Country phrasing.
    @f69tele - Great technique and playing f69, as always. Definitely Country and very cool.
