    This is a minimal slow blues backer. Have fun with it.

    Just got back from seeing Downton Abbey. It's not very Bluesy!

    Nice tones from your guitar and great lines make it sound bluesy to me. Nice!

    Lots of moments! I meant Downton Abbey isn't Bluesy. :)

    Nice riffs from the get-go, Alan. Some parts nail the tone of Bloomfield. Nice!

    I got this in before the unprecidented planned PG&E power outage takes my power. I don't know, it's beautiful outside, no wind, no fire.

    Slippery Wind Blues, (chromatic blues)

    Here's my quick take after working until almost 9 tonight. I decided to try out a different IR on the Hotone Binary IR Cab, the Supro 1624T. Otherwise, as usual, Mosrite JR kit neck HB, Hotone Mojo Diamond (gain at about 90%) and some reverb added via Audacity.

    I like how you paced yourself and sweet lines like after hours blues jams at 3am. Cool!

    Laid back and from the heartful playing of the soul. Nice take!

    Thanks. The backing track was really great. I put the organ on because I wanted it to make it sound like an Albert King cut. It's just roots and fifths, dialed way back. It's a B3 patch in a free synth plug called Xhip. I tracked it in Reaper.

    I agree, but to me it sounds more like Stevie Ray.

    This sounds so relaxed and melancholy! I really enjoyed it.

    What an amazing tone that is! I get that you are using a Supro cabinet IR, but what amp sim are you going through?

    Hotone Mojo Diamond, which is 'inspired' by a tweed Deluxe. I send the effects out into the cabinet IR since that works the best. The Mojo Diamond by itself is pretty good but adding the Binary IR Cab took it to a new level.
