    @Mjark : nice sound, expressive playing that sounds quite bluesy to me.
    @fendrguitplayr : definitely more than just a few blues moments - nice!
    @Alan L Cole : there it is again, your typical playing style which always had a Hendrix vibe to me. Love it.
    @ASATKat : interesting note choice, sounds mostly great. Well done!
    @bgmacaw : you have got some really nice lines there! Your sound and playing have a vocal quality.
    @guitarsophist : good playing, like especially those vibrated double stops, sound lovely. The organ track just makes it a little fuller without standing out.
    @G-52 : a lot of nice double stops and bendings - country blues!

    @Mellencaster : fat sound indeed; fat tremolo also! I like how you stay in the deeper registers!
    @knh555 : lovely expressive playing, recorded guitarsound good! The second guitar with it´s sound takes the track into another territory.
    @JCL50 : beautiful sound, nice blues playing throughout.
    @ASATKat: second track sounds quite different, less jazzy, more bluesy; some lovely licks!

    Very nicely played clean country blues with good bends. Do you also play pedal steel?

    Very fine playing with a lot of good blues lines and clusters of speedy riffs. The wah near the end was cool too.

    Been working on one of my bathrooms and had to take a break.

    @Mjark - Sweet tone and blues playing Mark!
    @fendrguitplayr - Nice classic blues vibe with some cool melodic lines Mike.
    @ASATKat - Nice lazy day blues and cool tone.
    @bgmacaw - Raw tone with a live vibe. Cool.
    @guitarsophist - Sweet tone and phrasing. Bluesy.
    @Mellencaster - Sweet laid-back country tinged phrasing Mike, enhanced by the tremolo. Nice!
    @knh555 - The new guitar sounds good. Nice bluesy vibe in your melodic style and tone, and now, feedback.
    @JCL50 - Dig that ratty tone and your phrasing. Some cool classic blues riffs here.
    @ASATKat - (Fort) Sweet tone and blues phrasing.
    @G-52 - Country fused blues with some nice double stops. Nice clean tone too.
    @udoering - Sweet blue's lines, volume swells - dig the delay and dynamics and Jimi's wah.

    No pedal steel player here; it would fun to explore (... and I enjoy sitting down, lol.) I enjoyed this backing track, there was a lot of room for expression (and/or experimentation:)); thanks for your comments and for posting the BTs.

    Late to the table and I haven't done this sort of thing in a verrrrry long time (but did hundreds of these things at the LPF and elsewhere back in the day... Hiya Mike and Mark!).
    My old recording rig expired due to a 'puter upgrade a few years back so I've cobbled together an old PODxt into Garageband and messed around with some sort of big tweed model. First take from a CS-356, with an added rhythm layer ghosted back there later. A couple of clams. Will listen to everybody in a bit...

    Hi @clayville - Recording rig works great. Love the panning on the backing guitar. Really nice tone and blues riffing.

    Hi Clay! Really nice bluesy lines and tone and I agree with Alan on the panned backing guitar. Sweet! I've
    been trying to get JParnaby to get back into recording/jamming too. Give him a nudge. ;)

    - A very lively recording.

    - Solid Blues! Guitar sounds great.

    Nice big bends.

    Hey! Welcome. Here we are again! Sounding as deft as ever.

    - Nice double stops.

    - I like how you open it up as you go. Swells are lovely.

    @clayville : first of all, welcome! That´s a very nice blues take with a lively guitar sound. I also dig the autopan effect; I have to, I used it myself, although in a less drastical way.

    A pleasant listen with some good riffage and tone throughout.

    Pretty nice playing and tone.

    Imo you are no more than a few micro tonally flattened notes away from a fuller or authentic blues vibe. The pitch tease between the b3rd and major 3rd for example.

    Interestingly the bends that went upwards would find themselves at the pitch tease area, tge goal in the bend being to find that spot where it truly sings.

    So I can't agree wirh you not being a blues player. You have the most important thing, soul,,,
