    Nice tone and creative lines especially liked the octaves.

    This is me and my Agile playing the same little riff over and over. It is definitely more ambient than funk.

    @Mjark - Great intro, great tone, and great use of delay. And octaves too! You were clearly having fun!
    @fendrguitplayr - That slow, savory playing is just what this track calls for.
    @Alan L Cole - The two guitars work nicely together. The stuttery one sounds like some kind of satellite communications. It generates a lot of interesting textures.

    It doesn't sound repetitive to me. Nice groove.

    Doesn't sound repetitive to me either and ambient or alternative funk is good too.

    What I meant was that I stayed pretty much in the same position at the eighth fret and played rhythmic figures more than lines. It is variations on the same theme over and over, with a few diversions. But I guess I made enough alterations to make it a little bit interesting. I tend to be kind of a minimalist these days. Thanks for the kind words!

    There's no melody without rhythm! I played one note for quite some time.

    Neil Young can make a whole solo on one note. It is usually a pretty good note played loud with grimacing and dancing and a lot rhythmic intensity.

    @Mjark - Your title should have read Dr. Drizzle of Funk. Sweet octaves and phrasing, Mark.Very nice!
    @fendrguitplayr - Cool and chill! Strutting your stuff with that Strat it sounds good, Mike!
    @Alan L Cole - I think this would represent every cool tv theme from the 70s. Smokin take Alan!
    @guitarsophist - Perfect tone for funk and far from repetitive and sounded good to me, your playing was engaging and to the point.
