    @Mellencaster - The intro attracts interest from the git go. Nice melodic playing and cool tone.

    The track lead me into a kind of ambient stuff; it was a little bit like the discovery of slowness. Hope you enjoy.

    @Mjark : nice one! 1:15 ff is great!
    @fendrguitplayr : yeah! Like some early seventies blues rock!
    @Alan L Cole : for a reason I don´t know the Savoy Brown Blues Band" came to my mind. So far you are the funkiest player :).
    @guitarsophist : you picked a nice title according to your description, which I could have written also. Lovely clean tone.
    @Mellencaster : +1 on guitarsophists comment!

    Dig the James Bond guitar track and those lush chords Ullrich. Great sounding track and playing!

    udoering Instrumental qualities all through and I hear least two or maybe 3 guitar tracks, a nicely blended mix of lovely tones and playing.

    NWinther In parts you are uniquely mixing modes that actually...well... work, lol. Nice arrangement and playing, sounds like you have a slide but I'm not sure of it by your playing style but either way, it sounds good and the only thing I would say in a constructive observation is that your track is highly clipping.

    Knuf of that Funk! Seriously, wild and creative Niels. Would make a great soundtrack for the right film. Awesome!

    @Mjark that is one sweet tone....love the feel from this one, good relaxed lines.
    @fendrguitplayr fat cool tone, really nice progression of notes. Like the dynamics.
    @Alan L Cole Feels like being in a hidden away nightclub....really sweet playing!
    @guitarsophist nice intimate feel from this one! Like the themes, sweet tone on top as well!
    @Mellencaster Slick stuff, elastic playing...like the ghosty delay, dig the mood of this one.
    @udoering dreamy take, had a Chris Rea like feel to it...almost heard that voice of his...lovely dual guitar themes!

    Sounds like a "live" jam. Edgy and in your face, so to speak, cool.

    @NWinther : if this was your mood, it must have been a lousy night before! Seriously, your track reminded of some King Crimson stuff in it´s tonality and aggressiveness. The dirt on the bt creates interesting sounds and effects. All in all, a great track.

    Really nice. I'm not usually a fan of multiple guitar tracks as they often compete more than work together but they do here.

    - Mysterious in Jeff Beck sort of way.

    Here's my quick take on it. Gear is Mosrite JR kit (bridge SD QuarterPound), Rowin Flanger (Mooer E-Lady copy), Hotone Binary Amp (Matchless Chieftain), Hotone Binary IR Cab (Matchless Chieftain 2x12 IR), Audacity reverb.

    I liked the lower notes better than the higher treble notes, but cool.

    @udoering - Soundtrack to a science fiction movie. People are sinking into the sand and the Martians are taking them to their leader. I like the interplay between the two guitars.
    @NWinther - Thor woke up in a bad mood because Loki gave his hammer to a dwarf and Odin had to intervene. He's angry!
    @bgmacaw - Very constrained tone. The lack of sustain makes it feel tight and angry. It expresses that feeling.

    @bgmacaw : I have to second fendrguitplayr; the low notes sound sound better, maybe less constrained, like guitarsophist named it. 2:19ff is cool!

    Here's my go at it. I got in a Mark Knopfler-esque mood for this one. Also added a synth over the break...

    Equipment: Parts-Strat with EMG DG pickup set; SuperChamp amp set clean; MXR Carbon Copy. Used a Phase 90 on max speed for that Scofield-esque vibrato over the chords...

    Miked with Sennheiser active mike. Into FocusRite then REAPER.

    Synth: Novation Peak.
