    This has a couple of nice changes from a standard blues backer. Have fun with it!

    I'm all over this one, as soon as the dentist yanks a molar out of my head in 1-1/2hrs.
    I whole heartedly recommend tooth extraction for BT inspirations.

    Dude, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I'm going to have to shave off some of the lows on the kick bc it's making my DAW pump, but great feel.

    Real sweet tone and riffage, Alan. You added some great plank spank and bends with great fluid in your take. Nice!

    Great work guys, but now I've got your lead lines in my head. Need a sonic cracker or slice of ginger to clear my thoughts. Where's that Hootie album?

    Tele bridge right, tele neck left. It should be tighter than it is. It sounds like the two guitarists haven't practiced together for a long time, even though they are both me.

    @Alan L Cole -- Wonderful warm blues tone. Great arpeggios. It's cohesive and entertaining.
    @fendrguitplayr -- Great stratty tone and nice octave. Kind of Dire Straights vibe. Cool!
    @bigbreak --harp sounds good. Pretty wailing!

    Nice take gs, I liked the hook that you played in several spots. Both guitar tracks blend well.

    Great use of what sounds like tap tempo delay. At times it sounded as though you were channeling Jeff Beck. Very cool.

    @fendrguitplayr - Nice tone and chord work Mike. Pretty, acoustic quality to your bluesy riffin'.
    @bigbreak - That harp is crying BB. Again, this has a cool sax feel to it. Raw and blue.
    @guitarsophist - That vamp is unique GS and sounds familar. Your track has an episodic feel to it. Cool!
    @NWinther - Nice fx, attack and dynamics Niels. A little Jeff Beck in there for me. Nice passonate playing.

    I just saw Mike's Jeff Beck reference re: Niels' track. That's cool.

    @Alan L Cole Wonderful tone....I can imagine sitting at a restaurent close to the sea down in southern Europe.....pleasent feel and playing!
    @fendrguitplayr Chris Rea and Mark Knopfler comes to mind...again that feel of southern Europe.....summer and good times!
    @bigbreak Cool harp playing....this feel like sitting on the country side, sipping cool wine and looking at a nice fire....love it!
    @guitarsophist Sweet lines...a duet that feels like a small dance with small illuminated figures....has an expressive little melody going on...cool!
    @knh555 Airy stuff.....very dreamy and reminds me of some of Dire Straits little pieces they did between their takes on records and live stuff....really nice!

    :) Well it is just my old Boss DD-3 longchip(DD-2 in reality) No tap tempo....have no delays with that feature, I like turning the time knobs more than tapping :D
    Ah thanks...well I have always loved Jeff Becks stuff....but I never sat down and copied his style on purpose....I just always liked his anarchistic style towards it all :D
