    I named this after my cat Mika since she sang her heart out in the beginning,
    My Siamese lives in ambience, cried because she didn't like the unnatural noise
    I was making.

    This one's been around the block but it's still a beautiful backer. Fresh take, Jag meets ME-80 effects board, Slow Gear fx. Thanks Mike:

    Here's my take. SX Hawk (neck/bridge) -> Joyo EBow clone (intro only) -> Orange Kongpressor -> Monoprice 5w -> Bugera Power Soak -> Keeley Caverns -> Hotone Binary IR (York Audio Matchless 2x12 IR).

    Thanks... Feels like this should have some vocals but I'm a bad singer and didn't want to ask my daughter ;)


    Imagine a beautiful singing voice over this... (EDIT: tinkered with the mix a little bit)

    Yes, we had this track one year ago. As I can´t do better here is that old track:

    This is played on my Yamaha AEX 400N. It's a great little guitar that I haven't used enough since I bought it. The neck is somewhere between a classical guitar and Les Paul shape which works a treat for me - it's unusual to have a slight radius on a nylon strung guitar. Absolutely the best thing about it for live work though, is that out of all the electric acoustic models made over the years - it's the only one I can think of that actually has the volume control is a useful place. The EQ controls are on the top.

    Ambient Country? Thanks to Scott Vestal for the banjo.

    I knew we had done a version of this track before but I couldn't remember which week it was. Thanks for finding it. I liked my new take better than my old one.

    @ASATKat Nice. the light touch works and it's good that you kept the playing sparse leaving the delays room to work without being cluttered.
    @NWinther nicely played and a great compressed wiry Strat sound.
    @bgmacaw Interesting bell-like tone. Works well.
    @knh555 Nice warm overdrive gives it a different vibe.
    @udoering nice sounds well balanced with the backing and good use of dynamics.
    @bigbreak Different indeed - some of the melody lines 'pull' against the chord sequence but it's interesting and well played.

    @Alan L Cole Nice. those fast lines with slow attack sound great.
    @ghostchord Good sounds that work well but I felt the dominant guitar was a bit too loud and needed to come back into the mix a bit.

    Well, we did this track some days after my ex-wife and very close friend died; hence the title. So, I remembered easily.

    I've been busy with some things but I did a quick one.
