    This is a blues backer with a cool groove to it. Just under three minutes long. Have fun with it.

    Steely Dan-ish . Maybe this will lure my friend Dave over here, he's been all over the world with people like George Duke, Flora Purim, Cirque de Sole (sic).

    Put this together, I think that I have to fix a few cables soon, not that you can hear it here, but they where making quite some buzz before I found a good twist for it....gotta fire up the soldering iron, thanks for the nice track, took it easy on this, my hand is still acting up. Probally gonna give in and see a doctor about it, but I am sick of doctors, have seen quite a few to many of those the last couple of years.

    A quick take using my Danelectro Baritone -> Biyang Fuzz Star -> Monoprice 5w -> Bugera PowerSoak -> Keeley Caverns -> Hotone Binary IR Cab (EVM 12L 4x12 IR).

    Thanks for the nice bt. I think I could have done better but I was hybrid picking and my fingers got too sore,

    Clean mode reverb, delay and lots of chords,

    Thanks for the track @fendrguitplayr

    I went with fingerpicking with this one to have an excuse for the sloppiness! :D

    Nice lines and tone throughout!


    Great playing and that '66 Tele sounds great too. I had a '66 Tele and the neck felt amazing, wish I still had it.



    @middy - Nice tone and phrasing throughout!


    What you did sounds cool no matter what you used.


    Quite nice with a biting gritty tone.


    @Mjark - Very cool take and the sustain sounds great as does the runs and bends.

    @Alan L Cole - Hot pickin' right out of the gate with great lines and phrasing.

    @NWinther - Best wishes on your hand and nice take with some creative lines throughout.

    @SbS - Cool jam with both guitar tracks answering back and forth with cool riffs.

    Thanks! I've had it for about 42 years and it's well relic'd. Had no paint on it when I bought it and I've painted it several times most of which is wearing through now. I had the neck thinned down and big frets put in it about 25 years ago. It has SD Vintage Stack pickups in it. All in all it's not what you'd call very original but it plays really well and I would never sell it. I'm playing it here in Rikki & The Cufflinks about 40 years ago. It's black (mostly) now.

    Thanks for the cool blues,

    More gain, no cowbell,

    Forgive me guys, I'm just exploring all these things I can do, amp wize and direct recording.

    My amp has zero gain on, I'm on my lead mode, normally a screaming lead channel, but turn the gain to zero and get a sweet new clean-ish tone. Volume is still there mostly.

    My wife kept interrupting my recordings:


    Sort of reminded me of some 80's TV theme music, hence the name.
