    Everyone is very busy with Christmas just a week away so this is an easy funky blues jam track.

    |G∆|F#79|Bm7|F#7#9|

    Have fun with it:

    Listened to the first 30 seconds, did a take and posted - so it is what it is. PRS Vela, Line6 Cruchtone Overdrive, Mooer Wahter, Garageband tweed amp.

    @Mjark - The gritty tone sounds good here and nice playing throughout. Sorry about the ending (I forgot to fade out).

    @estreet - Nice overdriven riffs and tone. Nice playing throughout and the Mooer Wahter sounds cool.

    Sounding fine, Alan. It just donned on me that your scattered flurries of quick notes remind me of Mike Bloomfield a bit. Nice!

    @MrClint - The acoustic sounds good MrClint. Some nice lines too!
    @fendrguitplayr - That's a cool tone Mike and some sweet phrasing.
    @Mjark - Oh yeah, that's some smokin' tone Mark. Bluesy and and cool riffin'.
    @estreet - Very nice playing Carl. The wah works well as does the delay. Nice!

    Agile LP bridge humbucker. Just instinctive, no thought or plan, just feeling the groove. And no guitalele!

    You were in the groove with this take. Nice playing and lines throughout.

    - Sounds like a really clean big arch top electric. Not a bad way to go.

    - The best pick up on a Strat! I hear a lot of compression too. Smooth take.

    - You heard enough. Nicely phrased.

    - Lovey bends and fat tone.

    - Sounds great I haven't played my LP in while. I may have to get it down from it's perch.

    Nice track indeed! For once we have a clear blue sky here, and it is my youngest brother in law birthday....got this one down after I got home from work today...
    The light is great when the sun sets in this weather, a few more moments of light before it turns dark...love it..
    Used my old Peavey amp for this one, and a slightly modded Boss OD-2r for the driven part.

    @guitarsophist - Nice articulated phrasing GS and clean tone.
    @NWinther - Sweet bluesy tone and riffin' Niels. Dig the delay.

    @MrClint - The acoustic is a nice change of pace and creates a nice reflective mood.
    @fendrguitplayr - I like the chords on the chorus. And the notes in the single-string stuff sustain in a most musical way.
    @Mjark - Intense! I could tell it was going to be from the buzz at the beginning. Nice tone and lots of variation in the riffs.
    @estreet - That's a good sounding effects chain. And into a Garageband amp sim. Interesting.
    @Alan L Cole - Subtle touch. Nice variation of sustained notes and fast passages. The first note reminded me of some Cream song, maybe "Outside Woman Blues"? But then it gets jazzier.
    @NWinther - Your phrasing is always interesting. And those soaring sustained notes are delightful!

    Nice bends and hammers, sweet tone and phrasing. 3:35" riff was cool!

    Nice arpeggios and octaves. The track has a nostalgic, wistful feel.

    Good choice of using an acoustic. Really nice soft tone, Nice lines too.
    I finally replaced my stolen guitar just 5 days ago. I also had the acoustic idea, but I need to get my strength and ease back before I record.
