    @Hatfield92 : love your raunchy guitar sound and your slowed-down approach.

    @udoering: I’ve only heard two examples of your playing, but you’ve clearly got your own distinct sound and style. My favorite part was the 30 seconds or so of dual guitar.

    @ASATKat - That opening chord was sweet! A cool jazzy trip. Nice double stops and tone Kat
    @Hatfield92 - Nice tone H92. You left plenty of space for the backer to breath and your notes sing.
    @udoering - Delicately played lines Ullrich. The two guitar parts work well together. Nice tone too!

    Nice playing especially around the 2:50" and on.

    Soulful and bluesy with nice use of space and dynamics.

    - great lines on this one. The distant guitar adds depth.

    Nice tone and blues riffage and I especially like about 2:26" with the 2nd guitar. Sounds cool.

    Thanks for the listen and for the kind feedback! Much appreciated. The backing track never hit me as being melancholic at all. I sensed a bouncy lilt from the outset. I heard, "Boom-Boom-Bah--Chick-a-Chick-a-Boom-Boom" on first listen.

    This may have been your best track to date and that's saying something. The first 47 seconds were sublime. Very good blues tone, great bends, really nice sustain with the right amount of gaps in the phrases to ward off ear fatigue (certainly in the beginning). Towards the middle your scale jaunts are very unexpected and pleasant. Really awesome runs that convey a mastery of the instrument.

    Thanks for listening and taking the time to offer a nice comment.

    Really nice and unique tone from your LP. Really well played phrases as well. It didn't sound like you traveled the fretboard too much -- kind of stayed home and worked within a well played theme of notes.

    Thanks for the positive feedback! Much appreciated.

    I can't say enough good things about the Epiphone acoustics with the two pickups. These pickups can be found in the Masterbuilt series and a few other models as well (I have the EJ200SCE). These are also good value guitars.

    @Hatfield92 - Sometimes slow and tasty is the best approach. It works well here. Very expressive.
    @udoering - You always have interesting changes in tones and styles throughout the track. Never know what's coming next!

    Nice phrasing, very subdued...your guitar needs to come up in the mix just a hair. Mine did too this time, in retrospect. Nice job though.

    Has anyone here ever listened to Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite? It came in handy from time to time in college. Great... uh... coupling music. This track has that vibe in a big way. I really enjoyed it. Kudos, @fendrguitplayr!!!

    Really like the sound of the notes you sustain. And your dexterity is definitely something that’s unattainable for me. Nice feel throughout.

    Thanks for the positive comment!

    I like what you did with your track. There was some exploration and experimentation going on. I really appreciate clear note playing with some starts, stops and gaps as opposed to lengthy meandering runs, which tend to cause ear fatigue. Your tone textures were nice as well. Good job!

    Got to play with a new toy on this one, a Strymon Deco simulating two tape decks, 50's style. Main guitar on the Gretsch Penguin, backup on the Yamaha Revstar P90s. The Deco is very cool btw.
