    I had some angst that I had to get out of my system.

    Great sounding tone, lines and phrasing all the way through it.

    This backer was done over at ST a while ago so I decided to do something different with it this time:



    Thanks Mike.

    This is amazing, it took me totally by surprise, the creativity is over the top.
    I dig the hell out of it. A game stuff.

    This is an F7 or F7#9 type of backing track. The idea is to play F minor pent and F major pent as homebase.

    The Coltrane idea uses F major, A major and C# major pents to navigate mild and heavy "out". C# major pent is mild out and A major pent is out out. But this "out" connects back into the F blues homebase like butter.

    This is not a solo, this is definately me exploring the strange. And my first time posting me "roughly" playing with it.

    I have a cold I can't hear that well and I just downloaded the latest Cakewalk and used a weird inverse reverb.

    Loved that outro Carl. Just a great track with very cool guitar work.

    Nasty intro with that big-n-bad gutsy tone. Cool rock-funk fused romp @ASATKat.

    At least your dog didn't eat your homework Mark ;). A very cool and trippy take on the backer. Actually, it's interesting to hear how everyone so far diverged from a traditional funk track. Funktastic!

    Yes, F Mixolydian works too. I like the free form guitar vibe you have here.

    Some very nice creative ingredients, lines and tones. What is ST?

    Nice riffs and playing throughout. That effect sounds cool here.

    One shot from me. I played with the tone quite a lot after the event, but once I had a sound that separated me from the rhythm guitar, I stuck with it all the way through.



    I look forward to listening to your takes. Thanks @fendrguitplayr :)

    Very cool intro and the multi guitars worked well together.
