    Thanks Alan but with no inducements of anything. I tried a rhythm track then went for an edgy sound for a change.



    @Alan L Cole - Your 'Island Sands' was a treat to listen to. Very nicely played and love that outro. Very cool!!!

    @Thoughtfree - I liked your fluid lines and the 0.56" part then more nice picking, riffs and tone.


    @telekaster1999 - Good woody tone and sweet lines/riffs/licks throughout, 1:25 you dug in. Nice!

    Interesting that you picked that time, exactly when I switched from the Sparkle Drive to Wampler Belle

    @ASATKat - Are you coughing at .031/32? Other than that a nice listen to your soundscape here. Played well.

    @guitarsophist - The Strat neck pup sounds really nice here. I liked your pieces of melodies scattered about on your take. Very cool.

    @fendrguitplayr Really nicely composed and mixed. It had a Pink Floyd meets the Wailers thing going that was super cool.

    @Alan L Cole Nice spacey vibes, and some killer runs. I like the little hook you created.

    @Thoughtfree Really enjoyed it, nice tone and some slick lead lines, i especially like the little Djangoesque flurries.

    @telekaster1999 I like the quiet-loud-quiet dynamic, really killer overdriven tone that highlights the bluesy lead.

    @ASATKat That was a surreal jam. The ambient noise in the background and the acid drenched guitars took me back to reaggae themed coffeeshop in Amsterdam that I used to spend a lot of time in when I was there.

    This take is more straight up backing track/guitar. Pumped up some blues tone for a strong voice. I tried to insert in some humor in my playing, so you might get an urge to laugh at my playing, once again lol.


    I liked how my guitar sounded in the low register, country ready with a strong urge for a blues tone, classic Leo magic.

    Very lyrical, was that you on the pedal or was that a touch wah? The wah sound made me salivate, like I was feeding a baby, sympathetic salivation.
    Gotta go, I feel the need for some breast feeding now, and maybe a change.
    Nice job.

    very nice melodic chords in the 2nd guitar. beautiful reverb, fitting for your playing, I thought I heard a Jimi reference, that makes it so cool, ok, more Jimi...
    Nice job
