    I needed to give my cigar box style guitars some exercise so I used my "Moon Pie" 3 string guitar on track #2 (tuned A-E-A)

    Well that's the nicest thing anyone has said to me...I think? You made me laugh.

    Your track was both beautiful and bad ass at the same time Ken. Awesome!

    Now for something a little less wacky, I hope, my take on #1:

    This is the funky 3rd one. It's basically a two chord vamp, but I found it challenging to keep up with the intensity. Starcaster neck.

    Yeah, I did many takes before I just decided to try a more atmospheric part like the keyboards. Can’t compete with that slap bass…

    @fendrguitplayr - Blues with a feeling! Nice glassy but stinging tone. Albert King approved.
    @ASATKat - Lovely soulful tone. Bullies are usually deeply unhappy people. You have expressed the torment of the unhappy soul.
    @Alan L Cole - Lots of blues plus scales here. Lovely clean SRV-style strat tones. Looks like we are landing on the moon.
    @bgmacaw - The slide guitar floats in the air over the beautiful landscape of the track!
    @bigbreak - Yep, you steeled! I don't think that the Israelites had pedal steels though, so I doubt that the commandment is applicable, unless you acquired that instrument at Madman Lefty's Pawn and Guitar under dubious circumstances.
    @middy - Lovely sort of British blues tone. Lots of beautiful space between lovely phrases. #3 is wisely played. You let the slap bass do its thing.
    @klasaine - Wow, did you find that pedal in a beam of blue light beneath an Unexplained Arial Phenomenon?
    @NWinther -The first one has a sort of violin cat tone. Meow! Some kind of envelop tweaker? It's plaintive too. Somebody better feed that cat! It's got the blues! On the second one you wisely let your leads float over that bubbling slap bass. It's a tough track.
    @Mjark - The first one is soaring and lovely. Peaceful, mindful, and calm. Far out! Nice Ibanez on the second one. Not your normal recording process I think.
    @SbS - Authentic blues tone. This one is so slow that every note get attention, so you have to play real clean, and you played clean and with feeling.
    @miguelalmeida - Slow and with lots of space. Mournful tone. Nice feeling. Those Gretsch p-90s have great tone.

    Nice playing following the groove and changes, kind of sounds like my amp. Bringing out the sweaty dance groove.

    Such a beautiful tone with no frets. Mello as a Moon Pie

    So melodic, I got lost in the swirls, then the boss shows up. You do that sort of thing exceptionally well.

    This is nice, the falling leaves describe this very well.
    Lyrical, I like the flip to blues towards the end, then back into falling leaves.
