    Thanks Alan!

    I did a quick down and dirty take on the second one and tried to "fool" soundcloud. Used the piano roll and mouse for the strings and Strat.

    Starcaster neck pickup through Deluxe sim, nothing fancy. I got the feeling this one has been up on here before.



    I tried the third one, but I must say it drove me nuts. So I went back to the first one.

    Try taking all of the added soundcloud junk off the link, up to and including the question mark. That works for me.

    Thanks for the track(s)!

    This challenged me in a good way to look at some things. I played a few takes, hard to execute perfectly, so this one ain't either, but it felt good so here we go:

    @fendrguitplayr - Nice take on a beautiful song Mike. Nice!
    @guitarsophist - Sweet bluesy phrasing and tone GS.
    @telekaster1999 - Really nice phrasing of the melody Tony. Your playing shined here.
    @ghostchord - You made it your own GC. A challenge helps one to grow and hopefully these backers do that. Nice job.

    I think number one was the same than last week's #2..

    Anyways, played it again.



    Sorry about the buzz 'n hum, I was playing with fuzz face / volume knob (main guitar) and slight changes playing position made it worse too at times.

    And levels.. depends how I'm listening them. So not sure overall.

    EDIT3: I took it into Audacity, some noise reduction, less bass frequencies and then compressed some. Less HiFi, but perhaps more clear. Dunno these things..

    @Mellencaster - Nice panning, melodic phrasing and really cool use of tremolo Mike.
    @SbS - Nice bluesey take SbS. My bad for not catching the dup track this week but kudos for playing a new version.
    @NWinther
    (Zone one) - Emotive with Wintherized snarl and growl!
    (Circular reasoning) - Nice thinking and riffin'.
    (Short day) - I like how you played with the melody Niels and made it your own.
    @fendrguitplayr - True and Blue Mike. Nice blues track and playing.
    @Mjark - Pretty tribute to a great song Mark - sweet tone too!

    Right? I have no answer on how they determined what track is going to be flagged anymore.

    My take on #2. I'm surprised that it also passed YouTube's checks:

    #2 for me. One of my all time favorite songs. *I changed the title of the download before I imported it into my daw. Maybe that helped to not draw any attention.

    Beautiful Ken! Can you imagine writing a song like that?

    It's so simple, yet, I've never come up with anything even remotely that "perfect"!
