    This one clocks in at about 4 and a half minutes. Chop, slice, dice or just jam away at it all.

    Have fun with it.

    The levels sound fine to me and nice riffs and licks and scorchin' tone.

    Two Katana tones, first the Lead channel, last the Brown channel,

    I like the lead channel for this kind of blues more, the change happens at 1:54, should have gone another chorus with the lead.

    Lead Brown Kat Blues

    What a great compressed wah sound and playing. Like a swarm of bees, but it's singing.

    Quick and dirty. Guess which part with the real amp is and which is the Amplitube SIM tone ;)

    I'm hearing a cool countrified blues jam in the first part and a British blues sound after the change. In another part of this forum today
    there is a topic on blues and different types of blues. I always look at it like vintage vs traditional.



    That cocked wah sound has a great tone to it. Great sounding licks and riffs make for an enjoyable listen. Bonus points for the cool title. :cool:



    Very cool traditional blues and I'll say the first part is Amplitube and Amp used for second part. At any rate, you
    have some great sounding chops. Another enjoyable listen.

    A bit of slide blooze noodle on the Epiphone SG Special, cut it short at the 3 minute mark.

    Thanks. Signal chain was guitar > Dunlop wah > BSIAB2 distortion pedal > preamp > USB interface.

    A year ago I built the BSIAB2 (brown sound in a box) kit from General Guitar Gadgets. Highly recommended as a high-gain sustain sound. I will probably never gig distorted again, but I would have liked this pedal 8 or 9 years ago when I was playing wedding receptions most Saturdays. I was using a Proco Rat for distortion, but this would have been better for solos on "Don't Stop Believing", "Shining Star", "Play That Funky Music". The GGG proprietor told me that the commercial equivalent would be the Wampler Pinnacle pedal.

    @Alan L Cole - Planetoid Blues is chock full of cool riffs and licks. Cool video too!

    @Mjark - Nice rakes and tone along with more great riffs and runs. Nice one!

    @bgmacaw - The slide sounds so natural for this track. Sweet playing from the get go!

    Sounds great! I've assembled a couple of fuzzes and been thinking also amp in a box like solution. These days my setup is guitar -> pedalboard with Palmer Pocket Amp (clean settings) -> interface. May actually think replacing a distortion pedal with something like that. And I like to (try) put things together by myself (at least most of the time). ;)
