    Well.....to be honest I am not much of a SRV fan...so I took a slightly anarchistic road on this one!
    But it was a fun challenge for sure :D

    Two things that I have taken from this, I got to steal a few licks and I need a lot more practice.

    @Alan L Cole That's pretty sweet with that tone Alan .Some great lines played on this!I'm glad you've got your piano solo in , you're a braver man than I am but you've managed quite nicely.

    @NWinther Nice melodic phrasing Neils. You've turn it on at the 3:00 minute mark on but the part that work the best was after 5:30ish , you really got in a sweet groove.

    estreet If this track wasn't so ingrained in my thoughts from earlier this week .I could've easily envision your take as how I would've interpreted in my mind .Very nicely played!

    As you can see, pretty much everything went wrong. Patrick was my engineer today.

    This was a hard one, The key change is tough. Who changed the key or tuned down?

    @Alan L Cole : it seems we had some problems with those very jazzy chord changes at the end of a verse; the more I appreciate that you played that track with your unique style and tone, and the fierceness of your playing contrasts well with the coolness of the bt.

    @NWinther : Nice opening! Besides some unusual harmonic content there were many passages of great beauty! I also thought that we had a similar usage of delay resp reverb.

    @Mellencaster : that is a nice simple approach, Mike, and simple here is not meant critical!

    @estreet : lovely melodic playing! Love what you did past 1.50 and 4:00!

    @Mjark : What I heard were some beautiful, sensitively played lines! But who is Patrick?

    I brought the bt one step up to E. I found it hard to find notes that fitted to the last two chords.

    The pink one, I am assuming Mark is using it as a analogy.

    2 weeks without touching a guitar, I feel a bit rusty but Eb tuning helps for the bendings.

    1 take, with my hot rodded japanese strat. (just a little eq and reverb added in the daw)

    JCL50 Some very brilliant lines on this JC, I love the slight breakup of your tone , it gets down and dirty.Very enjoyable listen!
