    Listened to everyones tracks. Now after a second listen my comments:

    Niels - I love your sense of humor with your track title and the anarchist comment but I'm afraid we'll have to issue demerits for your not being a SRV fan! Some nice soloing in there as you are feeling your way through the track - definitely not flotsam.

    Mike - Beautiful emotive soloing and tone - very sweet and passonate playing. Liked your outro chord.

    Carl - I think you provided some nice blues grit and some cool melodic phrasing with you guitar work. Nice!

    Ulrich - Beautifully mixed and played. Love that reverb effect. Your passion is evident on this track. Great range of tone and sweet melodic and bluesy soloing!

    Mark - You would have stayed this track with that tone and those blues lines with a more fully developed idea of where you wanted to go with this. Awesome track in progress IMHO!

    JC - Awesome! Another beautifully emotive version of this backer. Very cool harmonic and whammy bar technique. Masterful wailing on that axe, making it sing and cry, wringing great emotion out of it.

    I did not change the key or tune down. Just toughed out that half step position.

    Here's my take on it - I play mostly jazz stuff in a small group, so Eb is a fairly familiar key for me. It's not so easy with a missing B string though.

    Some cool ideas here Rainbowbear998. I like your mix or fusion of blues and jazz and that guitar bridge at 2:53 is sweet. Cool chords and nice tone and technique and all sans the B string! Nice!

    @JCL50 : you got me with the first notes: sound, feeling, phrasing - just beautiful! I also dig your ascending gain.

    @rainbowbear998 : Alan´s right.

    Heh oh well I am no SRV fan....I had had more than enough in the early 90's.....
    I grew up on alot of Rory Gallagher...never understood the fuzz about SRV?? I dig Jimmie Vaughan though..
    And then came all the clones...almost made me quit playing the strat..... ;)

    He made a few things that I really like....so I would never diss him in any way, plus I loved reading the articles with him in the old GP magasines, as he had alot of intersting stuff to say!
    I just had enough real fast, as I have heard alot of other blues players....it was nothing new to me, so I never got the enormous hype surrounding him and Double Trouble....and there is a band I cannot stand one bit...not my kind of stuff....I know that it is a big thing in the guitarplaying world....sorry my taste is not in that way...while wide and diverse...not that!
    I have sold all my records...yes I bought it to hear what all the fuzz was about....but it just never catched on....and a few months ago my wife was going to a fleamarket to sell some of our stuff, she was handed all the records that I had...sell them would you please? :D

    Thanks to all for the nice words :) I was being really contrary...doing total off notes and strange off the beat stuff....even set my delay for a really out there endless repeats....just to sound nothing like the original.

    Loads of nice takes..... :) It is always fun doing something you do normally not touch.

    Diverse tastes and diverse music - it's all good and I wouldn't want it any other way.

    Nah...7 minutes I don't think so. Maybe in a live setting I could play that long, not on this though.

    Sneaking one in; I played it, so I might as well post it:) probably shouldn’t have used the intro to warm up...

    @Raimonds : a nice tone indeed! very appropriate playing, it seems to me that you really settled in the track after the first half. Nice lines!

    @G-52 : I had also thought about playing something along the intro, but the decided to skip the intro completely- especially as jazz is unknown territory to me. What comes after the intro sounds as if you carefully feel your way into the track - nice!

    There’s some really sweet chord work throughout the first two minutes or so - you’ve also got a cool guitar sound going on there.

    @G-52 I like the chord play mixed among the soloing , it gives a nice jazz feel and the guitar tone is quite favorable. Nice work.

    Some nice pickin' Andrew and country cool clean tone. I thought it was funny that you warmed up over the SRV intro.
