    I cheated and used my Les paul this time instead of my Tele and went totally free style with a loose outline.

    I used mine on both. There's no rule despite where we are. Reminds me a little of the song Girlfriend by Mathew Sweet.

    Thank you sir. I've never heard that song, so I guess it wasn't bad. My playing needs more direction I think.

    @alainvey I must say that I'm glad you've gave this one a shot .Your melodic styling does enhance this backer to a lovely track.

    @jimilee If has strings, we don't care what is used here.:) Ha!Don't we all need direction but I think some of the members here will lead by example ,so you're in good hands .Nice riffen! Sweet dirty tones too!

    @NWinther : lovely stuff! I like especially your version of the first track. Your playing and tone reflect nicely the mood of the track that to me sounds metallish.
    @alainvey : great track! I always dig the tones and lines you choose, and on this one it´s brilliant!

    @jimilee : like Mike says. Starting without direction can lead to a total mess, but also to very intense and surprising improvisations.

    I started out on the Em track with creativity and passion. But then I took a break to listen to the Happy Track in A. Well, that was that as I picked up my trusty slide and did this clams and all. I hope you like it.

    You got a special tone, and you play the slide very well. Yes, I like it!

    Thanks Ullrich and others for liking my "Happy Track" rendition. I had some free time today so I went back and spent a little time with the Donation track. This one I actually used my Welch Tele with Bill Lawrence pickups. I used the bridge pup through an Elevenrack. The patch was F4 "Lose the Pick". Thanks again

    @Swingbass : a very well played version, I think. Sounds organic and melodic, despite the partly strange chord changes.

    Late again with the second track, but here it is with warts and everything:

    Work has me so busy these days it's hard to comment .

    Swingbass Very nicely done tracks Swingbass . Slide playing was very cool on the first and the Em one was well played

    udoering Country style on the opening verses and you've progress into a southern rock style which gave a lovely build up .Then it gets epic when the second guitar jump in, love the lines on 4:09 true rock version closer .Well done!!

    I enjoyed that first track hopefully will get time this weekend to play with the second one. And since I saw a few of you used your LP's I broke out the PRS SC58.

    Thank you @Mellencaster

    Thank you @udoering - a couple weeks ago I stumbled on waves.com and got a few of their plugins from the Abbey Road Collection. Been playing around with them a lot trying to learn them. REDD, J37 Tape, Reel ADT, And the Vinyl plugin. Good stuff!
