    @fendrguitplayr - you captured the mood with a soulful track, I liked the trills especially.
    @jimilee - I liked that you started a distinct melody, played a nice dose of blues, and then closed with the melody; nicely done.
    @Bullfweet - sweet tone, beautiful actually... some jazzy runs; very professional sounding throughout. Country track sounded great also.
    @Mjark - sweet melody, lots of twang, love it! Reggae track had lots of emotion and some cool reggae licks. (@3:00)
    @udoering- nice fat country sound, especially like the cascading ending. Tandem guitars sounded great in the reggae track, a nice soulful production.
    @Mellencaster - liked both tracks.. you really nailed the country track imo; dropping that D was a good call:)

    Yes, give yourself a rest, you have earned it! Was that a dropped-D-tuning or did you use a bariton guitar? Anyhow, the opening of the country track flashed me. Sounds great.
    On the reggae track, one can hear melodic, laidback playing, but the icing on the cake is your added swirly rythm guitar, so decent but effective! A very good idea.

    - And you ended it well. I loved the drop D. Nice laid back lines on the Reggae track.

    @jjpish68 : well played track. Like the guitar sound and how you built it up, playing more intense towards the end.

    @G-52 Real nice mixture of double stops and blues lines .Sometimes melodic in sections
    @fendrguitplayr The tone is sweet with the flanger .The reggae vibe is there and very nice lines.
    @jimilee Indeed the tone is nice , soft but with some bite . Very nice phrasing!
    @Bullfweet Very nicely played and the harmony was sweet on the reggae track Mike! Country tone for miles and sweet pickins!
    @Mjark The first person I thought of when I heard your country track is Don Rich.Impressive!
    Sweet tone for a very nicely done reggae track.
    @udoering Dynamically played country take and it has that Bakersfield tone ,nice!It has a Gilmour feel and nice biting tone with a nice mixture of the second guitar for a sweet contrast.
    @jjpish68 Nicely played version , I quite like that tone with this track!

    I chose the Reggae track. This is my Tele on the neck position through an Elevenrack patch L1 "Echo Champs". Thanks for listening

    @Swingbass Nice lines played all through and lovely tone.

    @knh555 Joining both tracks was cool. Nicely thought out on the country and the reggae tracks both were very nice.

    @Wayfaring Pilgrim Nicely performed track!

    @G-52 It's pretty sweet Andrew ,double stops and all.


    Maybe I should've watch the video first ;)

    @Swingbass Just a hint of dirt with good riffs throughout.
    @knh555 The overdriven tone worked well and the combining tracks was cool.
    @Wayfaring Pilgrim Screamin demon guitar riffage from the get-go.
    @G-52 The clean double stops sound sweet. Nice tone and riffs.
    @Mellencaster Very nice tone and playing on both tracks. I liked the surf reggae vibe you had and
    the country intro was real nice and kept going.

    @Swingbass : the Tele neck pickup I always liked as much as the bridge pu. Good choice! Your track has a (little) jazzy mood; good work.
    @knh555 : ha, I was puzzled, reading the title of the track (overlooking the word "country") and the hearing the first notes; indeed, I had thought about doing the same. The country track was transformed into something else; I like that. Reggea part: you also made this your very own.
    @Wayfaring Pilgrim : excellent version; lovely sound, good playing throughout, well built up.
    @G-52 : that´s your playground, isn´t it!
