    Severely abbreviated, before it completely fell apart for the fifteenth time.
    Epi Junior Special, E-bow'd.

    Ah, thanks guys.
    I choke when that camera's going.
    Best takes are in the atmosphere.
    E-bow is two weeks old, have wanted one for 30 years.
    Epi Junior just jumps underneath it; you gotta rein it in.
    Telecaster didn't like it so much.

    Tried to record a 1st take last night...ended up about 5th take before I got all the way through without any disasters...but the ****in PC crashed and lost the file.

    So this is a slightly angry ' 2nd' take!

    DavGrape, very freakin' cool!!! Great sound.

    I'm gonna make a go with this. First time, and not really happy with the sound or the playing, but I guess you gotta start somewhere. Going to try another tonight with a different git. I used a direct USB connection to record to computer, and it doesn't sound the same as mic'ing the amp.

    Thanks to Parts and Dot for some input on the rough draft of this. I would sound much worse without their help.

    2nd take, Les Paul with Aldridge pick ups, just put em in , fired up the BTOM Feb track to test em out.
    Same amp OR15, reverb is a Lexicon plugin.
    Playing is all over the place in the backfield, I blame that on excess beverage.
    & my wife suggesting I turn the guitar level down in the mix.

    Thanks , appreciate the comments.
    Thought I'd sneak in another take before the end of month.
    This one with Jem7 & 4x12 stereo speaker cab. Vintage 30's & Creambacks.
    panned hard Left & right. Or TH30, Lexicon reverb on a large hall.

    Awesome takes this months, folks.

    Did some cleaning of my message box and it took me down memory lane, and it reminded me of how important other musicians encouragement is and how a small piece of friendly advice can spark energy, creativity, and determination.

    A series of messages from several years back reminded me of this. I'll be pm'ing the person to thank them again.

    We are, after all, sharing in a love that runs deep. This is why I choose to make a small gesture and help with picking out these jams each month. My playing might not add to the body of work, but providing a canvas for others to use surely does.

    -peace
