    My first go, I'm gonna try to finish it up with the cry baby hooked in.
    LP R7, neck pick up, into S-Gear with as clean a setting I could get & still quack a bit.
    Been into clean sounds lately & my guitars have takin a real beating cause of it,
    so have my hands.:) Is what it is.

    Thanks Frank,, I've been struggling with the playing lately, but I'll always try to get a BTHOM post up.
    Never too old.

    Here goes nothing.
    I've never recorded anything before, so I hope it's not too bad.
    I haven't really played around with backing tracks before either, I'm a home hobbyist that usually just tries to play along to records and CDs, so I have a long way to go with improvising.
    This was fun for me either way, so I'm sure I'll be back for more BTOM threads.

    Thanks parts!
    That's definitely my goal, to step outside my comfort zone and gain a bit of confidence along the way.
    It was a huge step for me just to push record for the first time (I got all stiff and nervous, even though I was the only one in the room), never mind actually posting a clip here with all the great players that are regular contributors.

    Thanks again for your kind words and encouragement. :thumb:

    Nice take paradice, I really liked how you brought this track to a close that last minute or so with those bends and vibrato's. A very nice touch, with good emotion.

    Thank you sir. I haven't touched a guitar in a month due to moving in to the new place. Went in completely cold. Wasn't overly happy with this take, recorded a second one which was even worse, and just gave up :laugh2: The digits are a bit rusty. Looking forward to next month :thumb:
