G Major Acoustic Rock Jam.

Here is the BTOM mantra:

If this is your first time, here are the guidelines.

What is it?
Every month I'll post a new backing track. It can be from any genre.
Download the track and record a solo over it.
Post your solo here along with what gear you used, recording equipment, and effects added. The more description you give the better.
I'm going to try and keep the backing tracks to under 2 minutes. Anything more is too daunting. Feel free to shorten it even more.
Try to get your recording in by the 3rd week of the month. We'll start over each month.
I'll take ideas on backing tracks so if you have a request, let me know.

Why do this?
Because it'll be fun!
I think this will be a great way to share ideas and see how each other interpret a piece differently. It will also be a good way to share recording techniques and receive overall feedback on our playing if we desire it.
This is NOT a competition!!!
Majority of people on here post great feedback in a helpful constructive way.

"But Bluto I'm scared!!!"
Look, I get it. Many of us are insecure about posting any of our own playing online. This is a safe place. I'm no guitar god. Keep it fun and I bet you'll learn a thing or two. If you're still unsure, read this: The Man In The Arena. Don't be that cold timid soul.


-peace

Thanks

Nailed it Jay. I gave it a go over the weekend and got some bits and bobs down but the middle kept throwing me, you worked it in perfectly... nice work mate.

Wow a real cacophony of slide and other stuff that all came together nicely, good one Belles.

Great thinking with the slide it never crossed my mind, works really well with the track. Was that open G or something else?

Thanks for all of the downloads (22 this month) and the contributions and feedback. I'm off to hunt down a track for May. If you have any suggestions, hit me up

Thanks kind Sir. I appreciate that.

It's standard tuning. Mostly 2 tracks, but toward the end I added a 3rd that probably should not be there. Angry Gnome preset was a bit over the top toward the end.
