Okay, blues time again. First let me say that it is NOT me on the vocals, if it was, I would probably quit my day job. :D Anyway I just did the lead and rhythm guitars. I just really love this song, and always wanted to do it........so I did. If your interested, I used my LP Junior with a '59 Model Seymour Duncan through a modified Soldano preset on my PodXT for the leads. Rhythm guitar was my trusty Strat with Texas Specials, again through the Pod with a small tweed setting. Recorded on a Zoom MRS-8. All tracks were d/l'd to my computer where they were brought into Audition for clean up and mixing with final output through Ozone. Hope you like, I really put my all into this one. All comments are welcome, especially on the lead tone. After listening to it just before uploading, I thought maybe a bit too much verb on the lead. But enough chattering, I've really got to learn to let my guitar do the talking, enjoy.

This is quality mate. I love the playing :thumb: the lead tone is very is thick which works but I would have liked to have heard more of the guitar strat sound coming through. Nothing major though. Class job mate :)

Thanks Goport, kind words...........when you say more strat sound, are you talking about the rhythm sound, because the lead was done with an LP and humbuckers.

Wonderful playing. I love the sound of that 59 pup and the tweed setting on the pod. I'm a reverb junkie so I did not think there was too much here. The strat sounded very nice too! Great post.:bowdown:

Thanks, Pinky, Strat and Riff, you guys are too kind. I'm not too sure about being one of the "greats" here, but it's the trying that keeps me going. Thanks again guys.
