Re: Learning a language to take your blues a bit further.

Thanks for these post s/ links, and I will try and get around to having a proper look - something of this type needs proper examination. :D

For some reason I seem to have less spare time since I retired! :icon_whoknows:

Re: Noodling for a short video

Nice update Gerd - your music captures the peace and tranquillity of these journeys so well. :clap: I like the way you can bring those guitar sounds in that fit so well too!

Yes indeed - funky!
All the techniques, and most definitely with the 'pxm' trademark style! :thumbsup:

Re: Link to ma channel, lots of guitarblues.

You are very busy in producing music!

I have not had time to listen to much - just sampled a few parts here and there, but interesting music no doubt.

You really have an individual style and have found your voice. That is a worthy achievement! :thumbsup:

Re: R.I.P. Jamie

:sad: Sad to hear that news.
So often the drummer is overlooked.
Drummers of the quality of Jamie remind us of the big contribution they can make.

RIP Peter Green

Announced today that Peter Green has died at the age of 73.
A sad piece of news - the producer of such sweet tones from a guitar.

One of my favourite Peter Green moments. A solo ""World Kepps Turning" when Danny broke a string.

RIP Peter.

A Mac and Studio sounds like a great way to celebrate the 50th - have fun with them. :thumbsup:

Firehawk is a nice spicy / spiky track!

Re: My guitar

:cool: Nice quality guitar!! Looks like no pick-guard is standard on this one.

Does that have Duncan pickups? Wired up with a very versatile set of sound options?

Main thing is you're fond of it ... that makes it a good guitar.

The more conventional end of the Scott Henderson range. I enjoyed it. :thumbsup: They know how to build a piece!!!

Re: CatTrix & Dogbites // Bop Birds Blues

Cattricks and Dogbites - something about the chords progressions put me in mind of the areas that Mahavishnu explored. This was not too far out of the box for me and I enjoyed it. :thumbsup: Supported by very solid drums / bass rhythm. I found Bop Birds Blues the trickier one of the two but I admire...

Re: Scott Henderson.

I haven't heard much of his music. But he certainly has a style of his own and is adventurous in his ideas of what to play. :thumbsup: There is something of the type / style of his music that remind me of what guitarists like Jeff Beck and Allan Holdsworth explore. I seem to recall seeing a video of...

Re: Original A Minor Blues Backing Track

Sounds fine to me too! :thumbsup:

All worked out nicely - three contrasting styles / tones but they do fit together.
I enjoyed taking part - thanks fellers. :D

Re: Original F Minor Backing Track

I've just noticed this and I've downloaded the new mp3 version.
I will definitely try and start working on it today. It's certainly a BT that causes melody lines to pop up in my head. :thumbsup:

I've downloaded the Am backing track from your fairly recent post Tom, and will play around with it a bit and see if something happens! :D
Hopefully not neighbours throwing bricks through the window. :big_smile:
