Cheers!

That sounds really great!! Hitting some emotional peaks there sir. :clap: :thumbsup:

I don't know what's happened on the Private Messaging. I can't see anything in my Inbox since over a year ago.
The one I sent you yesterday is not in the sent messages or in the outbox.
I tried to send you a PM this morning and that seems to have disappeared completely after sending.

That's the way everything is going this week. Ah well .... off to work now. :sad:

I'll check that. Pls look at your inbox, you might get some test messages... :lol:
Maybe the last update changed something.

All up and running on Private Messages it seems. Cheers! :thumbsup:

Just had another listen to the collab so far after a very long and annoying day of work.
It's looking good, glad I managed something despite the rusty memory and technique (and rusty strings), and the track goes up a gear nicely with the new second part. :clap:

Given that my PRS spent a couple of months in the attic in winter it's doing fine.

I look forward to hearing where the further contributions take us.

Ok....so VB and I have completed our parts. Mark opens it and sets the mood with his soulful sparkling tone! I pick it up, and continue the mood.......I have no doubt the last parts will be marvelous!!

I really enjoy this process gents!....cheers!

Well done, very well done :clap:

I started noodling around but will wait for BB's ideas before recording. I need to practice a bit more :whistle:

Just to keep it up - maybe I can switch the position with BB so that I can record next weekend?

That's fine with me, 12bar. Here's my effort... Played on my '69 SG through my hopped up Fender BJ.

Finally...
As always, as soon as I see a record button my ideas get lost and I fall into safe mode. :icon_whoknows:
I really have to work on that. :big_smile:

Anyway, a lot of fun - thanks! :banana:

Very nice! :thumbsup:
Listening to the whole thing, I can tell that I should have practiced more (or any...). This was fun. I miss these collabs and am glad that my bass player helped me participate. Now he wants the Trainwreck band to put together a backing track for a collab.

Your "safe mode" sounds good to me .... excellent work Gerd! :clap:

I've just listened to the completed track several times and it sounds like it works well to me.
A wide contrast in styles and a shame that I was rusty with lack of practice / playing - but that variety from the four players makes for an interesting listen.

I enjoyed this collab too. A long time since there's been one. Many thanks Tytl for creating the backing track and getting the ball rolling. :thumbsup:
