A very impromptu , can't sleep kind of thing. Been very quiet here lately!!! And Very, very, sloppy might I add.....but this was just......well, playing for my own amusement!

I have a feeling that your "very, very sloppy" might be something that some of us might aspire to!
There's an unrestrained edge to the playing that I find very tasty - those high notes really squeal in places. And sloppy, if it's there, doesn't extend to losing the pulse of the music - so it works damn fine for me.

You have put a lot of feeling in this song. It's raw blues and it's the best.

Yeah ... like VB says ... if that's sloppy I wanna be sloppy too!!! Your sense of timing, not just sticking to the beat but wandering in and out of it without getting completely lost (like some of us mere mortals would) never fails to amaze me. Assuming there's a BT involved it would be handy to have a link or pointer to it to play with. Second verse (and maybe also fourth) is, for me, screaming out for some bluesy/ethnic vocal intervention. Lovely stuff!!!

Sounds really good!
I hear what you are calling "sloppy", I struggle with that kind of thing in my playing. It doesn't interrupt the flow, though, and gives the piece a nice "live" feel. Much emotion.

That kind of sloppiness is what makes i.e. Buddy Guy so special...
