    I could not sleep last night like usual, so I got up around 3:20 AM, took a leak :D, then decided to play my Martin for a few minutes. I went downstairs, plugged straight into the Roland, and did one take of Blue Bossa. Oh yea, I sleep in the nude, and this take was done like that. LOL!! (Take that Scott.) :p

    Its hard to get a decent sound with a flat top for me. I was digging in real hard because I could not hear what I was playing. (No headphones, and the backing track was too loud)

    Anyway, its the top clip here.....

    Great take Tag! Loved it. Nice tone too.... Even better than the Tippers!

    I should pinch a few of these lines ;) Some good ones in there. I also heard a few of my triad thingies mixed in.....

    Tag, Man this is the best thing I have ever heard from you. Never heard you on the acoustic, sounded great. Heard some things that reminded me of my days on tour with Earl. I was so into what I was listening to that I actually got the picture out of my mind regarding the circumstances of which it was recorded.:eek: :eek:.
    Very Good, Very Good.
    Peace,
    Duffy

    Loved it man, the sound of the guitar was very nice! Don't know why, but I got sort of a Bireli vibe here... anyway, great stuff!

    Great playing Tag. I hear hear lots of Benson style phrasing (a good thing!) and just fine playing all around. Be proud!

    Oh yeah..... I'm glad I'm not the only one who plays acoustic nude in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. ;-)

    Scott.. Thanks! Learn some of mine, and you will be relearning some of yours for sure. ;)

    Hey Duff! Still listening to your Christmas CD and being blown away! Always special getting a comment from a player of your level.

    Ivers.. Great ear! I love Birelli, but am really not influenced by him. However, I listened to a ton of Birelli videos Scott turned me onto that day. Maybe a little of that vibe came out in the clip. The acoustic sound adds to it as well. There is actually one of your lines in there too. LOL! :AOK

    Fret, Slack and jammin...Thanks for listening and the positive feedback! Next time Ill post a video! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Hey, this was really nice! Your attack really works well on an acoustic.
