    Hi,

    This is far heavier than what I usually write. This time it was my Yamaha Pacifica 604W that got me into this mess. Guitar sounds courtesy of Native Instruments Guitar Combos PlexiCombo.

    Here is my take:
    Pacifica Riffster

    Here is the BT:

    If you download it please take the time to comment as I hope to learn from your views.

    Cheers,

    Hey Mats,

    I didn't know you could get so mean!:cool:

    Although I am a pseudo jazz blues fusion wannabe, I grew up listening to Led Zep, D. Purple, B.Sabbath.....as well..

    Nice playing.;)

    Hi Marin,

    Thanks for listening!

    I am too a psuedo jazz blues fusion wannabe but I grew up listening to nothing particular and started my musical journey with the classical guitar. All roads lead to Rome, eh?

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Loved it. Threw it ni the Mp3 player for the hard ride up the mountain roads on my crotch rocket today as part of my "motivational" music :D

    Played over it as well and had fun doing it. Ill mix it down and post it when i get time.

    I had fun with that. Thanks man. It has plenty of room to jam over. It's rare for me to find a rockin tune like this that doesn't demand shredding. I'm an old geezer and shredding ain't my thing. good stuff :)

    Hi,

    Glad you like my humble efforts.
    My next track will probably be a bit different.
    Thanks for taking your time to provide feedback. Much appreciated!

    Cheers,

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for listening!

    I played through the Plexi Combo for all the distorted sounds. The clean sounds (very few) were done with the Twang Combo.

    Cheers,

    Another cool tune, Journo. The solo was not overdone and fit perfectly. This one is way outside what I typically jam to, but it's such an upbeat track, I may have to give it a shot anyway. ;)

    Hi Norm,

    Thanks for the words!
    This is also not what I normally do but if I don't do a little "off stuff" once in a whil I won't know what really is normal for me :D

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Hi adlibmusic,

    Your sound was quite a bit darker than mine and thus created an interesting contrast.

    Sometimes I wish I lived in the US so I could partake in the vast offerings of products of the boutique or small company variety.

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Hi Myles,

    Thanks for the kind words. "My show", yeah! In my dreams but it's a nice dream. I'm too old and have too little hair to still have the urge to pursue that dream. For fun I play old standards in a big band (Miller, Basie, Porter and similar stuff). Once in a blue moon there's a soul band. Nothing exciting and no place for my own compositions.

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Just realized i never put up my track for this so i went back through the cobwebs and found it. If memory serves me right i had just put new strings on which explains why it gets painfully out of tune at one point...and i pause for a quick retune several times :D

    Had a blast playing along to this one....almost has a David Lee Roth/Steve Vai feel to it from the Eat em and Smile/Skyscraper era.

    Hi Dave,

    Better late than never, eh? :D

    I enjoyed your take. When I wrote this one I was actually going for the kind of intensity you play with. I wouldn't mind having the fluidity of your phrases either. Back to practice!

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Thanks Mats.

    Now, being that i am self-taught and dont even know the names of the chords i play(i play by ear and just know how they sound) you are going to have to 'splain "fluidity of phrases" to me :D

    It is tracks like these when i wish i was good at soloing. I hear all these great licks in my head but i just dont posess the talent to play them :( I guess i would consider myself a "one string wonder" :D I have certain patterns that i know how to play that let me branch off onto other strings but thats about it...my inventory is quite repetitve unfortunately.

    i really do enjoy your backings and i always look forward to new ones though some of yours are too complex and i cant follow along with them....but i enjoy them just the same.
