    Some nice stuff in there. Some very long phrases, that grooved nicely. Cool use of double stops. Refreshing to hear a clean tone... well 'cept for that little collision with the AC Booster footswitch... damn it got my attention. Perhaps consider kickin' in the OD more often as a dynamic change? of course at a similar volume level.

    Kinna different to use harmonic minor on the root of a I7 chord... as far as I'm concerned, "different" is a great thing! Hey make it harmonic minor with a #4... becomes a cool Algerian belly dancin' blues :)

    You may want to consider not playing over the vocals as much, and perhaps as a contrast, play a couple really short. simple phrases that contain 1 or 2 notes.

    Anyway... Who the hell am I to critique anyone.... jus' my opinion :)

    It worked for me! Like Harry, I enjoyed some of the passing tones that you worked into your phrasing. I really wished that the guitar was louder, though. I kinda stuck to pentatonics and the blues scale in mine, which is something that I don't really care for in my own blues wanking. Yours was more interesting!

    thank y'all so much for yer kind words, & suggestions...i, too, think the guitar needs to be louder (always, huh?) & i should have stuck to "response" phrases to the vocals more often. cheers, guys, yer responses have made my day!
