    Ok, here is another of my takes over an existing backing track. This is a Scott Lerner track pointed out to me by L5player. Here's the BT: SlowBeckishBacking

    My take is here: BeckishJam

    In staying with the Jeff Beck theme, there's plenty of "blue" notes in there, and a few "green" ones, if ya know what I mean :D

    With the exception of a few bars early on, this is all one take, which might not be surprising to some - what with all the "questionable" notes! After listening to it a couple times, I decided I like it :)

    Gear used:

    '87 Ibanez Sabre (bridge humbucker) -> Carl Martin Compressor -> Barber Direct Drive -> TC SCF chorus -> Guyatone MD-3 delay -> Ashdown PeaceMaker 40 clean with volume about 1 -> SM58 -> MBox and ProTools LE.

    I'd appreciate feedback - I know there are a lot of great players on this site, and I'd love to hear what you think - good or bad.

    Like the whammy work you have going on there. Thanx for posting the backing. Here's my go at it..
    Gear used: Firebird with Fillmores pickups.

    Hey Scott - thanks for the nice backing track. I'll check out your other BTs and your take when I get a few minutes.

    Its funny, between TGP and the Sacramento Craigslist mucisian's forum where I also posted, everyone has complimented the whammy work - the very stuff I was originally going to replace!

    I'm glad I went with my gut and left that stuff in :)

    Scott,

    just got a chance to listen to Bluetude - nice and jazzy! I really liked some of the fast runs towards the end.

    I'm gonna resist the temptation to play over this again. ;)

    Nice to hear some new takes on Scott's "classic."

    This BT is definately a classic. I had another go at it with the Normster amp.

    I assume you are just being a wise-ass :D - I was obviously NOT requesting info on how to get my amp to feed back...

    Thanks, Geo! I had a lot of fun doing this track - I'm really proud of the way it flows and breathes.
