    Here a new little track I did made. 2 versions:

    With my Seymour Duncan CC equipped custom chambered LP style Jacaranda:

    Bet Ahead Jacaranda

    and a more derranged version with my early 198? Fernandes lawsuite stratocaster with 1982 Fender pickups:


    Bet Ahead Fernandes Strat

    Both clips are played with AC Booster + Engl Screamer.

    And here is the backing:

    GREAT playing AND backing. The Jacarande clips has great tone fat and juicy. The other has a great Strat tone, i can't decide which one i like most. Two great takes, thanks

    Hey, thanks. Funny you should say that thing about the Jacaranda...I was planning to sell it since I haven't been playing it much. I don't know why...it looks great and sounds great, but maybe it's just too sophisticated for me! :) pics: http://www.marinblues.it/jaca2/

    Hi Marin,

    Glad to hear you're back with another good BT. I often get bored with my own.

    I aslo have a hard time choosing my favourtie take from you. I will divide it.
    Jacaranda for tone and Fernades for timing and musicality.

    Thnaks for the BT!

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Nice singing tone on Jacaranda. Great playing! I think I with Journo on this one. I dug both takes, but the strat take spoke to me more. Awesome! Great backing btw.

    I was messing with some amp tweaks this morning and decided to use your backing... ;) Just one take. Clams and all....

    I treated it as if it were in G btw.

    Nice jangly tone on the strat clip, but I like the fat, juicy tone of the first one better. Cool playing on both!

    Maybe A minor would have been a wiser choice.... LOL! Maybe I should delete mine. haha

    Marin, Dave and Scott - you all did an excellent job on this great Marin backing. Thanks, Marin!

    A Dorian worked best for me . .

    my take

    I liked that a lot, especially the brake. Some Sco in there. ;)

    Great playing, Dave.

    If I may suggest, perhaps a bit less gain would have let your dynamics come through a bit better. just my taste...i could be wrong....:)

    Fig, your tone is just getting better and better. Nice solo and original choice of notes!

    (It's just a bit dry, perhaps a bit of reverb....? :) )

    Thanks, Marin! I purposely did it more dry because lately I kind of felt the reverb has been a bit too wet. So I guess I went too far in the other direction.
    I'll work with it a bit more. Thanks :)

    hey, maybe it's just me. I never found your tone too wet!

    Here's take 2. The first take was with my Weber 1265's. I adjusted the tone a little on my amp (turning up the treble, the loop master volume and the treble bleed knobs in back) and used my C-Rex's - and added more reverb and a tad more delay.
    :)

    second take for tone
