Actually I still hate that particular backing with a passion.
I thought your lines didn't make sense against that feel...having said that i also thought the lines were absolutely killer. Methinks I will rip off one or 12 of them. Very, very good.

LOL!! I KNEW you loved that backing! :p

Thanks Ed. It felt ok to me I think. Lol! My playing is so messed up, I really cant tell anymore.

See if you think the second take is any better feel wise.

Yes, I agree. I was more comfortable with the backing on the second one, thus the more relaxed feel. The first one I was feeling it more though for sure. Second is kind of clinical. Good ear! :AOK

Playing on the 2nd take works beetter with the feel of the backing. But the firrst one had cooler lines I thought.

I is in terms of fit. But don't take me the wrong way. I thought it was to different from what I'd expect over that backing. If I take that forst solo and build a backing behind it you'd have a kick ass thing.

As for your playing being messed up...DUDE, stop with the self deprecating nonsense...that is some happening playing. At least for this lowly Rock/Fusion jack ass. :)

There were a few bits that I thought sounded exactly like what Pat would have played. Very nice playing, but I'm with Ed on the backing track. I wasn't listening too closely, but it sounds like you got your clipping problems under control.

One criticism: A bit too much reverb for my tastes. I'm sure it sounds great in the room, but putting a microphone up close really makes the reverb jump out. I like the sound of my Princeton Reverb's reverb on between 2 and 3 when playing, but turn it down or off when recording.

Yeah, some interesting lines. The timbre drives me nuts--just not my taste at all--but the playing sounds great.

I dug the repetition lines in the second take. I really like how you take the diminished licks and end them in your own way.

Amusing where some lines resolve across measures. "Afficionados" may critique it but I find it refreshingly unique.
