    Hey Ted,

    I will say that I can hear you playing scales HOWEVER, I can hear your sense of melody and I like it! The playing and ability aspect come over time, but as you may well know, a person can gain incredible chops and still not have a sense of melody and cohesiveness [spelling?]. It sounds as though you are on the boat! Keep sailing!! M.E.

    I think I know why the scales are so pronounced, I nicked the backing from track 1 of this CD I have:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/stores/artist/glance/-/168044/ref=pd_ap_gut/002-4425141-7637636

    and the 1/2 hr. prior to recording the clip, I was making note of what scales sounded OK and which scales don't. I have no idea what key it is in, and my guitar is tuned 1/2 step down, so when recording, I didn't want to venture out a couple of known positions I knew sounded OK or I knew I'd likely hit a sour note.

    With the drum machine patterns, I know what key it's in, and can explore quite a bit more before hitting a completely out of key note.

    Ted, can you post this backing track for everyone?

    This is one of the best thing I have heard you play.

    Thanks Weldaar!!

    here's the bt link: www.tedm.com/mp3s/backings/btbsotrk1.mp3

    here's a tip, probably most folks here won't need it, but if your guitar is tuned down 1/2 step, playing a minor/blues scale at the 3rd and 10th fret works for me ;)

    Excellent Weldaar!! Great thick tone and great phrasing. The first minute or so I was worried, I was only hearing weird new age sounds, not familiar guitar sounds ;) But then it kicked in!!

    Thanks Rkstarr!

    It's only gonna get better, I just ordered a Phase 90 with R28 mod on the innernet, plus I've been pondering this speed playing program that I also read about on the innerweb... ;)
