    Hey guys,

    I jus' recorded a track this morning using my chambered Generation 3 Tele with a Dimarzio Pro Track in the neck (in parallel mode) and Virtual Hot Tele in the bridge.

    Recorded Guitar into Barber compressor, Sans Amp into clean '70's Marshall then sweetened with delay.

    Slide guitar was an old Gibson Melody Maker using a Gminor tuning with a Low C on the 6th string

    Wadya think?

    Dang Harry! I need to learn those smeary doublestops. Very emotive. Some of those countryish things remind me of the great French fusion cat JM Ecay. Ever hear him???

    Hey Harry, love your playing. I downloaded a bunch of your mp3's and played some of them for students this past week. I'm not a great blues player but I think I'm OK at times, maybe less times than more. Anyway, I got a lot of good ideas listening to your mp3's, that are really helping my blues vocabulary, so thanks. I was wondering if you are using the presets on your sansamp, or are you tweeking your own? I have had a sansamp sitting around for years (got it in a trade) not using it and just plugged it in about a month ago and was very suprised by some of the presets, and emailed Tech 21 for the manual. Anyway, thanks again for the clips, and please keep posting:)

    Thx for the kind words... glad to help :)

    I actually didn't like any of the sans amp preset tones at all.
    I tweaked for weeks and came up with mine.
    Happy to share:

    All dip switches set up except 6 and 8
    side switch set to normal
    amp drive: 10::
    pesence drive app 1:00
    treble at 1:00
    vol varies

    Was I imagining things or was that a pedal steel on backup?
