    Here's a BGU Live 2015 practice track Griff provided back in the day. I strung it together 3 times to provide some extra room, so don't be surprised by the breaks every 3 minutes or so.

    Also added basic rhythm since his track was just vocals, drums and bass. Yes, this one has vocals so you can practice your fills. Don't play over the singer. :)

    I also added some bar effects in the background, so it will sound like we're live onstage in a bar.

    It's in A. I played the opening 12-bar solo to :24.

    Have fun!

    ***RECORDING***

    This was fun! It was kind of like getting all of the food groups wrapped into one track. Some comping, a few fills and a little lead thrown in. I took from 0:24 - 1:23.

    It is an “SRV” patch in Bias FX 2 and when I use it with my tele, it is a great combination. Just enough dirt to solo but clean enough for chords.

    I'm sure that Marv would love to be able to take credit for the singing, but that's Griff. LOL

    Great job! My only suggestion is to change the “www” to “dl”, that way we won’t have to download the track to our dropbox to listen to it. Otherwise the playing was hot. Hope to see you down here in the vjr in the future.
