    Here's a track from my clean tracks collection. I think this was done a little over a year ago, but as I recall, it went rather quickly.

    I'm busy with a couple other things at the moment, so please feel free to have at it. I might hop in later. It's about 9 minutes in length.

    I was at the recording section but I must have gotten lost in the mix.

    Thanks again Papa.

    Kommetjie,
    Nice take on that.

    I've been noodling around with that for a while here.
    Cool track(y)

    Kommetjie, interesting take. What was that lick or melody you were playing? It reminded me of an old western soundtrack. Nice.

    Completely out of nowhere... I was just testing my pedal board feed to PC, and refreshing myself on the ins and outs of Audacity. I happened to have this old mp3 from the Virtual Jam Room on my desktop, so I loaded it in as my test case and hit record... much to my surprise, proceeded to lay down a decent one-off. Now, I am not known for one-offs... my specialty was always spending weeks on something I intended to let others hear.

    This is a total 180 from Kommetjie's tasty take. No theme, no preparatory tweaking or fiddling with controls, and no effects other than a little OD, so a bit dry and generic all around. But, if I go through all that and try to record again, the stakes would be raised, and it would probably require many takes to get one I'd be satisfied with, so I'm taking the easy way out. :)

    So now the final test... get a file uploaded to Dropbox, share the link, and see how everything checks out. I felt safer experimenting with this track cause it seemed to have stalled anyway.

    FYI... I think the bongos are groovy.

    Couldn't resist a bit of fun.:D Started off with a well known lick. (well if it's good enough for Kommetjie, then it's good enough for me):ROFLMAO: Restricted myself to Box1 at the 5th fret. (Papa did that on the Rumba track and I thought it was a good idea as it really makes you think about what you're playing) Tried the bridge pickup for a change, and a random tone from Helix Native, which is quite piercing so if your listening on headphones keep it low.:) Took it from 6.12 - 7.44
