    Thought I would take a shot at "Down to the Depot".  So here it is.

    *sometimes it takes me more than one try at getting it loaded from Dropbox.  I'll just keep updating this
    post until I get it right.

    This is very good. I am impressed. It's live show worthy.

    I just started to learn the song. It's my fourth in the series.

    How did you find it compared to the others?

    Thanks alot Miko.  Well, I haven't really worked on any of the others yet.  I finally decided to work on
    BGIAB since I bought it, gave them all a listen and when I got to the end and without a lot of thought
    decided to start with this one.  But from listening to all of them and following along with the music, other
    than the fast tempo, I don't think it presents anything technically harder than what you've come across
    in the previous four.  There is one lick that repeats note for note several times and a couple of others
    that repeat with just a very slight variation.  So that really helps.  It's challenging, but fun.
    Have fun with your go round with this one.

    Superb. Great playing. You've kept it really tight. Loving that tone.

    I look forward to hearing the rest.

    Well done.

    Hey Kevin, you really nailed it.  The mix quality is good, your playing us smooth and accurate, and it sounds like you are having a GREAT time.

    Thanks for sharing the recording.

    I didn't hear anything that the most critical critic would criticize.  All the bends were spot on. Well done. Where have you been lurking?

    Thanks JestMe, HotLks and david moon for those nice comments. I appreciate it.

    David, recorded a few things in the VJR way back in the spring.  Got a couple things in BGIAB
    and one solo from BGU still visible.  But you're right, as of late mostly lurking.  Spending a lot of time in the woodshed practicing.
