    A couple of stumbles, but I'm happy with it over all.

    Recorded in Studio One 3 using a Fender CD-140SCE All Mahogany.

    Good job, notes are ringing out nice and clear, the very minor stumbles you mentioned just give it that authentic down home blues feel :)

    Nice and easy feel. It takes lots of practice to get this one and it really shows that you did it.  [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    Thanks.  I got it to where I could play along with the CD and not look at the TAB, and then when I hit record, I went stupid, and couldn't hardly play it.  It took close to an hour to record a decent track.  Darned rented fingers! ;D

    I'm facing the same issues....get to the stage where I can play it withou tab and in time along with a backing track....but hit record and it becomes another challenge.

    Probably need to do it more often and not think about it but that's easier said than done.

    By the way I thought this was pretty darn good.

    That sounded crisp and clear and with good timing to me. It's funny how that record button turns into an instant impediment!
