Mix: https://soundcloud.com/user-473782366/dark-blues-mix

Only guitars: https://soundcloud.com/user-473782366/dark-blues-guitars-only

And yes, I know the title says "blues" biggrin.gif

@steve gilfield ... I dig the acoustic approach!
Semi quarantine here in La La land.
I kinda went for a Santana vibe.

With track -  Dark_Blue___MAIN.m4a ( 677.23K ) : 51

Just guitar -  Dark_Blue___Guitar.m4a ( 396.22K ) : 29


I figured out how to export an effects (return) bus track.
*I don't know if you can use them or not.
Delay -  Dark_Blue___Delay.m4a ( 267.68K ) : 32

Reverb -  Dark_Blue___Reverb.m4a ( 285.77K ) : 27

Wow! Great tone mate! Your phrasing is very interesting here! It seems that this backing brings out our best Santana version! biggrin.gif

Thanks for your take!

Thanks Gab!
It's a great set of chords to play over. You can go rock, jazz, latin or get a little ethnic. There is potentially a lot of room to breathe on that track.

Yeah! It is. I continue using this one for my diary jam sessions.

Very cool take. I hadn't thought about going this direction but it works really well! Score.

That's great Todd!! You sound cool over Dark Blues backings mate!

Thanks for your take!!

Posted by: Todd Simpson Sep 5 2020, 11:16 PM

Thanks!! It was a very fun bit to solo over smile.gif I wanted to make the high bends sound sort of like someone crying/wailing/mourning.
