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

I figured out how to export an effects (return) bus track.

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.

Todd Simpson
I think you've inspired all of us to push the boundaries a bit. Nice!

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.

On a side note.. I'm mixing this one.
Gabriel Leopardi
Ok guys!! These is what I've done with our takes!! Hopefully Todd makes a video for this one!

I've tried to make it musical, but I also added some a speech from The Godfather. For any reason, the tune reminds me to that amazing trilogy.

Let me know what you think!!!

No! Is there anything wrong with your take? I had issues because the format m4a is not supported in Cubase so I had to convert it. If you want, please send me mp3 or wav files and I'll replace your take.
