    I've been jamming over this one all week - it was a gorgeous backing track, but when I came to record my preamp decided to malfunction with 24 hours to the deadline :(

    1st: @susbemol ; - lovely tasty phrasing and killer lead in to the more melodic section with those synth sounds (which suited the backing to a tee, wish I'd thought of that). Loved how you ended it too, perfect. 

    2nd: @stratman3142 - as above, super tasty playing. Really nice tone and fluid lines when you took off in the second section towards the end as well!

    3rd: Going to cheat and have a joint 3rd with @Bellycaster and @fastonebaz - former had some lovely melodic playing, latter mixed your usual fierce attack with lots of nice melodic ideas too. The first two entries just pipped it in terms of phrasing though imo. 

    Well done all!

    5pts @susbemol wow! Awesome. Tone.  Phrasing.  Composition.  Playing. Mixing.  Splendid. Great work. 

    3pts @stratman3142 I was convinced this was my winning choice until Susbemol came along :lol: Rant enjoyed the tone and precision here

    1pt @Bellycaster I enjoyed to tone and playing here too but wasn't quite as blown away as the others.

    I'm going to say 'same here'! ;)

    Bit bummed that I never found the time to make an entry (to my own backing track!) this month.

    5 points : @subsemol : Great phrasing and melodic ideas. Good synth sound and overall excellent fit to the track.
    3 points : @Bellycaster : Nice low gain sound and good fit to the backing. 
    1 points : @fastonebaz : Great technique as usual but a bit too aggressive for the backing for me.

    I forgot to ask if anyone wants to provide a backing track for the next one. But I'll need it tomorrow, so sorry about the short notice.

    If not, I'll use one of mine.

    It's not a competition.

    5 Points @susbemol - Loved the Fusion style playing, great note choices. Fantastic idea for the Guitar Synth, sounded very Steve Winwood.

    3 Points @stratman3142 - Nice mix of styles, great trem work and lovely legato runs. Very good fit for the track.

    1 Point @fastonebaz - Great Skill as usual, very powerful solo. 


    Is this a vision of normality I see before my eyes?
