    Enjoyed that, just the right feel for pan-damn-demic. Liked the guitar as well :p.
    Carry on, sir!

    Boy, that was pretty. And the title about sums up the times. When I saw "Peach Tree" I thought you might be from JawJah. I’m gonna watch it several times and try to steal some of the licks.

    A lot of music without a lot of notes. Kudos.

    Haha, we grow some really nice peaches out here in Cali too. But yeah, Georgia folks are all about them peaches. Ask for driving directions, "Just go straight until you come to Peach Tree..."

    I appreciate the nice comment, here's the backing track that I used:

    For the lead play I rang up some Dm pentatonic runs and played chord tones through the progression. Add some bends, slurs and vibrato for good measure. I left a lot of possibilities on the table. Good luck!

    That's some high praise, truly appreciated!

    I left enough clams in there to remind myself that if I slip up don't panic, just work it in and get back on schedule. And the thing about the pentatonic scale worth remembering is that almost every wrong note is only a half note away from one that will work fine.

    Thanks for that! Yeah, for the blooze you only need a handful of notes in a couple of different places.

    It can be hard to tell what will shake out of a blues improvisation. My highest hope is to add something to the progression and still allow it to breathe. Besides, I don't have the chops to light it on fire. LOL

    That's high praise, thanks for that! Now when I'm playing live and some one heckles me with a song request I can yell back, "I don't work for you, I work for me!" LOL

    At the risk of pressing my luck and annihilating any NY comparisons moving forward, I did a cover track a while back using an ambient lecture recorder:

    your helpless starts with great palm mute guitar. your singing however is a little timidly. shout it out man, I wish I could, but my voice is ruined completely

    Hey Clint, thanks for the link! I just spent an hour and a half watching your riffs and trying things out with the backing track. It was a great exercise and brought me back to using the diagonal minor pentatonic pattern, which I haven't visited in a while. Fun to play around with.

    Dang, I lost any NY cache I might have built up! I'm no songbird and the mic is a small lecture recorder, and way too far away. Thanks for the listen and comment!
