True Friend (MJRF)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is my submission for the MJ Reunion Fest. You could say when I started on Macjams back in 2005 that this site has become a "True Friend" for me. MJ has helped me rekindle the spark and joy of making music. Hope you enjoy this jam, and have fun at the fest. Now if you will excuse me I'm gonna go and grab a turkey leg at the food tents.

Thanks
for the feedback Sister. I agree, I guess this could live without the vocals, but all of my posts here are instrumental and I've always wanted to incorperate some vocals into a song.

Oh yeah Bill, Play that blues my man
LOve the tone and character of your guitar on this one, and the off setting clean rhythm guitar. The vocal is laid back and gritty, but very cool. Love this one Bill. It's going on th iPod too.

Woah, I can hear how you got your name
Delicious playing! And the super-intensity on the chorus effect works a treat. I like the vocal ... it blends in like it's another instrument but it adds colour and sounds good.

Great insistent rhythm guitar to start
I really like that. Likewise - your lead playing is fantastic. Nice live slap on the vocals - sounds like they're bouncing off the turkey tent. Cool entry.
