Description
Been mess'n around with the Strat.

The altered picture is me, playing my classical, leaning on the wall of the drive way that lead to the home where I lived in Brazil. I believe I was about 16.

Wow, John
Blues at it's best my friend.

Some killer rhythm guitar and lead riffs. And the vox-lyrics tell the story.

This is a fantastic track my friend.

cool tune john
more of a rock song about blues than a blues tune...but very cool none the less....my only nit is the vocal sounds like its not in the same room with the band...i always have problems with that as well....

nice playing all around and a fine mix.

Bewwy Goot!!!

I've been playing my strat a lot. It's not the beafiest sounding guitar but man you just can't beat the action of a strat. Plays like freaking butter.

Killer chops man!
Much enjoyed.

I've got this
American Special Stratocaster HSS, the double coils come in handy just in case. Love the acoustics on your latest and the lyrics too. Who did the vocals?

FEEL said 2436 days ago (December 17th, 2010)
It took several takes
and some cleaning up... but vocals are definitely not my forte. I get tired of asking people to sing my stuff and getting turned down so I got to do with what I got. Have you posted your vocals on macjams yet? I'd like to hear them. I dig your latest tune... some really solid blues. Thanks for taking a listen.

Not sure if I'm supposed to comment on old tunes or not, but saw you had a blues tune and couldn't resist.
This is great dude! I dig the lyrics and vocals, and the guitar is talking to me.

Sure man! That's what they're here for. Sometimes I wonder if there is any reason to leave these older tunes on the site. The songs appear to continue getting hits so I leave them posted. A comment is always appreciated.
