I'm sorry guys. :o I've been swamped as of late. I can get this updated soon with a backing track unless someone's got something they can put up for me. I would also love it if someone can put up a voting thread for last month's track. I'll be back on form next month I promise.

I can do a backing track, I've got a few in the works that I've nearly done so I can put up one before the day is done :)

Cheers Julian. This is the one Zoso_jp came up with last month when talking about the 'crunchy out of tune' BT... I've shortened it to around 2 mins and removed the ...er... monologue at the start! I'd prefer something a bit more melodic, so if you have something then cool... else we could use this.

BT suggestion

Oh yeah, Magic - no worries, thanks for the efforts you put in! ;) tis all appreciated!
Can you play "Far Far Away?"

Yes - how far would you like?

Ok I've got one. It's one that I've been jamming to for a little while just for fun. It's energetic and has maybe a bit of a Dire Straits feel to it. It's not too original or complicated. It just goes

A B C#m

-for the whole track.

Go to

Good times! ;)

I say lets make Julian’s track the official BT for this month, so we don’t have to depend on tracks from other sites. ;)
Someday I`ll play like in my dreams.

Man. I got the track onto my ipod, set it on repeat, and just went to it. I must have jammed over that track for a good hour or so. Better look out... Weslaba is comin to town. :cool:

Did you try fingerpicking the lead on an electric like Mark Knopfler? I wouldn't mind giving that a try...

Ummmm... Well actually since I don't have any picks on me right now, I've been fingerpicking the whole thing. Quite frankly I like the tone a lot better that way, and theres some cool licks that you can do better w/o a pick. :rolleyes:

it is weird how three chords force you to sound like Mark Knopfler ---as long as you stay in key that is, this is a fun one!!

Once my soundclick account clears, I shall be posting a rough attempt at it. It actually sounds really good if I do say so myself. I've been working with some new gear, so I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. :rolleyes:

Ok here is my first take. I let some strings ring out and timing is off in places but I had a few beers before hand so maybe I'll make it better later. I liked the bg track Julian.

It's creatively named: July GT Solo 1:
