Roy,

I had to remember what fills were in there so I just listened to it again. There are a few before the solo and then after. I don't have those but you could probably figure those out easy enough. I have the rhythym guitar part and the solo only.

I'm travelling for work so it may not be til next week before I can get it to you. I have to copy it to a PDF to send and I need to do that at work but I'm taking Friday off :D

I think I'm set. My book stunk, but got me in the vicinity. One of my GP files seems pretty good. Kicking back and playing it now. 8)

Very nice! I've been gassing for something like that for awhile, just waiting for the right one to come along. (And the funds) :?

I did a sound sample and posted in the hear hear section, in case anyone wants to hear what she sounds like. https://www.guitarnoise.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=44649 I listed out which parts were which switch positions there.

Awsome! So, how you liking it? The boy and I were fooling with that song a bit back. I had figured some of the fills out but you know what? They might be gone now. :lol: I'm 48 and have CRS.

I'm enjoying it. It looks so out of place in the 5-slot guitar stand I have. Kind of looks like Andre The Giant talking to some horse Jockeys. I've found one sweet spot so far. It's got an interesting knob set-up. One tone, two pick-up volumes and one master volume. I've been messing with that some, but I always go back to what sold me. It really likes the knobs about 90%. It's kind of like my Squire Tele in that regard.

I am insanely jealous Roy. I've been hankering after a Gretsch for years

Cool jazz box! Never been a fan of them until I saw Ted Nugent.

Enjoy it!
