Found time to play this one over the weekend, running out of titles :? But my head was sailing so The Breeze seemed appropriate.

Bridge pup split single coil, tone is about a quarter turn down from max treble on the TA Cobra S. Sort of Tele-ish me thinks.

Hope you like it, best,

Hi Gerry!

How are you? Long time no see you! I hope all is well. Moreover it seem we will have a sunny week, I'm a little bit tired of the rain and snow this year!

Nice piece, smooth. And cool tip on the tone!

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Dan T and Nuno,

Some other firsts on this one as in the first time I have used Project Sam Symphobia and also Kontakt 3. I really must stop getting stuff for the studio and just sit down and play some guitar. Boys and there Toys.

Oh and if anyone would like a download link just PM me.

Nuno I'm fine too much work which is a good thing but never enough time to play. Weather down here has not been exactly brilliant but no doubt in a couple of months I shall be moaning about the heat Never snows down here so only time I see it is on the news.

BNest,

Gerry

Thanks Smokin and Joe much appreciated.

I was raised on Hank Marvin who for me was the first maestro of the whammy bar and then came along another Brit who just took it to another level.

Here is Jeff Beck playing some blues like no one else can and using a whammy bar like most of us would like to. Another wonderful demonstration of its not what you play its how you play it. In my book pure magic.

Jeff Beck is awesome. Precisely I bought his last DVD last week: great music, great playing and great guest appearances. (I have to recognize I have a soft spot for Tal Wilkenfeld.)

I often watch his YouTube Videos just to remind me how badly I play I bumped into him many years ago in a place called Maidstone, Kent. He must be on something as he looks the same as way back then. He is for me one of the all time greats and as we were talking whammy bars he really is in a league of his own he just makes playing and using it look so easy when technicaly it is extremely difficult. I guess that is what makes the greats great.
