An improv... (Sorry, Jeff...)

Okay, I'm going to try this - right click and save and whatnot. This is a one-take live improv (Aug 9/03) over the nice backing track that's out there for 'Cause We Ended As Lovers, a Jeff Beck (?) song that I don't know, as I haven't heard it before. But the track, cord progressions, are just too nice not to have some fun with.
The recording is a little on the quiet side, I think, so turn it up some.

The track

I liked it a lot! Very nice phrasing, precise fingering and a killer "crunch" tone.

Well, thank-you for your kind comments. I didn't expect so positive a response.
The equipment used; my RG7-620GN (Blaze Custom bridge pickup, disconnected tone control, high-pass filter capacitor removed, (prototype) handrest over LoPro7, re-shaped and Tung-oiled neck w/top 4 frets scalloped - yes, I like to tinker =]) into a 30' Canare cable w/Switchcraft ends (I solder 'em all up myself) straight into my POD 2. POD straight into the recorder. That's it.
That, and a nice smattering of luck. =]

I did some other one-shot stuff that day, too; perhaps I'll post some more at a later date.

Thanks again.
Steve

Build up, good... Sound, good... Phrasing, good... Music, good... Technique, good... Feel, splendid... Mix, good...

Nothing quite wrong with this improvisation. Sounds very nice to me, I still need to hear the original though, the only closest version I have is LGMTs one from a little while ago. Keep on going, and we wanna hear your OWN stuff next time as well!!!
