June 2, 2019 at 10:01 am #134529Gary WParticipant
Hello AM’ers – remember me? I think it has been 10 months since I last posted music. As many of you know, I’ve had some health issues. I hadn’t played any guitar for several months until I started preparing for this month’s challenge – so, it’s almost like starting over. My submission is a little sloppy, but I’m happy to be playing again!
I look forward to viewing everyone else’s submissions. From what I’ve seen so far, the quality keeps on going up.

Hot damn, Yeah, I remember you, Mr. Maestro! You clobbered that, Gary. Super to see you back in action again. Awesome guitar tone and awesome playing. Played all out with that signature Gary passion. Rocking, Man!!

All Right! My Man!
Gary W, you haven’t lost your feel for the blues, and you sure caught that fast run; that was great to see you playing and posting again.
And I was going to take a pass this month, so now you’ve motivated me to record something. Gotta do one Gary.

Hey Gary….So great to hear and see you participating. Doesn’t seem as if you’ve lost your touch.
I hope this is a sign that you are feeling much improved. Would love to hear from you.

Back with a bang, really nicely done
I couldn’t feel any glitches, the style was very enjoyable I could listen to it all day

Nice to have you back Gary. I liked your version.
In any case, you transport the blues very well.

Welcome back!! Love your song selection, tone is great and execution wonderful! Be well.

You still got it Gary! Great tone. I’m guessing that was the Ibanez you played for us before. Really nice 👍

Hey Gary, it’s great to see you again, and it’s always great hearing what you play. I hope you’re on the upswing and we hear more before long. You got it!

Very impressing playing.

It is absolutely tremendous to see you posting again. Take it easy though. I don’t want to see you back tearing up all those fast licks again. I think that would have sounded great with that new tele you’re going to get!

Your tone is amazing, Garry (ES Gibson sure looks good, too). Powerful and just perfect buzz to it. A lot of bluesy feel with excellent bend, slides, etc. Very well done.

No slop in that playing. Glad you’re well enough to play again 👍

Welcome back, Gary. If that’s your rusty playing, I’m sure you’ll blow us out of the water once you seriously get back into it 😉
