Sounds awesome, wish I could download them to use as backing tracks to play along with!

If you tell me what you want, I'll record a track for you to play along to. It'll give me a challenge. "I beg you call the tune."

Can you teach my rhythm guitar player how to play Lost Sailor? Hell, can you teach me? Post up a video of that!
By the way, having watched some of the clips you recently posted, your rhythm player is really good---I'm sure he could figure it out. He seems to know his stuff. And he's got "the moves like Bobby." Maybe there's a hit song in that line?

Those really are great!

They are very professional. Like a "Best of Bob" lifted out of a multi-track.

I'm sure you create a studio project making those available for a "reasonable" fee. I'd bite.

Peace

Thanks. Not interested in making $ off of someone else's work. It's more about paying tribute.

Waldo, I've got most of this worked out and ready to record. I'm literally on a plane to London though so I will do it when I get back next week. I enjoyed the challenge and it gave me some new insight and appreciation into some songs that I wasn't overly familiar with. I've got something special for you on Hell In A Bucket (clue--it should be called "Exile in a Bucket."). PM me so I know how to get 'me to you when they're ready. Also, are you looking for a full track with drums, bass & keys, too, or just the rhythm guitar track that you can jam on top of? If the former, I'll need to send to my brother to program before I play the rhythm guitar parts.

I'll let it be Waldo's call. I'm gonna send the tracks to Him when they're done and he can do whatever he likes with 'em.

Hey Guys (especially Waldo),

I haven't forgotten about the practice tracks. After I got back from London, I had to have surgery on my stomach to fix a rare condition that was actually potentially life threatening. I'm home now and the surgeon thinks he's fixed everything. Just in a lot of pain and haven't felt up to recording yet. In the meantime, my amazingly talented brother made an entire drum/bass/keys track to Hell In A Bucket for me to lay the rhythm guitar on. HIAB was not previously one of my favorite Dead songs but, having woodshed the guitar parts prior to going into the hospital, I do have to say that I've come to really appreciate the song, especially the lyrics and BW's vocal.

Anyway, the drugs have kicked in and I'm watching soccer waiting for the pain to subside. I promise I'll get to this as soon as I feel up to it and you won't be disappointed. I know exactly what I want to do on it.

By the way, having worked with my brother remotely on this (he lives in Chicago and I in LA), it actually got me thinking that it might be really fun those of us on this board to do some collaborative recording together. Maybe we could pick a few songs and people could volunteer for certain parts? Anyway, just a (narcotics-aided) idea. Perhaps it's too altruistic but I thought it would be worth putting out there to see if anyone had any thoughts.

Waldo, I'll have your first track for you soon--I promise. Thanks for understanding.
