Great!
One of my favourite from the gem that Wag the Dog soundtrack is.
You have all the nuances right even with a cheap guitar. I'd like to have the time to learn to play that.

It's not so hard, to me it's harder to emulate Gilmour, Marvin, etc., because of more equipment needed. So emulating Mark's sound is natural to me, because I'm lazy... Got a guitar, got an amp, start playing, that's the whole Mark's sound thing... :lol

Great work, as usual!

I always loved this score, it has so wonderful melodies.
You might get lucky, now and then

Wow, thank you! Never would expect to have an approval from the MK Strat owner.

Almost forgot to make a backing track for Stretching Out. I acknowledge that if you tweak the original recording a bit you can almost get rid of the lead guitar track and get the "original backing track", but I love to do stuff myself. Why trying to lie to yourself, when you can record your own backing track? So I don't care. I love to record this stuff anyway because it's so much fun to play. Pavel.
