    @teletimetx Always nice to have you play here Bill! How should I say this ,your mixing skills may not be up to studio quality :) but your guitar playing is most definitely is and entertaining which really is the important part .
    Nice contrast between the both guitars ,the call and response theme was a good concept for this track and the phrasing was right on par for this track.
    @Mjark I could not said it better than Bill-I always enjoy your playing. Good melodic phrases and passages, some with an almost Dicky Betts-ian feel

    @Alan L Cole – As expected, your intense tone and playing serves you well. Pretty good phrasing. You used your rests well.

    @JCL50 – Somewhat softer than I expected to hear. Lovely lines.

    @estreet – Great stuff as always.

    @Mellencaster – You hit it dead center.

    @udoering – great arranging. I liked the slide idea even though it was a bit “pitchy”. I got a Jeff Lynne vibe from your track.

    @NWinther – Another great take, it surely must have been a beautiful day.

    @teletimetx – You also used the two tone idea very well.

    I agree that your approach was similar to Ullrich's with some nice guitar technique and tone Bill. The levels took away a little bit for me but overall very nice nonetheless!

    Nice guitar tone and some sweet melodic licks Mark! I too was unfamiliar with this as being a Zappa piece. Has a "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" vibe for me. Liked your tone here from you either way.

    @Mjark : a good track! No noodling but kind of structured playing.
    I quoted that because "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was exactly I was thinking of when hearing your track!

    To answer the Zappa question:
