    You lot have made this hard this month… excellent tracks all round.

    my votes…

    5pts to @Bezzer - dude, this is possibly one of the best entries we’ve ever had IMO… brilliant…

    3pts to @IMC1980 - stunning vocals fella, really nice interpretation, genuinely brought a tear to my eye when I got all emotional last week!…

    1pt to @Dainty - Molly on fine form and sublime guitarisms…


    @stratman3142 absolutely loved your track, the guitar tone was gorgeous and the slide playing cracking… I blame bezzer and his late entry for bumping you off :)

    I will go with;

    5 points @poopot - loved this take on the song, moody and powerful, great guitar parts and vocals as well!

    3 points @stratman3142 - perfect instrumental, I always love hearing slide guitar done well because I am not very good at it. Epic solo section as well.

    1 points @Bezzer - I think may have heard this song before, but had to go and listen to the original and check. Still not sure if I have but I liked your heavy take on it! Also, awesome video; if anyone hasn't seen it yet, check it out: https://www.thefretboard.co.uk/discussion/209628/a-little-video#latest

    5 pts - @poopot ;;;;;; Damn man, straight from the top drawer - a perfect tempo for this song. 
    3 pts - @Bezzer Another cracker - an amazing cover of one of my favourite tunes. 
    1 pt @Dainty ;;Could be any of the others, but I chose this as I'm a hendrix fiend! Interesting take on a classic!

    A strong round this one! All fantastic in their own way, and so varied!

    5 points - @poopot ... this was a no brainer for me; it sounds amazing, brilliant vocals, really evocative guitar. Whole vibe took me back to the early ninties Alt Rock / Neo Psych I was drinking in at the time.  Just ace.

    3 points - @IMC1980 ... again, this just did something to me. I think I'm a bit emotional lately so it's not difficult to hit certain triggers, but didn't "hit it" you smashed it with a f***ing lump hammer!  I can't critique it, I just love it. 

    1 point - @Dainty ... this is a sound one, that lead guitar sound just enveloped my ears and whispered really dirty things in them. It's got the vibe of Santana does Hendrix and the vocals are so good.

    @stratman3142 it was so close, you're track was absolutely cracking as well. I think I'm just atuned more to vocal tracks today and it's as simple as that.  The slide playing was fab.

    Oh and @IMC1980, thank you for the video plug!

    5 points @Bezzer - really enjoyable re-think of a synth-pop classic. And a video too!
    3 points @poopot - reminded me of Richard Hawley's "Standing at the Sky's Edge", which is a Good Thing.
    1 point @stratman3142 - tightly arranged and played, very slick.

    At time of typing, haven't currently got the time to listen to all of the tracks, but I bloody love Bezzer's Are Friends Electric? cover.

    If you must have sex with a frog, wear a condom. If you want the frog to have fun, rib it.
