Hi there Corey. I'm really enjoying so many of your tunes. Here's a go at Sitting on Top of the World - looking forward to your comments.

Greetings Jay. Your tempo here is nice and steady. I can recommend that you try muting your bass strings a little with the heel of your wrist instead of letting all the strings ring out... experiment with what sounds good. Try playing with a quieter volume on the guitar and your voice won't have to work as hard to be heard. Also listen closely to the last riff that finishes the phrase. It sounds like you are ending it on a wrong note (It should end on the 'one'). Keep at it and thanks for posting.

Corey - I just found sonic junction this past week. Started working on High Fever.

Thanks for doing this. Pretty awesome.

I just wish I had this back in college(1998-ish) when I was REALLY struggling to figure out what you were doing:)
