Hi all, after much badgering (sorry, encouraging!) from Paul, I'm sharing the very first bars of Tennessee whiskey by Chris Stapleton. This opening is from the Ultimate guitar version, but I think I'd like to have a crack at the second arrangement as a long term project.

Congrats on your first multi-track recording! It does sound like something's interfering with the rhythm there so I've given it a quick run-through along with Drummer's Pulse (on voice setting) counting out the beat: https://soundcloud.com/paul-swanson-1/tennessee-whiskey-intro Hearing the metronome counting along with things should help clarify (his 1 trip let 2 trip let ... corresponds exactly to my 1 2 3 2 2 3 ...) and you've still got time for a re-take before Thursday night!
Spent more time on the tech than the playing this week ... LOL! GarageBand actually worked ok, I was just trying to work out how best to post it here. Best I can do I think is provide a Dropbox link to the two parts of Tennessee Whiskey I have recorded and exported as an MP3.
My reflections on hearing it: Sounds hesitant and lacks some commitment. Timing off a bit in places. Any and all feedback welcome.
Welcome to the forum Glenn! You qualify for an illustrious "Founder Member" badge! Sounds good and I think your foot tap is pretty much what we looked at tonight albeit slightly out of time. Here's the representative loop we examined:
And here are the full 4 bars set up to loop nicely (note the "lead-in" you hear first on the record is at the end of these 4 bars ready to land on the One beat of the first line). I've omitted here a few more tiny embellishments to match the recording (which won't be too hard to add in) but this should let you strengthen the count so that you can play in time with a metronome/backing.
A recording of you playing along with your own swing rhythm strum-through of the chords would make a great next target! I mentioned I'd seen that chord sequence somewhere before. Try playing the riff along with this one too!
