Started this when I woke today - 6 hours later, done. A little unpretentious, less-is-better-than-more original composition.

Very nice! Clean and breezy... The kind of tune you just close your eyes and let it take you away...

Very nice mix - everything right where it should be. Nice clean tone on the guitar.

Terrific listen (on my third, now...).

Very cool Dan! I haven't seen to many songs from you on the forum so this is an unexpected treat!

Would not have been pretty since I was only half dressed for the whole session --- it was very early morning.

Don't get much past you Pat. Of course you are right.

I rarely try to do something original since I work primarily with covers. This actually started as a cover of "A House is not a Home", the version by Luther Vandross, but my vocal attempts have kicked my a-s-s (at least for now). So I stripped the arrangement down to just 24 bars, simplified the chords and played over the progression. I tried to make it sparse and melodic. I need to do more of this...
