What a great melody. I also liked the backing vocals on this song.

The way the rhythm guitars strum, I could hear Peter Paul & Mary doing this.


Enjoyed my listen.

Bob, very enjoyable tune to listen to. I could also hear a 60's era folk-rock group doing this. Everything sounds great, especially the vocal. Thanks, Torrey

Very nicely done, Bob. Good group of instruments and a solid mix.

Made me picture flower children and peace signs.

Very 60's!!! (except for the email that comes in at :52 - LOL!)

Bob,

Such a good "take me back there" feeling to this.
The way you blended the guitars is really well done.
A very enjoyable song!

My thoughts exactly! This one glides and slides beautifully.
Sort of a Dylan sound to it also.
Great work.
