Peter,
Plus 1 to the kudos here - this has an irrisistable drive (I can hear the influences, but fogot them as soon as you start playing those fills!).
Strong lyrics and vocal too...one of your best.

Hendrix, both the sound and the playing. I'm thinking "Hey Joe" or "All Along the watchtower".

Fabulous stuff and definitely one of your best to date.

That put a smile on my face. Thanks a lot.

This is really catchy song right from the intro, Dire Straits of their golden era came immediately into my mind. Great lyrics with a message that fits nicely the start of a new year. And that guitar playing is awesome.

And Peter, you well know how much we love those soaring leads. We can see Clapton bending back and raising a foot smile

This is one you don't need to say a lot about...just listen again and enjoy...

Great collab you two!

Janice & Bud
You are too kind! (but I'm very pleased with the comparisons as you would know).
Thanks

It's all been said and I agree with all of it!

This your best to date IMHO.

You should be very proud of this one!

PS - If you keep playing like that you had better have a fire extinguisher near by because you are going to set that neck on fire! Super chops! Loved it!
