Hi Ghostgum,

Pleasant composition. I like the rhythm and the sequence of chords. The lead guitar well played and the appearance of the harmonica has all its charm. Well done

Kindly regard

That is a nice blend of RT's and your performances.

Sounds like a group of folks who've been sitting in together for a while.

Great playing and we much liked the mix. Acoustic mixes can be a challenge ... this is a good one!

Outstanding!

One of the best instrumentals on the forums.

Excellently played on all instruments. Super backing tracks.

This could have been the theme song of one of those spaghetti westerns!

Thanks for your comments, Mario. There's something about these BIAB tracks that is inspirational. It make the process of creating melodies, counter-melodies, harmonies and incidental phrases so much easier than simply using midi.
