This is my first ever video for YouTube.

RealTracks in style: ~598:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Bluegrass Doc Ev 100
RealTracks in song: 1765:Guitar, High-Strung Acoustic, Fingerpicking Pop16ths Ev16 085
RealTracks in song: ~~599:Mandolin, Rhythm Bluegrass Doc Ev 100
RealTracks in song: ~820:Mandolin Soloist Bluegrass Ev 100
RealTracks in song: ~689:Organ, B3, Background Pop Ev 085

Thanks for listening.

Hi John,

I love the upbeat, feel-good groove you've got happening here. "Keep on Running" was a pleasure to listen to. Early on in the song, I couldn't stop myself thinking, "This is an extremely well crafted song - lyrics, music, arrangement, mix, performance." The slide-show video was the icing on the metaphorical cake.

I'm already looking forward to your next one!

All the best,
Noel

Great! I was half expecting something on the maudlin side and it was a surprise to discover how upbeat the tune is. Nice lyrics, vocal and mix. Thanks for posting this. And the vid is great. Love the imagery and the B&W production.

John,

Have to agree with Noel when he says:
"This is an extremely well crafted song - lyrics, music, arrangement, mix, performance."

Nicely done. Nice job on the video. And what a great gesture. I commend you.
