Mike,

As a Virgin Lion, my birthday is on the cusp of virgo and leo, apparently, I enjoyed that.
I like the guitar a lot.

Hi Mike,

thanks for that birthday present.
That fast guitar lead is not yours, is it?
It sounds great.

Cool jam.

The start sounds like it's chopped off a bit.

Nice playing.

I'd say that all Leo's have a birthday. But that's just me. I don't put much credence into the whole zodiac thing..... suffice it to say I do have a birthday coming up in a few more days..... right on the cusp as they say..... for what it's worth..... just one more ride around the sun.

A cool sound, Mike. Good mix. A good listen.

Wasn't sure if the guitar was you or not - nice either way -

Many thanks for your listening to this creation and the very nice comments, Josie, Alyn, Dani, Herb, Floyd (will download your CD - reading a lot of good about it), Greg, Charlie and Noel smile

Sorry for being so tardy, but life is really hectic right now. Being 57 now and staring a layoff in the face is a lot of stress... but, enough of that...

I played the lead (distorted gitfiddle), the rest is all BIAB RTs... I was so happy with this style and the way it performed, almost kinda like Island music, maybe even African - ala what Paul Simon did for a while.

The beginning may have been a bit choppy, because I did everything in one take... probably could have been a bit smoother all the way, but hey, it was one of those "GOT TO DO IT" feelings I had LOL!!!!

Thanks again, dear friends.
