Hi Fitzy,

Such a heartfelt tribute. I felt it captured the "tears in Heaven" vibe. Very touching.

Very beautiful tribute as others have said. I really like the sparse arrangement, and strings worked perfectly. Very sweet and touching. Take care. Greg

Hi Fitzy,

A beautiful song arranged very tastefully and presented with sincerity. I don't think tributes get any better than this. It was my pleasure to listen.

Best wishes,
Noel

Hi Fitzy,

This is a beautiful and moving song. I love the lyrics and the melody. It has a really nice contemporary vibe to it. The arrangement is a perfect fit and the mix sounds great here.

Also I like your voice a lot. You have a very commercial tone and style.

Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Hi Fitzy,

Again, beautiful song.
I was wondering... which real tracks did you use?
Especially the fingerpicking guitars.

Regards,
Rob

Hi Rob,

the main guitar is 2051, a Brent Mason country acoustic. Then later 1582 and 1765 come in, one strumming the other finger picking.
