Fabulous stuff and definitely one of your best to date.

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

Hello, Peter & Leon

Very energetic tune!
Great Rocker!
The guitar throughout the whole song which runs from the beginning is wonderful.
The Vocals and harmonies fit perfectly this song.

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.

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!
