Sergio,

Great song! I like both versions, but am partial to the Rock/Latin take... Love the guitar playing and tone.

So good!

Sergio,

I enjoyed both versions- with a slight preference for the rock version where you get going with your signature guitar tone.
Happy, summer sounds for beach dancing!

It's really hard to tell. the rockbossa version is louder & sounds live in the room where as the classic bossa sounds muted and a recording.

Ciao Sergio,

you sure know how to write great chord sequences. Again, this song is just good which may be emphasized by the fact that I simply can't decide which version I like better... Normally I tend to the more rocking stuff, but this song works both ways.

Great job - bravo.

Cheers,

Stefan

I'm a fan of latin rock music, so I listened to the second version. Sounds good to me, nice melody, and the sax solo in the middle worked well. Nice changes also.

Both versions sound good but...
I think I prefer the laid back clean classic style version better...
Especially if I were spending the evening with some lovely lady wink
Good job on both of these!

They are both well produced and performed....really enjoyable.

It's a HARD choice! But, I guess we lean a bit toward the Latin version.

Well done!

Nice work, Sergio smile I like both versions a lot - they both showcase great songwriting and talent. I think I slightly enjoyed the rock version better, but you certainly didn't make it an easy choice.

You should be proud of this one - thanks so much for sharing!

Beautiful Latin chording and nice melody. The piano gives nice rhythmic texture. Clever idea to separate the sax solo with breaks.
Great guitar playing, as always smile I prefer the clean classic version, it made me relax better after the week at work.
