This is just what I needed to chill out on this hot and humid day.

I loved the rhythm section you have going on in the background! The sax was great.

What was that initial lead instrument?

That last high lead I thought was a little harsh and loud for this song. That is only my opinion and others man not agree.

MarioD,

Thanks for listening and I really appreciate the comments. The lead instrument is clarinet playing the melody. I opted to play the return of the bridge and chorus an octave higher. After hearing it for a couple of weeks now that was probably a bad decision. I wanted to play the lead melody on flute but my chops are not quite in shape for that right now. I will probably re-record the clarinet down an octave and leave it in the more mellow range of the clarinet.

Not hot here in the Highlands of Scotland, but a very enjoyable recording nonetheless. Love the minor key first part

Thank you Graham. I always like the interplay of minor to major and vice versa. I am glad you enjoyed it even if it is cool in the Scottish Highlands. Wish it was like that here! :-)
