Let it be what it wants to be, Scott. This is a really pretty piece. I get little hints of Hawaii in the lead which gives a great flair to the sweetly laid-back backing band. I did enjoy it.

Hi Scott,

I enjoyed listening to this a lot.

Your playing mesmerised me. I love how you've taken a straight feel but somehow you've managed to create a slight hint of swing. That really appealed to me and I still trying to work out how you did it! I bet your brother's granddaughter likes it!

Nice work!

All the best,
Noel

There seems to me a peaceful elation in the melody. Very well done.

On my speakers the bass guitar was sort of buried. And the Left and right channels felt bright in a way that distracted my attention away from your beautiful melody. But it might simply be my speakers.

Much enjoyed!

Hi Scott,

I think Elena will get married by the time you have lyrics on this beatiful melody with the impressing leadguitar!
But I believe (as a singer) you need vocals in it. If only for Elena!

At the beginning of may I will become a grandpa too, for the first time! A girl. So, I have to make a song on that event too, but I will tell her later I had to see her grow up, so I could make a very nice song. and that this took me some years. There I will point at you; hear the result, it was worth waiting, I then say to her.

But make lyrics and let Robert sing.
And don't wait till my grandchild gets married...

Hans

Scott,
A lovely melody you`re playing,like a musical balloon floating happy hopes for the young lass(almost the same age as my youngest).
Its just fine as is, though you never know about that lyric guy!

Thanks Dave for checking out the song. With covid have been having more time to go back and revisit my older songs and snippets. Glad you liked it.

Thanks T for checking out the song. I sometime wonder where my sounds and songs come from. Must be old memories of things that I have heard in the past.

We can see her twirling around making soap bubbles!

The melody and guitar chops are most lovely and the mix sounds good on our monitors.

Glad you went back to it!

Thanks for finishing this. I would hate to think we wouldn't have gotten to ever hear this. Really nice song that fits a really great feeling mood. Thanks for sharing.

Pretty and light tune. Good use of synths in combination with RTs and your guitar. Yes, time for lyrics smile

Beautiful melody well played, I think it would work with lyrics and vocals also. Nice lush instrumentation and airy mix, well matured during the years.

Scott,

It's true that there are many collaborations with Robert these days, but when I listen to your instrumental work for the first time in a while, I'm familiar with it.
The deeply echoed Hank Marvin-like guitar sound is always nice to listen to.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Well played and lovely.
This has the signature Scott reverb/delay and phrasing.
