    I arranged this beautiful duet for four guitars.

    There are lots of songs that I would not do cover versions. And this is one of those. But I did it anyway :eek:

    I hope you like it :)

    That's one of my top ten desert island songs too. I find it very inspirational.

    And you did a great job of playing it.

    FWIW it loses a lot of the inspiration without lyrics. Especially to people who have never heard it.

    Thank you :) For songs with a strong story and lyrics, it's hard to make an instrumental version.

    Thank you :)

    Thank you very much :)

    Awesome cover! Having loved that song for a long time, your playing makes it seem that the guitar is singing the words. Absolutely beautiful playing.

    I also appreciated that quite a lot. I love that one by Peter Gabriel. It was a great source of inspiration when I very, very badly needed one.

    Thanks. Great post. Great taste in music.

    Wow. Nice job. Even people not familiar with the song would enjoy it. I'd think people with an ear could pick out that chorus easily.

    Kate is one of my faves. I've found some incredible covers on yt. Check out Jenna?'s piano version of Be Kind To My Mistakes. While you're at it watch the fretless bass cover of the same song. Yours belongs in that realm. Again, nice work.

    Great playing and awesome one man guitar ensemble arrangement of the great tune from the 80s, thanks!! I'm crying.
    Btw, who was the guitarist for the original, David Rose? Gilmour?
    The playing for the bass part reminds me of Tony Levin though.

    Lovely instrumental of a great song, really enjoyed it and the comment about it losing inspiration without lyrics especially to people who'd never heard it gave me a laugh this morning.

    Thank you :) It's great that you found a new song.

    I do think it was Tony Levin on bass. I can't recall who was on guitar, though. That bass outro is one of my favorite earworms.
