    @Alan L Cole : after stylistic variations with the last tracks, I love to hear the "old Alan" again. The dynamics of your playing reflect the dynamics of the track very well.
    @bgmacaw : that was a very powerful track, guitar sound has something raw, which supports the power. Your melodies have a vocal quality.
    @simoncroft : your clean guitar sounds like a pedal steel - beautiful! I´s well contrasted by the heavy distorted guitar on the choruses.

    Leaving the comfort zone is a good thing. You did well.

    -Your bag is pretty deep. I like the contrast between tones too.

    Nice track @Mellencaster! Thanks for sharing.

    I put a four-way switch and a set of BYO Twister pickups in my Monoprice tele recently, so this was a chance to record something in the forth position. Also, I played a G major harmonica using a three note draw sequence (had to get an F# note from somewhere). And of course some garden footage:

    MrClint Nice take MrClint, that harmonica really fills in well. I honestly thought of Neil Young .

    Thanks @Mellencaster. High praise indeed, and with three draw notes on one breath! I so wanted a harmonica part for this track and a G Major harp was the best I could do with what I had. I appreciate the listen and the kind comment.

    @MrClint : I totally agree with Mike. An alltogether good track; the harmonica comes unexspected, but fits in very well.

    - Awesome harmonica. Great idea. Beautiful lemon blossoms too!

    - Your rehabilitation sounds like it's going well!

    @Mellencaster, great idea to lead off with some harmonics. Nice throaty lead tone through out. The second guitar track adds a lot of depth to the overall presentation. This might be one of your best tracks yet!

    @udoering, nice melodic playing through out as usual. Had a Spanish flare at times on the upswing. Well done.

    @Mjark, nice mix! Tone was really crisp. I like how you keep things on the mellow side.

    Very cool intro with the overtones followed by some rockin' lines. Nice!
