    Thanks, wonderful!

    Getting late here, so very quick take. Only headphones. Hopefully levels are even close where they should..

    Squier by Squier- The Wah works for me really well for your tone and a very nice version
    Mjark -Love the reverb and the tremolo. Very nice take
    fendrguitplayr-Sweet take with both guitars, Mike. I really like the blues touche at the ending.

    @Mellencaster Great homage. You nailed those seasick bends. Awesome!

    @Squier by Squier Perkele! Totally psychedelic version. Love the wah!

    @Mjark Solid tones. Solid licks. As always, your playing inspires.

    @fendrguitplayr That HUGE tones is awesome. I like the trem/vibe going on there. Sweet!

    @bigbreak It's a whole new song. I love the steel and the fiddle. Great arrangement!

    This is a tune I did not want to mess with much at all. I almost sang on it, but chickened out at the last minute and played the melody on guitar. At least I'm closer to being on pitch that way ;)

    Thank you, Mike!

    My Strat was under the bed and I was too lazy. Casino neck pickup because it has a Bigsby. Apologies to Mr. Wilsey.

    @Mellencaster - great take Mike! Why didn’t I listen to the record beforehand:)
    @Squier by Squier - enjoyable and creative, like a Dali painting; nice
    @Mjark - pretty, I liked the arpeggios and rakes, nice version of the melody
    @fendrguitplayr - cool sound, nice blues runs; dueling guitars sounding good
    @xtelesquirex - I liked the simple melody coupled with the wacky thwacky rhythm:)
    @bigbreak - Smashville cats sounding great! Love the country twang:) ...and the fiddle is extra nice
    @Peegoo - awesome; yep sounds like the record, beautiful melody
    @guitarsophist - nice country sound; sweet phrasing, nice take on the song

    Is this really B minor? I think I'm hearing Bm -> A -> E ... So A major? Well, if it wasn't before it's gonna be now ;)



    Thanks for the track!

    Your chords are correct, but it's in the key of E (mV-IV-I progression throughout).

    I think maybe ghostchord is right. It's in A. ii-I-V.
