    Some would say this is a slow and easy playing track, I found nothing easy about it but that's just me :)

    @Alan L Cole - Love the phrasing and the vibe. I'm getting some Knopfler's style and tone . Very nicely done.
    @G-52 - Very nicely played, Andrew. Elements of jazz in your lines and sweet clean tone.
    @ghostchord - Love the tone and very nice structured phrasing with a nice pace.
    @NWinther - Very smooth lines and such a sweet tone. Feels like you're in your element playing over this track.

    @fendrguitplayr - Very good keys lines and lead playing. Very nicely constructed track with an emotive vibe and a sweet sound.

    Slow is more challenging for me Mike because there is so much more space to fill, and how you fill it is more important. You filled your take nicely with great tone, emotive phrasing, cool chords and sweet use of whammy. Nice one!

    Really dig the e-piano Russ and the steel guitar is always sweet.

    Starcaster neck on the left, bridge on the right. It's a relaxing conversation between the two. No arguing allowed.

    @telekaster1999 - Very nice track all through I got to try baritone someday it always sounds cool.
    @guitarsophist - Very good idea for the neck and the bridge track mix with enjoyable ambient tone. Like a warm winter sun on a cold day feel.
