    Thanks for the track. The baritone just seemed right for it.

    Good to hear you're back in business. Great tone, I had something like that in mind.. but was little shy with overdrive and volume pot. Your playing was beautiful, from laid back to more powerwul parts.

    PS. Recorded my take while ago, but taking a walk and putting it together bit later. Getting some rest for my ears, as learned for example from you.

    Although, listening other takes now with the earphones, so :). But they sound very good.

    It was a joy to listen to your versions from start to end. Well done everyone.

    telekaster1999 - Love those deep notes from the baritone and a sweet tone, almost a country blues feel.Love it.
    NWinther - Sweet ambient thick tone goes so well with the BT. Emotive phrasing, love the swells. You've outdone yourself on this one, Niels!
    udoering - Measured playing with emotions and a very lovely dynamic tone. A lovely version, Ullrich.
    SbS - Oh very smooth and articulated lines . Lovely version and has a sweet tone.

    @telekaster1999 : yes, the baritone guitar is right. Beautiful opening. Like your careful approach. Well executed change into overdriven sounds.
    @NWinther : a seldom heard soft Niels, yet quite recognizable. You are playing it very delicate. 2:15 ff is beautiful, as well as 3:17 ff!!
    @SbS : very good stuff! Love your delicate playing, not overdoing it at all.
    @Mellencaster : beautiful guitar sounds throughout, emotive playing, you created a great track in my opinion!

    I decided to try something a little different, using my Ibanez Talman acoustic and a pick (I usually use my fingers).

    Nice!

    I think noticed some kind of stereo effect in your track? So stole the idea a little and replaced my original with the new version. The guitar track is doubled, and panned very lighthly to the left too. Hope it's sounds more pronounced without being too dominant.

    It must be coming from the Vibe pedal although I see no stereo controls?

    Everyone has such chill tracks.

    fendrguitplayr - I thought of using a rotary effect and I'm glad you did, sound good with the mix. Very smooth lines and you're in the groove with the changes . The melody reminds me of a classic 70s style ballad. Very good version, Mike.
    Mikejazz - Love the tone, just on the edge of breakup . Emotive lines all though your take and it speaks in volumes.
    bgmacaw - The acoustic tone adds a more personal touch that I like and shows your sensitive side in your phrasing. Very nice!
    Alan L Cole - Inspirational melodic playing and a lovely version. At 3:15 the octaves were a nice addition.

    @fendrguitplayr : yes, there is definitely a stereo effect going on; but moreover, it´s a nice effect in this context. Lovely melodic playing, sounds wel thought out.
    @Mikejazz : unusual sound, but it works. You let your playing sound like rock though you stay in that c major surrounding.
    @bgmacaw : so did you use the magnetic pickup? To me it sounds like that but I wouldn´t bet on it. Anyhow, it has quite a middy sound.
    @Alan L Cole : sweet Strat sound; indeed you are using the complete fretboard :); nice.

    Yes. The Talman TCM50 has a magnetic single coil pickup that has a very mid focused tone and that's the general tonal characteristic of the guitar itself.
