    Late again, it's been a hectic week. My humble take on this cool track! Thanks Mike.

    This weekend I was setting up a new computer with Manjaro Linux. I recorded this to test the recording ability of the new machine. I used my Ovation direct into a Mackie Onyx 2X2 Performer interface. It has a little reverb and compression, but nothing else. It is pretty much easy listening.

    @bullfrogblues : like Mike said, nice melody and playing.
    @guitarsophist : easy listening, yes, but beautifully played! Very enjoyable.

    Mjark - Sweet tone, Mark. Some parts do disappear in the mix but what is auditable is lovely and smooth playing, the ending cuts off quicker than I would have expected.
    miguelalmeida - Very intimate playing, something you would hear from a lounge guitarist.Very good, Miguel.

    Recorded this on the weekend but ran into some technical issues uploading it and didn't get back to it until today:


    Thanks for the track. This reminded me of something that could be a Lionel Richie or Stevie Wonder song. Didn't really get a "Jazz" feel. Didn't really lead me anywhere in terms of melody though.

    @Mjark : I don´t think it doesn´t fit. You played a beautiful delicate rythm guitar with occasional melody lines. Surprising end, though.
    @miguelalmeida : a very tender version; the few notes that don´t fit so well do not diminuish it´s quality.
    @ghostchord : you thought of a nice melody, I dig that. You might play (not: record) that again and try to play it more expressive, i.e. enhance your phrasing. I hope you receive this how it is meant, an encouragement.

    Thank you guys
    @Mellencaster , you’re very kind. Lounge guitarist sounds like something I could do all night, and day
    @udoering , thank you! You can think of the out of place notes as artistic freedom ;)
