It's in A. The chords are A-F#m7-D-E (x2) then Bm7-C#m7-D-F#m7, Bm7-C#m7-D-E. The first progression sounds a bit like "Runaround Sue," but slower, and the second is a bit like the Byrds "Why?" but I wasn't consciously thinking of those when I assembled it. In addition to the cajon there is a bass, my Casino on rhythm, and a bit of synth.



Have fun!

Perfect tone! The melody sounds like a Roy Orbison song or maybe a synthesis of a couple of such songs nicely entwined. Really nice relaxed vibe. I quite enjoyed it!

Thanks. I think it’s too compressed but the volume was all over the place.

I've known @Gytaurust for years. but I didn't know that he could actually play harmonica. I have verified with him that that is a real A harp mixed in with all the guitar parts and the synth strings and stuff.

I added a lead with my Tele. This way longer than the track I posted. I could have cut it and faded out, but at the end I continue after the percussion ends and I kind of like that.
