    @fendrguitplayr : your guitar sound has a banjo-like quality, especially at the beginning. Very nice bridge!
    @Mjark : lovely pedal steel like sound and playing. When the bt gets loud, your guitar is a little low (had similar problems, my guitar is a little too loud sometimes, would have needed a more sophisticated mixing with different levels).
    @estreet : beautiful tone and good playing. Nice bendings and double stops. That deep register sounds especially good.
    @Alan L Cole : guitar sound and tone choice are not typical country, but that´s no criticism; you really have developed your very own playing style.
    @knh555 : I had tried a second guitar track, but cancelled it again; it would have needed more time and effort to make it work. Your version works, I think, maybe the guitar on the left could have needed a little less volume. Nice (slide) playing throughout.
    @guitarsophist : straight country sound and playing.
    @Mellencaster : nice playing and recording, Mike. The reverb sounds a little too heavy to me; maybe lowering the bass end of the reverb is sufficient.
    @bgmacaw : your tone choice leaves the pure country territory, which again is no criticism. It gives the track a special vibe.
    @G-52 : well this is your home territory! Lovely country playing with everything it needs.

    @fendrguitplayr - I enjoyed the bends, double stops and the country sound
    @Mjark - nice pedal steel vibe; well done over the bridge also
    @estreet - pretty melody; tasteful track, and interesting country riffs including the rakes @ 40 sec.
    @Alan L Cole - nice jazzy take, lots of expression with hint of twang
    @knh555 - I liked the melody over the rhythmic riffs
    @Mellencaster - beautiful country tone and phrasing; I enjoyed the rhythm of the acoustic guitar also
    @bgmacaw - nice singing melody; I especially liked the transition through the bridge
    @udoering - nice bends in the intro, followed by a pretty country-rock mix; nice phrasing throughout

    Very nice critiques, you have a good ear. Looking forward to your ear on my little Jewel,

    You turned a sad or somber backer into an enjoyable song.

    I was looking forward to your take, being in your wheelhouse, and you played it well. Nice!

    Solid clean bends with good phrasing and nice tone with cool volume swells at end. Nice!

    Thank you. I always struggle with balancing levels, particularly because it sounds different each place I play it, not to mention SoundCloud does its own processing.

    @guitarsophist - nice phrasing throughout and I heard some nice double-stops; beautiful tone
    @ASATKat - I enjoyed the singing melody you chose. Some nice bends also.

    Cool palm muting intro. I never heard this song, but your playing sounds fine and nice bridge riffage!

    Very nice playing and tone, a bit shy on the volume. But seriously the playing was very purty =)

    That is a very pedal steel tone, way cool, nice 6ths, nicely played changes, good job.

    Bari with a slight tremolo wobble, awesome, I dug your dominant approach on the IV7 and V7, a cool mix of major pent (which too me, infers maj7) and the dominant.

    Nice arps, all throughout, good theme development in the 2 minutes you had lol. Tone was fine to me, maybe a bit more verb?

    Lap steel and guitar interplay, reminds me of Frisell and Greg Leisz, nice
