Like a walk in the park man, just strollin' along... Very nice post man, nice picking and the singing was good too. I know there are a couple tricky verses where the words are sort of sycopied, but kept it clean. Now you gotta give us another one.

Hmm... I might have to follow suit and get one strung as a low G....

Anyhow... great job with this one... good singing... good picking... all of it fell together quite nicely.

I posted a comment on there too, but i really found it funny for some reason how you got straight to the point like no bullshit lets do this! right at the start.

I love your version of it though, its relaxing and you sound great!

cheers!
