Very winning melody. Like the choice of instrumentation you use here. Clean and tasty production. Might think about adding a third part or a breakdown section to add variety

Thanx John. I must humbly admit the HARDEST thing in the world for me to do is write a 'bridge' :(

Great job
Well done Scotty! This was delightful and a joy to listen to. This has a something of a European flair to it--perhaps it's the harmonica, which always reminds me of some of the French music for some reason. Keep up the good work! Michael

Interesting
that you would say a European flair ... I was thinking about Brenda Russell as I was writing this and she DID spend time in Europe! As far as the harmonica goes I was after a Stevie Wonder vibe. In any event I'm grateful for he listen and comment! Humbly, Scotty

Absolutely!
I would most certainly be interested in a collab effort! I actually did a re-edit of this today especially to leave space for a singer and I also know that this one(like MOST of mine)NEEDS a 'bridge'! I admit I know NOTHING about using DAWs so if you talk about Cubase, Sonar, ProTools or anything like that you might as well try to teach me Chinese math(lol)but I'm willing to learn! Humbly, Scotty

LOVE the stevie wonder harmonica sound. this groove is RIGHT where i live. i'm not usually into instrumental stuff, i like a story, but this is just sweet man. also really like the sentiment dude, a song for the old man is an honorable thing.
