Loopy
It's all me apart from the GB reggae drum beat. I noodled around on the guitar then trimmed each loop and sequenced them. The reggae rhythm guitar is more or less live. (Only one chord!) You can hear the kitchen knife at about 2.20.

Atmospheric...
Hi Graham. Nice work. This instrumental builds a nice atmosphere and holds it well for the 5 plus minutes. The recurring bass run is tasty and the guitar work is well thought out and implemented. Well done. Regards, Peter.

Thank you. I wish I had a drummer. I don't like machines much, as they make everything one - paced and plodding. Oh, and the reason why you mustn't go into the forest is the fierce chicken on the loose. You can hear it crowing at the end of the song.

Groovy
Thank you, Mr Groove. Vibes would be good too. Or a marimba. Why doesn't Apple do JamPacks anymore?

Juicy
This is really listenable and feels quite humid like a forest - can't explain why! I like the way it progresses and that guitar has a Mike Oldfield sound about it.

Me Neither
It's a working title, but as so often happens it stuck. Maybe the acoustic tangles at the beginning are metaphors for brambles or something. I don't worry about analysing these things very much. Thank you for the Oldfield ref. He's much underrated as a guitarist, I think, and any comparison is taken as a compliment.

Very nice
I like the building loops and then the reggae stuff coming in. The bass is very nice too.

Cool name
Thank you. It's a cheap SX fretless, but it plays well. You can't beat it for the price.
