Slap Happy(Slide)

Description
This is a little different than the last bunch.
Sometimes classical and romantic folk can lack the happy-go- lucky sounds that good time folk country can. So here is something that I hope can make you smile a little bit if your down or in a melancholy mood.

Excellent
I love the slide playing.
Only suggestion I have is possibly bringing out more of
the bass in the mix.

Thanks, I did make the base with more treble, at first it was too mushy.
But thanks very much for the critique, I used a synth Jazz Upright in GB2.
Your comments really help me become a better mixer.

Thanks again

Good stuff. Excellent slide and picking. I agree with
Mungo, you might want to bring the bass up some.

As usual excellent playing. You're right this was fun! I
thought I heard a banjo in the background at times but I
guess that was just your fingerpicked guitar and my
imagination. As good as you play slide have you ever
thought about trying a dobro? And you know with just a
little adjustment you could hook up with one of your
singers and turn this into a vocal piece also. And I too
have been struggling with playing the string bass with a
keyboard. I think I hit it best with my revised song "Do
You Know Who She Is". See what you think about that
sound.

Thanks for the post.

Ya, but it is raining over were I live (near San Francisco). The country is so
much more fun when you can prance around in the sunshine:)

Nice little slide tune...

I agree this could have some lyrics put to it and turn out to be a fun little country song, maybe one even on the somewhat funny side as your guitar work has a playful feel to it. Made me smile...
