This was great. Sort of Chris Isaac meets Tarnations (sorry, I know there are many others in the genre, I just don't know their names). Guitar tone was serene. Looking forward to more of these.

Better still. Sounds like Blues Brothers Band meeting up with The Cure, Alan Parsons Project with Chris Isaak on lead guitar and David Lynch, Quentin Tarantino and The Coen Brothers producing. Great smiley

GREAT sounds and perfomance.! Your take on this classic and what you've done with it adds to that great tradition starting with Vaughn Monroe's original in 1949 and Johnny Cash's big hit thirty years later. Monroe was a maverick of pop music during an era of real blandness. And of course, so was Cash in the world of country. They would both love your version, especially the ethereal effects in the background.

Thanks for going to my latest tune so I can have the prevledge of hearing this terrific tune.
Love it. This is a feast of musical pleasure! smiley
Love everything about it. You hit a musical cord with me cause one of my heart felt influences where the Ventures. There is still a very special place in my heart for them and you really re-kindled the special feeling that got me to pick up the guitar in the first place.
What a great effect that chorus, drone vocal synth sound I think in the beginning and radiates throughout the tune. The great guitar theme throughout. Wowser! Love how you change keys smiley smiley
Thanks so much. I really like this tune. Very special!

I'm taking one star off to push you to get a little less controlled.

But twang, baby, tang. I'm mainly (only) a guitarist (who unfortunately tries to sing so I love to see the steel strings up front. Also, I have issues with drum loops becaues it's impossible to get call-and-response dynamics, but you've done a great job making them fit in.

Question: I've yet to put keyboard loops into anything... possibly a self-imposed handicap in light of your well-done use of them here -- or are they real? If they ARE loops, can you e-me and let me know how you controlled the key they play in? (I have GB1 - do I need GB2?)

I'm gonna "favorite" you and give hte back catalog some play.

thoughts from the bull...

this one got me right from the start. i'm a big old west fan, and this one takes me right into that mind set, obviously. but it's such a fresh spin on the tired sound we've all heard since the Spaghetti westerns and such.

this was fun and i just wish i had a horse! but that would be silly, a bull on a horse. really.

hehe... thanks for the great tune! looking forward to more!

Wow, I just had a flashback to childhood. Very sweet, fond memories of "Ghostwriters". My dad used to play this for me when I was really young. I have visions of him teaching it to me on piano and we'd play it in a duet. Some of my best memories of my dad, actually. I just love this and I'm so glad I stumbled across this gem. Nice playing and adding strings/choral/percussion!

KNOCK ME OUT!!! I just discovered your music and IT'S MY MUSIC TOO! My high school band played this - except you play it way better! (Wish I could find my premiere reverb! Always thought that getting the echoplex ...plex...plex would make me sound like the astronauts!) But what's so wonderful about this track is how it's not just the lead guitar (which sounds perfect! better than the Ventures!) but the textures in the background as well. GOnna go dip into the rest of the songs. Great stuff... Les
