    I thought this was really nice CC. I like the waltz rhythm and the also the rolling melody.

    A lovely tune, and well arranged and played, Christian. You get a different sound now with the steel-strung guitar and it suits the country flavour of this tune.

    Great plodding country tune, Christian, I like the steady, nostalgic, deliberate rhythm.

    What more could you add? Well, you added a nice recording that shows a lot of respect for the music and is very cleanly played to your usual standard. I'm sure the music is pleased to be played like that.

    Ditto all comments. I also admire your restraint in going from one note to the next.
