As fresh as possible, in a slightly different mix than my previous upload, to give some more presence to the tune. The rhythm track was under electronic dust somewhere on my drive. I had recorded it without bothering to turn off the radio, so it is heard at the quietest moments. I've added a melody and a solo, as well as some percussion, but it's still a very tiny addition. Flaws included.

Ha, yea, I could hear the radio this time-I'm playing it more loudly so I can actually hear some of the guitar nuances.

I really like where you're going with you're music. I may just be me, but it seems like you're refining your process and it shows.

thanks sns - you're very supportive and that's cool.
Well I tried to make this one sound a little different from my other tunes, in spite of the fact that it's a 100 per cent acoustic guitar tune. I've tried to build a little composition with a few voices. First time I do it and there are some clashes in the first part of the recording. But as usual, I didn't want to polish a solo or a single voice and record numerous takes.. I'd rather let in what's spontaneous. Thanks again.

Hey, that's funny that you mention the "clashes". I had to listen really carefully to that part. The voices just briefly go to other places and then meet again. It reminds of some bits that I've heard in Flamenco.

You make me intensely guitar-jealous, nicolin. I'm really enjoying this stuff.

You shouldn't be that jealous cortex - there's no reason to be. Actually you can hear me taking my pick on the table (near the mic) at 1:29 because I'm not satisfied with my finger playing.
