Round & Bouncy & Rough (Oh My!)

Short acoustic guitar instrumental I came up with last night. Recorded into my phone in two parts: main part & random notes added part (for spice).

This is light and effortless-sounding. Great rhythm, a little Latin vibe but only enough. Dancing evening breezes, flashing fireflies. A wonderful little vignette.

Thanks! Wish I could say it was effortless. My sore fingers might argue about that.

This is sweet but may I make a tedious technical point? I can't define between the two parts so it sounds a bit jumbled. There's lots of ways to get round this - you could pan them slightly to each side, you could capo your guitar for one of them and play the chords in different places on the neck (capoed guitar sound is remarkably different to open) or you could put a filter on the non-main part.

But you might like it exactly how it is, so please feel free to ignore my personal taste :)

Thanks, greenish. This was just a quick demo to get it out of my head so I could move on, but I'll definitely keep your suggestions in mind if I do a real version.
