Apparently easy and that’s its difficulty . The arrangement goes well with the nostalgia that comes from PM’s voice. Relaxation.

thinking back on 100’s of hours spent with studio sidemen trying to cobble together not only a track, but an ear-catching sound. i can honestly say nobody’s ever done as good a job on this song as you have here. i thank you very much. p

That’s a great compliment and much appreciated.

I originally had banjos and dobros in the mix but felt the simple repetition of the melody allowed the beauty of the lyrics and delivery to shine through.

Thanks for making such wonderful music available.

Brilliant arrangement- I did find myself wishing to hear what an all-live session recording would sound like, but please take that as a compliment; you’ve really captured such a nice balance of warmth and brittleness with this.

Great ! Reminds me of early Ry Cooder albums like Chicken Skin Music. Good work.

I heard his original vocals and this slides right into Panu’s vibe. Excellent.

Nice. Is there any style you can’t pull off?

Rhetorical Question. Please don’t answer that. ; )
