Yesss, like it, CC. Gutsy, soulful, romantic - both the accompaniment and Panu’s voice. Really enjoyed listening (and I’m glad you and Mrs C like your new nickname!). xxxx

I’m seriously considering of changing my ccMixter name to Cheeky Chew… :)

hey, Ivan, my Singaporean rock star brotha… this is just, really, outstanding. love the folky coffee-house feel, the slight overdrive in the the 3rd guitar part, and the way you chopped the original demo to suit your outro. you’re a good man, Ivan. thanks very much.

thanks, friend panu. glad you picked up on the coffee-house feel (smoke-free, I must add, heh). i wanted that “live” atmosphere with a bit of the small cozy reverb. in my mind, i was sitting near the edge of the performance platform away from the spotlight. Soft white spot of light in the centre, empty chair waiting. You stride in with your acoustic gutiar. Shifting the chair a bit, you plant yourself down. In the half shadow, I start my opening guitar riff. You strum your chunky bronze strings. You sing. And fill the coffee-house with mellow. Song ends but the music doesn’t fade away.

p.p.s., you nailed the chord chart just right! i leave a lot of strings open when i play, but i see you weren’t deceived. all the best, p.

Heh, I thought you deliberately placed “musical false leads” to make the remix more challenging. Was tempted to email you to ask for the chords but figured I could use the pratice. I think I know how “Grasshopper” felt, lol.

Oh yes, this is sheer bliss from start to the last chord. Very sensitive and delicate treatment of Panu’s voice and lyric.

wow. Coming from you, that’s very very flattering. Thank you! BTW, I’m that much more tempted to getting a Strat, heh.

Ahh now - this is delightful. Lovely musical choices and terrific production - clean and simple and very well built-up.

Love it. Great great track.

Naah. It could use precisely nothing more. Honestly. This is perfect just the way it is.

Hi Ivan, are you sure this is soft rock ? where i come from soft rock is a pejorative term. so this cant be soft rock.

I’m diggin’ the Santana-esque guitar and “panumoonish” … certainly attributing a disctictly recognizable style!

Mmm… it does sound like Santana, doesn’t it? Thanks for the comment ;)
