Description
A little Tex-Mex ditty. Folks who've heard me play it live say it's more in the Slack Key style.

If there was such a place, I'd like to take a vacation there. (Don't let Mrs. RT10 know I said that.) *wink*

Nicely done, very pleasant.

wonderful dreamy
and romantic style of song, straight from those old romantic 'cowboy meets beautiful mexican girl', type of films. This is just beautiful and I find it quite emotional....you said in the 'slack-key' style, but for me it's more in the slack-jaw style LOL I must download this, so thank you for that, regards M

Ah, so
very beautiful. Relaxed, comfortable...almost itching for a ballad lyric about lost and re-found love and a Mariachi interlude. I am sure Mariachi and interlude have never been connected like that before.:)

Thanks again John, every piece you post is gorgeous.
This one here is haunting, gentle, yet very moving in the way of the great finger style tradition, I appreciate you sharing your work with us...

I particularly
like your restraint and ability to hold back in your playing. That's a true sign of your artistry with the instrument - you don't rush the technical element - you feel it out and I love it.

really nice and relaxed....but that's because you play so effortlessly so anyone who listens is made to feel completely at ease.
