great stuff. excellent build. would never expect to find a
bambu flute in a piece like this, but did, and enjoyed.

Thanks. I've had that flute for some seventeen years but never used it in any
music of mine until this track and the one I uploaded the other day, "Whisper
Evermore".

I was inspired by your "Redwing" to include the ambient Texas sounds at the
begining and end. I recorded the sound at a cabin I lived in outside of Austin
a few years ago.

Laid back tune...
for late in the day. Really liked your easy paced guitar playing. And the flute was a great addition. Gives the song a bit of wistful longing for slower paced times.

Wow
Almost makes me wanna' pack my bags and move to
Texas!

Wonderful intimate soundscape that feels simple, yet
sounds a little more complex. I was especially fond of the
introduction of the second, deeper guitar.

Nifty Guitar Work
You get some really good sounds out of that guitar. Very
tastefuly played, too. The ambient Texas sounds sound
more like a hiss at the beginning on my system, but I can
hear something at the end. Don't know if that's what you
intended. (7, 6, 7, 7)

Nifty Guitar Work
I know what you mean about the sound in the begining. It's the sound of rain
but it's a little too much like white noise. I guess I'll change that. Thanks.

Well captured
Great piece, I love the ambient textures you brought in.
There was a bit too much line noise (not sure if it was
intentional) for me, but I never liked the betales because
there recording quality was so bad. I've driven across
Texas many times, and it felt like I was there again.

Organic and alive
Excellent. Organic and warm, alive and peaceful. Such a
nice blend of textures, surprising and wonderful. (only
thing, a loop repeats during the fade out, or seems to, a
kind of gear grinding sound, which distracts from the
wonderfully biological sense of the piece.) So satisfying,
this. Thanks.

nice work
It's hard to beat a nice accoustic guitar sound. I like that
additional sounds that creep in and out. I don't normally
appreciate instrumentals, but this is a great piece.

man, some of the best acoustic guitar recordings -- pro
or am -- i've heard. seriously. so many times they sound
overprocessed and/or thin, but yours sounds rich and
inspiring. loved the track. and you know your way aroud

great
stands strongly. DonĀ“t think you could add or take
anything from it.
Very natural and for me very enjoying.
What I enjoy the most is the beat I end up feeling from
your guitar playing (underlying) and at the same time
having it slow down and speeds up melodically as it
builds.
thanks for sharing this.

I would like to buy your CD. I'm working through your list
of songs and think I'm in love. (But I fall in love daily, so...)
(But this time it may be for real.)

Excellent...
instrumental piece here. Flute could come forward in the
mix a bit. But really soothing and enjoyable. Thx fer
sharing this one.
Doadars Uncle said 4543 days ago (June 10th, 2005)
Very nice
It gives me the sense of space, open, airy.

I agree, flute could be drawn forward a bit.

Peaceful!

open road music
something ominous and adventurous about this song, i like
the mellow feeling accompanied by the slide guitar, very nice
good job
lot249 said 4413 days ago (October 18th, 2005)
very nice
I always love these warm little tunes, with just a tiny edge to them,
and that being in the title "Mosquito"

Wonderful

Thanks, Thew. I'm glad you got what I was going for.

And thanks to everyone who has stopped by to comment. Sorry for the lack of

Beautiful
Beautiful song. I love the way it lazily drifts along, gives it a great country feel. Again impressed that you do so much with so little and are able to bring such musical complexity out of subtle riffs and melodies. The slide guitar is a great touch.
