Great job!  Love songs that make great sing-alongs.

You've got a really suitable bounce-along groove on your strumming.
On songs like this - with such a story-telling narrative - it brings them to life.
Congrats.
Really good job.

Another solid entry here Boro!

Well recorded, played and sung. One thing on the rhythm is when you play the bass note on the 1 it's worth trying to bring it out a bit - sometimes here the '1' is a bit quiet compared with the strums and it's almost reggae (where they rarely play on 1!). Probably not helped by listening on my laptop speakers where there's less bass, but woth bearing in mind.

Liked the rhythm breakdown in the bridge bit too.

Well done :)
