Hey lieven - of course we can be friends. That's such an encouraging thing to say. I'm probably holding back a bit I think it's just because I'm still pretty new. I'm hoping as I get better I'll be able to sing and play with less concentration. Thanks very much for the feedback.

This song suits you dude! Vocal delivery is great, relaxed and in tune and your tone is great for the tune. Guitar is solid too, well done!

One thing you might like to try is playing the bass with your thumb and strum with the finger. Changes the tone but I quite like playing this kind of song like that!

Very well done Gareth!

Thanks for listening Justin. Much appreciated. I did try with the thumb but quit before I got it. I'll give it another whirl.
Cheers
