Matek: Not sure I feel comfortable yet, but I am glad it sounds comfortable to you.

I think the main difference is in the earlier version my focus was on getting through the song without making mistakes while the new one I am at least trying to focus more on the performance and playing is more on auto-pilot. 


There you go my friend. You are getting more comfortable :)

Thanks Matek! I think you are right. I have noticed when I practice easy songs that I have now started to focus more on how to improve the way they sound, instead of focusing on playing the right chords and to get the pick angle right etc.. Open chords and eight note strumming is starting to get, well not easy yet, but not that friggin hard anymore. Left foot is tapping the beat also without even thinking about it. About 5 hours of practice per week almost every week for 2 years and I am starting to feel that I can say that I can play the guitar.  Good feeling!

This is great, Johan. Nice relaxed strumming pattern, interesting chords and chord progression, and you certainly have the feel for the song. I like it, a lot.

Wow, Johan, that was great.  You sounded very confident in your playing and singing and it shows through.
Of all I've heard you post, I think this one tops the list.  Nice job.

Nicely done and a very clean recording which leaves you exposed in the singing and playing.
You say you've played it a lot and it's on auto-pilot.
That's not a negative thing in my view.
Guitaring eventually gets that way after time and practice.
Some things are just there immediately in reach and that fact allows you to focus on the delivery rather than the worry of 'what chord next' ... 'what's the strumming' etc.
Well done.

Johan,
This sounds great! You've owned this song and played it in your own style. I have no suggestions for improvement here, just keep on doing what you're doing.

I really enjoyed this!  This was one of my favs from the '90s -- I think you put your own touch on it with the laid-back feel.  The well-played guitar (natural room reverb from how you recorded) and vocal just made it relaxing and enjoyable.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Richard, Neil and AdamT. Nice to hear that it sounds like my own style and laid-back feel. Thats what I want to achieve. This was the first song I learned to play and still play it at least once a week.

Thanks Justin! We could call it swanc (swedish accent + manc accent). The accent is not intentional but I guess it comes from listening to Oasis a lot.
