Hey there Chet, playing your song, "Kites In The County" again.........this song is absolutely mesmerizing!! Love the feel of the music and your voice is Over-The Moon Terrific!!!
Just a thought.....on your song, I hear a possible Soft Slide guitar or maybe a Harmonica?? You play incredible Harmonica, so that would be easy to do! Just a thought Sir, don't mean to tell you how to produce your music.....there just seems like there are many open sections in your composition, where an additional instrument would add to the total composition??
Stay Safe & wear a Mask!!
