Hey I liked that.
Your voice is very pleasant to listen to . . . not forced or strained . . .
modestly controlled and pleasingly in tune.
Good job, Gary.
Welcome back.
I didn't know you to miss you . . . but if I had I would have.

sorry, I don't remember your absence. I do appreciate your song post. nice voice. you sing with feeling. you play with feeling too. on recordings I find that to much feeling on acoustic wreaks havoc on the final volume levels. I know and understand the natural habit of putting the extra emotion behind a strum coupling with the cool verse. unfortunately, in recording, it sounds too loud and takes away from the word(s). I have to temper my playing; tone it down a bit without losing the emotional moment.
happy to hear from you. well done.

love this tune and loved your cover - sounds like you were playing in C postion and when you went to the F chord you used Fmaj7 - sounded nice! Thanks for sharing,
dale

Gaz? Gaz? That you, Gaz? Hell, it HAS been a while! Where you been? Still in Wigan?

Takes a moment to recover from the shock.....

Hey, nice to hear from you - voice is nice and clear, guitar work's spot on mate. Nice cover!

So how are your own songs doing? We'll have to have a catch-up session on MSN!

:D :D :D

I'm not a big U2 fan usually, but I think I prefer this version over the original.
