I just realized I misread who was playing. I thought this was Kavin but realized this is an assortment of artists. Kirk apologies and as I said but indicated Kavin, but now for you, Gorgeous and Bachlike.

Beautiful guitar playing, but i kept waiting to hear lyrics!

Keith Landry said

Wow, sometimes an instrument can express so much more than words. This is incredible, and I am very envious of your immense talent with the instrument that I’m trying like hell to come to understand. Ah well… The conversations you have with your six strings are the kind that I can only hope to have in time.

Guest said

I meant to just come here, thank you for noticing me, and let you know that I sorted out the uploading issue…

I figured I’d give one of your songs a listen… What a great solo!

I opened the menu to comment; the “about” opened first… You can really write for a mood.

Goodness… very nice bright gitz. Makes me want to pick one up and play along. Such a welcoming tune. Wow… I’m not usually much for single instrument tracks. You’ve got so much expression in that guitar. Wait a sec… do I hear breaths? I’m sure you wanted that in the mix, right? Neat. The human feel is great!

Wyatt Grayson said

I listened to a couple pieces and I’ll certainly listen again. Nice work, great sound.

mmi said

Very beautiful. I won’t insult you with the comparisons to other players. I’ll just say that you’re up there with them.
