I can relate to this as live ear the water - such a quality recording and a great listen.
I want to listen again to that lead guitar ... nice and controlled - spot on
Thanks Gary

Thank you AvMo. Relaxing is certainly what was on my mind when I put this together. The calming mood of the song was strongly inspired by Eric Johnson's "East Wes".

Heard this one on the Mixposure radio recently. Beautiful track Gary. It really transports the listener. Music to relax by. Beautiful fluid playing. Congrats.

Much thanks DCD and Wricky! I always appreciate comments and feedback!
03/05/17 09:49:20AM @wricky:
excellent work here, and yes, headphones are great with this! The touch harmonics, crisp acoustic rythyms,bass,drums and tune specific soloing put me in a Steve Morse Band frame of mind.

Enjoyable instrumentation and song movement. This music "sways" in a way that fits the cover photo you chose perfectly. You have that "artistic touch".

Thanks MTW! I heard some pretty cool progressive sounds over at your page as well!

What an aptly named tune! Makes me wish I had a huge surround sound type system and could just lay in the middle, close my eyes and drift off on that canoe =)

Thanks sir Loopmaster! I had lots of fun making this track and it spent much more time on the shelf than it did actually getting worked on lol!

Excellent! It's great to hear this kind of clear guitar sound and production that has lot of air and melody. You know how to write good instrumental music, song structure has good flow and arrangement it keep up tension. Relaxing music, beautiful!

I listened to all your tracks. I liked Island Breeze the most because of it's openness. Nice and airy. I also enjoy you playing and say little about the mixing. Your mixes clean it makes my tracks sound like you have cotton in your ears your listening from the other room with the doors closed Bummers. You and Farrell both have very good tunes with studio "Store bought" quality sound. :)

Personally I try to do everything wrong that I can when in front of a DAW. Maybe that's my style. :(

Thanks again Mr. Shane and my picture here was one I took at Coronado Island on one of my first daytime trips there recently. In fact, going there inadvertently inspired me to pull this piece back off the shelf and begin working on it again to its completion. Up until then, only the repetitious intro riff and the first 2 minutes of backing tracks were in place. It sat like that for a few years until a couple of months ago...

by the way , trivial , but, i used to live near San Diego,   i lived in Vista. I used to go over to Oceanside and spend time on the beach enjoying all the time.

11/07/16 04:17:49PM @shane:

i love the interplay of the Bass in this.  frankly love all aspects . genius composition to my ears. your lead guitar style is seriously fine. To be specific, the tone and texture of sound  involving mild distortion and harmonic feedback, and also your phrasing, and the places that your riff sequences go is excellent .  splendid riffs in this lead guitar episodes in the overall track.  I notice the harmonic string strikes as well. Island Breeze is amazing and a major reward to the hearer.  I'll look forward to listen to everything you bring out Gary.

Thanks a million Dace! No higher compliment than to hear that a piece of music I made touched you on a level that could actually help cheer you up out of a funk! Rock on bro! You certainly made my day as well by saying that.

Thank you Farrell. Much appreciated. Glad you dig it!

I like the opening crystal clear guitar picking.....beautiful work as it carries on with little subtleties added like harmonics and then the fantastic solo takes off....excellent!

Thanks Thielus. I've been checking our your page as well. Great production and use of time/meter!

A nice dynamic buildup. Production is crisp and clean, well mixed. The main thematic clean-channel guitar is hooky and memorable. Rhythm section is tastefully supporting the track’s rich and dexterous guitar-work. Loved it.

Put some headphones on, close your eyes and picture yourself sitting on a white sandy beach somewhere with a drink that has one of those little umbrellas in it and RELAX!
