Hi James,
 
I'm in one of your song threads early for a change
 
Love the type of playing your doing here ...very tasteful & easy to listen too...
Your guitar playing takes me from point A to lot of nice musical places along the way as the song develops ...
I enjoyed  that little Gilmore slide thing ...later on in the song ....This is also a nice collab ...
I don't I don't know if you used it or not on this song , but if you did ...
I think you really showed that pedal we were talking about a while back who the boss is

Thanks Andy, this started out as that 'ambient' piece I was going to do, but it didn't turn out that way!

LOL!
 
I sometimes have that problem [;]
 
Just run it through Adaptiverb, 100% wet, and it will become "ambient"

This James is very nice, an exceptionally nice way to ease my furry ears awake on this Monday morning.  My furry body is still in post GMT shock, this has made the transition to BST easier thanks.

Nice bass and backing vocals from the supporting primates.

Thank you very much Kenny! I was trying to keep this one quite 'smooth'. Good ears, there are indeed a couple of tones using the RP55 pedal

Very nice! Love the guitars, as always. Bass is understated, but supports the song very well. The backing vocals were a pleasant surprise, just because I've never heard you do that before. Altogether, really well done track!

Thans Dan. Since that was exactly what I was going for it seems I hit the mark. At least for you.

Thanks John! I find it's better with the clock change to do it in the morning after I get up at my usual time

Thank you Dan! Ed always 'finishes the jigsaw' with the bass, it's a treat to pop it into the project and hear what he's come up with. The BGVs were a late idea, but Daryl & Liz did exactly what I'd imagined, and it works really nicely.

Foreboding strife
 
Until bout 20sec
 
The bass kills
 
That old time synth sound is cool
 
those backing vox?  Who is your choir?  My lord who?
 
At three minutes the light shines, the subdued solo, man! Are you using a slide?
 
And then at 4 minutes you kick MFA
 
sometimes
in the world today
the butter and jelly
comes into play
with the deftness of a clown
intentionally
 
(a real clown, not a politician
harmonic convergence
left hand motocross)
 
makes you think
 
nice work homes

What a great review Jesse, thank you. Yep, used a metal slide in there. So glad you liked that little outro. The choir is Daryl1968 and his good lady.

OK, that was too cool...    "Dream" vibe?  Yup, check. 
 
A little Floyd-ish for sure, but different enough to be its own thing.  The "choir" sounds perfectly blended.  The slide part was really nice, and the guitars just all around sound great.  I enjoyed those little lines starting at around 3:50.

Outstanding.  I love this style of music anyway, but this is perfectly done.  Floyd-ish, as has been pointed out, but without the negative energy I get from a lot of Floyd music.  Gentle warmth instead of cold despair, if you know what I mean.  
 
Anyhow, on my second listen now.  Thanks for sharing!

That was a nice way to start the day.  A perfect blend of tones and textures over a flowing arrangement.
