It has a haunting quality to it that I like. Always been a fan of funky time signatures, too. The guitar work sounds great, as does the mix. Nice job!

Very nice guys! Gilmouresque!

Loved the changes throughout to keep things interesting, and the watery guitars at the beginning. Really got cooking @ 2:40 onwards. Great job!

Yea James...really enjoyed this tune! Glad to see you and Preston connect. He's a fantastic resource for live drum tracks and a real pro all the way around! Anyone interested if connecting here's the best way to contact him.  https://www.facebook.com/SingleMindedSoldierStudios/ 
Of course, as usual, your song writing and guitar playing are killer!!

James,
 
Really well done, reminds me of some of Dominic Miller's stuff,   then you switch to John Sykes mode at 2:30:)   Will have to have a few listens to this one...  excellent work.

The drums are very effective. Fills towards the end are pretty cool, nice panning there. 
I like the cool rhythm riffs, and especially like that funk outtro the last minute or so.
You might check :53 - :54 - - - something happens to the downbeat and my ears have no idea what. ??  What should I be hearing there?
 
A very solid and seriously mature composition.
 
cheers,
-Tom

Nice guitar playing James - the Les Paul sounded sweet on this track.  It also sounded difficult because of the key changes. Nicely done.

Good stuff...    falls right into my genre of preference.   Very enjoyable.   And for whatever reason I particularly liked the slide work during the outro - nice touch.

James, as always, when I start listening to your songs, I rarely know where it's going to end up.  Aside from being a fabulous instrumentalist, your chord arrangements are very tasty, and your mixes are quality.  Your collaboration with  Preston is a winner!

All the best,
Lynn

This is a wellwritten piece, well performed, I enjoyed it!
One thing I didn't really like was the distorted sound on the guitar, especially in the intro, it sounded better later on, but guitarsound is always a subject for debate :)
 
Well done sir!
