    I've been working on this one for over a year now :)

    I 1st tried both the slide and lead guitar parts on my US made Strat but finally settled on my Gretsch.
    Guitar amp used was my trusty Mesa Boogie Mark V 25.
    I used a Godin acoustic for the picking parts and a Fender Jazz bass.

    Thanks to Sam and Mike for the great piano, vocals and brushy percussion parts.
    Hope you enjoy this mellow ride.

    If I could ever do something this good, I'd be very proud. You should be, for sure!

    I think I could hear the dolphins swimming and jumping along side the ship.
