Bill, the depth and breadth of you playing,
always astounds me. How you get that Koto sound so convincingly on your ax, I have no idea, but you do. Another wonderful diversion that you've given us, my friend, and I thank you for it.

Intriguing title
Your playing never ceases to amaze me. You blend things together which I'd never think of, and you make it sound totally natural. Clear and sweet.

I don't know how Australians feel about it...
...but in my part of the world, "Waltzing Matilda" used to be quite overdone in our music classes, enough to put most people off of it, but despite this, I somehow arrived at adulthood still loving the tune and also loving its offshoots by Tom Waits and Eric Bogle...

Really nice playing again, Bill.... Only minor crit is that there are a couple of spots where I seem to be getting some overload distortion in the right channel when you honk down with the thumb....

Well stuff me jumbuck in me tuckerbag Bill
A really good version of Waltzing Matilda, which is like our alternative national anthem (and yes Ed, very much overplayed here during my formative years!). I hear the right channel clipping that Ed mentions - otherwise a lovely sounding interpretation.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Clarity of vision, execution
Bill, good to hear anybody after being without a computer for a few weeks, but especially YOU, of the Clean-as-a-whistle School of Fingerstyle. Both the left and the right. This harkens back to some of the earliest instrumental stuff I heard of yours in 2005, although you've trimmed-back the reverb since then. No need for extra ambience when you've got such a clear message to bring us. Thanks, friend.
