Man .....!!
This is crazy good, I was hooked from the 1st note guess being a teacher
helps to solidify skills as a player....
Cause you've surely got some Major skills, Outstanding piece of work, I
must say though think I would have used just a touch less reverb or a
different type just to clean up some of the bottom end Freq's around the 500hz range..... But that's my taste.....VERY WELL DONE...

Just how many fingers do you have?
I love this sort of music, and you play it so well. Sweet jazz chords, stride-style, single-string runs, and all tastefully intermixed.

Nailed.
Yes. A slow, deliberate, and blue drag. This is really superb, Mark. Your skill with the guitar is so evident in how you move from chord to chord and then add those tasty solo licks to keep the tune moving along. You never seem to miss a beat.
Just wonderful...again.
(I wonder if you ever think about possibly putting a little bit of orchestration behind any of these solo guitar numbers. Some soft strings, perhaps a bass thumping along, maybe a soft-shoe snare? Just a thought. Seems like a song like this one could easily lend itself to just a tad of extra-guitar embellishment. ... Of course, what you done, though, is remarkable just as it is.)
