Thank you Clarky. I think the ringing open strings helped brighten things up and the cbg helped counter balance a bit.

You are very kind Nancy!! Glad to hear it was good for a 2nd helping :-) Makes me smile  Great picture which fits the tune perfectly! Thank you so much!

Sounds great Derek, nice bright sounding strings there.  Kinda cheery and moody at the same time.

I think the guitar alone would have worked, but I felt like adding some sprinkles. Thanks RTZ :-)
