Cool, I like your electric sound! Good work with the drum loop plus DM10, that's a very interesting approach, and it works. I'm getting a very sudden 'darkening' of the sound around 2:56, probably more because of the guitar sound change than the drums. I love Pink Floyd but will forgive you the mash up. As for John Denver, I'm sure 'Country roads' is making enough money for the estate still.

I always say if you're gonna cover a song by somebody else make it your own in some way or another. You've done that here. I'm definitely familiar with the John Denver classic, but I never was much into Pink Floyd, so I can't really judge how you did with that part of it. You varied a bit from JD's melody, but sometimes people tend to do that on cover songs. Looking at it as a tune on its own, I'd say you did a pretty fair job. I especially like the guitar solos.

Interesting combination of songs. It works! It sounds like it would be fun to play on the ukulele. You have a very unique vocal delivery and way of playing guitar that shines through even on this mash up. I like those drums at the end (not to mention the synth).

Good one.

Surprisingly I don't know either of the songs although I suspect the slide probably comes from the Floyd song. This sounds really good and it's an interesting idea.

Interesting take on "Sunshine on my shoulders" and Pink Floyd's "Eclipse". I love the instrumental bit in the middle. Odd little drop out around 03:00. Sounds like one of the instruments got thrown out of the studio! :lol: Nice distortion patch for the end solo.Those drums sound like you banged em out urself there towards the end. Cool jam, Lung.
