this is a very solemn piece and the feel those strings give it is very very authentic, a nice historic mood to it, and OMG another full lengther from you and its awesome!! the emotional feeling in the song is just incredible as always and you have a great ear for instrumentation because i would have never chosen what, were those mandolins? i have no clue but those strings and the light instrumentation really give it another air. awesome job. oh, and notice, there is a pattern to the popularity of full lengthers no?
