On the plus side, I love the sound of this. A very Moore-like ballad with a very Moore-like progression. I do think you can push the vibrato on the guitar more -- he would have wrung every note for emotion. I know it's tough, because he was a legendary emotive player. The note choice is there...

The lyrics, I know, are supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, but they almost single-handedly ruined a great tune. It doesn't quite work as satire because it genuinely feels like a homage, and yet the lyrics are clearly poking fun of this type of song. I know it's not my tune, but were this mine I'd try to get inside it more and own it. The cheesy bit of fun sort of feels too easy.

Thanks for the opportunity to listen to this!
