I didn’t know what direction this was going to in, and I tried to make it different in parts, but still sound like it comes together.

Very nice! I like the stuckato guitar when it comes in. To me, some kind of vocals or another instrument playing a strong melody should come in about midway too. Thanks for posting I enjoyed it!

    Really glad you enjoyed it. I’ll mess around with some melodies and see what else I can come up with, might start to use piano since I haven’t really messed with that much. I really just wish I could find a singer haha.

    Thanks!

I dig the melody that starts at about 1.27. Lush reverb, nice! Try some compression to soften the peaks in the same part. Maybe its my earbuds, but they seem to detract from the pretty, melodic part. Overall I like it.

    Glad you liked it, thanks! I’ll try to mess with the compression and such. I’m pretty new to the whole recording process, so I’m still learning everything as I go.

Nice instrumental piece. I like the ping-pong delay effect. If this is going to stay an instrumental tune then I hear a strong instrumental melody that builds to a climax. Nice! Bob

    Much appreciated! I probably will add a melody in there, I think it’ll probably stay instrumental. I wish I knew a singer to write for, I personally don’t sing myself.

This has alot of potential. The melodic part at the end – the guitar solo – I would have liked to have heard it higher up in the mix. From this and your other post, I’m getting a feel for your style. I like it. Keep’m com’n.

Question – On a couple of your post you have a nice use of delay (I find this a difficulty sometimes), what kind of stomp box are you using or are they plug-ins?

    Hey, thanks a lot! I agree, I think that part needs turned up, I’ll do that whenever I come back to these piece!

    As for the delay, I plug directly in. It’s a “long panning echo” effect. It’s one of the only delay effects I really enjoy the sound of, and I’m glad you do as well.

I enjoyed this piece also. With the echo it achieves a floating quality. Very serene.

Kinda like this one. It sounds to me ( I’m a very old guitar player)like a young picker experimenting with a couple of interesting ideas.
It feels like…What if I did this or that?…without having a direction or goal . Results…you can’t tell when you get there. I once took a train ride from Chicago to Memphis. It was an overnight trip, so there was nothing to look at and no clues as to where we were. The only way I knew that I had reached Memphis was the conductor yelled it out after the train had stopped. Otherwise, I’d still be on that damn train.
Get it?
