Hyper Octave Blues by Hyadis 9 years ago
Definitely a different take on the blues... not sure I'd call it blues, but I guess that's up to everyone's own interpretation. Really cool guitar tones and leads, though!

Really nice mix, guys, and good performances! Definitely has an original feel, too.
Milky Boulevard by moorlandt 10 years ago
Really interseting sound here, can't think of who it reminds me of, but it's cool nonetheless. Good overall mix, although I agree with Ashley, like to hear the bass a tiny bit more.
I SEE THE PIECES by KCsGROOVE 10 years ago
Defintely sounds a bit like J J Cale, and has that Cale laid back style groove.

Lady From Rome by laf6354 11 years ago

Cool catchy rock song! I agree, the drums are a bit weak, they could definitely stand to be beefed up with some eq on the low end. Same goes for the bass as well, can't hear it very much.

Our Voice (New Mix) by johanevander 11 years ago
5

Cool song guys, but I agree about the vocals, not so much about the performance, but they clip in a few places. The solo is great, but I'd like to hear it blend in sound a bit more with the track, it has a very separate sound from the rest of the song.

Touch Me Again (version 2) by artist08 11 years ago

Pure pop about boys and girls and people feeling people insde... Well done, though. It has a unique rhythm section sound, and you sing well on the track. Also, I like the mix on this version better.

Very nicely done. Catchy melodies and good song structure, it flows well and doesn't drag at all.
F**K you Mr. President by DonovanFraser 11 years ago
5

Yea@!!!!!!! This is the song that I've been wanting to write for six years now... As for the musical quality of the piece, since this is a music site and not a political site, great mixing job, awesome bass and rhythm track. You obviously put your heart into this one.
Welcome Home by DonovanFraser 11 years ago
5

Awesome!! Great tone, great playing, and very cool concept. I also like the GW samples and agree that the lead guitar could be bit louder in spots. Perhaps a tiny bit of reverb and eq tweaking would also help give the vocals more presence, but overall, a really cool piece. I like it!
Why You Gotta Act Like That by likz 11 years ago
I have to ask, just what is the point here? You seem to have a good handle on production and mixing a good quality audio recording, but don't you have anything better to sing about than ***ing b***es and h**s and ***ts? Is it purely for shock value, or do you really think that it's ok to talk about and treat women this way?
Storm Surge by tjvacchio 11 years ago

Really great rhythm guitar tone!!!!. The lead guitar gets a little muddied up in the mix, but otherwise, great playing!!
Monday Afternoon by tjvacchio 11 years ago

Good use of loops, you've arranged them into a nice song structure. Now perpaps you could find someone on this site to add lyrics and vocals, or better yet, go ahead and give a go yourself!
Complex City by Luc 11 years ago
It started out with a pretty cool groove, although one of the initial loops was clipping, but then it just wandered off and never came back. You have some neat looping ideas in here, but many of them could make up their own song. Jumping from style to style without returning to any of them again makes the piece lack continuity and gives it no tonal or thematic center.

My Way Home by Mystified 11 years ago

This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful pieces I've ever heard. Few people on the planet have a voice as clear and pleasing as yours, Misty. And of course, incredible, tasteful guitar work.
Yellow Jacket by TheTiler 11 years ago

Really cool mix of styles here in this piece, some classical influences mixed in with the fingerstyle. I like it!

Fun little collection of loops, although I guess knowing that you played drums, I think I wanted to hear them more.

Man, this is really good!!!! I'd like to hear the guitar just a tiny bit louder, though. Otherwise, an awesome composition with excellent production.

Blind by Conor 11 years ago

The songwriting, recording and production job are all very good, but I have to agree with the previous person, the performance itself is just pretty flat and it's lacking in emotion and passion.

Lights of Gomorrah (2006) by jtkattner 11 years ago
5

Your voice reminds me of Roger Waters, and so does the song. I like it, but I'd be curious to hear what a little piano would do to it. On the other hand, I kind of like it the way it is. The only thing I'd say is that the shaker is a little off time, not sure it even needs to be there.

I really liked your harmonica addition to this version. I guess it is a little loud compared to the vocals, but that's easy enough to fix. Nice playing, though!

Take Me Away by guitarjockey1115 11 years ago
Awesome riff, it's going to be a great song, I'm sure when it all comes together.
If I Knew The Pixies by guitarjockey1115 11 years ago
A little more midrange in your guitars would help them stand out above the bass more prominently, and take center stage, especially since you don't have vocals. Alot of times rock/metal guitars drop the mids so that they don't compete with the singer, but here you could easily afford to bring that up, they're kind of being lost in that boomy 200-500k range. Lessen that a bit and bring up around 1k. Otherwise, your playing is good.
Little Red Rooster (gallo rojo) by Barretok 11 years ago

Wow, what a cool original take on a classic blues song. Very interesting style.
restless by BILLYTHEKID 11 years ago
Your drums are pretty darn good, especially for one take. They slip a little bit in a couple of spots, but overall, they sound good and the part is interesting enough for the song. Cool piece, and nice guitar parts.
THE PERFECT DAY. by BILLYTHEKID 11 years ago
5

Beautiful song, and I think it appropriately captures the feeling of fresh tracks on a blue bird powder day.
RESTLESS by BILLYTHEKID 11 years ago
5

Awesome piece! Great energy, great guitar playing, great rhythm parts, and really cool ending. I wanted to hear the lead guitar more in the mix, though, it begins very strongly, but then seemed to get lost under the groove of the rhythm guitar, bass and drums in the B section.
HMMMMM... by BILLYTHEKID 11 years ago
5

Really nice piece! I dig the slap bass and solid groove, it contrasts nicely with the airy rhythm guitar, and great energy on the guitar solo, although it seems a little burried, perhaps a bit of eq would help bring that to the forefront where it deserves to be. I would have liked the solo section to be longer. Also, really nice drum parts.
METEOR_SHOWER by BILLYTHEKID 11 years ago
5

Nice piece, although it definitley could be longer, I wanted to hear the second section take off and keep going for awhile, but on the other hand, too little is usually better than too much. I really like the piano part in the first section. Nice songwriting.
CHOOSE by BILLYTHEKID 11 years ago
5

The distant guitar solo here is a little reminiscent of Franz Zappa's imaginary guitar notes in the song "Outside Now" from "Joe's Garage." Pleasing tone and nice piece.

Reminds me of Paul Simon. Nice job, great singing, excellent harmonies, and mixing. Good song, too. Looking forward to hearing more.
(Look at Me) I'm a Star by Boris_the_Bull 11 years ago
5

Man, Borris, you're really a good songwriter and the Dylan thing... well, let's just say that if you a little older, it might have been you instead of ol' Bob to make it big! I agree with DavidBowles, a little production work would really bring your voice out front and give it the depth and intimacy that it deserves.
Slumbering by Boris_the_Bull 11 years ago
5

Borris, I've listened to it three times in a row now, and I very much like this piece of songwriting. The meaning of the song really speak to me, and the high singing style works really well for this track. From a production standpoint my opinion is that the snare drum hits are just a little thin sounding and might be beefed up a bit with eq and more reverb. Also, although I think the song works ok with no drums, perhaps to make it so those snare hits don't just come in and out of nowhere, maybe some sort of drum/hi hat track of some sort throughout at least part of the song (after the second chorus?) would help tie that in and really take the track somewhere. My 2 cents, anyway, but again, VERY nice songwriting. I really like what you have here, but the producer in me wants to see it go farther and I think that this song has a ton of potential!!

You mean this isn't the Beastie Boys? Wow, this is ****ing great!! Awesome production all around.
Car by MichaelThuy 11 years ago
5

Very nice bit of songwriting and really nice instrumentation in there. I really like the acoustic gutiar in the left channel and what sounds like a tonewheel organ in the right channel in the bridge. Overall, great mix too. My constructive comments would be a very slight eq on your lead vocal, just dropping it a tiny bit around 2-3Khz to warm it up a bit. It has nice presence, though.
Richo's Drum Solo by sandman88 11 years ago

Wanna Be Loved By You by dbailey 11 years ago
For some reason, none of my audio files were saved for this version, so if anyone wants to use my guitar parts, I suppose that I can re record them and send them via email.
The Fugitive by dbailey 11 years ago
Thanks, everyone, I appreciate all your comments! Is it metal? Is it rock? Who knows, but you gotta call it something, right?

The Slide by TheTiler 11 years ago
5

I'm such a fan of good slide guitar and this really does it for me. Such a good groove and tight rhythm section. I'd agree, it could benefit from some vocals, but not having them doesn't hurt the track any.
My First GarageBand Upload:) by TheTiler 11 years ago

Man, what beautiful guitar sounds and such tasteful playing. Only just listened to you for the first time today, but I'm definitely a fan of your music now.
Love/ blues/ guitar fingerpicking/slide by TheTiler 11 years ago
5

Really nice playing and great guitar sounds. Nice sense of depth with the reverb. The only thing I want to hear is a slightly louder vocal track. It's mixed well, but I feel that the singing could be a touch louder, just to bring it out front and give it more presence.
Shove That Butt Up Your A** by gcooke 11 years ago
5

Yea, you get my vote for the message as well, although I think that the music is well produced too, nice midrange effect on the vocals and tasty instrumentation in the mix. The vocals have a great sense of urgency, especially in the chorus.

Not usually my favorite type of music, from a critical listen, I'd have to say that the songwriting and the production are very good. Very ethereal and revealing song. Good job!!
