Man, I'm impressed... this song is very relaxing and nice to listen. Maybe it's not technically advanced, but it's very good! Easy, relaxing classical song. The chord at 2.00 sonds a little bit strange, but i think it's only the midi fault. After all, good work!
For the first time i don't want to change anything in somebody's song.

I really dig this. It was very relaxing. Just a simple finger picking progression, but it sounds really good. I personally wouldn't change anything.

10/10

Very, very well done. It is so reminiscent of ... an RPG when you walk into a tavern. Very relaxing and makes me want to take a nap... and for that. 10/10. ^_^

I liked it a lot.....it is relaxing indeed......and I love the part around 1:00 and 0:40.....
I think there is something strange in 1:17...it could be midi or nothing...I just think something was not in place.....and also what sharkuzzi said about the chord at 2:00, it sounds kind of weird....but still good
Everything sounds so good, and doesn't get boring nor repetitive.......very good work (maybe you could add another instrument if you want.....but it doesn't really need to )
9.5/10....
Man...I really like your songs

Mind critting one of mine? (one of the last 5 in my sig if you can )

Cool i really enjoyed this. It all flows so well and like everyone else has said, it relaxes you. Its very reflective music and has loads of highlights and good sounds. Well done. My only complaint if i have to think of one is its shortness, but thats probably just me.

Good job!

PS i got a song up at the moment "Powertab Funk song" or something like that. COmments would be appreciated.

This is a good relaxing song, and its a textbook acoustic song...pretty good, pretty good IMO its a bit boring but I don't think you wanted the song to have an over extravagant pretentious feel to it.

mm, the guitaring was good, and you could tell you worked hard on it, but it sounded alot like a piano peice rather than an acoustic peice. But still good none the less.

well i actually came with it while fingerpicking an A chord. But I just changed the acoustic guitar to piano and it sounds great. I'm going to try and play it on piano later.

I like this, I think there's a lot of ideas in there to keep it more interesting, pretty much no two bars are the same. The song works well as a whole, it's a nice length for an instrumental, but yeah I think it could be better as a piano piece, not sure.
I like from bar 12 to the end best, I think there should be more of that, whether you choose to put it in nearer the start as well, or add it over some of the earlier parts in the form of a second guitar. Obviously it would need to be altered a bit to make sure the two parts play in the same chords, but I really think that would improve the piece.
This is only a suggestion though, and to be honest it's fine as it is, so truly well done with this one mate.

it starts out good, i dont like bar 10 though, and the last part where u repeat everything, i would like it better if it was just played once each. just seems a bit dragged out. overall i like it.

It's realy cool man, like someone said earlier, reminds me a bit of someting you would find in an RPG game or something (but maybe that's just because the midi-sound reminds me a bit of old nintendo games or something). It's not really a 'song' in the way it doesn't have a verse-chorus structure, but I don't know if it was your intention of doing so. It's just a tune, but a very well written one.

Did you get the name for this song from the track " Caustic Acrostic" by Fugazi?

I agree with the rest "this song is sooo relaxing"!! .. the only part which i would say should be changed is the last 3notes on bar 10, other than that a great song!!

9.8/10
