Wow, this is great. I love the build up to the strings. The piano parts are awesome and it looks like I've found someone on UG that can actually sing! lol. God damn! I LOVE the vocal lines. Some vocal harmonies would serve this song really well.

5/5! This is a fantastic piece.

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.

ankthebank,
Everything sounds very good, including the singing! Lyrics are good too. That piano arpeggio sounds awfully familiar, probably because I've played something very similar to that just noodling around on the keyboards/piano. It's very difficult to make it in the music industry, but I could easily picture this making it on the radio or being a hit. Please review my music at this link:

Ok thanks for the crit, I'll send the thread link to him - he'll be very happy with this!

aaron aardvark, I've commented on your link - great stuff!

Thanks for checking out my song.

This is some great stuff - sounds professional and great quality on the piano and strings. Vocals are amazing, awesome voice. Your friend can really sing - get in a band with him. I really think some vocal harmonies would add a lot to it, but it still sounds great as it is. Nothing to really criticize about it, good stuff.

Haha, it's funny actually - I'm in an online cover band with him, so I met him there. I think he's absolutely amazing, and should be really well known... that's why I've linked to his stuff!

Hi

Critting..

I think the piano could use some reverb it sounds very dry and if your going for dry ignore that lol

Lyrics are great it sounds very soulful and a little romantic haha. I feel like this song would be played in a dark jazz club. It would set the mood very well if it where played somewhere like that. No faults I think its a great song. When your voice reaches it's peak at around 3 mins! OMG amazing! Great song!

C4C!

Come check out my acoustic song

You should ask him if he wants me to put a guitar solo to this. I was messing around while listening, and I've got something that would fit it perfectly.

Hey, yeah - Why don't you record a quick draft of it or something and stick it on youtube. I'll get him to have a look at it, and he will be very surprised if someone has covered his song on there!
Who knows, he may like it and keep it!

cheers for the crit

wow, well there isnt actually much i can actually crit here, its not what i normally listen to but crikey your friend has got an awesome voice - actually heared a bit of Dio in there somewhere aswell! i think if there was one suggestion i might make which has already been said, maybe some vocal harmonies in some of the parts will give the song a little bit more depth and beef to it. Other than that, great song
#11
Ok, i'll suggest that to him - thanks for the comments!
Vox for your song are hopefully going to be great!

I listened to this yesterday, and found the Sweet child o mine cover in the related thingy on youtube. Holy mother of socks and potato chips what a performance! =O

Such a great voice. I really like the vocal lines in "For You" too.

PS: Make a facebook group for this fellow haha :P I'm on top of that like a fat kid on his cake.
#13
Well, he's got a facebook musician page here - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Chris-Ning/14898697767?ref=ts... but I don't think he uses it that much, as the last post was two years ago.
The best bet would be to check out his current youtube page - http://www.youtube.com/user/xcow1234


Cheers,

Seriously haha


The song was really good! I thought the piano sounded fine as far as reverb goes. The only things I would suggest are to get some harmonies in there and bring the cymbals/hat down a little.
