Great job, man. Your acoustic sounds really great. It's got a nice bossa feel to it. The drums need a bit of work though. I'd suggest listening to some bossa nova grooves to get an idea on how to improve it. As far as production goes, I would tighten up the reverb a bit in the guitar in the beginning and turn up the low end on the bass to round out the tone a bit. You don't usually hear pick noise at all in a latin recording, haha.

Hope you keep working on it.

Progbass: Loved it! except the guitars just didn't cut or have any grit to them in the recording. Im sure if it was mastered better it would be great. I loved the guitar tone at the beggining though (if it was guitar? i think it was ) It sounded very chimy, but some of the slightly off beat notes made it exciting to listen and pay attention.

Johnny: Loved it except for the guitar tone before the solo, it sounded very Mid heavy and i would have just preferred a crunchier sound but the solo was very distinctive. and very represhing, what did you use for the whammy effect? cause i notice it had a warbly sound to it when you raised and lowered pitch. EDIT!: What did you use for drums? i need a new drum program.

yea the guitar during the breakdown or bridge whatever you call it did kind of jump out
and was mid heavy i think ur right it would sound better being a bit more crunchy for the verse cleans i used a twang reverb and marshall setting and just double tracked it with a vox ac 30 setting i made the solo was also done with a voxac30 setting and the whammy was from a digitech rp80 ive had for a few years
i made a preset and tracked it twice one with a slightly diff setting and then nudged the track so it was about 8ms out of sync with the other and panned them
i use addictive drums but realy thinking about switching over to somthing else i realy liked what ive heard from steven slate drums

Hey buddy, how are you today?

So I'm going to review the song itself - not the sound quality and recording - cause that's just what I do

First of all, I really like the vibe of the song. There are some songs - especially instrumentals - that got no soul. You know they're just empty, and it's not the case here. It's an interesting song, I got into it on first listen, which is a pretty good score

I like that somehow it's not a surprising chord progression but it never gets boring, we can't get tired of it. I reaaallly like the vibe, I can almost feel the wind while listening to it (or is it the 90km/h wind outside?)

Being a fan of guitar, I probably liked it better than a drum fan or whatever, so +1 for being mostly a fantastic guitar work. We can hear you're confident in your playing in this track, it flows very well!

I like how it ends, and was glad to see there was no usual "closing chord" after the last lead part!

I really like instrumental, and it should stay that way, just in case you're struggling with the idea. Please write more material
