very andy mckee inspired it seems. Awesome piece, i've always really liked this style of acoustic guitar playing. Very close to flawless considering how hard pieces like this are. great stuff.

Thank you very much! I usually just write McKee so people know what they are getting into, I love his music but I write my stuff all in my own style (though it is pretty similar to his).

I'll check yours out right now!

I feel that this is nice music but I want to be honest with you MR!! I feel that this MUSIC you are showing us is not your true dictate, that you are playing safe, deep in your MIND you know that people will like this because of your strong skills and FRIENDLY HARMONIES and SLAP THING. but, I dont feel this is MUSIC OF YOUR HEART!!

I WOULD LUV IF YOU WOULD EXPLORE YOURSELF AND NOT BE AFRAID OF THE RISK OF REJECTION

The music is nice, and everyone will like it, has nice clear melodies and dainty pretty progressions, I think you are short changing yourself though

Share da luv bruv!!

Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.

It may not resonate with you but I just made a room of people cry with it. To each his own I guess.

It comes from the deepest parts of me and it is my emotion expressed in sound, I'm sorry you don't see it that way because it's the only way I CAN express it. I don't fear rejection, I get plenty of that in my music department, I fear people not understanding. I

And I don't care about the slaps and harmonics, they're just a tool of expression. If it can be expressed with a solo line, then that's enough.

I'll crit yours momentarily.

Hi,

I really like your song It reminds me of Andy McKee, I wish I could play acoustic like that, I've always liked such style of playing, though I've never practiced it. As for the performance, there were a few mistakes, but still it was great and the song is composed well. Keep up the good work

This is freaking beautiful. Love the chord use. Amazing melody. The harmonics need a tad bit of work in places, but you've got yourself an incredible tune. Not much to critique on. Wish I could play like this. Excellent feel throughout the entire track too.

Critique for critique?

Others say I have an Andy MeKee feel too.

To harlot, I prematurely uploaded it, I'll admit. I was super excited about my new equipment and I had just finished writing it so I decided to record it. I'm normally a lot cleaner than that. But thanks! I'll crit yours momentarily.

This is really good, there are some really nice melodies in this. I can tell you worked hard on it, I can't really think of anything wrong with it. Good job! What tuning were you using for this?

C4C?
