I have recorded three original pieces and would love some feedback on which works, which does not, along with tips for improvements. Two are multi-tracked and one is recorded in one live take:

Listening to 'Pressing On', it's really chilled. Not overly keen on the acoustic tone, but the playing is absolutely fantastic. I'm reminded slightly of Rory Gallagher's acoustic playing, but less frantic and more relaxed.
Primavera has a much stronger acoustic tone to my ears. The part at the beginning was pretty haunting, definitely very wintery. I liked the gradual increase in brightness as the piece went on
Santiago is also pretty cool. The melodies seemed to shift more frequently between dark and bright, which I thought was interesting. Again, the slide playing was flawless
If you could check out any of my singer-songwriterish material that would be great, here's the link:

Dear Paddy
Thanks for your feedback. I listened to your work and loved it. The strongest element is the songwriting and the immediacy of your performance. Compelling and heartfelt. Phoenix is very strong; the only weakness is that the guitar solo loses the rhythm a bit in the middle. Pessimism has a stronger rhythmic base, the solo is simple but very effective. The whole song benefits from a tighter form. Don't fall behind has a nice intro, but there's a hesitation before launching into the song, which has a really nice bit of fingerpicking. The transitions between sections send a bit of a judder, although each section is really great. Needs a bit more work in integrate them. Bulldozers starts beautifully. Transitions into the song really nicely. The slow section at the end works extremely well. All in rather wonderful original inspiring stuff. I'm going to subscribe to your youtube channel.
