Sounds Great! The introduction to the piece vaguely reminds me of Zeppelin, maybe the song Tangerine - though only a tiny bit, which is totally awesome.

I thought it was really cool how the song transitioned from kind of a more folky sound (I'm guessing, though I could be completely off base, that the song started in A focusing around the minor then transitioned with an E7 chord to E?) to a more spanish/flamenco kind of vibe and then went back to a folky kind of medieval sounding part and then into the flamenco vibe again. Cool stuff man!

Dude this is ridiculously awesome. Your tone is great. The piece has a great vibe, reminds me of some Chris Isaak stuff, like Big Blue Spanish Sky. Beautiful. You are a great player. Ocean of Lies just started playing btw, I like the vocals! Anyway, this piece flowed really well, I enjoyed it a lot!

c4c?

Funny about the 57 tied to an end table... thats how i did my last recording as well haha

Anyway i like your piece

at the very beginning there are some slight timing issues between the two guitars that throws my ear off a bit

Nice lead playing and I like the main theme. Cool tune, elegantly simple and flows well. Digging the mellow vibe

Are you an agalloch fan? Their music sounds a bit like yours does!

I really like it. Love the tone. It reminds me of some of the stuff I'm doing, or trying to do (my technique is still somewhat weak).

I come up with chord progressions that resonate with me emotionally, maybe two sets (sort of verse/chorus), maybe bridge. Then I record that. Then I solo over it, generally using blues scale. I try to use some advice from UG on my soloing, not doing too many notes, coming back to a theme, etc. To make up beats, I use a drum machine (Alesis SR 16) as I listen to a recording of chord progression looping in background, playing around with rhythm till it seems to fit my strumming pattern (which is just whatever feels right when I pick out chord progression). I'm not too good on precise drum machine timing, so it takes me some time to get a good rhythm section worked out. When I put it altogether, I like it, but I can also hear where I'm still rough on technique.

And it all comes out rather melancholy / bittersweet. Not sure if that's what you get with minor pentatonic / blues scale, or is more about how I'm feeling when I play.

So far I'm doing my recording with a free iPhone app, but am trying to figure out Reaper so I can do something more polished. But, anyway, your stuff is really good. I like the Spanish flavor, have to learn me some Spanish scales so I can break out of pentatonic / blues limitations.

I could totally listen to this all day at work. I saw you label it "folk" on soundcloud. That might fit, I might think of it more as "world." It even reminds me of some new flamenco stuff (Incendio, Ottmar Liebert, Johaness Linstead). Great stuff.
