Just a laid-back cool bossanova style song. Didn't put too much thought or effort into this one; the whole chord progression consists of four chords!

New remix up! Check it out!

The song's called Panama.

Crit for crit!

That was really really good. I'd love to learn some Jazz someday. It's hard for me to find a good teacher in town right now, so maybe when I get into college I can take some music classes and learn more. But anyway, enough about me.

I thought it was excellent. Everything was very smooth and the transitions were very good. Everything was just very polished. The quality of the recording was very good, and the drum track was very bossanova ish. The guitar was excellent. The comping was good and I really liked your tone. The lead was excellent too, everything was just flowing correctly. It was very entertaining listening to it. I have no criticisms. How long have you been playing?

Anyway, good stuff there. I liked it a lot.

I've got a post up for a strange song called Blackberry Jam if you'd like to take a listen.

very nice samba man. I liked the percussion , you know the bongos and the marimbas etc..
the guitar solos were amazing, this song reminds me of you know, a cruise ship for the rich people with this music played by a live band on the deck while they enjoy some brandy

Very nice job man.. 10/10

Beautiful tone! I loved it. Not my style of music at all, but you kept me listening all the way through.

Great job.

Thanks for the crit, just got a chance to listen to yours.

Nice backing track, it has a very chill and relaxing feel. The percussion sounds good. The lead has a nice clean tone and there's a lot of interesting and catchy licks. Good playing.

Like someone else mentioned, this reminds me of a cruise ship. Overall, nice job, this is very cool and relaxing.
#10
yeah, it does sound verry clean...and the backup instruments sound great. really impressive guitar playing...i really don't know how to crit this because theres nothing wrong with it. plus i don't know anything about this style. it sounded very professional, and i did find it entertaining. very nice playing. thanks for the crit.

I like it a lot, but wow, I REALLY like that jazz improv you have right under that. It's crazy good!

This is really really nice, it certainly does feel laid back, that cruise ship feel some one mentioned earlier, if only I was listning to it on the deck of one...

My only comment is that in some places personally I would like the guitar to have a bit more presence, but other than that perfect.

gorgeous guitar playing. The clean tones are orgasmic. I totally loved the whole fell you had going. Each riff, i thought, cut through very nicely. The production value of this is very high compared to most recordings posted on this site these days.
Big props.
Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the crit again, i appreciate it.

Thanks! Seems like Stormcrow was everyone's favourite. Maybe I should record some sort of revised version of it...

I'm not going to lie, I found my body swaying back and forth while listening to the song. Haha... Super chill, dude. I love the little "shred" tangents you go on. Kind of makes me feel like going on cruise. Kudos, brother.

type as i listen

nice little intro setting the whole feel of it.

beautiful tone i must say :-D

the percussion is sweet, of course nice latin feel

very clean soling, and very good note choice

i liked that little harmony part

i feel like there should be a sweet horn harmony in here somewhere, thatd be really cool, maybe with some strings and a chorus doing some doo's and ooh's :-D

it kinda ended abruptly, but overal sweet job!

Yeah, I know. I couldn't really think a good ending for it so I just decided to play a chord there. By the way I like the idea about the horns and strings...
#25
This has a nice sound and some nice playing, but it's not entirely melodic in spots. I think it's maybe too scale based and not enough playing to the chords. But I can't really nitpick too much because it's still pretty good, and I have the same problem when soloing over chords. The tune over all is nice and unoffensive and has few surprises. It's good, but also just sort of there. Something nice to zone out to.

haha so true.

this is a great song. You did really well soloing over the chord changes. You also incorporated your speed playing well, although there might have been an instance where it didn't fit completely. I would have been impressed if you sat down and wrote this, but considering this is improvising I'm reallly impressed.
#27
That was excellent. You certainly know how to play Jazz, and I think thats something alot of people find hard to adapt to, especially if they've come from a juxtaposing musical background. It's all very clean and precise - this seems to be evident in not only your tone but your playing. The soloing refrains from bends and too much legato, which is of course key for Jazz playing. You also adhere to the same theme whilst still maintaining variety which is good, like the solo sections and the two-part harmony melodies. Great stuff.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I should be using more chord tones and arpeggios in my soloing. I'm working on it...
#29
I liked the laid-back feel in it.
Makes me want to go chill at some quiet beach in the Bahamas.
It gives a very nice ambience.
#30
Sounds Great. Maybe a bit to much like shredding in the beggining. It sounds like the second solo should began the song, and the first solo should end. Write a cool melody for it and It would sound really cool. I was wondering if you could send me that backing track somehow because I play saxaphone and just wanted to do some improvising over it. thanks.

hey thanks for the crit! ill listen to yours as i write.

okay i really like the feel you have going on right here. the very first set of rhythm chords could use a little cleaning up. once the other tracks come in, this song is gold! solid backing track very cool sounding. someone above mentioned a cruise ship dancing song, i totally agree. good stuff sof slow dancing. the leads are amazing, good jazz phrasing and very clean smooth tone on the fast runs. i am very impressed with this song as a whole. i dont play much jazz, so i couldnt really comment on your playing any more than that.
i like it, quality of recording and playing wise you have a finished some here.
