As for me, I used to think you got a girl pregnant by sleeping naked in the same bed as her (no contact whatsoever), or by peeing down her throat.

Love it. I think the tone on the electric is a little too 'metal' for my tastes but it does have that perfect hard rock feel behind it...just a little too much distortion, or maybe it's the amp type, I dunno. Anyway, I love the mix of acoustic and electric, drums sound great, and that pedal, I'm guessing the Boss, has a really cool effect. Good writing, good sound, just good stuff all around...no I didn't mean for that to rhyme. Definitely try and pull off a whole record.
i like the acoustic tone! the playing is really good. nice harmonies! the distorted tone is really good, what did settings did you use? i like that lead line in the chorus alot. good playing.

on the drums, you need to lower the cymbals and make the kick and snare louder. very epic, but vocals would be cool.

Too cool for a signature.
