I like this a lot, especially the guitar leads. My only complaint is that there was not enough guitar leads in the song as I much prefer the guitar leads over the synth leads. I though the synth leads were a little redundant, however that my just be me and YMMV.

It is a good song!

eric,

Always enjoy your guitar. You were really cookin' on this one. I agree with Mario - the synth could have lasted maybe 30 seconds and then bring your guitar back in about 1:30... Good rhythm to the backing tracks (the end was a bit abrupt). I also thought a trumpet would have been a nice addition to this one...

Love the guitar.

Greg spoke the exact words I initially thought. Carlos would really like that.

Maybe the synth solo is a touch too long, and repetitive. I was trying to use it as a hook but it didn't quite do that for me.

Nice feel and groove though throughout the whole song, but perhaps the ending was a little unpredictable / truncated?

Hi, Eric !:))


I liked your mambo truly very much !
You are mastering this latin genré also
I can hear !:)) I think you´ve really
captured the right mood here. I see
before me a couple entangled in a soul
dance in a dark and smoky
(misty) night club somewhere in the Caribbean ?


Cheers
Dani

Hi Eric,

nice playing and a great guitar tone.
Agree with some others: It's a pity you didn't
bring back your guitar after some synth lead.

Hi Greg, I agree, your guitar playing is way too good not to return on a third chorus. Great stuff!

Hey eric,

Absolutely every time I hear you play, I come away thinking "I wish I knew how to play guitar". You're very talented and your music is ALWAYS a pleasure to listen to.

I really enjoyed this. It's great to hear something Latin.

Regards,
Noel

Well, I know many artists don't like comparisons....but I'm gonna jump on the Santana bandwagon here. Mighty tasty and a cool backup to go with the wonderful guitar. I love this music!
