A good listen, Sergio.

I think your guitar needs to come up some in the mix. It's kind of "tucked in" with everything else.

Nice tune overall, I agree with Floyd, the lead guitar could be a tad louder.

Ditto.... yeah, bring the guitar up about 6 db... it's really buried in the mix.

The tune is nice.... it has a nice flow and chord progression.

Agree with the others. Sweet tune!! Guitar could come up a little. It might be interesting to play with the processing a bit too-a bit of distortion/reverb? Really nice work! Take care. Greg

Outstanding playing and arrangement.
Two good reasons to raise the gain a
bit on the guitar!

A very cool and enjoyable listen.

the playing style in these real tracks really work well with the chords you've chosen for the song. The intro was very nice.

I liked when the strings came in... and those HiQ strings sound AWESOME! Good choice!
I also heard brass near the end, but there was no mention of brass real tracks or MIDI in your list. The brass sounded very good, and now I'm curious to know what you used so I can use it too.

Sounds like you played the guitar part... so my next questions would be:

what kind of guitar?
what effects did you use?
direct connection? or mic on the amp?

The break in the middle where only the rhodes piano plays was an interesting break in the pattern. I found myself wondering if it was the ending, then your wall of sound came back for a grand finale! Innovative ending!

Thanks for posting! That was a fun and interesting listen!

Hi Pat

the guitar is a Fender Stratocaster Highway One
connected to pc by an external mixer.
For this song I used Vandal VST - clean sound
The brass vst is not in BiB.

Hello and thanks.

Yes this is excellent! Those Strats are very versatile are they not!

I agree that the guitar has to come up a bit; you have great chops why not show them off?
