    Very cool and semi-twisted tune! I like it!

    You had some very nice tone and recording quality coming from the guitars.

    The playing could stand some tightening in spots but, I got the idea of what you were trying to put out and sometimes that's enough to satisfy a listener.

    The vocals too, had a smooth tone and might benefit from a little bit more compression as I think you might have blown the meters past zero in a spot or two. The singing was good though. You have a great voice!

    I also liked the way the song came to a dead stop and then started up again for the instrumental middle part that had some very tasty moments to it. It seems like you are flirting with greatness in your guitar skills and with a bit more work, you will arrive at the level you are shooting for.

    Good stuff!

    Cheers!

    I think the guitars sound real good also, good song tjonston.
    its tough to do vocal/acoustic on a recording and get it to sound right. ANY effect you use like compression or reverb really stand out and you can end up with a ehcoy squashed sounding mix.
    I was country before they took the O out.

    Nice guitar sound and the vocal sound was also good.
    The performance is decent......nothing to really complain about here.
    There are a few timing issues here and there but I think you're already aware of that.
    i like your voice.........that's a good asset to have........can't buy it, just have to have it.......so you're most of the way there just 'cause of that.

    Thumbs up

    Overall the sounds are good. Just a few level issues here 'n there, like when that second guitar first comes in. The guitars get a bit boomy in a few spots too.

    The vocal could use a bit of de-essing, but not much. Just enough to take the edge off.

    I like the room sound in there. Really fits the mood of the tune. Some of the transitions could be a bit smoother.

    Ghost- thanks for the encouragement. I guess I wont be selling my entire studio on ebay.

    Jimistone-yea true.. when all your doing is guitar and vocal there is nowhere to hide

    Lt. Bob- Thanks for the listen. Those minute timing issues are a real pain. It kinda of like ironing out the wrinkles. Lack of editing ability will eventually make a real musician out of me.

    M. Brane- Yea boomyness has been killing me lately. I swear that its the room because the boom is present even when Im not micing. Thanks for the reply

    ok more to come. I appreciate your time thanks!

    Thanks for yor time guys. I personaly think that the guitar tone blows goats!!! The highs are icy and sterile. I thinks its the adat that does that becuase thats not what I hear live. Im using the sm-81 and the RNP then going straight to ADAT.
