Excellent

Im not a fan of blues(i like metal,actualy) but this is great,the first part was preety good but the second just blew me away!
The first thing that ran into my mind a 2:14 was Led Zeppelin!
Enought said,keep making those songs!

Thanks man!! It's a great feeling when someone who normally doesn't listen to this sort of music digs what i'm doing.

There's more coming, however I must warn you that not all of my tunes are like this but hopefully you'll enjoy it anyways!!!

Thanks again

I like it.

I think it was a decent throwback to an era past. Repetative? Yeah, that's blues, man. Of course, it isn't perfect, but I'd just say work on your voice pitch a little. You seemed just a tad off key in pieces (It's really hardly noticeable).

Can't wait to see more from you.

hey thanks for your comments!!

Ya i can hear some parts im off. I'm most likely going to sharpen the vocals when i'm ready for a full album. Thanks again!

Wonderful

Well I certainly do enjoy the classiness of this song and the vocals fit right to a tee as well actually. Very touchy song too since the beat kind of feels like making you do slow dancing as well actually. Very well done song though.

The bass here is real captivating and seems to draw you into listening as well. The guitar sounds pretty nice and reminds me of Cream a bit actually which is pretty cool in a way I think. The drums are very simple and help the song keep going. Then you got the vocals to help carry the message. Very well done.

Overall, great blues song!!

I agree

Music should go back to its sexy roots. The music of today is pretty MEHHHH. But I'm afraid this is too.

That's not to say I don't love your singing. I love how you use that guitar. The piano is killer. The drums really make it.

But you didn't actually finish this song. You've got the bones, some sinew, some stray muscles but you need to really flesh this out. It's just too repetitive. If you listen to some of the greatest compositions, you'll notice that the difference between an amazing song and a mediocre one is a lot of subtle effects. Change up your guitar notes a little bit. Something as simple as moving up a few frets or playing the same thing on different strings. Add some overkill emotion in your face in some parts. Change your voice tone in parts. Change the rhythm just for one line of lyrics (keep it in line length-wise).

It's extremely repetitive, but it's got a Lot of potential. The goal of a song shouldn't be to be finished, though. It should be to capture and radiate the emotion you're trying to focus in on.

Hope this helps. Finish it! I'd love to hear it afterwards.


WaxZiLLa responds:

I hear what you're saying but this is a throwback to a simpler time. It is repetitive but that's a style a blues. I draw a big influence from tantric blues. However, not all my tunes are like this so stay tuned if you like cus' there's more coming!!

Thanks for your input!! I see that you're a music lover as well!!
