I can find a lot of creativity on the beginning, everything floats just right, maybe, just in my case, feel the intro too long, and too big, to end up with a closed motif, that ends up in a big orgy of great sounds, but the shape isnt really attached. Like having a lot of good words in a great vocabulary, but the sentence just dont make that much sense. The job is awesome, the richness of the composition can take the ears into lots and lots of images, reaching that intended space that this great artist propose, once you hear it, you feel the heat.

thanx for your feedback! It is a bit long winded, but if you watch the scene in the good bad ugly (which inspired this song) its even longer! of course, the movie has one of the best shootout scenes ever to watch so...it wins;) but thanx for the feedback, always appreciated, thx for the rating too:)

1:26 is where it got really good for me. Just multiple chills. I agree with Nicholas on the trumpets being a bit too loud. They should blend in with the rest of the song and also contain a bit more reverb to match the tone you're going for. But, wow! This is really good. :D

Thx Duke! I was torn on the reverb, ideally I wanted the horns to sound more like a Mariachi group but I dont have a good Mariachi sample so had to go with orchestral horns instead. I thouhgt too much reverb made the horns sound too classical. Maybe I overthought it. maybe orchestral horns were just fine...trying to be too authentic i suppose:)

The beginning was interesting in the sense that I couldn't tell exactly how you were to going to play out the composition--sounded hopeful and then ominous. Interesting chord choices, and great guitar playing. The climax at 2:00 was a joy to listen to. Too loud for some? well who cares when it's this good-- 'Tis an anthem of westerns!

thanx for the feedback and rating! much appreciated:) it is meant to be a bit longer and have time to develop, instead of just a 30 second loop.

Cheers

You found my weakness! I really love western music! The guitar riffs and how you make several plucked instruments fight against each other is awesome! The only thing that made me turn down my volume was at 2:05 where the song reaches it climax. Its too loud and in my face! Volume automation on those trumpets! Other than that I enjoyed this arrangement. Good Job!
