Requiem to an e String

My e string broke while recording this. I'll miss her, this wouldn't have happened if I had replaced it before. Woulda, coulda, shoulda ):

My guitar cried too.



The guitar came in un-flowingly but it did play quite well over the top of the piano. Piano was very good. Good that you left the notes hang for a bit, and the slow tempo. Keep up the good work.

Kind regards -

Celebrate the new string

Not a bad little tune, but I think that you need to do a new piece to celebrate the arrival and fitting of the new E string. A very sad and sombre piece that puts things in context.

With the sadness of this tune, I think that we have only one progression, as the things can only get better - I would have preferred to hear it longer, without the "I fuckin' miss you" lyric over the end, as it's just too much.

Good song

I know how you feel. It's sad when a string breaks. Especially when you have to replace it with a different string. My e-string broke quite some time ago and I had to replace it with a fucking b-string... :/

Well, the piano sounds very sad and when the guitar suddendly sets in it doesn't sound so fitting at first. But it gets better some seconds later.

The "double solo" (played with two guitars? Or did you use an effect board there?) sounds a bit off from time to time. I think it would be better to only play the solo with only one guitar/without the effect.

I recorded the thing twice (my string broke whilst playing it the second time as you can tell by the abruptness, hence the name), and both came out wrong, so I decided to be lazy and mixed them together :D

Thanks for the review. And yeah, it's a bitch to replace your string, specially when your guitar has a complicated system ._.;

A piano and guitar piece...


Background: A lone stranger, walking down a dim street, in the dead of night. Nowhere to go. Nothing to be.

Reminds of one those sad stories - filled with sorrow (the pianos) and rage (the guitars). Although the guitars came in a tad too early and abruptly. It just didn't sound right upon entrance. Maybe try to have it lead up next time, with more intense piano playing.



GronmonSE responds:

Will do. This was on-the-spot playing, I should stop improvising haha. I'll try better timing with the guitar and a better introduction, I admit it does sound a bit off.

Thank for the review.

Pretty nice

I think the transition to the guitar bit could have been done a bit better. It comes in rather abruptly. Once the guitar is in though, it does sound nice. Really fits the tone. The piano is nice. Also, LOL at the "I'll fucking miss you, E-String".

Brokendeck: The song is called "Requiem to an e String" and you're surprised there is a guitar? Umm... try again please? lol

GronmonSE responds:

Haha exactly.

And yeah, the guitar's introduction could have been better indeed.

Thanks :D
