A quiet, dark piece with just my guitar.

Inspired by my new boooyyyfriend. :3

I'm really enjoying this ambient guitar soloing - really projects a sort of dark, contemplative mood. You don't too much effects (for an ambient piece, at least) going on, so the guitar has a really transparent texture, which I felt worked quite well in this piece. My favorite part is probably that gorgeous chord at about 1:40 - I actually felt that place was actually quite a good place to end the piece. The parts after that felt a bit tacked on, since it doesn't really go anywhere - probably would've worked better if you added another minute or so to balance it out. Still, very enjoyable piece, and really nice guitar playing overall. Great job.

Funny thing is, it did actually end on that chord for the first run through, but I decided I didn't want to end on a root note as I was recording, as that gives a feeling that the piece is complete. So as the ambiance of the pad's bassy A was ringing out, I recorded a few odd broken chords being thrown out of tune with my whammy bar to give a feeling that there's more to it, but it's halted on a darker, unsatisfying measure.

Or something. Hahaha. Thanks for the review man!

Well now...

This song sounds sort of jazzy, in a mysterious and dark way. It's sort of like one of those songs that would play in a dark flashback looking back on an unknown person that has a unique vibe. If that makes sense...

I can't give any criticism here, this song is just perfect! Excellent playin here, keep up the good work!


For anyone with ears.

Absolutely enchanting. It's not often I hear talent of this quality in the ambient section. You have a style all your own, and you seem very comfortable with it. I'd give you some criticism to build on, but this piece is too perfect as is.

A 5 and a 10.

Kor-Rune responds:

Thank you. The person I wrote it for is very special to me. I just thought about him as I composed and performed, and something apparently majestic came out. Thanks for the review!
