Dude, this is an excellent piece. Great structure, great buildup, and stellar recording quality. Perfect mix of the instruments as well; song tells a story in a way that good songs ought to.
The solo sounds a bit choppy, and does have a few notes that are a little out there, but that's really a nitpick. Felt like I had to work extra hard to find something I didn't like in this piece. This is something I'll be soloing over at home for fun.
Well I thank you sir! This song is very very personal for me for some reason. It really means allot!
That's not me playing the solo though, mad props to the guy who did. Sorry if that detracts from the song for you. The same guy who recorded it for me was the solo guy. Truly a better guitarist than I. He took my little riff and added some scale work and had fun. At first I was pensive about it, but by now I've fallen in love with his solo. It's the best part of the song really... but it's still MY song ;) I'm the one who obsessed over it, and played it over and over, and poured my soul into it!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
