This is my entry for this months MAC - Claiming new grounds. I've gotta stop finding out about the MACS the day before they end, urgh! anyways, basically the song is based off the title. Here's a little description of the themes of each part.

00 - 20 Looking back at the year gone

21 - 40 Looking at the new year to come

41 + Going to make change!

Merry christmas!

Note: Best listened to with large quantities of volume.

Felt you bro

I feel wat ur music is talking about 10/5 bro keep it up


I def liked it, especially since the guitar is real; it takes more talent to make a song when you are actually playing. For that reason alone you deserve a 5!!
And I love the contrast between the soft background and the electric guitar's grit. Def any other instrument would have made it sound like every other song this time of year: all soft and sweet with no style! Good job.


tell me its real guitar and no program !

blacknote responds:

Of course, it's real! : )


I like it, i thought overall the song was great, very different from the norm but in a good way. Liking the beginning and the transition was cool, but i thought the guitar added a lot of soul to the piece. it's awesome. good job.

Giving out my christmas reviews, ya know?

First section sounds really really peaceful. Reminds me of an open field.
That build up with the strings is mad nice.
The balance between the instruments is exceptional.
The guitar should have been replaced with a softer instrument. But not too soft. Preferably a trumpet. A euphonium or a Trombone would have fit too. The guitar just doesn't match the feeling of the other sections prior to it though.
Chords are nice as hell.
Badly abrupt ending. I would have liked a cresendo of bells or something, ya know?

Tell you what, this song has a magical element to it. Maybe it's the choice of instruments, maybe it's the chord progression, maybe... But really, get rid of that damn guitar, it's ruining the general feeling that the rest of the song projects.

Thanks for the review, but pah! I think that although this song was done in a short amount of time, and the guitar was the most rushed part, I still think it owns its place, it adds a surprise; a dynamic twist. If this song had just been a straight forward classical song then I'd agree, but what I was going for was something more unique. As for the ending I was on my way out, this was as far as I could go in the time that I had. I'll think about removing the guitar, but really that part was the basis for the whole "change" thing, i.e change of pace, change of style etc. Thanks again.
