I'm currently restricted to using my netbook for music production, as that's the only operational machine I have right now.

This pretty much means I can use audacity to record the instruments I have on hand (guitars and bass) so lately i've been fuckin with my acoustic a lot.

This is a song sort of improvised from a rough framework of riffs developed when I decided to play with the DADGAD tuning. I actually managed to get a decent (still some flubs, but I wasn't gonna do it again) take tonight.

The delay is sharp, but that's a definite choice on my part. Let me know what you think of this effort.


Better then expected.

As mentioned below, i have no idea why somebody would give this such a low score, ive heard worse in the top 30s!
The delay was nice and did fit well whit the overall theme of the song, while i wsnt a huge fan of it the first time through, its really growing on me...


-When I first came to the page and saw a 2.4 score I was well prepared to see some junk music that was shoddily put together. But upon listening to this I was suprised at how well it was done regardless of the program that you used to put it together. It's a shame how voting matters so much when something first comes into the audio portal. Well I jumped your score up 0.32 and it's a little closer to the 3.5 score that I think it deserves.

-The guitar is played well and it sounds a lot like an old country western type of mood the way it is played. Nice and mellow with a bit of delay. I did notice a couple of pitch changes but nothing too drastic. I look forward to seeing you improve in the future.

Thanks for the review, and sorry for the delayed response. I've sort of been uninterested in NG for a while.

Glad you enjoyed the track.

Man you got 0-bombed hard, which is a shame, 'cause it's quite a nice laid-back song. This track definitely is so underserving of the low score, so expect some 5-bombing on my part.

Straight away you set up the mood of the piece with the pitch-bends in the melody. Feels like the kind of thing you'd hear in a jam session; just that unassuming coolness that you can get from something simple but effective. The change in pace at 0;16 was nice; the palm muting's really clear and defined, but still light enough to fit with the mood of the track.

For something that's loosely improvised, you certainly do have a pretty decent structure to the track; there's the chorus theme that keeps coming back, there's a clear progression between the phrases, nice variation in the harmony...I'd say easily, the different harmonic changes throughout the different phrases is a highlight of the piece, because you have these fractionally darker and lighter sections, while still generally keeping that mellow mood.

That being said, I think by the end I was finding it to drag a little, wouldn't have minded it straying perhaps into another more varied section...but in general, I'd say you should 'fuck about' with your acoustic more, because you've made some pretty nice sounds here. Keep it up.

hey, thanks for the review. sorry for the very delayed response but i've kind of lost interest in NG lately.

I appreciate that you enjoyed it, considering the unpolished quality.


I don't know why some dumb MF gave you a horrible score for this. I mean, it's a jam, what do they expect?
Anyway, I liked it because it has an american folk-like sound - I imagined myself being in a canyon while playing guitar, lol.
Well done, mate ;)

loansindi responds:

Hey man, thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the piece, it's definitely a chillout sort of thing.
