Happy St. Patrick's Day! Some good times ahead for us this day! Get your green and wear it with pride! Entry for St. Patty's Day NAC. And why not make one for the good of it?

I've never made a song in one day. And I've never made rock/celtic. And yet, these two happened on the same exact day and I love it! Today is just a great day for music making!

I got the sense of a jig first off, but then it rocked into a modern sounding tune. Nice Melody! I wasn't a fan of that fakey fiddle lead. It had way too much vibrato for a lead. This has a definite Irish feel, but I just can't get past that fiddle. When the song breaks into fife/pipes, I still was left wondering why you didn't find a higher quality instrument. The drums were nice and the beat left me rocking my head around a bit.
Overall: Better fiddle and better pipes and this would be excellent in my book.

SWEEEEEET - I love the direction you took this - and the use of cello in the bg. I like how you stuck to all celtic instruments - the violin doesn't sound 100% realistic so I am going to assume you used a sample for it - and kudos for even attempting it, as violin is a very iffy thing to use as a lead if it's not actually recorded.. just because of all the advanced timbers and tiny sounds in it.

Flute I would have preferred to see some reverb on.. it just feels a bit too stark for my liking. And maybe that arp in the bg spread out a bit more and maybe brought up a bit more - it's being drowned out in the bg.

still.. after a while I did feel it got a bit repetetive.. I would have liked to see some diversification of your melody. Other than that though great attempt! Nice use of claps hehe..

Nice, I'm glad to hear a heavier st-patty song. However, it kinda feels empty for most of the song, like it starts and has a progression but then always comes back to only a few instruments instead of building up. The samples are pretty weak as well but the actual composition is pretty good. I liked the flute break around 1:45. Good idea trying to go heavier but you could have had more conviction with your concept and make it more heavy. I still like the melodies very much so it's good stuff.


Gets me the St. Pattys Feeling! Nice!
