I like that guitar tone. Has a very Indie/Underground feel to it. Blends really well with the Rock N Roll style of singing. I like your style man. Keep up the good work!

thanks for the comment.. its a slow blues. and i did,nt want it to be borin.. so messed with the affects and came up with that sound.. i think it makes the btrack more interestin.. cheers gaz


Very good in its style, for sure.
The battery is perfectly executed. A great bouncy rythm with good transitions, leading to a good battery chain (with the entrance of the hat for an example).
Melodies are ok, nothing that is really soaring out from the song (except the solo, but even there it was still not too excited, with long notes). The smooth voice was suiting well to the rest in a coherent atmosphere of calm, but could have been a bit louder.

The problem is that the overall sound is really dirty. Except the battery, your overdriven guitar sounds really stifled, you should make it a bit clearer, even if you want to keep this kind of intimate sonority. Be careful to the solo guitar too that sounds a little out of tune by moments.

Overall, i find this a very good work despite these few complaints. 4/5 and 8/10.
