Howdy pardner! How you like 'em old strings and woods and such?

Thank you for listening, and enjoy!

EDIT: Wow! :D On the "Best of the Week" list, and it's my first time! Thank you ALL so much! ;D


I didn't this combination would sound good....,

But you proved me wrong! Great job! It sounds like it could be a song in one of the legend of zelda games.

Love it

Wow. You've got such a massive range of styles. I've honestly never heard anything like this from you before, and I can really tell you had a blast making it. The only problem with it is that there's not enough of it. Really nice work! Also sorry if this review comes out as a little half-arsed. It's pretty late here.

To begin with, this sounds incredibly realistic. I guess you can't expect a lot less from East/West instruments, but I have the exact same plugin as you and yet my songs don't come anywhere close to as realistic as this. You've added plenty of dynamic variation to brighten up the piece and give it that touch of realism and authenticity which makes all the difference.

When listening to this track, I've noticed that you really know your way around the orchestra. You effortlessly glide from one song section to another, carry the melody by a variety of different instruments, and if I had to attempt something like this I'd make a total mess of it, but you do an amazing job of keeping such a wonderful, flowing sound which isn't too cluttered but isn't too simple either.

Regarding composition, there isn't much to be desired. The melody screams the word 'cowboy' to me and the instrumentation/structure give this song a nice medieval feel to it, so I can't say the title doesn't do this song justice. This honestly sounds like it came straight out of a fantasy movie because of such high production value.

The transitions were so smooth. You had instances when the song is soft, and suddenly it gains a burst of energy (0:36), yet the transitions between each section were great. The transitions are among the best I've heard in a very very long while, and the intro and outro are superb too. Awesome work.

Lastly, I'll comment about the percussion, even though there isn't that much to say about it. I'll just say that it was really fitting. The crash cymbals were used sparingly but effectively, and the tambourine and snare both kept up a great rhythm. No issues with the percussion either.

All in all, I have no suggestions to improve this, other than to extend it. It just sounds so fun to listen to as it is now, and I really wish there was more of it. Still, I enjoyed this a lot - keep up the great work, and keep on pumping out them awesome songs plz.

All I have to say is:

When and where?!

Very interesting combination

In my head, it's a conflicting image between a questing knight trotting in the countryside and a cowboy riding in the west.


This is amazing! You have outdone youself. Out of most ive heard this is by far the best ive heard! Its corny, its cool, its exiting, its smoothing, anything good resembles to this song, BRAVO BRAVO :)
