I don't play much anymore, and haven't had a lot of time to record and write but I thought I'd bust out the guitar for a quick little song. This break from writing has really helped me analyze my own writing style, so this is kind of different for me.

Excuse the playing, my nails are all broken and I have trouble producing a good tone with just flesh.

This is awesome!

I almost gave you 4.5 stars for the bad tone you mentioned, but honestly the composition itself makes up for any inconsistency in tone.

Really cool, would you be open to doing a collaboration some time? Just curious.

I might be, it all depends on my schedule. I work two jobs so it's kind of hard to get free time for my music. I'm forcing myself to write and play again recently though, so just shoot me a pm or email and I'll get back to you ASAP.

Thanks for the review :)


For skill, always loved finger picking stuff, and your obviously very good at it, keep up the great work!

:O .

This is incredible.

Bravo bravo! This is beautiful! Such a pleasant track. I honestly think you couldn't have done much better of a job. The recording is very raw, which I think makes it all that much more beautiful. It's just pure sound.

As far as your fleshy picking... you're far above my skill. I can never get that clean of a pluck. Speaking of which, I've always wanted to know if fingernails help that much..?

Absolutely splendid piece. Downloaded, and I shall be listening to this quite often.

Darkmaster603 responds:

Thanks, spur of the moment thing, I originally planned on doing something big but I thought a raw recording sounded best. Fingernails are almost a requirement for a nylon string guitar. There's a very cold sound when using a pick (or too much finger nail) and a sloppy+warm sound with too much flesh (as you can tell from the recording).

Appreciate the review.
