The acoustic guitars sound so good. I like the song as a whole, very relaxed. Nice work.

easy to listen to. I'm usually hesitant when clicking on songs labelled as "'rock" on this website because I fear for my ears as well as having a hatred for anything even closely resembling death metal emo screamo trash, but this was very very nice i thoroughly enjoyed it!

I come from a completely different part of music with my most recent submissions being Ambient/Electronica with vocals and my past submissions being mostly Trance/Techno of some kind, but I liked this piece for it's ability to captivate me just like my favorite songs do, while still being simple, which parallels my own minimalistic style of music.

It reminded me of vacations. Of summer time and beaches, a welcome reminder of nice life will be once the blistering cold season's done and over with. Good job and keep it up!

And if you don't mind, maybe check some of my stuff out?

Thanks, a lot of my songs tend to have a very ambient vibe. You can listen to the whole EP here http://soundcloud.com/rayginzburg/sets/barriers-of-flight/

all instrumental, im not the best singer...

I thought it sounded rather nice to listen to. It might not be the most original or the most technical but it's still got a nice flow to it and it does come together as a track overall quite well. I think it would sound even nicer with some good clean vocal-work added in if you ever got the chance to find a vocalist to contribute.
The recording sounds pretty high-quality aswell, if you used a mic to record the Acoustic-work then may I ask what model microphone you used to record with? If not then never-mind, just curious :)

RayGinzburg responds:

This particular track my friend help be record. I am not sure what mic he used but I can find out. I'm glad you liked it check out the full EP at http://soundcloud.com/rayginzburg/sets/barriers-of-flight/

First of all, great sound. I like your chord progressions, and you sound like you have a lot of talent.
However, this is more along the lines of an acoustic jazz than acoustic rock. The minimalist sound, which is what I assume you're going for, sounds nice. It's easy to listen to and provides a nice background sort of music.
Overall great song, maybe a tad repetitive, but still enjoyable.

RayGinzburg responds:

Thanks! Newgrounds really has a limit on what genres you can classify songs as. So although I wouldn't necessarily classify this as rock it was the closest genre to choose.
