Re: Man with a Clan

This track sounds great, really fun! I'm ready to paint myself blue and don the tartan (I've got a good chunk of scotch somewhere in my british mutt DNA). That's the spirit! :D Don't feel bad about compositing the tracks, it's pretty standard practice, especially in the day of the DAW. Even in the ...

Re: Man with a Clan

Wow, very impressive! This is a great track, and I've added it to my Soundcloud playlist. 8) I agree the drums could be varied a bit more, and I might even bring the rhythm guitars up a bit relative to the drums, but I think it's a great song. Thanks for your kind words and the feedback! For drums,...

Re: Jotunheim - Playing live to backing tracks.

@ Rainmak3r The guitar is called a Penner. In 1983 I took some guitar lessons off of a fellow in my town. He had a luthier shop and was making a couple different body shapes by hand. There were not too many made as I think he needed to focus more on his carpentry business. I think less than 20 of t...

Re: Endless (melodic synth jam)

... My only note would be that it doesn't build up much: the progression seems to suggest something that will get louder over time, ... It does. I have used this or a similar progression before and it did include the crescendo and a build-up in instrumentation, not to mention continuing the progres...

Re: Lament

Truly gorgeous! Violas are among my favourite instruments in the orchestra, and your daughter played the part beautifully. I also had the vibe of a 70s band interlude: great work!

Re: Endless (melodic synth jam)

This is indeed quite cinematic! The chord progression evokes images of the emotional ending of an 80s movie: I've used this reference before, but a good example is the finale of Black Rain. My only note would be that it doesn't build up much: the progression seems to suggest something that will get ...

Re: Jotunheim - Playing live to backing tracks.

Nice track, it feels like one of those instrumentals bands in the 70s like Uriah Heep could write! What guitar are you playing by the way? It's gorgeous but I don't recognize the model.

Re: Gör mig hel [prog pop]

Wow, this is great! Rhythmically it reminded me a lot of Pineapple Thief, one of my favourite bands: Bruce Soord has this way of painting intricate textures with an acoustic guitar that still manage to be pleasant and interesting, and I think you did something very similar there! The solo is also qu...

Re: Man with a Clan

:shock: Is there no end to your talent? 8) Fantastic guitar soloing, I also loved the guitar rhythm progression. I wish I could play like you! Great track. Thanks, you're way too kind as well! And I wish I could play as it sounds like in the solos as they come out, a lot of stitching there :lol:

A clear energetic pattern of riffs, nothing superfluous, ascetic and harsh. Masterwork.
Thanks, you're always too kind! :D

Re: Icecaps (Melt My Shaky Values)

Solid song! I was reminded of Rolling Stones too.
