Just Blues
Score: 78.8%
Rank: 20th
Battle: 2006-03

Here's one instrumental. I didn't put drums this time, they just don't fit in this song. Maybe I'll put some voice in it, and I'm sure you'll be first to know. Put your comments and enjoy the blues.

Does this song not follow the Rules? Please Report Abuse

Hey Johnny, wonderful composition. your guitar playing is excelent.

it's a pity, though, that the recording  needs a bit of work qualitywise - fade in and outs, some noise reduction... however, i don't think it's bad.

As for the drums,  I think they would suit just perfect in there - either jazzy (brushes), or nice accoustic blues drums, I think they could do a lot to help you build the song up, or slow it down when it's needed. well, you probably need them to make the song stucture clearer.

All in all, it's a very good job, a light composition that cries for one more listen every time it ends.

Ah this is so so so very cool. I want some Postishead style vocals in there. I agree with Livadream though... waaaay to short. Beautiful guitar playing though. Stunning.

Very nice piece, Very good solo! a bit weird in the end over than armonizing to me.
Rhythm guitar could do a bit more.
Overall a lot of potential here.

This reminded me of 'Maggot Brain' by Funkadelic at first, but as EducatedGuess suggested, I could reeeaally imagine some Portishead-style vocals in this, it would give it quite a sultry mood.  And yes, definitely too short!

Ahh, I really like bluesy jazzy guitar ballads so much - and your playing is very good indeed. I think that this could be so much more though with the right percussion, and good use of cymbals to add another dimension an dbuild parts of it up as JBP mentioned.

Check out, for example, Riviera Paradise by Stevie Ray Vaughan

I could not see why I didn't post anything to this song - as I seem to have given it a very good rating...

Now everybody else has already said what I wanted to say... Lovely jazzy chords... Soft sounding, great for listening to before a night out... Or when you come home, drifting on a cloud...

Could use drums, but not necessarily... Could use vocals, but perhaps better to keep it in this form, as it obviously inspires people right now, because it's pure and feeds the longing....

Only thing is Too Bad about the editing-ticking sounds...
